Neglected Hospital Protocols in Mandvi Tragedy: Committee Bans Operation Theater Use

Investigation Committee Submits Preliminary Report on Mandle Scandal

The investigation committee has submitted the initial report of the Mandle jewelry scam. The report highlights the significant impact on the events due to influential forces. The absence of a clock in the hospital’s rounds and the lack of proper medical staff and infrastructure are also noted in the report. Moreover, there is a mention of the non-compliance with the hospital’s protocols and the hospital’s failure to follow government guidelines and receive grants.

In the samples taken under the committee’s supervision, symptoms of Pseudomonas infection were found in three patients. Other samples were sent for testing at Ahmedabad Civil Hospital. The report indicates that results for these samples are expected within three days. Currently, due to the ban on using the operation theater for any procedure, further investigations are hampered. The report mentions that the hospital does not have an MOU with the government and does not receive any government grants.

10th January: 29 Eye Surgeries

Dr. Nilam Patel revealed that Mandle Ramnand Eye Hospital, being a private hospital, does not have an MOU with the government and does not receive any grants. The hospital has been conducting eye surgeries for years, and on 10th January, 29 eye surgeries took place. Some beneficiaries faced eye discomfort, which was reported on the 15th of the same month. The government took immediate action upon receiving the news at 6 AM. The investigative team reached the incident site at 8 AM, and a thorough examination took place. On the 16th, nine experts visited the site for further inspection, as five cases of eye-related issues after Motea’s eye surgery were reported.

Several Errors Found During Investigation

On the 10th, individuals who underwent surgery had their cases examined. The investigation revealed concerns about infection, leading to their referral to MNG Hospital. This investigation is preliminary, and the committee has discussed the patients’ complaints. It includes an examination of the operation theater’s condition, adherence to protocols, and compliance with guidelines.

The examination has uncovered numerous errors, including discrepancies in the operation theater’s records and failures to follow protocols.
