Telangana: Pregnant woman denied | Hyderabad News Today


HYDERABAD: A hospital superintendent and a duty doctor at a community health centre (CHC) in Achampet of Nagarkurnool district in Telangana were suspended on Wednesday for “denying” admission to a pregnant woman, who had tested positive for Covid-19.
After being denied admission at CHC Achampet, the woman delivered her baby on the road outside the hospital on Tuesday, health officials said.
The pregnant woman came to the CHC and after tests were conducted, she tested positive for Covid-19 following which the doctors did not admit her and told her to go to some other health centre, the officials said. After the delivery, the woman was finally brought inside and the newborn and her mother are doing fine, they said.
Terming it as an act of gross negligence and violation of rules by the staff concerned, the Telangana Vaidhya Vidhana Parishad commissioner Dr K Ramesh Reddy placed the superintendent of the hospital and the duty doctor at CHC Achampet under suspension with immediate effect.
Clear instructions were given to all government hospitals not to deny any admission to pregnant women even if they test positive for Covid-19, the official said.
The two doctors were surrendered to the director of Public Health with a request to initiate disciplinary action on both of them, he said.
The superintendent of District Hospital Nagarkurnool was directed to conduct a detailed enquiry and submit a report to the commissioner of TVVP (which comes under Health Medical and Family Welfare Department).

Telangana: Missing for 25 days, | Hyderabad News Today


HYDERABAD: It is going to be a new challenge to the police searching for the missing Indian Army jawan with the turn of the month.
With his monthly salary expected to be deposited in his account, police are now literally keeping their fingers crossed on what his move would be.
B Sai Kiran Reddy of Siddipet district went missing on December 6.
He withdrew all his money and also the small amounts that his family has been depositing just so that he does not find it difficult to survive. But now with his salary expected to be credited into his account from the Army, the jawan will have access to more money. What has become unpredictable is what he will do with that.
Will he continue to be in Telangana as he has been over the last 20 days, as he has been in hiding? Or make a large withdrawal to travel somewhere else? It could also be possible that he could make use of the money to pay for his stay wherever he will. Police are keeping their fingers crossed on his next move.
“We are sparing no effort to trace him. We have been tracking every movement and we are getting to know where he is withdrawing money. But he has been elusive as it appears he has deliberately been trying to hide. He has neither reported for work at Faridkot at his unit nor contacted his family or friends,” Husnabad ACP Satish told TOI.
The 21-year-old jawan Sai Kiran Reddy of Pothireddypalli in Cheriyal of Siddipet left Hyderabad by flight to Delhi on December 5.
The following day he was supposed to report at his unit in Faridkot but got down the train at Bathinda and took a cab back to Delhi. He then surfaced in Telangana.
Police have found that he withdrew money in Karimnagar, Narsampet in Warangal.
The last trace was in Bhadrachalam where he withdrew even small amounts which the family had deposited for his sustenance at the suggestion of the police.

The tree had got uprooted on the outskirts of Suddala village in Konaraopet mandal in the agriculture fields belonging to Burra Bhoomaih Goud and Burra Ramesh Goud.

“The tree looked majestic when it was standing but now it was fallen,” Prakash said.
He took permission from another farmer to draw water from a bore in his agricultural field and began to water the fallen tree.
With the tree coming to see and new leaves seen on it, Prakash’s heart revived.

Asaduddin Owaisi: Will BJP deny tickets to MLAs with more | Live Newspaper Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday claimed that there were 150 MLAs in Uttar Pradesh who have more than two children. He challenged UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath to state clearly if BJP will deny tickets to such legislators in ensuing polls to t state assembly.
Speaking to reporters, Owaisi demanded the Centre launch an inquiry into the Pegasus or at least allow a debate in Parliament over the issue. “When inquiries are being done on the Pegasus-phone hacking issue in Israel and France, why is the Modi-government scared to even constitute a commission to inquire into it?” Owaisi questioned.
The AIMIM president also lashed out at PM Narendra Modi for his perceived silence on the issue of “China sitting in Indian territory.” “Why doesn’t the Modi government lead a delegation of MPs and journalists to Depsang, Gogra, Hot Spring and Demchok to show that these are still under control. But the reality is that the Chinese soldiers continue to be in control of our territory…,” Owaisi alleged.
The AIMIM president also lambasted the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh and Centre for allegedly neglecting the health sector.
“There are four lakh acutely malnourished children in UP, severe shortage of doctors and specialists in public, community health centres and sub-centres. The Modi-government had filed an affidavit in Supreme Court in 2020 stating international experience shows that any coercion to have a certain number of children is counter productive and leads to demographic distortions,” he said.
Owaisi also demanded the Centre give jobs to crores who lost jobs due to the alleged mismanagement of the second wave of Covid-19.

HYDERABAD: In a second incident, reported within a span of few days, another junior doctor was assaulted at a government-run hospital in the city on Saturday by a patient’s relatives.
The latest incident took place at Niloufer Hospital where final year student, Dr Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, was attacked by attendants of a patient allegedly for honking at them as they were blocking the exit of the ICU building.
Niloufer superintendent Dr Murali Krishna lodged a compliant with the Nampally police.
In his complaint, the superintendent stated: “Dr Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, final year post graduate of paediatric department, was assaulted by attendants of patient Md Shafuddin on the hospital premises in the intensive care building ground floor. Requesting for necessary action against the accused.”
As per the complaint, the incident took place around 2 pm. The accused started abusing the doctor when he honked signalling at them to clear the way. The attendants opened the car door, hit the doctor in the face and tore his shirt. A female attendant also used abusive language against Reddy.
TOI’s attempts to reach Dr Reddy or the family involved in the incident for their comments failed to yield any result.
This comes close on the heels of the previous incident reported from the Government Chest Hospital where a junior doctor was assaulted, leading to unrest among the medical fraternity and boycott of duties. “We constantly work in fear of losing the confidence of the patient’s attendants and what consequences we will have to bear. If the public treats us this way, despite us working for 36 hours at a stretch and under stressful conditions, it’ll lead to trauma,” said a female junior doctor from the hospital.
Meanwhile, members of the Telangana Junior Doctors Association (TJUDA) said that these repeated incidents have led to many doctors slipping into depression. “Many doctors are now facing mental health issues due to the tremendous workload and shoddy treatment meted out to them by patients’ attendants,” said Dr Dharmula Sagar, president TJUDA.
