Medanta The Medicity — cancer patient treated at medanta neglected and refused admission when brought to emergency by the onco team
To Whomsoever it May Concern
This is with reference to Patient Rita Puri MM00280323 who has been diagnosed with Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma and has been given R-DHAP Chemotherapy on 28th Februrary.She is being looked after by Dr.Nitin Sood/Dr.Roshan and Dr.Amrita Ramaswamy.
After her 1st chemo she has been in the hospital for stabilization and has been readmitted twice within 12-24hours with complaint of Fever/high BP/altered sensorium.
Even before chemo was administered, only biopsy results were awaited she was admitted on 24th February also with the complaint of Altered Sensorium.However this time when the case was same I.e. on 27th March and bought to emergency as she was not responding and eating the Onco Team refused to admit her saying that she is fine as per them and the review should he done under Hepatology as she is has CLD as well.
It was enough of a shock to see 2 doctors give different opinions...Onco says she is fine Hepatology admits her in ICU stating she could go in COMA.
1.symptoms of altered semsorium which has been a sign with the patient before n after chemo and is closely related to the ailment of Cancer Why did the ONCO team not take responsibility
2.After a day in ICU.the hepatology cleared that it was not their case and I had to run to Dr.sood to update and ask him why this lapse and take her in Onco admission.A day lost for the fault of 2 doctors refusing to take her admission in Emegency Dr.Amrita refused the emergency team on the phone and dr.roshan visited and wrote the attached note.
WHY THIS HARASSMENT WAS DONE..
WHY DID THE Oncology Team not take responsibility of their patient and pass the buck to Hepatology who have just been administering her for CLD and not the Primary Team.
I have come to this amazing hospital for my mother to get the best care and this is what in return I'm receiving.
Kindly help in getting me to understand and justify this situation.
Its has been an exploitation of the Patient and the Family.
She is currently in ICU fighting for life...even a minute of negligence is not acceptable then how come such qualified doctors make such a mistake.
My mother is at the end of her life..we r trying our best getting her to the best hospital expecting the best doctors to take care of her and this is in return what I receive...No onus taken of the Patient...
I wish to lodge a complaint for my grievance and the mental harassment that me n my sister went through.
I could have lost her due to this stupid decisions taken by the Onco Team.
