Doctor applies adhesive instead of stitches to child injury

Jogulamba, Telangana : In a shocking incident, a private hospital in Jogulamba Gadwala district of Telnagana used adhesives to treat a serious injury on a child’s head, sparking outrage among the family and community. Dr. Nagarjuna, a qualified MBBS doctor is under investigation for treating a seven-year-old boy’s injury with adhesive ‘Fevi Kwick’, causing the wound to worsen. The boy’s parents filed a police complaint, prompting an investigation.

Vamsi Krishna, his wife Sunitha, and son Praveen Choudhary attended a wedding in Jogulamba Gadwal district, Telangana. Praveen sustained a wound near his left eye after falling while playing. His parents took him to a nearby hospital where Dr Nagarjuna and his assistants treated the injury using ‘Fevi Kwick’ instead of stitching it. Praveen’s pain intensified, and his parents discovered the inappropriate treatment upon consulting another doctor. A video of the incident, showing Vamsi Krishna confronting Dr. Nagarjuna and his assistants about their negligence, went viral on social media. The exchange revealed Dr. Nagarjuna’s claim that the mishap occurred due to a power outage in the hospital. “No.. No.. it was happened by mistake and there is no power supply in the hospital when we are treating your son”, the doctor replied with a low voice. However, the furious parent questioned the doctor’s lack of common sense in using Fevi Kwick and not employing battery-operated lights during the power cut.
