Medical Negligence death In MY hospital, Family prepares pyre on premises as mark of “Protest”

Indore : The family member and friends of Prem Kashyap a 15 year-old-boy who died allegedly because of medical negligence in MY Hospital attempted to burn the boy’s body inside the MY Hospital premises as a mark of protest against doctors and the hospital.  The deceased’s family started preparing a pyre to perform the last rites on the hospital premises. They started piling up logs and cow dung cakes at the hospital premises. The agitating family were also demanding that the post-mortem should not be done at the MY Hospital but at Aurobindo Hospital. However, police pacified the family members, and they dismantled the pyre and allowed the post-mortem in the MY Hospital. The family members had also staged a demonstration at Malwa Mill Square against the doctors. Prem Kashyap, 15, a resident of Goma Ki Phel, died allegedly due to the negligence of the doctors and staff in treatment. The family members said that the nurse had given a wrong injection after which she called the unit in-charge Dr Yamini Gupta who confirmed the same and tried to change the treatment papers.
