Medanta the Medicity
A case of Hospital Negligence

I want to highlight that Hospital is not safe as all test equipment OT rooms, ICUs are infected with all types of dangerous Bectrial infections resistant to most of the Antibiotics. These may be termed as superbugs. During your stay and treatment in the hospital your are going to receive one infection at each stage. The Antibiotic treatment of one lead to another infection resistant to many antibiotic leaving for very limited choice and finally a new variant resistant to all Antibiotics. My brother-in-law visited Medanta for consultation of breathlessness and tiredness. He was diagnosed with the problem of Aortic Valve and advised for immediate AVR (Aortic Valve Replacement). We admitted him in the hospital under Mr Trehan who first advised Angiography to rule out any Coronary Artery Disease. The test suggested Non-critical CAD and only AVR was needed. They started all Pre-Op tests. After 4th day of stay He was diagnosed with Hepatitis B and E.Coli infection. E.coli was sensitive to all Antibiotics. The first which he might have acquired after Angiography and other tests. He was discharged from the hospital with suggested course of Antibiotics.

He was readmitted after the completing the Antibiotic course, Surgery was performed, shifted to ICU for 2 days and then to room. The Urine Culture test revealed that he has received another Bacterial infection named Entrococus resistant to most of the Antibiotics. This he might have acquired either in OT or ICU. The Antibiotic treatment started during the stay of hospital. On the day of discharge Urine culture was done again while antibiotics were continued. The test report revealed another dangerous bacterial infection named Klebsiella pneumoniae ssp pneumoniae, resistant to almost all antibiotics. Now think of the person who has just undergone for major heart surgery with replacement of a aortic valve with a mechanical valve is infected with bacteria resistant to all antibiotics.

We have almost spent more than 4 Lacks in this hospital, borrowed from different sources and still see a dark future as there is no money left even for routine treatment. Can someone suggest what we should do, what we can expect from this hospital which looks great but a potential source of life threatening infections.
