Outrage as Indian doctors prop patient's head with his own amputated leg

UP Two doctors two nurses suspended after video shows accident victim using severed leg as pillow

INDIAN authorities have suspended two doctors and launched an investigation after a patient's severed leg was used as a pillow to prop up his head, a hospital official said today. Weve set up a committee.

Mr Ghanshyam, 28, a school bus conductor, had lost one of his legs when the bus turned turtle in Lehcura area in Jhansi district on Saturday. Earlier past year, over 30 children had died in Gorakhpur's BRD Medical College and Hospital after oxygen supply was disrupted over non-payment of dues.

When the insensitive approach of the doctors was brought to the notice of CMS, Dr Harish Chandra Arya, he said the matter would be investigated and strong action would be taken against the persons responsible for the act. The doctors at Maharani Laxmi Bai Medical College put the amputated leg under the victim's head to help him.

While a few students suffered minor injuries, the bus cleaner Ghanshyam's left leg got severed.

"When we reached the hospital, we saw his leg being used as a head rest".

Johnston said weak Samsung demand was bad news for rivals such as Apple as well as suppliers like Broadcom, Qualcomm and others. If true, then expect this one critical upgrade to shift next year - when Apple is rumored to launch the feature on its iPhones.

'I repeatedly asked the doctors to intervene but they refused.

It is unclear from video footage of the incident if he was aware of what he was lying on while his severed leg was propped up. "Finally, after about two hours, I managed to get a pillow for him from the market and that's when the leg was removed", Janaki Prasad, a relative of the victim told NDTV.

Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said the state government will take action once the full information about the incident is available.

A government spokesperson said the staff who have been suspended are Dr Alok Agarwal (senior resident - orthopaedics), Dr Mahendra Pal Singh (emergency medical officer), sister in-charge Deepa Narang and Shashi Srivastava, a nurse.
