UP doctor under fire for ‘injecting man he declared dead’
Dr Dharmendra Kumar Saini
Insensitive treatment with critically ill patients is no new practice in government hospitals in Uttar Pradesh, but now a doctor in CGHS Moradabad has set an example in crude behaviour by pumping seven lifesaving drugs into a dead body.
Moradabad District Government Hospital has ordered a an inquiry against Dr Dharmendra Kumar Saini, a doctor of Provincial Medical Services (PMS), who injected seven life-saving drugs into his veins of a dead body, ignoring the opposition of other doctors.
On May 29, a middle-aged person injured in an accident was brought to the hospital. He gained consciousness briefly before he was declared dead by Dr Tarun Yadav on June 21.
He later sent the body to the morgue.
Dr Saini, who took over after Dr Yadav, ordered a ward boy to bring back the body. He allegedly administered seven life-saving injections, including anesthesia, to the body.
When some juniors protested, Dr Saini allegedly said he could do anything because he was a senior.
