Scissors Left By NIMS Surgeon In Stomach Removed After 70 Da

Criminal negligence on the part of the surgeons of the popular state-owned Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) pushed a woman close to the jaws of death.

According to information received, a 33-year-old housewife Maheshwari Choudary of Mangalhat in Hyderabad was admitted to NIMS on Friday with acute abdominal pain. Later, an X-ray revealed that artery forceps (in the shape of scissors) firmly embedded in her stomach were the reason for the stomach pain. The hospital authorities immediately admitted Choudary and conducted an emergency procedure on Saturday morning to remove the forceps, known as clamps and used by surgeons to remove tissues and hold objects during surgery.

According to her relatives, Maheswari had undergone surgery for hernia at NIMS on December 2, 2018, and had since then been complaining of severe stomach pain. "She had started complaining of stomach ache within days of the surgery. We tried different kinds of medicines but her condition did not improve. This was totally due to the negligence of the surgeons, and she had to suffer immensely," said Mahadev, a close relative.

NIMS Director Dr K Manohar said that the hospital had set up a three-member committee to inquire into the incident and submit a report in the next few days. He said that action would be taken on the basis of the report. Stating that the incident was unfortunate, Dr Manohar said that the doctors of the hospital always took utmost precautions, and that no such incident had happened in the hospital in the last 30 years.

The housewife was reportedly operated upon for hernia by Dr Bheerappa and Dr Venu in the surgical gastroenterology department, with the doctors assisted by staff nurse Saleema. According to reports they left a pair of scissors inside Choudary's abdomen at the end of surgery. Claiming that Dr Bheerappa was callous and also harsh with them, the patient's relatives staged a dharna before the hospital and lodged a complaint with the Punjagutta police.
