On Tuesday, she passed away following complications, that included heart, kidney and live failure, the health department announced. “She complained of pain in her legs hours after her November 7 surgery. I wish the doctors had taken her complaints seriously. The complications of the surgery killed her” said her brother Lawrence, who is a sports equipment salesman.

After suspecting a blood clot, the doctors shifted her to RGGGH at 9 AM, the next day. On 9th of November, doctors removed her right leg. She underwent revision surgery on Monday to remove more dead issues. Since then, she has been on a ventilator.
Dr. E. Theranirajan, Dean of RGGGH, said “The muscle breakdown led to an increase in presence of a protein called myoglobin in the urine and elevated creatinine levels. The led to kidney, liver, and heart. Her blood pressure dropped. Despite intensive care, including dialysis through the night, her condition deteriorated”
The incident created huge outrage among the public.
We need to measure quality of care on an ongoing basis to ensure no one is harmed. Sadly, the hospital lobby is too powerful and Govt does not care. This is not even seen a priority by any of the stakeholders. Patients, please remember what you do not know can kill you.
