Doctors accused of using man's foot as pillow after amputating his leg

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

In the meantime, the Uttar Pradesh government is investigating the hospital.

In a shocking revelation, an investigation has been launched after a bus crash victim's amputated foot was used as a pillow in a government-run hospital. Administrators at the hospital also vowed "strict action" amid accusations of medical negligence.

Ghanshyam's mother and brother-in-law brought him to hospital after the bus he was in overturned while the driver tried trying to avoid hitting a tractor on Saturday.

Two doctors have been suspended pending investigation, she added.

The NHRC has observed that the contents of the reports, if true, amount to an "unethical and negligent act done by the doctors and nurses, which is not only in violation of the medical norms, but also amounts to violation of the right to dignity of the patient, who was already undergoing trauma, due to the amputation of his leg".

The relatives of the man, who was identified as 28-year-old Ghanshyam, later told reporters that the hospital staff ignored their requests that he be given a pillow.

Reports of his clashes with star forward Neymar have been frequent and started as early as November, per Le Parisien (h/t Sport ). The French outfit were dismissed at the Round of 16 stage after losing both home and away to the reigning European champions.

Relatives of Ghanshyam Singh have alleged that doctors were the ones to place the foot under his head as a pillow. "I repeatedly asked the doctors to intervene but they refused".

Taking cognisance of the incident, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had announced a probe even as he announced a compensation of Rs 2,00,000 for the patient whose amputated leg was used as a pillow.

India's state-run hospitals are often ill-equipped, severely underfunded and stretched to breaking point.

Medical care facilities have reached a new all-time low point in Indian history.

Last year, dozens of children died in a single week at a government hospital in Uttar Pradesh that suffered oxygen shortages. In another incident reported last month, a quack was arrested for using a common needle on a syringe and infecting 46 people with HIV.
