CHITWAN- Bharatpur Hospital staff, including doctors and health workers, have shut down all services except the emergency ward on Wednesday in protest of the Hospital Development Committee (HDC) decision to set up a revolving fund in the name of a woman who died while undergoing treatment on Monday.
Following the death of Sharada Raut, who was admitted to the hospital for delivery on Friday, her family and relatives have accused the doctors’ negligence that eventually led to her death. The new born, however, is said to be doing fine. A meeting between HDC and agitating family members on Tuesday night to resolve the matter agreed on setting up a revolving fund worth Rs 1 million in the name of the deceased, providing the three children of Raut with free education and forming a panel to investigate into the case. The fund will be set up by deducting certain amount of the staffs’ salaries.
The agitating staff claim to continue their protests until the HDC revokes its decision to deduct their wages to set up the fund. Medical Superintendent at the hospital Hari Bahadur KC said that efforts are underway to seek an amicable solution to the issue.
