I left my mother in lurch — Ducked & Dumped

It is the story of My Mother aged 75 being treated callously by Doctors at Multi Speciality Hospital at Tanjore.

My mother was in all pain when I visited her around 7.30 am.., sunday morning on 08.05.2016.

She was not feeling well and had difficulty in breathing .As I was emotionally charged and sunday being holiday and no specialist available in kumbakonam .

I decided to take my mother to Tanjore by car along with father and brother. We eventually reached Tanjore by 9.30 am and after priliminary enquiry , my mother was examined at Emergency ward . E C G and ECO were taken and No concrete answar was available from them.

They only threatened to have my mother admitted in I C U failing which the life of the patient could not be assured. Being the poor guys with no intention of arguments , we obliged.

The sunday went by and the so called cardiologist was not available on that day. By monday​ 9th , he made an appearance by 11.30 am and visited my mother. He told categorically said to us to have angiogram done , then only the extent of block known and further treatment to be undertaken.

Once again we poor guys followed the suit. It was done on sunday .
While my mother was subjected to Angiogram , we all were called by “Company of Doctors ” to explain the case to us. They suggested a “SEVEN DAY ” package program me​ in which the blocks of the size of 95 % . 85 % and 45 % could be removed by so called “STENTS ” costing each around Rs 90,000. They told us that this had to be done at once and immediately attended to citing the condition of anonymity.

So perturbed and with no God Father for guidance , we just prayed to chief (Thief) Doctor for Mercy and save my Mother who is all to us. He after getting monetary confirmation , went about doing the business . Every thing was done in about half an hour and he came out informing that all the ” THREE STENTS ” were implanted and mother O K.

We saw our mother coming in stretcher breathing with inhaler and waving her hand to us about the difficulties .

The situation was so charged that we were speechless. She was then shifted to I C U . No one was allowed inside citing disturbances .
By about 8.30 pm , all we got was ” mother pulse rate is going down ” and ” we are trying our best”. The so called specialist later visited leisurely and told us in English Terms . The cause of death is accidental . It is called ” Thoracic Thrombosis”. T

GOD CALLED ” RAMAMURTHY “.
My father would fondly remember those days when he was working at then Madras and in one of the occasions , he had a chance to meet the god of golen times – Doctor of Doctorate – Mr Ramamurthy whose Idol stands tall with the spirit of service to Mankind ( in the Government Hospital Chennai ) among the filth and fancy of todays world.

He would invariably ask his patients to walk infront of HIM and by noticing their stance and stamina , he would guide them to safty taking into consideration the psycho and somatic conditions. In Todays World. Money Matters . Every thing else is Nothing ..,
Finally, I have decided to SHOOT THE MESSENGER to PMO , CHIEF SECRETORY,TAMIL NADU HEALTH DEPARTMENT as well .
The pertinent questions we ask are as follows. The specialty hospitals are today money spinning machine and they never take life so seriously.

1. why is that the condition of my mother who is so fragile was ignored.
2. when they assured to have one stent inserted one at a time, they did just opposite​ of what they said. All three stents supposedly implanted in one go ignoring the condition of my mother.
3. We do not really know how many are inserted or they really done it. It is a million doller question.
4. we are going to file an R T I to get the facts and further occurrence of such thing stopped forthwith.
5. Such an atrocity need to be stopped as the doctors are acting as SALE AGENTS for the money they receive from hospitals with perquisites.
6.In the words of BHARATHIAR – ” ENDRU THANIYUM IN THA MANITHANIN PANA WETTAI AND ROUWTHRAM PAZHAGU FOR RETURN OF GOLEN REA OF RAMAMURHY AND ETAL.
