Another Victim of Medical Negligence in Pakistan

 

Karachi: 9 months pregnant Shaista Umer, lost her life due to mismanagement during a surgery at the hands of Dr. Shahnaz Hussaini of Liaqat National Hospital on 21st June.

Shaista Omer, mother of three, was 9 months pregnant with the delivery due on the 24th June 2015. The case was of a baby with a cord around the neck that required a C-section as recommended by her consultant doctor, Dr. Shahnaz Hussaini.

She felt pain in the early morning of 21st June and got admitted at the hospital at 10.45 am. Dr. Shahnaz Akbar Hussaini, a gynecologist at Liaqat National Hospital, treated her case haphazardly and severed the complications. The patient eventually died due to profuse bleeding.

Shaista’s husband, Omer, hysterically informed that that the doctor was trying to flee the scene with her bag on her shoulder but he had urged her to wait until the patient recover.

Dr. Shahnaz forcefully stayed in the ICU where doctors tried to get Shaista’s heart beat back. She was put on a ventilator and when Omer went to ICU to see her, the scene was unimaginable.

“There was blood everywhere and Shaista’s lower body part was dripping with blood. It was then I realized that Shaista had been mismanaged.”

On protesting, he was told that his wife was no more. “The doctors told that she had died during the surgery,” he reported tearfully, “We completely hold Dr. Shahnaz and team of Liaqat National Hospital , lead by Dr. Farha, responsible for my wife’s demise. She was kept at the hospital for more than 9 hours without proper attention despite knowing it was a regular case of C-section.”

Moreover, Omer stated that he had repeatedly requested Dr. Shahnaz, who negligently arrived when it was too late for Shaista.

This carelessness from Dr. Shahnaz Hussaini meant that patient was left in the hands of junior doctors who sabotaged the case.

The demised family has pleaded the relevant authorities to terminate the license of Dr. Shahnaz and rusticate Dr. Farha, ensuring both are not allowed to conduct medicine for their entire career.

“We demand the strictest action to be taken in this regard by the courts of Pakistan to ensure that incidents like these do not happen again at the hands of such irresponsible doctors.” Stated a family member.

  1. Feel sorry for the family but Aliza how can you just cover one side of the story? You should cover the hospital part as well. In Pakistan this is very common to put a blame on the doctor/hospital for any mortality that takes place inside the hospital.

    1. This is not one case, I also lost my baby boy due to her negligience.But I pray to Allah to punish those who plays with the patient and their babies

  2. Similar negligence was done by so called Dr Fozia at Dar us Sehat Hospital Gulistan e Johar, which cost life of my friend. These murderers should be behind the bar.

    1. Sorry to say that this is not only one story of doctor girri. .

  5. Doctors do blunders not mistake in pakistan and nobody ask them a single question in pakistan doctors are killers

  6. @Saima Munir.. Your response doesn’t seems reasonable here. I got the complete details of this case and Dr. Shahnaz Hussaini looks completely responsible for this negligence. Tell me:

    – Why she was not responding or replying the messages when Omar was trying to contact her since morning?
    – Why she was trying to flee from the hospital considering the fact that Shaista (RIP) was expired during surgery?
    – Why labor room staff was not allowing Omar to enter or see her wife during that 8 to 9 hours?
    – What does EMERGENCY means?
    – What happened, if the same situation repeats with you. Like you are feeling pain and Dr. comes after 8-9 hours for delivery. hunh..

    Our hospitals are butchers houses and no one is here to correct the things. Similarly our country is full of such culprits just due to the thinking and support of people like you..!!

  7. Completely agree with first comment that how can anyone come to any conclusion regarding the situation without the other side of the story. This is irresponsible journalism because the authors intent with the title is as if all doctors a doing a bad job.

    Authors of Such articles that are printed should be taken to the court of law

    If the family feels that they are right then they should go to court , and not have such stories printed which are ridiculously on sided

    1. There is ample proof that the hospital’s staff is to be blamed here. The doctor could have avoided this unfortunate event by at least arriving on time. Also, this isn’t the first time that this doctor has displayed negligence. There has been cases in the past which support this argument. This one has just met the light of the day.
      Moreover, sir, this is the internet. If you still get offended by what’s being posted here then you might as well stop using it.

  8. This case is simple and clear , if the patient was waiting for gyni and her husband had requested her to visit hospital asap ,she wouldn’t turn up knowing the fact of cord issue and on top of that it was C-section case , she should have to be highly responsible specialy while dealing with this complicated case ,the whole respinsibility belongs to Murderer Shehnaz , she shouldn’t be honoured with a word of doctor anymore , the height of irresponsibility she has shown i think an ordinary person doesn’t neglect an animal dieng on road and she was aware about the situation so well , she is truely and wholy responsible for this murder …!

  9. I leI learned about the story from the Facebook page medical negligence in Pakistan. Now the beaches been blocked so I searched through Google and this page came up. I was reading the comment posted by the alleged doctors daughter that nowhere in the world a consultant do the vaginal delivery. this contradicts with the earlier suggestion of an elective C-section. Then the other argument is that new consultant does the normal delivery anywhere in the world it’s always going to conducted by the junior doctors this is absolutely not true all over the world responsible consultants are always there by the side of their patients if they book a patient in their name. It was also stated by the alleged doctors daughter that it was a case of amniotic fluid embolism which resulted in D I C. However, any any responsible consultant knows that any keys off normal delivery again resolved in and the audit fluid embolism so the consultant should be there by the side of the patient so that if certain unfortunate incidents do occur then it is managed right away. That’s the job of a consultant. Arriving late after the desaster has set in and trying to revive a dead woman doesn’t just cut it.

  10. This is criminal negligence by the Doctor. There is no check on doctors here in Pakistan. Even in Emergencies they have junior doctors. My Uncle died of such negligence. When he was taken to hospital in Emergency, he went there on his foot and in spite of the fact that Junior doctor was told that has has problem of water in body. Doctor just laid down him stratight and he died at the spot. Such patients are laid down on bed 90 degree angle but……..unfortunately. The family did not raise voice against this mishandling.This medical professional is not being run on SOP’s. Just hit and trial method.

    This case should be taken as precedence and first step should be to make Emergencies of hospital a model. Patient first handler should be the most senior doctor. PMDC is involved in criminal negligence along with Government who is not serious in making the procedures transparent. Lives of poor masses are more important than making roads and again and again roads. There are other needs as well…

  11. Dt Shahnaz Akber Hussaini is famous for such irresponsible behaviors. Sometime earlier to shaista omer case, during a cc-section, she did cut uterine artery of patient. And the patient died. She even doesnt know the basic anatomy. She is only suitable for OPD. Not labor room.

  12. Gyenea doctors are just new version of daai. At birth of my first child, it was mid night and only junior dr and one nurse was available. On duty senior dr was at home. They stitched back epi and placenta was still inside. They informed dr on fone she said that she is coming for c-section to take placenta out and baby was sent ti nursery. This is the story of doctors. Even daai/dola are better than these zanani doctors.

  13. i am sanam. mera operation july 2015 me hua at lnh and mere dr shahnaz the. but mera opera dr humera n dr shaista ne kia.mere tanke bht krb hogai.ek mahini se mera ilag hyd agha khan me chal raha ha.
