Leading Doctors at GMCH Are Being Investigation for Malpractice in Emergency OT

Guwahati: A number of prominent medical professionals at the Gauhati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) have come under scrutiny for alleged errors in the Emergency Operation Theatre (OT) during the past few months.

The incident came to light after a patient’s carer earlier complained to the Superintendent Abhijit Sarma about a bunch of scammers at GMCH for defrauding in the name of buying surgical and medical equipment worth Rs 35,000.

Speaking to the media, GMCH Superintendent Abhijit Sarma said, “The incident about the malpractice at the Emergency OT, GMCH has come to our notice after a complaint was filed by a patient’s attendant. We formed an enquiry committee and accordingly, the committee’s chairman cum Deputy Superintendent Dr DR Das submitted a report regarding the malpractice by a contractual employee (Cardiothoracic and Neuroscience Centre) Rubul Kalita who had also confessed about the involvement of some doctors into the incident.”

The GMCH Superintendent stated emphatically that everyone is subject to the law and that, if proven guilty, a FIR has been filed against the offenders.

“The police investigation is on and the contractual employee Rubul Kalita has been dismissed from his job and he was arrested. During an interrogation, Rubul had named some doctors whom he believes to be involved in the scam. I have insisted the Bhangagarh police to take action against all the culprits, if found guilty,” added Sarma.

Sarma added that four additional ward boys at the CN Center are being investigated for allegedly taking part in the scheme.

“An enquiry is being carried out on all the four ward boys and if they are being found guilty, they will be dismissed immediately,” Sarma added further.
