ATTENDANTS OF a patient Kamlesh (54) created a scene at the KGMU’s trauma centre, alleging that expired medicines were being given to the patient.

Kamlesh was injured during the violence that rocked the State Capital on Friday.

Kamlesh, who was admitted to the trauma centre, was undergoing treatment.

Her attendants saw two expired injections — Atropine and Promethazine — in the medicine tray kept beside her bed. She is lying in bed no 16 in the surgery ward.d.On seeing the expired medicines, the attendants created a big chaos that compelled the KGMU and district authorities to rush to the spot.

Later, the doctors tried to convince the attendants stating that the injections were not listed in the medicine slip of Kamlesh. Besides, they were not meant for any patients.

Kamlesh is having Diabetic Ketoaciddosis problem, a state when glucose does not enter the body cells. This gives her fasting syndrome and the doctors said she might need breathing support system, too.

“She is in a critical state and will be given adequate treatment. No expired injections are given to any patient here,” claimed the trauma centre in-charge Dr AA Mahdi.

As the attendants did not buy the logic put forth by the doctors, they got her discharged from the KGMU to admit her to some other hospital. In the family of Kamlesh, three persons, including a five-year-old girl Diksha, suffered bullet injuries during the violence.
