Doctors are hailed as healers and protectors of lives, but two doctors at the Jodhpur Umaid Hospital put their personal enmities before the welfare of the patient, resulting in the death of a helpless newborn.

A pregnant woman had been brought to the hospital for an emergency C-section when the fetus was in distress. When she was taken into the operation theatre and was lying on the table during surgery, two doctors got into a verbal spat.

As the doctors were arguing, they continued on with the work, but the newborn did not survive the ordeal. The entire incident between the two doctors was caught on camera and the video showing the callous attitude has since then gone viral.  

“When the woman was admitted, the fetus was in distress. It had a low heartbeat. We will probe the reason for the newborn’s death,” said the Superintendent of the Hospital.

AL Bhat, the principal of Sampurananda Medical College said both the doctors were immediately removed from duty.

“A committee has been established to look into the matter and based on this committee’s report, a strict action will be taken against them,” Bhat added.

According to reports, the sparring doctors have been identified as Dr. Ashok Neniwal, a gynaecologist and Dr. ML Tak, an anaesthesiologist. The reason behind the verbal spat, which was loaded with Hindi expletives, has not yet been identified.
