New Delhi, May 26: All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has been considered as one of the best medical institutions of the country and the world as well. People across India and many other countries of the world come to the national capital to get the best treatment.
Pavan Kumar, who hails from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, too had come to the hospital with similar hopes and expectations. However, his experience was something different from others.
Mr Kumar's 6-year-old daughter was diagnosed with some problem in her left kidney. She was operated on Mar 14 at AIIMS. After the surgery, the child complained of severe pain.
Doctors at AIIMS asked him to take his daughter for a scan. Mr Kumar informed that the scan report shocked him as it said no kidney was visible.
He was quoted as saying, "I then asked the doctor who, however, did not answer my queries properly. I tried speaking to the AIIMS administration failing which I approached the Hauz Khas police."
According to a test report at AIIMS dated December 8, months before the surgery, the child's right kidney was in good condition.
The hospital has constituted a high-powered committee of senior professors to investigate the father's allegations.
"The allegations made by the patient's father are of serious nature. A High-Powered Committee of senior professors has been constituted to probe the matter and clear the issues," a senior doctor said.
The Committee held a meeting on May 20 and will again meet this week before submitting its report, said the doctor.
