LARKANA—Neg­li­gent doc­tors left sur­gi­cal scis­sors in­side stom­ach of an el­derly woman dur­ing kid­ney treat­ment in a pri­vate hospi­tal here on Sun­day.

Ac­cord­ing to de­tails, 70year old Arbab Kha­toon of Shah­dad­kot vil­lage of district Larkana had ap­proached a lo­cal pri­vate for kid­ney stone treat­ment where she was op­er­a­tion by the doc­tors.

The doc­tors demon­strated worst of their re­spon­si­bil­ity, when they left a sur­gi­cal scis­sor in­side her stom­ach and sewed it up. The woman de­vel­oped se­vere pain in the stom­ach and vis­ited the hospi­tal again. Doc­tors had her X-ray con­ducted and it was then re­vealed that a scis­sor had been left in­side her stom­ach.

More to her mis­eries, the hospi­tal ad­min­is­tra­tion is de­mand­ing Rs 50,000 to re­move scis­sor from ab­domen, which the woman says is much beyond her af­ford­abil­ity.—Agen­cies
