Rajkumar, a JCB operator from Puttur Koltige who is a  resident of Baikampady Meenakaliya  was admitted to the hospital on the night of June 28 after he complained of burning sensation in the chest and had later  vomited blood.  He says though he received  proper treatment until June 30, later the treatment was not satisfactory. Despite doctors   asking the nurses to  provide him eight bottles of glucose per day, the nurses failed to  give hum glucose drips as per the doctor’s  advice ad when questioned  had abused him and sent him out of the hospital, alleges Rajkumar.

 Hospital authorities deny charges:  District Surgeon Dr Rajeshwari has denied  Rajkumar’s  charges and alleges that  the man’s mother, wife and two kids too were staying in the hospital despite telling him that the patient  is allowed to have only one attendant  as per rules. Kids playing around in the hospital wards would invite danger  as there is a chance of them contracting some infectious disease, Dr Rajeshwari said. However, the man who failed to heed created a scene and was now hurling allegations, she further added.
