SULTANPUR: In another case of medical apathy, severed foot of a man was kept between his legs at a hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Sultanpur.
Atul Pandey, 48, lost a foot when a train ran over him. The locals rushed Pandey to a Sultanpur district hospital but during the course of treatment, he was left unattended for nearly two hours.
It was only removed by the doctors when people started clicking pictures of it.
Considering Pandey’s deteriorating condition, doctors later referred him to Lucknow.
Reports says later doctors said “there is no chance that the leg could be joined now” because of its prolonged exposure and delay in starting treatment.
However, Chief Medical Superintendent of the hospital Yogendra Yati denied any medical negligence and said Pandey was given the best treatment.
