Stillbirth at Golaghat hospital compound

At the time when the state health department has been making tall claim regarding revolutionary progress in the health sector, ironically an expected mother had to give birth to a Stillbirth child after being unattended by hospital staff and that too in a hospital that has won the best hospital award. According to sources, on Sunday one Punyaswari Gogoi of Fologoni area along with her husband had arrived in Kushal Konwar Civil Hospital, Golaghat. When her labour pain started, she lay in the hospital compound traumatized with pain and sometimes later gave birth to a stillbirth child. During all these time not a single doctor or nurse came to attend her. Such indifferent and irresponsible behavior on part of the hospital authority has raised great agitation all over Golaghat. It is worth mentioning that Kushal Konwar Civil Hospital often grabs the headline for doctor patient conflict which also raises question about its administrative efficiency.
