Two back-to-back deaths led to tension at the Capital Hospital here on Thursday night. A 38-year-old woman, Pramila Singh, who was admitted to the hospital during the evening hours died within minutes of being administered injections. This led to angry reactions from the family members.
Singh, who had asthma problems, was brought to the hospital by the family members after she complained of uneasiness.
She had cardiac issues in the past and the family members were trying to seek appropriate consultation from the on-duty doctors.
However, even before going through the complete history of her illness, she was allegedly administered an injection and within minutes she died, family members alleged.
This led to tension in the hospital as angry family members confronted the doctors and sought an explanation.
Capital Police rushed to the hospital while the doctors virtually stopped attending the incoming patients at the emergency ward.
It was during this time that an unidentified old person died while a student was referred to SCB Medical College, Cuttack, without being given any medical attention.
