The delimma of real world

Many weeks and many incidents later. I finally found something compelling enough to write amidst a damn hectic life (do not doubt my processor scheduling capability, its more of a memory overflow).

By the grace of Almighty, me and my wife were blessed with a daughter last week. Provided that our first and beloved son, Amaan,  had lost the 6 months long battle against his life last year, the birth of another baby was an emotional situation too overwhelming to tackle initially. Especially when it was a high risk pregnancy for my wife this time; a pregnancy where the mother and the child were threatened with life from Day 1.

What had gone wrong with my son or what we have been through the last two years is only enough to be covered in books; a few hundred lines on a web page just won’t be able to handle it. There is too much to tell, reciprocate or cherish. Indeed, there are no regrets. To keep it short & simple, my son had been administered over 1400 injections (all 3rd generation anti-biotics) over the span of six months, besides innumerous blood tests / cultures and other investigations. On the day he died, a canola was made on his head since no other space was left un-drilled on his body; and yet the last thing I remember of him, before he bid us farewell, was his un-failing smile. What a heroic courage my son possessed….

Not getting drifted away and coming back to my wife’s recent c-section, it was another nightmare. In my entire life, I had never seen such unprofessional, irresponisble and unfriendly attitude of a hospital staff. With the exception of labour room staff and my wife’s doc Dr. Luman Shiekh (a person of great calibre, heart and profession; a beautiful person to know; indeed a gift of God to all those high-risk pregnant women out there- while not forgetting her companion Dr. Asma). Where the doctor cared and pampered us both emotionally and mentally, the disrespectful treatment of the B2 ward staff actually tortured our minds & hearts. There was no sense of hygine, ruthless treatment of child and absolutely non-cooperative, aggressive staff (this excludes a few, very few exceptions).

My wife was left in severe pains, after the c-section, without proper dosage of pain killers untill the concerned physician came on round and took strict notice of it. When discharged, the doctor on duty was negligent enough not to undo the wound’s dressing, left to rot and create infections. My wife was fortunte to notice it on third day herself and notified the concerned persons who said, “Well, it’s not that big a negligence!!”. Even the removal of the dressing was done in a hurry and with highly un-professional attitude. However, a doctor on duty in labour room dept. took my number and said that some relevant person will call you and apologize for the mal-treatment that could have possibly turned into serious disorders. Let’s wait and see…

This was highly ironical given that the docs at AKUH were taking special interest in my daughter due to her sibling’s medical history. Probably that’s how they get the case studies.

My elaboration of the agonies I faced in Aga Khan University Hospital will continue. This is not to bring any bad name to the prestigious institution, but to bring to notice to the authorities what is going wrong right under their noses. I know quite a few of the influential oldies / starters of AKUh who are gems of persons and an institution in theemselves, but the tradition is dying out. In my recent most encounter, I honestly felt as if I were at some funds-deprived, neglected government hospital haunted by ghost doctors.

I wonder if they are accountable to anybody or anyone will stand up and speak…

  3. Congrats on the baby girl dude.

    AKUH is getting notorious in these terms especially when it come to caring for patients and hygiene.

    On the contrary, the low budget hospitals / clinics are very particular in hygiene issues.

    This news is not new for me. I have faced similar issues. Let’s hope if this blog comes under the eyes of Admin People of AKUH.

    • I dearly hope that it somehow reaches the eyes/ears of AKUH management so that they do something about ths staff attitude and cleanliness issue…

  4. Love You Faizee Mamoo *

    And Achu, and my baby sis emaan 🙂

    Love The Name. God Bless You All 🙂

    taKe caRe!

    • Dear Mansoori

      Thank you for visiting my blog and spending your valuable time to post your comments. However, this post is neither meant to damage anyone’s reputation or at least abuse any institution. The idea is to make those up the heriarchy realize that please do something about the wrong being done right under their nose. Whatever and whoever gets criticized here, the idea is to bring about a positive change with the power of writing, peacefully of course; and not condemn someone or something just for the sake of condemning it; unless the situation has been very old or it has gone overboard.

      Secondly, since this post is moderated, your comments may or may not get posted, or deleted after being posted if deemed necessary.

      Thank you once again for sharing valuable information.

      • Dear Faizuddin:

        I understand your point of view but If you have carfully read my post , you would have had realized that the situation has realy gone too far…reputation for the sake of what? mere reputaion? minting money at the cost of human lives?! Come on, we are talking about humans!

        My purpose of putting these info is for the sake of human lives, I know several people who have lost their life just because the way they are running the system ..its happening on daily basis!

        “Burai ko hanth say rokna chahiya, ya nahi to kam say kam zuban say or ager ham ya bhi nahi karsakty to kam say kam dil main bura janain…”

        “Jis nay aik insan ki zindagi bachai, goya sari insaniat ko bacha lia”..the purpose of the information is to let people know..hope you understand, if you want to delete it, delete it, its upto you! We as a nation have reached such a state that we just live with what we have been impossed upon, we are so coward that we cannot even say wrong to WRONG.!

        Best Regards

  5. Well, you are not the only one!! There are dozens of serious malpractices being carried out over there ( so called “PRESIGIOUS hospital”) on daily basis!! 100s of people have lost their lives and people will continue losing their lives or ending up with a horrible medical condition at that “Slaughter House”. Ever gave a thought why its happening?

    Well, it because of the incompetent, money driven, unethical and criminal doctors and Hospital Administration. Doctors at AKUH are incentive driven, i.e. they get commission on tests or procedures they order or perform on patients! Well, as long as the patient can afford the cost of test, it may be O.K (to some extent..) but what happens when procedures are performed on patients that are not required by his/her medical condition and “WHEN THE PATIENT CANNOT SUSTAIN THAT PROCEDURES”?…..ANSWER: They die or end up with a horrific medical situation! And on the other hand doctors and hospital make good money ……who cares…everyone has to die, right!

    Company sponsored patients are like the “GOLD MINES”, as company will pay all the bills, so why not order as much tests as possible and as much procedures as possible, who gives a damn whether the patient requires those procedures or not or whether he/she can sustain it or not!! No body can do anything about it, its PK, no laws no liabilities, no accountabilities…so lets make money, right!

    There are dozens of malpractice cases pending in the courts against AKUH and nothing happens to “Slaughter House”…. keep this in mind that filing a law suit in PK on merit is almost impossible, hundreds of lawyers (more than 80% of the entire lawyer community is composed of TOP Cheaters!) are available in the market waiting to spoil / delay your case not by taking money from you but also gaining huge amount from AKHU by informing them, delaying and spoiling the case!! Secondly, the cases pending in the courts. are hyphenating for ever…..as they are the influential people, lawyers and judges are cheaters , wake up its PK. Got that!

    Does anyone has slightest idea why Dr. A.Q. Khan was taken to AKUH from CMH Pindi , a few years back? Why such serious security and medical risks were taken by moving Dr. A. Q . Khan from the Cantonment City, Pindi and from a huge Medical Complex (Combined Medical Hospital of Armed Forces) with top of the line equipment and facilities to that “Slaughter House”?

    Answers: It was nothing else but a marketing stunt and their influence !! With 80% illiteracy and 20 % educated “Juhalas” its was a great marketing idea!! Now, majority of people will think that its the “Ultimate Hospital” to take their patients as Dr. A.Q. Khan was brought there!! Has anyone ever bothered to think what “Special Treatment” they had which CMH didn’t??
