Umaid Hospital

Jodhpur (Rajasthan):
The video of two doctors fighting while performing emergency surgery in Jodhpur's Umaid Hospital has now gone viral on the internet. The video captured by a staff member showed the two doctors shouting at each other.

The video accessed through hospital sources, showed assistant professor of obstetrics and gynaecology Dr Ashok Naniwal – who is seen operating on a patient – arguing with professor of anaesthesia Dr Mathura Lal Tak using filthy language.

According to report, the heated argument erupted between Doctors Ashok Nainwal and ML Tak - during an emergency caesarean surgery scheduled because of the feeble heartbeat of the foetus.

The spat between the two appears to have started when Dr. Nainwal, the obstetrician, questioned whether the patient had eaten before the operation. The anaesthetist, Dr. Tak, reportedly tried to have a junior doctor carry out tests, which Dr. Nainwal did not agree with.

'You stay within your aukat (limits)," Dr Nainwal, in green scrubs and surgery attire, is seen screaming at the anaesthetist.

Also, the superintendent of the hospital, Ranjana Desai, said the woman was brought in a critical condition and was immediately shifted to the operation theatre for a C-section. She lost her baby soon afterward.

'We are yet to ascertain if the newborn's death was because of the spat. The cause of death is severe birth asphyxia,' she said.

The two doctors who were removed did not take calls.
