Kolkata: In case of death of a pregnant woman to refer, the referring doctor should take responsibility. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee gave such a strong message from the administrative meeting in Nabanna on Monday. On this day, the Chief Minister expressed strong anger over the fact that block health centers or district hospital doctors are referring patients despite repeated prohibitions. In particular, when pregnant women are referred, many of them die due to being hit by a car for 4-5 hours, he expressed anger.

However, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has already sent a message to every hospital from doctors repeatedly about not referring patients without special difficulties. But, ignoring the message of the Chief Minister, the case of patient referral is still going on. This time the Chief Minister took strict action in this regard. In the Navanna administrative meeting today, the Chief Minister expressed his anger towards the doctors of the district regarding patient referral and said, “Will you stop referring? Pregnant women are also referred. Then they pushed the car for 4-5 hours and came to another place to be admitted to the hospital and died before the operation. Why is this happening? Now if 99 percent institutional delivery then why refer? If that is the case, then the person who referred should take responsibility for the person who died.” However, not all block health centers have the infrastructure to perform surgery on pregnant women. Many health center doctors are also not skilled in this matter. In this regard, the chief minister advised, “If there is any problem, contact the superintendent of the district hospital. If necessary, take help of district hospital doctor or gynecologist through video call.” However, the Chief Minister has made it clear that referring a pregnant woman will not be accepted in any way. Besides, Mamata also gave a strong message that negligence in the medical field will not be tolerated in any way. In his words, “People’s money should be paid to the people. Negligence is a crime. We must rectify this immediately.” For this, the Chief Minister has also advised health officials to make surprise visits to various hospitals.

Mamata Banerjee launched the Swasthyasathi scheme before the last assembly elections to provide medical services to all the people of the state. Stating that many people have already benefited from this scheme, the Chief Minister said, “8 crore 43 lakh people have been enrolled in the health care scheme. This service is available in about 2500 hospitals. So far 43 lakh people have been provided services worth 5000 crore rupees. A separate health partner portal has also been opened.”
