Ahmedabad: Taking a leaf out of superhit Bollywood movie “Munnabhai MBBS”, the medical and non-medical staff of a hospital here played ‘garba’ in full swing inside the intensive care unit, sparking all round outrage, officials said on Tuesday.
The ‘garba’ was performed on Monday afternoon at the Sola Civil Hospital where Health and Finance Minister Nitin Patel inaugurated a new kidney dialysis centre.

After he left, the hospital staff erupted into a spontaneous ‘garba’ to the accompaniment of loud music, celebrating the spirit of the ongoing navratri festival – albeit at the wrong venue at the wrong time.

As the young male and female doctors, many in their white overcoats, uniformed nurses, wardboys and wardgirls joined the dance and went around taking ’rounds’ of the ICU, the shocked patients and their relatives kept watching dumbfounded.

Worse, many of the dancers were wearing shoes and slippers, which is barred as per ICU norms, creating a potential health hazard for the already suffering patients.

Strangely, the hospital administration seemed unaware of the loud dance and music on the premises but belatedly, medical superintendent H.K. Bhavsar ordered his flock to stop.

Taking a grim view of the incident, Bhavsar said he would serve showcause notices to all those who participated in the song-and-dance in the ICU.

Some reports on Tuesday suggested that the state government has sought a report on the incident which has led to outrage when a video clip of the garba was leaked on social media networks and local television channels.

The reactions ranged from bland humour to utter shock to sheer disbelief with some commenting how hospital staffers behave rudely and don’t even permit mobile phones inside ICUs but did not shy away from breaking all rules themselves.

The incident was reminiscent of a lusty cabaret number, “Dekh Le..” enacted in a hospital male ward in the 2003 blockbuster ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ for a terminal patient, actor Jimmy Shergill, at the behest of his sympathisers Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi.

In a new development that could spell fresh trouble for the Shalimar Bagh-located Max Hospital, the Delhi Medical Council (DMC) has issued a notice to the hospital seeking details of its qualification and details of the Delhi Nursing Council registration.

The notice was issued on December 20 — the day the hospital resumed its services, soon after its registration was cancelled by the Delhi government and was barred from admitting new patients.

The Delhi government’s action had come after a 22-week-old premature baby was declared dead at the hospital, even though he was alive, and handed over to his parents in a plastic bag, along with his still-born twin.

“Based on the medical reports that a newborn baby was declared dead along with his still-born twin and handed over to his parents at Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh. In this regard, the DMC has taken suo motu notice of the media reports, alleging medical negligence on the part of doctors of the hospital, and (the case) is being examined by DMC,” reads the notice.

The Council has also directed the hospital to submit a statement of defence, together with any other documents in support of their defence, within 15 days.

“You are directed to submit a copy of your qualification and Delhi Nursing Council registration details,” the notice said.

Girish Tyagi, the DMC Secretary, said the notice issued “is of concern to all the doctors in the hospital related to the case”, and the Council had sought their individual replies.

“We want to check the role of every doctor involved in the case, including the gynaecologist when the baby was delivered. We want to know what exactly happened,” Tyagi told IANS. IANS
