Photo Of Man's Severed Leg Used As Pillow Goes Viral, Doctors Suspended

"Strict action will be taken if our staff is found to be at fault", Ms. Kaushik said, adding that it appeared to be a case of mischief.

The NHRC has sent notices to the Uttar Pradesh government and the union health ministry over an incident in which a man's leg severed in a bus accident was allegedly used as a headrest to prop him up in a state-run hospital in Jhansi.

The hospital administration had vowed strict action against the culprits. Two doctors were also suspended by the administration.

The 28-year-old man, known only as Ghanshyam, was working as a helper on a school bus when it overturned while trying to avoid colliding with a tractor.

Chief Medical Superintendent, Harish Chandra Arya, said: "It is not yet clear who made a decision to use the amputated leg to rest Ghanshyam's head". The relatives of the patient, who goes by the name Ghanshyam, said, "When we reached the hospital, we saw his leg being used as a headrest".


The NHRC has observed that the contents of the reports, if true, amount to an "unethical and negligent act done by the doctors and nurses, which is not only in violation of the medical norms, but also amounts to violation of the right to dignity of the patient, who was already undergoing trauma, due to the amputation of his leg". "Brother-in-law, Janaki Prasad said, 'I repeatedly asked the doctors to intervene but they refused". Although UP is home to over 200 million people, it also ranks amongst the country's poorest states with lack of even basic medical facilities.

"The doctor looked for something to raise his head. The patient's attendant used the leg".

Medical negligence is not uncommon in government run hospitals as these do not have proper equipment or face staffing and hygiene issues.

Last year, dozens of children died in a single week at a government hospital in Uttar Pradesh that suffered oxygen shortages.
