Hyderabad: On Tuesday afternoon, 22-year-old Rajitha from Malkajgiri, who had delivered a baby at Sultan Bazaar Maternity Hospital on Monday, died after she was rushed to the better equipped Osmania General Hospital in a bid to save her life. This brings the number of maternal deaths in the three maternity hospitals in the state to 12 in 2017.
A relative of Rajitha, Satyanarayan, said she underwent a C-section on Monday afternoon and in the evening she was not able to breathe properly and was rushed to Osmania General Hospital.
“She was undergoing treatment in the respiratory Intensive Care Unit but there was no improvement in her condition and she died.” Doctors at OGH say the young woman was brought in a very critical condition, with extremely high blood loss. Blood transfusions didn’t lead to any improvement in her condition. Angry relatives who staged a protest outside the hospital claimed that the hospital did not have medicines or blood and they were told to buy these from outside.
