Niloufer Hospital has come to the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, yet again on Monday. Notorious for the spate of baby-kidnaps, the hospital staff’s infamous neglect of duty touched a new-low when a nurse reportedly administered injections to about 30 children with five syringes.

  • Five syringes reportedly used for 30 children
  • Doctors insist it was a safe practice

The children, who were being treated in the third floor of the emergency ward, were given Monocef late Sunday night. On Monday, all when all hell broke loose when some of the children suffered infections and their hands were swollen. Irate parents staged demonstrations in front of the hospital and complained to the hospital Superintendent.

“When we wanted to know why the same syringe was used for all children, I was rebuked,” fumed a parent. Child rights groups cried foul and demanded the sacking of the nurse who administered the injections. However, a spokesperson of the hospital informed that a doctors’ committee that was constituted had declared it as a safe practice.

“Monocef comes in 1 gram bottle and children are usually administered 200 mg. So it’s basically 1 bottle of liquid for five children not one syringe for five. The complaints came because of the ignorance on the part of the parents. The injection practice is safe,” said a doctor with Niloufer. Although, the affected children were stated to be out of danger, the parents were baffled at the preposterous defence by the hospital authorities.
