Meet Kafeel Ahmed, the heroic doctor who borrowed oxygen cylinders to save Gorakhpur's children
224 comment
There is no good in collecting oxygen cylinders for medical collage from peripheral city hospitals.Rather things are reverse and medical collages should have a backup to supply any medical help to peripheral govt/non-government hospitals. The matter is very serious to be investigated separately for this superfluous action.Being a retired medical administrator I find fishy in this act.A doctor who is in purchase committee is responsible who instead giving expertise to patients is collecting oxygen cylinders in civil areas.It is mockery of administration.What have I gathered from media this doctor has his own nursing home in GKP,is in purchase committee of hospital and is a culprit of raping a nurse of the same hospital and was jailed also. Now the govt. is also not effective as an administrator.Health minister gives unwarranted explanations, probably supplied by his secretary who themselves work with poor technical knowledge.I advise Yogi ji to put efforts to ind out honest retired technical persons from every departments and take help from them.Continuing with persons of SP govt./tainted images would damage the expectations of mandate given to BJP.This doctor had connection with previous govt

GORAKHPUR, UTTAR PRADESH:  Doctors at Delhi's AIIMS have alleged that a paediatrician Dr Kafeel Khan has been made the "scapegoat" at a hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur, where more than 60 children died last week. Dr Khan, who was head of paediatrics and the children's encephalitis wards at the hospital, was removed on Sunday.

"Doctors are being made scapegoats," said  Dr. Harjit Singh Bhatti, who heads an association of resident doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences or AIIMS. The association has written a letter condemning Dr Kafeel Khan's sacking, accusing the state government of "gross neglect of public health." By blaming doctors for the death of the children, the association said, "politicians are hiding their incompetency," and asked, "Who is responsible if oxygen, gloves, equipment not available?"...

The head of the hospital Dr Rajeev Mishra was suspended on Saturday, while Dr Kafeel Khan, on whose watch oxygen supply dipped to a critical low at the hospital on Thursday, was removed yesterday.  Government sources said he was sacked for failing to take action on a letter that was written on Thursday morning by those in charge of the hospital's oxygen supply, warning that that there was only enough to last till the evening and asking for emergency supplies.


"We are not saying that the doctor can't be responsible, but he's not the only one responsible. We want a proper enquiry, government officials are also involved and even they should be held accountable. Not just a single doctor," said Dr Bhatti of AIIMS, who emphasised that hospitals lack infrastructure and basic facilities.

GORAKHPUR: It is in the scheme of things that the Yogi Adityanath government has seized upon a Muslim doctor (note, in this case it is not a case of ‘who happens to be Muslim’) Dr Kafeel Khan to make the scapegoat it so desperately needs to shift the focus from its inefficiency and apathy to divisive politics yet again. The effort, after a web of lies has failed to convince the families of the 63 children killed in a hospital because of a lack of oxygen, is to shift the blame on the young doctor and make him the face of a ‘what do you expect from a Dr Khan’ campaign that has already started hitting the social media.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his Health Minister SN Singh first went into denial mode, and when it became clear that they could not completely bury the incident, have come out with a series of falsehoods that doctors and the media and even the patients are questioning in Gorakhpur. The families who have lost their children have been harassed sufficiently, told to keep quiet, to take their dead babies out from the back door, and not go to the media with any information. A charge against Dr Khan is that he went to the media---when actually the media went to him---and went on record to speak of the shortage of oxygen to the Baba Raghav Das Medical College, where he had to go and get cylinders, and gave his debit card for the purchase of the same.

This, incidentally is not what he advertised. This was already being advertised by grateful patients, many of whom referred to him as an ‘angel’, and by staff members who witnessed this commitment. Khan who is not available for comment at the moment, is a paediatrician and reportedly worked around the clock to save the lives of the young patients under his care. A senior doctor said that the casualties would have been more had he not been able to arrange for the extra cylinders.

The falsehoods in just two days of the tragedy being spread now by the usual army of trolls and right wing activists goes like this...
