at some point, riot police were called. The typical weapon of police is the lathi, a four-foot stick.

This was first reported in OnlineKhabar, Nepali language. Rebublika published it after a day.

GULMI, Dec 21:  A patient admitted to Resunga Hospital of Gulmi has apparently died due to the negligence of doctors.

Shiva Lal Aryal, 53, a local of Malika Rural Municipality-6, Arje had gone to the hospital complaining of dental problem. As informed by the family members, Aryal who was taken to the hospital for normal toothache was insisted to conduct a surgery by the doctors.

Carelessness of the doctors ultimately led to his death, according to the family sources.
“Doctors had told us that a surgery needs to be conducted to take out the pus in his gums but unfortunately he didn’t wake up after the surgery,” said Hari KC, a relative of the deceased.

According to family members, the doctors were supposed to give antibiotics 24 hours before the surgery. However, they didn’t. Twenty-one-year-old son of Aryal is lying unconscious in hospital after the death of his father. Family members and relatives are refusing to claim the body accusing the doctors of the death. “We will claim the dead body only if the hospital administration along with the doctors holds a meeting with us,” said Shovakhar Giri, chairperson of Malika-6.

Tensions ran high in the hospital on Wednesday after Aryal’s death. Security personnel has been deployed at the hospital to avoid any kind of untoward incident. http://www.myrepublica.com/news/32917/

About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

These blogs, and my books, and videos are written on the principle that any person embarking on something similar to what I do will gain more preparation than I first had, by reading them. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background. Add to it fifteen more devoted to adult critical care. In Nepal, I started teaching critical care skills in 2011. I figure out what they need to know in a Nepali practice setting. Then I teach it in a culturally appropriate way so that the boots-on-the-ground people will use it. One theme of my work has been collective culture and how it manifests itself in anger. Because this was a problem I incorporated elements of "situational awareness" training from the beginning, in 2011.
