    Default Death of my daughter - Medical Negligence by doctors

    My daughter, Shree (student of DPS Newtown, Kolkata), had to leave me on the night of 12th of September after accompanying me and giving me strength to appear in two big conferences to speak for the need of music therapy for children with clinical needs in National Trust, Delhi and “The VIII'th National Conference of IAP Childhood Disability Group” in Chandigarh on behalf of Child Development Center(CDC) - Apollo Gleneagles Hospital. My husband, Suman Mukherjee, is an IT engineer works in corporate sector.

    Tragically, my innocent daughter, who was proud of her mother’s workplace, didn't know she'll be the victim of medical negligence/doctor’s incapability at the same place.

    Our daughter was suffering from repeated cough and cold infection (Not being tested), vomiting, ear ache, sore throat, lethargy. She was under supervision of Dr. Anjan Bhattacharya from Paediatric Department at Apollo Gleneagles hospital, Kolkata since February 2010. She had been on Atopy treatment without doing a single medical investigation.
    We had consulted Dr. Amitava Pahari (Paediatric Department) on March 25, 2011, Dr. Dev Roy (E.N.T Specialist) on July 07,2010 and Nov 09,2010 from Apollo Gleneagles Hospital.

    We had consulted Dr. Apurba Kumar Ghosh on 9’th August,2011 in his chamber at S.K.Pharma at Santoshpur. Dr. Apurba Ghosh was the last doctor who had checked our daughter just a month earlier (August 9, 2011) of her death and he also didn’t bother to ask for a blood test.

    We had taken our daughter to Apollo Emergency on 11’th Sept. for high fever, extreme paleness, swollen lips and eyes and she had been declared with complete clear chest and prescribed with Azithral, Crocin DS, Atarax, Zofer and Lanzol by Dr. Payal around 3pm without any investigation. We have requested for blood test as our daughter was looking very pale. However Dr. Payal has informed us that she can’t prescribe blood test and she was unable to contact Dr. Anjan Bhattacharya during that time. She declared above mentioned medicines can be given at home with frequent use of ORS water.

    We admitted her in Apollo Emergency on Sept. 12, 2011 as her high fever continued with chest pain and swelling of eyes and lips. She died on the same day. On that day, after 18 months of medical care, it was found that she was suffering from leukemia; that was her first blood test in past 18 months or so. Her hemoglobin was 4.4. Every alternate month we used to take her for checkup and the doctor asked us to continue Atopy Treatment. We still don't know what is our fault and why none of the doctors had asked to do any blood tests. As non-medical people, what else could we have done?
    If my daughter was diagnosed earlier, she could have received curative treatment and she could have survived by now.


    Please find the chronological visit and treatment on our daughter. We have attached all copies of prescriptions on support to the following details.

    My heart goes for Shree. May her soul rest in peace. I am also a father of two children one of whom is under the treatment of Dr Anjan Bhattacharyya, though her problem is different from Shree. We have gone for several years. I am afraid to enter into the details of my child because Dr Anjan Bhattacharyya is a very complicated and abusive personality. But still we are giving some of our observations over the years under Dr Anjan Bhattacharyya.

    Firstly this is to inform you/everybody that Dr Anjan Bhattacharyya of Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata ,as a renowned child specialist, needs to develop his own behavior with the patient parties. The following are some of our observations

    We went to Apollo several years ago with our child (we are afraid to disclose the name and registration no of our child) mainly with speech/behavioral problems.Here are some of the major points.

    1.Many times he did not iterate to convey the therapies to be done at proper time.. This is a very big issue.
    2. Many times he used to pass sarcastic remarks to the us.
    3.He is very keen to demonstrate mistakes of the parents (of course he will do it) , but don’t care about his own mistakes.
    4.Many times he carry on conversations which are completely irrelevant to us(at least at that point of time when we are anxious about our child and seeking help)
    5. He often misjudge the intelligence level of the parents and conclude wrong decisions and pass disrespectful remarks on their credentials which is completely unnecessary
    6.He is dealing with mental and physical health of so many children but firstly he should check his own mental health because he is an extremely egotist and complicated personality which can do big harm to oureverybody's child (the future of our motherland INDIA)

    There are many other points…..but it will be a story.

    According to our observation Dr Anjan Bhattacharyya should behave properly with us and to give us a minimum respect.

    He should bear in mind that he is a doctor, not a predator, and the patient parties (which includes the child) are not prey.
