My sister-in-law was admitted there around 10 days ago and she was diagnosed with Dengue and she is pregnant. Her platelets were reducing (ideal - 1.5 Lacs) and after a week it came down to 38k. Dr Santosh came to check the report, laughed and warned the patient that she should not feel happy or celebrate as her platelets are still low and 100% it will go down further & to be prepared for further pain. What kind of a doctor would say this directly to a patient specially in this condition and when she is pregnant?? Didn't expect this kind of behaviour from a matured MD of a hospital. We immediately discharged her and she returned home. Next day her platelets increased to 57k, yesterday it went to 98k and by gods grace its 1.98lacs now so she is out of danger.
