I visited this doctor for treatment of my sister in law.she got her kidney transplanted 20 years ago and now they in Mumbai and in touch with the doc for her regular check ups. Unluckily, she got ill last month and very serious that she has to admit in ICU. This doctor qas very rude in behaviour and started saying bad things about her in front of her, her kid and husband.we even requested him to talk separately and do not let her and family panic in this moment.he was so adamant that he warned to stop the treatment. **** ** *** *** *** ******* ***** ***** *********
Dr. Amit Langote replied
Dear Patient husband and relative ( I know your name but won't put it out)
Your wife was admitted with serious Lung infection, needing BipAp ( one step prior to ventilator therapy) in ICU. She had H1N1 virus infection. She had drop in her urine output with low bp. Her creatinine had risen and she had Acute Kidney injury. Her Transplant kidney was failing and her blood pressure was low. She needed medicines to be given to get her blood pressure up urgently and to save her life and her kidney. Patients daughter ( who's was to appear for her final MBBS exam and understood the patients critical condition) and patient herself were pleading with me to do all necessary treatment, but you refused to allow her to get a central line and the medicines required to save her life. You wanted her to be shifted to the ward in such critical condition and treated her there. I had to involve the hospital management as your intereference in medical treatment was costing your wife her health and life. You, for some obvious reasons, chose to refuse consent to treatment
Despite all your refusals and interference in The treatment, we managed to save the patient and her kidney with great help from our ICU team. She went home alive.
Don't forgot that all your refusals have been documented in your patients file by myself and ICU doctors and the hospital administration as you refused to give consent to much needed urgent treatment. Their is enough evidence to show everyone what actually happened.
And despite all your negative opinions, what mattered most was when your wife thanked me by shaking my hand at the time of discharge. For only she knows how close she was to her death.
I wish her good health. And you some good sense.
