President Bidhya Devi Bhandari has tweeted that the incident that occurred at Bheri Hospital last night was a very sad event. She has appealed to all concerned to be patient at a time when the country is going through such a crisis due to the coronavirus.

The president, in her tweet, has said that the attack on doctors and nurses who had been putting not only theirs but also their families lives at risk in the fight against the coronavirus was a very deplorable act. She also mentioned that during sad times people tend to react emotionally but now is the time to be patient and stand united to overcome the crisis brought about by the COVID-19.

Relatives of a patient, who died at 8 pm last night while receiving treatment at Bheri Hospital, had assaulted0 health workers and doctors in the hospital. The patient from Dang district was admitted to the hospital on May 18 and died last night while receiving treatment on ventilator support.

Chairman of Bheri Hospital Development Committee, Pramod Dhital, said relatives of the deceased thrashed a doctor and four nursing staff stating that the patient died due to the carelessness of the health workers.

The deceased’s son and two brothers had misbehaved with Dr Chandra Prakash Sahu and nursing staff Asmini Gurung and Sadiksha Gaire.

Dhital said the patient died despite continued efforts of the doctors to save the patient.

After the death of the patient, the relatives had also vandalised the ICU ward of the hospital. Meanwhile, health workers of the hospital have asked the administration to ensure their security and take stern action against the perpetrators.
