SRINAGAR: A Dutch national admitted in the government-run super-specialty hospital for bones and joints for her fracture injury has been suggested by the hospital administration to be shift outside the state as they cannot treat her ailment. B&J Hospital is part of the associated hospitals of the Government Medical College, the main medical school in Kashmir.
As per documents, available with Kashmir Life, a foreigner identified as Sahine Rohrmann, Deutsch Nationality (passport no C8Y688ZYJ) is suffering from a fracture in her leg (femur).
Rohrmann was admitted on August 2, 2018, at Bone & Joint Hospital. “The hospital is not able to manage her condition, therefore, she urgently needs to be airlifted on August 3, 2018, from Srinagar to Delhi for the treatment,” reads a document from the hospital administration to a private agency.
The authorities have written that it is extremely urgent and important for this patient to be airlifted to Delhi.
Pertinently this is the only super-specialty hospital for bones treating such problems.
When contacted Dr Abdul Rasheed, the Medical Superintendent of the hospital, refused to give any details about the case. “Come here on Saturday to my office, I will tell you the details,” he said.
Incidentally, the same hospital has been treated complex cases of fractures including those involving trauma.
