Poor woman forced to give birth in mosque’s washroom after Jinnah Hospital denies her treatment
Her husband Hammad, who is a driver by profession, took her to the hospital at around 2am on Thursday.
In a distressing incident, a woman was left with no choice than to administer her own delivery in the washroom of a mosque as Jinnah Hospital denied her treatment. Despite her critical condition, the doctors refused to see her because she did not get her tests done from a ‘specific private laboratory’.
According to the available details, Asifa Hammad was brought to the Jinnah Hospital twice but the gynaecologists refused to see her. The doctors had directed her to get blood tests done from a specific lab located in front of Jinnah Hospital.
Her husband Hammad, who is a driver by profession, took her to the hospital at around 2am on Thursday this week when her health deteriorated. When doctors refused help, Hammad took his wife to the bathroom of a mosque located inside the hospital premises, where she gave birth.
The hospital administration has formed a committee to look into the matter. AMS Jinnah Hospital Dr. Yahya Sultan said that those found responsible would be punished according to the law.
