Thirty-year-old Sushma Thapa Magar of Kusmisera, Jaimini Municipality-1, had gone the hospital for delivery. But the health workers attending on Sushma forgot to remove a sanitary pad they used to stop the bleeding during the procedure after they were done with it.
The sanitary pad was removed from Sushma’s uterus on Sunday, 12 days after delivery. It was a normal delivery.
Sushma visited the hospital when her pain did not subside even after 12 days of the normal delivery. But to her and the hospital’s astonishment, it was found that a sanitary pad was lodged in her womb.
Magar said instead of acknowledging their mistake, the health workers misbehaved with her when she went to them with the complaint. She said she had to live with intense pain in her stomach for 12 days due to the sheer negligence of the health workers.
