Shamna death Medical board to meet today

23 November, 2016

KOCHI: The state-level medical board will be meeting in Kochi on Wednesday to look into the complaints of medical negligence, which allegedly led to the death of Shamna Thasneem, a second year MBBS student of Government Medical College, Ernakulam. The district-level medical board, which conducted a probe into the incident, failed to prepare a unanimous report. So, the police sent a request to the state demanding constitution of a state-level board.



Though the report by the medical board, constituted by DMO, submitted its report stating that there wasn't any medical negligence, one member in the board had written her dissent note on it. Shamna sought treatment for fever at the casualty of the medical college on July 18. Then, an injection was administered on her.


Following the injection, she collapsed. She was shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and then shifted to a private hospital where she breathed her last.
