The incident was caught on camera, which raises further questions because cameras are not allowed to be taken in the OT.
The video purportedly showed the two doctors shouting at each other, warning them to keep their language in check and sparring over what appears to be an ego clash. It is reported that the quarrel was based on the feeble heartbeat of the foetus.
In a shocking case of medical negligence, doctors couldn't save the newborn baby after indulging into a verbal spat during the surgery of a pregnant woman inside the operation theatre at Jodhpur's Umaid Hospital.
Tak is heard telling Nainwal that he had performed certain tests on the patient before the surgery, but the latter does not approve of them and begins threatening him with dire consequences.
Meanwhile, the Rajasthan High Court took cognisance of the incident of the verbal spat and has asked the hospital to submit a report by 2 pm today. "You stay within your limits", Nainwal, in green scrubs and surgery gear, is seen telling the anaesthetist.
The incident highlights flouting of various procedures and rules, starting with the presence of a mobile recording device inside the operation theatre. The doctors have been removed after the incident, confirmed by the hospital authorities. "We are yet to ascertain if the newborn's death was because of the spat".
AL Bhat, the principal of Sampurananda Medical College said both the doctors were immediately removed from duty.
Bhat said one of the doctors (an assistant professor) has been suspended and the file of the other doctor has been sent to the personnel department at Jaipur on the government's direction.
Reportedly, the argument between them continued for about half an hour.
