Doctor Allegedly Leaves Phone Inside Mom After Delivering Baby
A new mother is claiming that her doctor accidentally left his smartphone inside of her after delivering her baby.
According to the Daily Mail Hanan Mahmoud Abdul Karim, 36, gave birth to a healthy baby boy via Caesarean section on April 24. Following her surgery the patient began to experience medical complications after she left the private hospital.
Several family members claim they saw Karim’s stomach vibrating shortly after her departure from the hospital.
Karim’s mother explained, “My daughter suffered serious pains and could not move. I brought her back to the hospital where she was treated, but nothing was done for her. She was then taken to a different hospital to undergo X-rays on her abdomen.”
Doctors say an unspecified object was found inside of the patient’s stomach.
A spokesman from the Jordanian Health Ministry called the case “baseless” and “fabricated” but failed to elaborate on the foreign object any further.
Parliament member Salim Al Bataynah was so appalled, he suggested government officials give up their jobs to show respect for the woman’s suffering. Bataynah proclaimed, “In countries which show respect to their nations, and following such scandals, governments usually resign. The parliament should show responsibility and be on the level of the case.”
At this time, it is unclear if the patient plans on suing the doctor and his staff for their alleged gross neglect.
