A pediatrician of the Nawaloka Hospital giving evidence at the inquest into the death of five-year-old Buddhini Kaushalya Ratnayake denied claims made by the parents that their daughter had died inside the MRI machine. Pediatrician Dr. Duminda Pathirana said the child had died in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) while being treated for Rett Syndrome. The child’s mother is seen outside the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court before the case was taken up for hearing. Pix by Pradeep Dilrukshana
Hasn't an autopsy been conducted to determine the cause and time of death ? Anyway, for the majority of our doctors, patients are nothing more than numbers on a channelling receipt. Wish there was way to inject compasssion to our modern day "Jeevaka s".

There seems to be some monkey business on the side of the hospital.
