A probe is underway over an incident involving a six-day old infant whose finger had been accidentally cut allegedly by a nurse attached to the Bandaranaike Children's Hospital, Peradenya.

Hospital Deputy Director Dr. Sampath Ranaweera who confirmed the incident said two inquiries by the Department and the hospital were progressing.

An operation had been performed to save the finger of the child, but it has not been successful. Therefore another surgery is due to be performed within the next few days.

The Nurse had reportedly admitted that the finger was cut accidentally, while administering an injection. (L.B.Senaratne)

    Not all but some nurses behave inhumane. My wife got a worse experience in peradeniya hospital in labour room. She was insulted because of religion.

    It can be a mistake, but you have to take extreme care when you deal with infants. You should have heard about Rizana's case in Saudi Arabia. That was also claimed to be an accident, but Rizana was sentenced to death. I think you will be pardoned by the parents and the government. Do some charity work.

    Some nurses treat patients like rubbish. These are the things that Mervyn Silva should talk about and not thousands of years old religious practices of a minority community.

    Medical staff is only concerned on their salary dues and to go on strike.

    How could this happen to a baby. God save Sri Lanka.

    Can a person on earth believe the statement ' finger was cut accidentally, while administering an injection." Se is trying to cover up the negligence

    When she was in labour pain she shouted 'Jesus'. One senior nurse blamed her "only females are here. Not your Jesus. " really pathetic.

    This certainly cannot happen by giving an injection. In another report is was stated that it happened while cutting a bandage. This can happen, but due to carelessness.

    Does the hospital have enough medical staff ? I know in government hospitals nurses are overloaded with work.

    RAMESH Saturday, 25 August 2012 05:07 AM

    you are correct upto a certain extent. These people are very much concerned about their salary and ready to strike even for pitty reasons yet fail to fulfill their duty. Poor child. The nurse should be severly punished for her ignorance. She is IGNORANT i would say

    citizen1 Saturday, 25 August 2012 03:12 PM

    This is believeable. Must have tried to rush it.
