Italian Tourist dies at SCB in Cuttack, Negligence Alleged
TNI Bureau: The SCB Medical College and Hospital is back in the news again for all wrong reasons. A 63-year-old Italian tourist, who was undergoing treatment for encephalitis here, died yesterday under controversial circumstances.
The tourist, Sebastian Rosario Contiguglia was admitted to the SCB on November 26. He was diagnosed with inflammation of the brain. The doctors clarified that his blood pressure fell suddenly and he had problems in breathing, which led to his death.
However, some volunteers have alleged that he was shifted out of the ICU in a critical condition without any valid reason, which led to his death. The hospital authorities have denied these allegations.
