I found the following story on LabAid Cardiac Hospital in an e-mail forwarded to me. The story is about alleged negligence and mistreatment at the hospital. I searched online to make sure this was not another of those fake e-mail. I found more media reports and blog comments about this “Top” hospital. Here they are:
My intuition of sending this e-mail to you is to raise my voice against LabAid Cardiac Hospital and provide a real picture about LabAid, so that the LabAid hospital change their attitude with their future customers.
Please read the newspaper article which was published on The Daily Janakantha on 19 Dec, 2007, also, please see the YouTube
video on the actual condition of my father while he was under treatment at LabAid Cardiac Hospital,
The person that you are watching on this video is not in this world anymore! He died on 11 Nov, 2007 at LabAid Cardiac Hospital, Dhaka , Bangladesh while treating under Prof.(Dr.) Baren Chakrabarti, Prof. (Dr.) M. Matiur Rahman (who is actually not a professor, but using this fancy title) and Prof. (Dr.) Ali Hossain (the best doctors in our country with some fancy fake title.!!!).
We trusted the fancy ads of LabAid, also trusted the fancy titled doctors and nurses. But look at the real picture of LabAid's CCU Bed No. 8. After the surgery they left my father on the bed without any proper attention. The LabAid doctors are so busy to catch another new CCU patient, which they forget about stitching the surgery area of the current patient. Look at the blood all over the bed! Look at.. how clean LabAid's CCU unit is!
I raised my voice when I saw the real picture of LabAid. For raising my voice I got slapped on my face in front of the all the people by the LabAid G.M. Mr. Imran Chowdhury.
I am sure LabAid doctors who were involve with my father's treatment has got a good amount of share from the bill, but can they really tell that the hospital/or even the doctor's has done a proper treatment for that helpless guy Mr. A. K. M. Fazlul Haq (my father)? He was just lying on the CCU Bed No. 8 helplessly for 15 days and expecting his sons, also the doctors will take care of him properly. We have done our part from the bottom of our heart; we were ready to spend all of our savings and everything to get a proper treatment for our father, because he is our father who took care of us properly. But Mr. or Ms. Lab Aid administrators. ...Have you guys taken care of my father properly? I am sure you did not, because I am the one who is one of your victims. How come a person who didn't even have any heart surgery or any type of major surgery, but got a bill for 5 and Half lac taka (BD Tk.5,00, 000.00, AU$8,155.00, US$7,288.00) ???
Dr. Lutfor Rahman (Head of LabAid's Cardiac Hospital ) (I am pointing you because you are the golden son of our country), do you guys still wanna claim that Heart Surgery is cheaper in Bangladesh now? On 11 Nov, 2007 when my auntie (Ms. Sharmin Naaz, Assitt. Commissioner of Taxes, Bangladesh Govt.) went to see with you regarding my father's bill that time you mentioned about your contribution in Bangladesh . You were also talking about you can make 1 lac take in a matter of second. Well, done Dr. Lutfor Rahman...Well done! We're really proud of your contribution (?) to our country! Here is one of your biggest contributions to our country's medical history which was published on the Daily Janakantha on 19 Dec, 2007 -- ("Lab Aid has become a human killing machine" The Daily Janakantha, 19 Dec, 2007")
Life is very interesting Dr. Lutfor Rahman! When we lost our love ones then we feel for it, but then we forget about it. Instead of forgetting about my father's death, I want to raise my voice against LabAid Cardiac Hospital and request all of you to "STOP GOING TO THE LabAID for any heart treatment" and wanna make those doctors to understand that they should not play with any humans life, because no matter how powerful or rich they could be, they will never be able to give a life back to a dead man's life! So, STOP f..ing around with a human life, OKAI Dr. Lutfor Rahman, Prof (Dr.) Baren Chakraborty, also the others who are involve in this human killing business!
The LabAid hospital needs to know a little bit about the power of Internet in disseminating information. I will request to all of you also do the same (when forwarding the article, send CC or copies to the lab-aid related addresses, so that the LabAid individuals feel a little shame every time they receive a copy of this email).
Here are the email addresses of the LabAid individuals with their full name:
