admitted at KAH on October 7, 2023, at 0722 hours with altered sensorium followed by loss

of consciousness.

 

At around 1400 hrs, MOHAN Foundation team along with the treating physician met with

the family members of the patient and explained to them the process of brain stem death

testing. The family members requested to wait for another day to conduct the testing and

asked for any possibility of referring the patient to Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical

Sciences (JNIMS), Porompat, Imphal, for further management.

 

On October 10, 2023, the patient was transferred to JNIMS as per the family’s wishes and

was admitted to the Intensive Critical Care Unit (ICCU) at 1133 hours. At JNIMS, the MOHAN

Foundation team, represented by Ms. Monica and Ms. Udayini, conducted initial discussions
