Ammar Al Hindi, a man in his twenties has died on Sunday, May 19, 2019, after being hospitalized for treatment.
The medical report attributed the cause of the death to cardiac arrest, breathing, low blood pressure, gastritis, as well as enlarged intestines.
Nael Al Hindi, a cousin of the deceased told Roya that his cousin has been suffering for months from Crohn's disease, which is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and when he was hospitalized for treatment, he was given a synthetic dye and cortisone for computed tomography scanning.
Al Hindi added that the deceased's body was poisoned by medical needles and the dye, because he suffers from hypersensitivity, which led to his death, appealing to the Head of the Jordan Medical Association (JMA) to intervene.
Al Hindi noted that his cousin's health condition was very stable when he was referred to the hospital, wondering how his condition got worse within three to four hours.
For his part, Head of the JMA, Ali Al Abous said that the law of medical responsibility is in effect in Jordan, and relatives of the deceased can submit a complaint to the Higher Technical Committee at the Ministry of Health.
He added that the Higher Committee is responsible for receiving complaints and forming commissions of inquiry to determine the validity of the complaint.
Al Abous pointed out that the medical cases need scientific opinions and investigation of experts, stating that if the complainants did not receive any responses, they can head to the JMA.
Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that may cause abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, tiredness, weight loss and malnutrition. The inflammation caused by Crohn's disease can include different areas of the digestive system in different human bodies.
Infection with Crohn's disease is often widespread in the tissues of the affected bowel.
Crohn's disease can be painful and debilitating, and may sometimes lead to life-threatening complications.
Although there is no cure for Crohn's disease, treatments can significantly reduce its signs and symptoms, achieve long-term relief and make patients capable of coping with the disease.
