Gross Negligence on part of the Doctors led to loss of vision of the patient...

The Udaipur District Registration Authority and Chief Medical and Health Officer, Dr. Shankarlal Bamnia, has served a notice on the city's Magnus Hospital and banned them from taking in new patients with immediate effect. Management of the Magnus Hospital, located in Meera Nagar has also been directed to submit a reply regarding the report of the investigation committee within 5 days from the date of serving notice.

CMHO, Dr. Shankarlal Bamnia informed that District Collector and Chairman of District Registration Authority Arvind Poswal had recently constituted an inquiry committee on the alleged gross negligence in the treatment of the son of Apoorva Joshi and Yogesh Joshi, parents of the patient. The Hospital Management has been asked to submit their response on the report submitted by this inquiry committee. Poswal informed that the inquiry committee constituted in connection with the complaint lodged in the Vigilance Committee had conducted a detailed investigation on the complaint letter submitted by the applicant(s) to the District Collector of Udaipur. As per the complaint, their son had lost vision in both eyes due to the alleged gross negligence in the treatment of the child. In the investigation, it was found that the image of the medical fraternity has been tarnished by this act of the hospital and the applicant as well as the general public have been exposed to an irresponsible attitude in the working system of Magnus Hospital and that there has been agross negligence in the treatment, which has affected the patient for life.

CMHO Dr. Bamaniya, citing 4 points in the report given by the investigation committee said that the facts show that Magnus Hospital has tampered with the health of the patients in the hospital and are being seriously negligent in their treatment. Under these circumstances, there is no reason wht action should not be taken under the Clinical Establishment (Registration and Regulation) Act 2010.

In the notice served to the hospital, it is said that keeping in view all these circumstances, this act of the hospital falls under the category of improper conduct and professional misconduct. Due to this, there is a strong possibility of breaking the sanctity of medical profession and tarnishing its image among the general public. Along with this, tampering with the records and doing many times more caesarean sections (preterm births) than the average shows that personal financial interests are being given priority by ignoring the interests of the patients. Therefore, as per the Clinical Establishment Act 2010 and the guidelines of the Act issued from time to time in this regard, taking immediate action against the concerned hospital in the event of playing with or endangering the health of patients and especially newborns and pregnant women seems appropriate and just in wider public interest.

Ban imposed on admission of new patients in the hospital:

As per the provisions of the Act, if there appears to be a threat to the health of the patient, the committee has temporarily banned the admission of new patients with immediate effect from the date of receipt of the notice, while continuing the treatment of patients already admitted in his hospital until a final decision is taken in the next meeting of the District Registration Authority. The notice also directs that the admission of new patients will start only after permission from the District Registration Authority. The Collector, in his notice has warned that in this regard, the District Registration Authority Committee can take legal action against the hospital in relation to the said Act and action can also be taken to cancel the temporary registration of his hospital under the Clinical Establishment (Registration and Regulation) Act 2010. He has said in the notice that if the Management has any response or explanation in this regard, then it should submit the same along with supporting documents within the next five working days.
