A dengue illness can be found at home or at some point in time. However, this disease can sometimes cost a living. In one such case, the Supreme Court recently imposed a fine of Rs 15 lakh to a hospital in Bhopal, causing the death of a dengue patient. However, doctors of the hospital are released from the charge of negligence. Arun Kumar Manglik Vishwaroop Health and Medicare Pvt. Ltd. ‘in this case. Dhananjay Chandrachud and Justice A Bench of Hemant Gupta gave the result.
Let’s look at the short story of this case. D On November 15, 2009, the petitioner’s 56-year-old wife Madhu Manglik has to be admitted to the above-mentioned hospital in Bhopal due to dengue fever and breathes the last night around 8.50. Therefore, the petitioner filed a complaint with the state consumer commissioner of Madhya Pradesh for compensation of Rs 48 lakh. The State Consumer Commission approves the complaint and partially approves the compensation claim of six lakh rupees. Further, the decision of the National Commission for the State is changed by the State Commission and the result is given in favor of the hospital and finally, the case reaches the Supreme Court.
The allegations against the complainant’s hospital were: The treatment of the wife was of great negligence. The treatment done by the hospital is not done in time, it has not been done by the hospital. At the time of admission, the platelet count of the patient was 1.7 9 lakh, which was reduced by 9 7,000 in the evening. Despite this, the hospital’s health needs to be reviewed from time to time, it has not been taken. Similarly, the World Health Council did not use the standard treatment system for Dengue, and the hospital did not use it.
The defense said that while refuting all charges, they took all appropriate care and did not take any care of them. On the other hand, there were some cardiovascular complaints before admission. The doctors tried their best to save the patient by using their knowledge and skills.
The Supreme Court gave all the documents, considering the medical books, and hearing the argument on both sides, in favor of the petitioner. Meanwhile, the Indian Medical Council had set up an independent ‘Ethics Committee’ to investigate whether the doctor was negligent. The committee also gave a report to the doctor that even though the doctor had treated him as per the prevailing norms, he did not do it at the right time. The Supreme Court has stated, that the World Health Council has given the help of the treatment of dengue and its type, its different steps and the like. This treatment point has been accepted in India too. In those cases, the symptoms of dengue from time to time are mainly examined by platelet count, periodic blood examination, maintaining balance in the body. However, in this case, the above does not appear to be done by the doctor and the patient lost his life, the court further stated.
After dismissing many previous decisions of the Supreme Court, the court further stated that there is no assumption that the doctor is responsible for negligence on the death of the patient. The doctors should use their knowledge and skills in every case. High-quality skills are not intended here, but considering the given case, it is expected to be treated as generally accepted standards. There may be more than two treatments for disease and there may be differences among doctors. Every doctor has the right to decide according to his / her experience and therapeutic methods, and if this method has been recognized as a standard practice, then the doctor can not be held guilty as the patient has not been cured. However, it has been mentioned earlier in an earlier statement that if such treatment method is unwarranted, then it can be proved that the doctor can be held guilty. Every doctor has certain duties towards the patient. The court said that if any discrepancy in the selection of the appropriate treatment method and treatment of the procedure is good, then the doctor can be held guilty.
In this case, see the documentation from 7 is to 7 pm. H. O As per the prescribed procedure, blood and other tests have not been shown from time to time and therefore, the doctors prove their failure in their duty. The court also said that the Indian Medical Council also mentioned it. When the relatives of the patient were opposed to blood tests, the court argued that the rationalism is a game of mind.
Value of housework
The question remains to compensate. While giving the compensation, the state commission said that the dead woman was a housewife and therefore Rs. Six lakhs more
