Private Nursing Home in Madhya Pradesh Fined For Negligence

A private nursing home in Bhopal and two of its doctors have been asked by the Madhya Pradesh Consumer forum to pay a Rs.100,000 fine for alleged// post-operative negligence resulting in the death of a patient.

Phool Chand Soni admitted his wife Sarla to Ayushman Hospital following swelling in her uterus and respiratory trouble.

"Investigations revealed a tumor in her uterus. Since the tumor was not malignant and the possibility of cancer was ruled out, the doctors advised that an operation would cure her. She was operated on May 20 by Maya Pathak of the hospital, and Ravi Gupta of Sanjeevani Hospital also attended to her", said Soni in his complaint to the forum.

While some of the stitches were taken off after 12 days of the operation, the patient was told that the rest of the stitches would be taken off later. But Soni alleged that the nurse took off the stitches the next day, which led to pus formation in the area of surgery.

When this was brought to Pathak's knowledge, she said there was nothing serious and the wound would cure in two-three days. Despite Sarla's worsening condition, she was discharged from the hospital June 16.

She was then taken to another hospital where she was detected to be suffering from bacterial infection and she died July 22.

The tribunal said that the patient had died of bacterial infection due to lack of post-operative care and it held the hospital and the doctors involved in the operation responsible for Sarla's death.

It ordered them to pay a compensation of Rs. 100,000 to the family of the deceased either jointly or separately within 30 days, failing which they will be liable to pay interest at the rate of nine percent to the kin of the deceased.
