MCI Directs Investigation Of W.B. Medical Council President For Dialysis Of A Dog In Top Government Hospital For Human

Medical Council of India (MCI) passed an order directing West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) to investigate complaint lodged by PBT against Dr. Nirmal Maji (WBMC president and MLA who is known to be very close Mamata Banerjee) and two other senior government doctors, for their role in planning dialysis of their pet dog at the SSKM Hospital, a premier state post-graduate medical center in Kolkata. Dr. Maji and SSKM superintendent (Dr. Pradip Mitra) and head of Nephrology (Dr. Rajendra Pandey) were involved in organizing dialysis of a pet dog at the SSKM hospital putting lives of countless patients to serious danger abusing their high governmental positions and political influence in 2015. Fortunately, the news was leaked to the media causing a huge public uproar that prevented final dialysis of the dog in a machine for humans.

PBT lodged a complaint with WBMC for exemplary disciplinary action against the three doctors for their brazenly unethical conduct. After WBMC remained silent for two years, PBT lodged an appeal (under section 8.7 of MCI Code of Ethics & Regulations, 2002) with the MCI seeking action against the three doctors. In its order earlier this month, MCI has referred the case back to WBMC directing them to complete investigation and take appropriate disciplinary action within a period of 3 months. MCI has further said in their order that if WBMC fails to complete investigation within 3 months, PBT may return to MCI for justice. But the obvious question – are WBMC members qualified to conduct a fair and impartial investigation against their own president? PBT has called for investigation by independent doctors from out of state to avoid possibility of the appearance of a conflict of interest (see the news below).

    This is truly shocking! A politician’s Dog is above countless dialysis patients – who could have suffered severe infection and agony for weeks to come.

    My family is also a victim of medical negligence. I’ve started the petition “Medical Council of India, Lilavati Hospital: Cancel License, expel Corrupt Nephrologist Hemant Mehta, Prashant Rajput who killed my Mom” and need your help to get it off the ground.

    Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now. Here’s the link:

    Основные достоинства мойки с самообслуживанием перед классической портальной автомобильной мойкой

    Новый автомобиль — это сложное техническое устройство, которое нуждается в нежной эксплуатации и постоянном обслуживании. Мойка авто считается важнейшим элементом технического обслуживания, потому как она позволяет не только сделать машинку визуально чистенькой, но и оградить от ржавления кузов авто, увеличив период его службы.

    В последние десять лет огромной популярностью на всей Земле, в том числе и в нашей стране, пользуются мойки-самообслуживание и причин данной тенденции можно найти сразу несколько.

    Основной аргумент в пользу автомойка самообслуживания цена — это колоссальная экономия средств на периодической мойке легковушки, по сравнению с эксплуатацией обычной портальной автомойки.

    Приехав на мойку нового типа, вы заплатите лишь за эксплуатацию аппаратуры и места на мойке, причем тарифы тут крайне щадящие. Еще большей экономичности можно достичь, если использовать магазинные косметические средства химии, а не приобретать их на мойке.
