PBT President As “Role Model” In British Medical Journal (BMJ) For His Endless Battle Against Medical Corruption

British Medical Journal (BMJ), one of the premier international medical journals in the world, just published an article holding PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, as “Role Model” for his long-drawn selfless fight against medical negligence and pervasive healthcare corruption in India (see article below). As BMJ has reported, the relentless battle against medical corruption in India by Dr. Saha started with the tragic death of his young wife (Anuradha Saha) from gross medical negligence by several senior doctors during a social visit to India in 1998. Although Supreme Court of India eventually held these doctors and AMRI Hospital in Kolkata guilty for causing Anuradha’s death and awarded highest-ever compensation (Rs. 11.5 crore) in 2013, Dr. Saha has continued his fight to cleanse the rot in Indian medicine and helping the hapless victims of medical negligence in India through the charitable organization, People for Better Treatment (PBT), that he established in 2001.

Although permanently settled in USA for the past almost 30 years, Dr. Saha frequently visits India (at least twice each year) and appears to argue in courts on behalf of the victims of medical negligence and also public interest litigations (PILs) against medical corruption. One of the major aspects in these legal fights has been Dr. Saha’s relentless attempts to bring Dr. Ketan Desai, ex-MCI president and biggest medical mafia in Indian medical history, to justice. Dr. Desai was caught red-handed by the CBI in 2010 for taking bribe from a private medical college but recently, all criminal cases against Desai were dropped by the CBI on a flimsy technical ground. PBT and Dr. Saha are in the process to move the court to bring justice to Dr. Desai and the arbitrary action by the CBI.

    Gross medical negligence and corruption in the subordinate judiciary.
    A 24 year old lady came with abdominal pain. The surgeon suspected only pelvic inflammatory disease and so the VICTIM was referred to the gynecologist. Gynecologist has ruled out pelvic inflammatory disease, but admitted the VICTIM for pecuniary benefit. To justify the admission the gynecologist prescribed Ampicillin which has to be given four times daily. Ampicillin was given at 11.A.M. and at 11.15.A.M. the VICTIM developed dysponea meaning breathlessness,along with sweating,and absence of pulse and blood pressure. No cardiopulmonary resuscitation was done and so brain death occurred at 11.20.A.M. At the latest. The judgment is silent about the absence of pulse and blood pressure

    Gross medical negligence and corruption in the subordinate judiciary Kollam Additional Sessions Court Kollam V no:1675/11 dated 30/12/17.Appeal no: Crl.A.Victim no: 275/18 is pending before the High Court of Kerala. Mother of the diseased is the victim as per Criminal procedure code.
    A 24 year old lady came with abdominal pain. The surgeon suspected only pelvic inflammatory disease and so the VICTIM was referred to the gynecologist. The gynecologist has ruled out pelvic inflammatory disease. But she prescribed Ampicillin which has to be given four times daily to justify admission for pecuniary benefit. Ampicillin injection given at 11.A.M. and at 11.15.A.M. the VICTIM had sweating, dysponea meaning breathlessness and absence of pulse and blood pressure. This is the hallmark of anaphylaxis. No cardiopulmonary resuscitation was done and so brain death occurred at 11.20.A.M. At the latest. The judgment is silent about the absence of pulse and blood pressure since if mentioned it will attract CAUSA and acquittal would not have been possible. The defense argument note also is silent about the absence of pulse and blood pressure at 11.15.A.M.
    Then the gynecologist referred the dead body to another hospital with a reference letter in which Ampicillin is not mentioned. The judgment states that “all medicines administered to Lekshmi are not mentioned and this is negligence on the part of the hospital authorities”.
    This is to trivialize the fact that Ampicillin is not mentioned in the reference letter and also to create a smoke screen regarding who prescribed Ampicillin. As per the original case sheet and prosecution note gynecologist has prescribed Ampicillin. The defense argument note is silent about the reference letter.

    Congrats Dr Saha! It was high time that Dr Saha is recognised for his effort. I hope that India acknowledges this and does something about the prevalent negligence and corruption in the country.

    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”.
