A new thought-provoking article, “The dangerous doctors who get away”, published earlier this week in the “Morning Context” underscores decades of high-profile medical negligence cases that brings to light the almost non-existent to get equitable medical justice by the hapless victims of medical negligence. The report also describes how the seemingly untouchable and influential members of the medical community get away from justice just by dragging the cases for decades in the quagmire of the medical justice system to frustrate the victim’s distraught families. PBT has been fighting for a very long time in demand of a real fast-track consumer court to deal with the “medical negligence” cases through administrative and legal cases (PILs) in the High Court and Supreme Court but will little or no support from the authority. Although no official data is available from the Consumer Courts or the law department in India, PBT is directly involved with cases against allegedly negligent doctors/hospitals that are still pending in the court for more than 20 years since the start of the legal case.

Law & Legal processes in India are not being practised to punish such corrupt Doctor’s but instead have turned out as a tool to protect such Doctor’s from any act of negligence or corruption! I see the only way out of this mess is to keep a public history of unsuccessful or botched surgeries done by such corrupt Doctor’s/hospitals with feedbacks from verified patients. Products and Service Providers are rated by consumers for all kind of services/products (Eg. Amazon, Gartner Quadrants) to warn other probable consumers from falling prey to poor sellers/products. Indian legal system cannot protect the poor and helpless and is designed to protect and promote the corrupt and powerful. Hence, our only chance is to come together and expose such corrupt Doctor’s/hospitals in a verified & genuine public forum. I am doing my part…FYI below:
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”.
