Death of Pregnant Woman, Unborn Child: NCDRC directs Bengaluru Hospital, Anesthetist to pay Rs 1.6 crore compensation to patient's family members
The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) has directed a Bengaluru-based hospital and its Anesthetist to pay altogether Rs 1.6 crore compensation to the family members of a patient, who died while undergoing Caesarean Section along with her unborn baby.
While the hospital and the treating doctors claimed that the death of the patient happened due to anaphylactic reaction, the top consumer court disagreed with this opinion. Relying upon the Post Mortem findings and expert opinions, the NCDRC bench observed that the patient died due to hemorrhagic shock which could be only due to trauma inside the OT.
