Negligence in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy results in patient death: ISPAT, Apollo Hospitals, Doctors slapped Rs 25 lakh compensation
The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) recently held Doranda-based Ispat Hospital and Andur Razzaque Ansari Memorial Weavers' Hospital (Apollo Hospitals Group) and its doctors guilty of medical negligence while providing treatment to a patient operated for removal of the gall bladder.
Following the operation, the condition of the patient worsened and she ultimately died because of internal bleeding leading to cardio-respiratory failure.
Previously, while considering the matter, the State Commission had exonerated the Apollo Hospital. However, now the top consumer court has noted that the "doctors at ISPAT and Apollo Hospital liable for not exercising their reasonable skills and failed to provide standard of reasonable care."
