Women's panel recommends fresh probe in medical negligence

From BHOPAL: Another case of medical negligence came up before the Bhopal bench of state women's panel on Saturday. According to the complainant, a doctor had left a vaginal pack inside a woman who underwent a normal delivery at the hospital. The panel censured doctors of the probe panel, who had submitted the report without consulting the patient or the doctor -against whom the complaint was registered. A resident of Bhopal, Kajal Puri underwent a normal delivery at the Jawahar Lal Nehru Hospital. However, the attending doctor Dr Suman Mali left a vaginal pack inside her afterwards which was found out by a private doctor. "Even though the woman submitted appropriate papers pertaining to negligence of hospital, the probe committee, did not take them into account. Version of only other hospital doctors were included which resulted in a biased report," said chairperson of State Women's Commission (SWC) Upma Rai. "SWC has recommended that a fresh report be drafted after taking into account views of all parties involved," she said. Meanwhile, registrar of the MP medical council appeared before SWC on Saturday in connection with the death of Tejaswini Bhargava at St Joseph Hospital, Hoshangabad. Her family had also lodged a complaint of medical negligence leading to the death of Tejaswini. "We have prepared certain recommendations in that case. The registrar was told to put a hold on the medical committee's report and present the same along with the recommendations to the ethical committee," Rai said.
