Is Medical Negligence Increasing in India?

shriram | 25th January 2014 | Social Development

    For families seeking help in cases of alleged medical negligence, the State Medical Council can be of little help as there is no mechanism in place to deal with such cases. The general public seems to be unaware about the law that safeguards a medical practitioner. The Medical Council Act, 1956, had no provisions to take action against doctors found guilty of medical negligence. In the regulations brought out in 2002, the statutory body said action could be taken against such doctors but did not stipulate any section or provision under which they could be penalized. The council and other medical bodies like the Indian Medical Association also believe that constituting a medical tribunal will help in conducting thorough inquiries. The victims, who have seen their family members suffer due to medical negligence, said there was need to bring transparency in the health care system of the country. All the state's Government should seriously look in to this and make
more strict laws in consumers and medical council as well.
