The complaint further alleged that the doctors advised for gall bladder surgery and the patient was taken for Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangad Pancreotography (ERCP) without her or her husband’s consent.
It further alleged that she suffered cardiac arrest during the procedure.
It also said that in spite of repeated requests that she was already suffering from a lung disease and was under treatment with steroids, the doctor directly performed for ERCP in a negligent manner without conducting necessary tests.
The hospital and the doctor denied the allegations saying all the necessary precautions were taken with utmost care.
They also contended that the complainant was covered under Central Government Health Service Scheme, therefore, he is not entitled for compensation.
However, the state commission asked the hospital and the doctor to pay the amount to Sastry.
