  1. The National Board of Examinations, which regulates almost 7,000 post-graduate medical seats, mostly in private hospitals, has refused to share inspection reports of hospitals on the basis of which seats were granted. In its response to RTI applications, the NBEstated that it had asked the hospitals if information pertaining to them could be given to a third party but the hospitals had refused. The Medical Council of India (MCI), which regulates roughly 28,000 PG seats, in contrastputs all inspection reports on its website. Since post graduateseats regulated by NBE are equivalent to those regulated by MCI and both bodies essentially perform the same function, it is not clear why NBE cannot also put this information in the public domain. Asked why they had refused to part with this information, NBEofficials told TOI that its assessment reports also included employment contracts of hospitals with faculty members and income tax details of the faculty along with pan number, which areconfidential and could not be shared. Asked why such information alone could not be kept confidential while revealing the assessment reports, they claimed the relevant assessment documents, list of assessors and other details would be put up on the new website once it becomes operational by June end. Yet, the NBErefused this information to RTI applicants.

  3. Mysuru, June 22:- Beware of quacks! If you are unwell and need to visit a doctor, better be careful. Or else, you may be risking your life. Recent RTI information reveals that fake clinics and doctors are mushrooming alarmingly in the district. The report has said that that 119 fake clinics, 169 polyclinics and 59 fake nursing homes and 496 BAMS doctors are functioning in the district. Though BAMS doctors have to prescribe only Ayurvedic medicine, they are prescribing allopathic medicines also. On their part, District Health Officers have maintained a stoic silence over the issue. In the event of a medical disaster, negligence cases are not being filed against the concerned doctor or the clinic. Several deaths and casualties have been reported over the years but the guilty have escaped without being punished. Mysore District has 496 BAMS doctors, who are far more than MBBS doctors. A quack had recently told a woman she was carrying which turned out to be wrong. In another case, a student died after he was treated by a quack at HD Kote six months back. Incidentally, the student was given a wrong injection. Hundreds of fake clinics and fake doctors are functioning around KR Hospital in the city. Fake polyclinics and medical shops are also rapidly increasing in the city day-by-day.

  6. After keeping out doctors with disability from over a thousand central health services (CHS) jobs for years, the health ministry has decided to open up teaching, non-teaching and public health specialist cadres of CHS to doctors with disability. The decision was the result of one doctor's relentless fight for justice over four years. Through an RTI application, Dr Singh found out that all specialist jobs under CHS, whether teaching, non-teaching or public health, were deemed not suitable for persons with disabilities. "To be granted an MBBS or MD/MS (post-graduation) degree, all disabled medical students attend clinical postings, operation theatres, OPDs and emergency postings during internship. How could they say we are not suitable? It was shocking. So, in December 2014, I wrote to the health minister requesting that all specialist posts under CHS be opened for doctors with disabilities," said Dr Singh. Though the minister sought action, it was only after repeated reminders and phone calls to ministry officials that Dr Singh was finally told that all CHS posts were open to persons with disabilities. However, they did not give him a copy of the order. It took an RTI application for him to eventually get a copy on June 6.

  10. US-based Indian doctor Kunal Saha, fighting a case of medical negligence in India over his wife's death, has moved a writ petition before the Calcutta High Court seeking action against the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) and its functionaries for their 'deliberate violation' of the Right to Information (RTI) Act, 2005. The petition filed on Jan 11 also named WBMC president Ashok Chowdhury, its registrar D.K. Ghosh as well as the West Bengal Information Commissioner, charging them with violating the act. Saha's wife Anuradha had died from alleged medical negligence during a trip to Kolkata in 1998. The WBMC acquitted all three doctors accused of medical negligence after an investigation, which Saha termed 'botched up' saying that the organisation had 'refused to provide any documents until now'. Since her death, Saha, an AIDS specialist, has been fighting legal battles in different courts, including the Supreme Court, against the three senior Kolkata doctors (Sukumar Mukherjee, Abani Roychowdhury and Baidyanath Halder) for their alleged wrongful treatment and against medical corruption in India. 'The Right to Information Act has ignited the battle for medical justice in West Bengal,' Saha told IANS over telephone from Columbus, Ohio, in the US. 'The WBMC has always shielded the errant doctors through sham 'investigation' behind closed doors. RTI Act has given ordinary people an extraordinary power to fight this corrupt practice by the medical council,' Saha said. 'While separate 'criminal' and 'compensation' cases are still pending before the Supreme Court against these doctors, the blatant violation of RTI Act by WBMC has been challenged this week before the Calcutta High Court,' Saha said. While Saha's appeal against the WBMC final order is pending before the apex court, he has sought all documents/materials related to the investigation of his complaint by virtue of the RTI. He said he had moved the high court because the WBMC remained non-responsive to his demand for documents. Besides the 'criminal' case against the three doctors, a 'civil' appeal for Rs.1.43 billion (Rs.777 million plus 12 percent interest since 1998) are pending in the Supreme Court. Saha in the course of his legal battle has formed an organisation called People for Better Treatment (PBT) after teaming up with other aggrieved patients in India.

    Bitter pill for doctors

    Bitter pill for doctors by PUSHPA GIRIMAJI CHECK-OUT /Telegraph India Monday , June 16 , 2008 Patients in India may not have a special law codifying their rights (as in many other countries), but several orders of the apex consumer court have helped protect their rights, particularly the right to information, the right to proper and humane treatment and the right to medical records. Now in a recent order, the highest consumer court in the country has upheld the right of the patient to all basic and vital information pertaining to the drugs prescribed by the doctor. Failure to give this vital information constitutes deficiency in the service provided by the doctor and he would be held liable for the consequences of such deficiency, the apex consumer court has said (Dr V.K. Ghodekar vs Sumitra Prahlad Korgaonkar, RP No. 1727 of 2002, decided on May 22, 2008). In an earlier case (Dr Shyam Kumar vs Rameshbhai Harmanbhai Kachhiya, RP No. 1486 of 2001), the apex consumer court had pointed out that a doctor was duty bound to inform the patient about the details of the disease afflicting him, the various alternatives available to him and the risks involved in the proposed treatment. Failure to do so constituted negligence in the service provided. Then in the case of Shri S.R. Shivaprakash vs Wockardt Hospital, Mumbai (OP No. 208 of 1993) the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission had held that the hospital or the doctor has an obligation to provide all medical records (pertaining to the treatment) to the patient or the relatives (in case of the death of the patient). Failure to furnish the details would open the hospital or the doctor to the charge of deficiency in service, the commission had said. The latest case (Dr V.K. Ghodekar vs Sumitra Prahlad Korgaonkar) is an important addition to these previous cases upholding the rights of the patients. The latest order has its origin in the failure of the doctor who prescribed an anti-diabetic drug, to inform the patient as to when he should take it (before or after food), that he should avoid alcohol and also the side effects of the drug. The doctor also did not confirm that the patient actually had diabetes before prescribing the medicine. This led to Prahlad Korgaonkar (45) suffering hypoglycaemia, resulting in his going into a coma and eventually, death. The apex consumer court held the doctor guilty of not giving the patient proper and adequate information about the drug, thereby providing negligent service. This order should force medical practitioners to communicate better with patients and respect their right to information, particularly in respect of the medicines that they are advised to take. http://www.telegraphindia.com/1080616/jsp/atleisure/story_9417454.jsp
  13. New Delhi, Oct 14: Barely 22% of doctors, catering to Parliamentarians, belong to the reserved category, including only two in the super-speciality field. According to a reply to a Right To Information (RTI) application by the Central Government Health Services, as many as 49 doctors had been posted in VIP areas, including Parliament House, Parliament Annexe, Constitution House, North and South Avenue and V P House. "This is shocking that these politicians, who have been demanding reservation in super-speciality stream of medical education, have never stressed on this at their homes," Dev Ashish Bhattacharya, the RTI activist, who had moved the application, said. He clarified his application was not against any caste or tribe but was only to show the difference between what the politicians preach and what they practise. According to the reply, 49 doctors had been posted in VIP areas catering to the MPs and ministers out of which nine were from Schedule Caste (ST) and one each from Schedule Tribe (ST) and Other Backward Class (OBC). As many as 15 doctors of the 49 were those who had completed their Masters in Doctorate (MD) or Masters in Surgery (MS) and the number in reserved category was only two. The RTI application had also sought the names of panel of doctors in CGHS for President and Prime Minister of the country to which the reply was that "no panel" was attached to the VVIP from the Central Government Health Services. Bhattacharya had moved an RTI application earlier in which he had sought number of reserved and general categories staff attached with the union ministers which included private secretaries, additional private secretaries, assistant private secretaries and first personal assistants. Out of 55 private secretaries attached with various ministers, 49 belonged to the general category, four were SC and two were from ST category. There was only one additional private secretary from general category, while three were from ST. Out of the 77 assistant private secretaries, 68 belonged to general category, seven were from SC and one each from ST and OBC. There were only eight persons employed as first personal assistants and all of them were from the OBC.
