Negligence in discharging duties that claimed a life

Vijayawada, April 25, 2007

The Andhra Pradesh Medical Council has canceled the registration of two doctors working in Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad on the charges of negligence in the discharge of their duties while treating a patient who died.

At a press conference on Wednesday, the Council Chairman V. Ramprasad said that action had been taken against the doctors Udaya Nayak and Nagraj after conducting a thorough inquiry into the death of an engineering student who was admitted on May 28, 2004 with fever and died on June 8. The victim's father dashed a written complaint to the President of India who forwarded the same to Medical Council of India who in turn referred the matter to State Council.

Dr. Ram Prasad said that the 'Ethics and Malpractices Committee' of the State Council held an inquiry into the case and took sworn affidavits of these two doctors who treated the patient. The committee had taken 18 months to conduct a thorough probe and establish that wrong doing on the part of the doctors. He added that the registrations of the suspended doctors would be renewed after six months on the basis of their application. He asked the public to to address grievances should be addressed to the Registrar, Andhra Pradesh Medical Council, Sultan Bazar, Hyderabad for taking necessary action against the erring doctors.
