“Patients’ Day” (Rogi Divas) On 28th May: A Day To Celebrate Patients’ Rights And To Demand Speedy Medical Justice For All Victims of “Medical Negligence”

PBT calls all conscientious citizens and victims of “medical negligence” across India to observe Rogi Divas (Patients’ Day) on Sunday (May 28). Patients’ Day is to spread better awareness about medical and legal rights of all patients and to establish a timely justice delivery system for all victims of alleged “medical negligence”. While MCI Code of Medical Ethics and Regulations and Consumer Protection Act (CPA) have provided legal as well as medical regulatory power for protection of the defenseless patients from careless or negligent treatment by doctors and hospitals, it is a common knowledge today that medical councils, that are in charge of taking disciplinary action against errant doctors, primarily function to shield their delinquent medical colleagues without any concern for the hapless patients. Even the Consumer Courts in India have failed to deliver timely justice as cases against the wealthy and influential doctors/hospitals languish in the court for years and decades.

To celebrate Rogi Divas, PBT will hold an open public seminar at 4 pm on Sunday (May 28) at Calcutta Press Club (near Maidan, Kolkata) where all conscientious citizens and victims of “medical negligence” are invited to attend and raise their voices demanding medical justice for all. You can contact 9831983670 or 9143650171 for more information about this public seminar.

    Delayed Justice means justice denied, speedy justice in medical negligence is statutory right of every patient. I support this move for improving the quality of healthcare in India.

    Good initiative, which would have been even more effective had it been organized across the country. Perhaps this time next year, it will?

    It took me only seven years to know for sure about the doctor who first attended my deceased brother in the casualty of the Apollo Gleneagles Hospital. Three different names were given by the three senior doctors of the hospital working on the responsible administrative posts at that point of time about the doctor on the duty in the casualty, who first attended my brother just in a span of seven months. Most disgusting fact, which emerged in NCDRC very recently was that both the medical director and the medical superintendent concealed the identity of the doctor on the duty.

    There should be a public website containing records of Doctor’s Name and details that have been convicted in medical negligence or are currently being sued for medical negligence. This will definetely have a profound effect in deterring medical negligence.

    My family is also a victim of medical negligence. I’ve started the petition “Medical Council of India, Lilavati Hospital: Cancel License, expel Corrupt Nephrologist Hemant Mehta, Prashant Rajput who killed my Mom” and need your help to get it off the ground.

    Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now. Here’s the link:
