      Then the Executive Committee has noted that in Case No.08/2008 i.e. complaint
made by Sri Gosu Nagabhushanam & Varamma aginast Dr.Thumu Rama Krishna, New

that the patient sustained facial injuries and head injury and patient was in drunken state
and responding to verbal commands. It was also stated that the drunken state of the
patient was not mentioned in the case-sheet as the patient‟s attendants request not to
mention drunken state. It has been stated that, they occasionally give paper ads in that
they expose the services available in the hospital. It was also stated that Patient got
acute Anterior Wall MI with Cardiogenic shock and subsequently patient died due to
sudden Cardio Respiratory Arrest at Spandana Hospital. As to the question whether the
patient recovered or not, the Respondent stated that during Intra-operative and
immediate post operative period stable and un-eventful. Patient shifted to post-operative

i.e. 07.01.2008 till 04.30 PM patient was stable and after that he went to bathroom, he

       Taking into consideration of the entire material on record, it is decided to approve
the findings of E&MPC, „that there is no negligence on the part of Respondent Dr.Thumu
Ramakrishna, in treating the patient Gosu Ananda Rao‟. The Executive Committee also
approves further findings of E&MPC „the allegation that the patient died in New Life Multi
Speciality Hospital is not proved‟. Having noted that the Respondent has stated that they
occasionally give paper ads, the Executive Committee decided to accept the recommendation of
the E&MPC ‟that he should be warned not to give wide publicity which will glorify his
personal image. He should also be warned to keep the records properly about the patient.
      Then the Executive Committee has considered the observations/recommendations
of Ethical & Mal Practices Committee in Case No. 24/2008– the complaint made by
Dr.Kylas Pabba against Dr.A.Sai Ravi Shanker. The Executive Committee noted that the
complainant in his complaint dated 16-12-2008 has alleged that the Respondent Doctor
did PGDC at NIMS and he is displaying D.Card (NIMS), DNB Card (NIMS) and acting as
consultant Cardiologist and also independent Cardiologist. The Executive Committee
noted that the E&MPC has observed that the Respondent had expressed his ignorance
and stated that he

was under impression that he was entitled to display DNB–Cardiology. The Executive
Committee further noted the observation of the E&MPC that “that Dr.Sai Ravi Shanker
got himself registered with Andhra Pradesh Medical Council in the month of February,
2009 whereas he is practising in Karimnagar for the past 5 years which is contrary to the
provisions of Andhra Pradesh Medical Practitioners Registration Act, 1968.” The
Committee felt that his statement that „he registered in Orissa and he do not know that
he has to register again in Andhra Pradesh‟ is not convincing. After taking into
consideration of entire material on record and the statements made by the parties
concerned, the Ethical & Mal-Practices Committee observed that the acts of the
Respondent, Dr.Sai Ravi Shankar are not in conformity with the IMC Regulations, 2002.
The Committee has once again gone through the material filed on behalf of the
complainant and noted that the respondent is displaying „D.Card (NIMS) & DNB Card
(NIMS)‟ in his prescription pads. The Committee is of the view that the respondent has
not cleared DNB (Cardiology) and even if his contention that he has obtained „D.Card
(NIMS)‟, he is not justified in using either of these Diplomas. The Committee noted that
according to IMC Regulations, 2002 it will be unethical on the part of a Medical
Practitioner to suffix un-recognized degree/diploma to his name in his letter pad,
prescription pad or sign board. During the enquiry it was made clear to the respondent
that „D.Card (NIMS) is an unrecognized diploma and using the same will be an un-ethical
act on any count. The Committee has taken into consideration of the view expressed by
the Complainant that „the respondent should not practice as consultant Cardiologist and
he should not exhibit DNB or DM in any way‟. The Committee has considered the further
statement of the complainant that he has noticed illegal practices done by the respondent
but unable to provide necessary evidence in this regard. After careful consideration of
the material on record and taking into consideration of the observations of E&MPC, the
Executive Committee decided to approve the recommendations of E&MPC and decided
„that the respondent deserve to be warned for his un-ethical acts such as using DNB
(Cardiology) with out possessing the same and displaying „D.Card (NIMS)‟ which is an un-
recognized qualification and admittedly practising in Karimnagar for the past (5) Five
years but got himself registered in APMC for his MBBS as well as MD (General Medicine)
in February, 2009 consequent on registered notice received from the Council‟. The
Executive Committee recommends to the General Body to warn the respondent for his
un-ethical acts noted above.
     Then the Executive Committee considered the observations/recommendations of
E&MPC in Case No. 22/2007 – the complaint made by Sri B.Kishore against Dr.Bachu
Radhakrishna. The Executive Committee noted that the Complaint B.Kishore alleged that
the Respondent has given wrong treatment to his father and put the entire family in
mental agony. The Executive Committee noted that the patient B.Prakash admitted in
Satya Hospital on 23-05-2007 and treated by the Respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna
and operation was done after four days of admission. The patient was discharged on
06.06.2007. Again the patient‟s condition has become serious and was admitted in the
hospital on 08.06.2007 and second operation was done on 13.06.2007. The patient was
discharged on 18.07.2007. As the patient was suffering from serious stomach pain and
went into unconscious condition, on 18.07.2007 he was taken to Kamineni Hospital,
Hyderabad and he was treated for 22 days there and was discharged on 08.08.2007. The
complainant contended that the doctors at Kamineni Hospital expressed the view that the
condition of the patient has worsen due to the negligence of the Respondent. As the
patient was treated by Dr.Jaydip Ray Chaudhuri at Kamineni Hospitals, Hyderabad, he
was requested to offer his explanation as to the treatment given to the patient, B.Prakash
at Kamineni Hospital, Hyderabad. Accordingly, he has filed his reply affidavit and other
material for consideration of the Ethical & Mal-Practices Committee. As per the notice
issued in this regard, he has appeared himself before the Committee on 30.04.2009 and
his statement is on record. The respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna was furnished with
the copy of reply affidavit filed by Dr.Jaydip Ray Chaudhuri, other material and his
statement made before the Committee on 30.04.2009, to enable him to go through the
same and make his defence in the meeting of the Committee held on 26.05.2009.
Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna appeared before the Committee on 26.05.2009 and made the
following statement.
1.     Whether you are accepting the statement and affidavit filed by
       Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhuri? Are you differing the same and if so the
       reasons for the same?
Ans. I am not accepting the statement made by Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhury.
       Here enclosing four sheets to differ.
2.     Whether the patient was discharged in a stable condition?
Ans.   Yes, discharged the patient in stable condition with the post-operative
       wound healed to near normal (less than ¼ Inch raw area present).


3.     Do you have any misunderstanding with the patient or their
       attendants ?
Ans. At the time of discharge patient‟s attendants argued with the hospital
      for the infection and for the bill. The hospital clarified for the infection
      and the bill also reduced to the maximum extent as the hospital
      collected only visiting consultants charges (apart from me seven other
      consultants given their services for the benefit of the patient, with their
      valuable services I could able to discharge the patient in normal
      condition).
4.    Are you satisfied about Surgical Management at the time of Surgery?
Ans. Yes, totally satisfied because surgery was performed with maximum
      aseptic precautions, with vertical laminar air flow was used in the O.T.,
      two Anaesthetists given their services and I performed the procedure
      along with Dr.Kranthi Kumar, M.S. (Ortho.) another competent
      Orthopaedic Surgeon to perform Laminectomy Operation.
5.    What is your final Conclusion regarding this case?
Ans. Sir, as I kept every thing in-front of you please close the file at the
      earliest so that I cannot be disturbed further.


      The Executive Committee noted that the E&MPC has once again gone through the
statement made by Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhuri before the Committee on 30.04.2009 and
noted that on the day of admission, patient was alert, complained of severe abdominal
(lower) pain and had weakness of both lower limbs. He had bowel incontinence.
Investigation reports show: RBS-135, Urea-88 (reative-6 Na-139, K-48, Hb 10.1gm% TLC
7600 Plauleb 1058 lacs, ESR-85 (UE-Puscells-Plenty, RBC+, Alt+). He has stated that
patient did not bring any report with him and investigations conducted at Kamineni
Hospital revealed ARF. Patient had ARF and epidural abscess with high creatinine levels
at admission. Since this issue pertains to Nephrology and Neuro Surgery, he stated that
he is not the correct person to comment about negligence in the case of this patient.

      The Executive Committee noted that the E&MPC has gone through the affidavit
filed by Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhuri and noted that the patient was given treatment at
Kamineni Hospital from 18.07.2007 to 08.08.2007 under his supervision as senior
consultant Neurologist. In the affidavit it was stated that after necessary investigations
like CUE, Creatinine Levels and USG Abdomen, he was diagnosed to have urinary tract
infection, acute renal failure, retention of urine and epidural abscess. It was further
stated that he
recovered and his creatinine levels came down to near normal and he was discharged
when he was ambulant on 08.08.2007.

        The Executive Committee noted that the Ethical & Mal Practices Committee has
gone through the affidavit filed by the respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna, where he
stated that „the patient was recovered, his general condition was good, all vitals were
stable and got full neurological recovery, hypertension was under control, suture lined
healed well as such the patient was discharged from his Hospital on 06-06-2007‟ and
admittedly the patient was taken to Kamineni Hospitals on 18-07-2007, i.e. with a gap of
42 days. As to the allegation of the Complainant that the Respondent has not taken full
care and negligently treated the patient, thereby caused huge financial loss and physical
disability, the E & MPC noted that the Respondent denied the same. After taking into
consideration of the entire material on record, after careful consideration of the Affidavits
filed by Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna, Dr.Jaydip Ray Chaudhury and the statements made by
the parties concerned, the Ethical & Mal Practices Committee observed that „there is no
negligence on the part of Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna in treating the patient B.Prakash. „The
Executive Committee noted that E&MPC has considered the objections raised by the
Respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna before it on 26-5-2009 that he has already
appeared before the committee earlier and his statement is on record. The E&MPC has
noted that he has referred to Rule-6 of APMC Enquiry Rules, 1978. The E&MPC observed
that the respondent has quoted Rule-6 of the Rules erroneously and the said Rule deals
with „the complaint to be reduced to writing and verified by oath or solemn affirmation of
the complainant‟ and further procedure required to be observed by the Committee to
make a preliminary enquiry. The E&MPC noted that according to the proviso given under
Rule 4 (2) of the Rules says that “The Committee appointed to make a preliminary
enquiry shall have power to cause further investigation to be made and take further
evidence and also any legal advice or procure any legal assistance as it may think
necessary”. The E&MPC also observed that his objections are not maintainable in view of
APMC Enquiry Rules, 1978. The Committee is of the opinion that examination of the
Respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna has become necessary in view of the allegations
made by the Complainant that „the patient was admitted in Kamineni Hospital and the
doctors conducted all neurology, nephrology tests and treated him for 22 days and was
discharged on 08-08-2007‟. The Complainant also contended that the doctors at
Kamineni Hospital have stated that the patient‟s condition has become serious as
treatment was not given at an appropriate time by a competent doctor and on account of
negligence. Having considered the complaint and taking into consideration of the fact
that the Patient was treated at Kamineni Hospitals, Hyderabad and the contention of the
Complainant that they had incurred an expenditure of Rs.3,86,600/-, the Committee in its
meeting held on 16-09-2008 has decided to issue notice to Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhury
calling for his explanation as to the treatment given to the patient, Sri B.Prakash at
Kamineni Hospitals, Hyderabad. Accordingly, Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhury has submitted his
reply affidavit and Case-sheet pertaining to the patient. The Committee has examined
him on 30-04-2009.

      After taking into consideration of the observations/recommendations of E & MPC
and on perusal of the entire material on record, it is decided to approve the observation/
recommendation of the E & MPC that „there is no negligence on the part of Dr.Batchu
Radha Krishna in treating the patient B.Prakash‟. The Executive Committee also noted the
objections raised by the Respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna in summoning him 2nd
time by the E&MPC and approved the observations of the Ethical & Mal Practices
Committee that „the examination of Respondent, Dr.Batchu Radhakrishna has become
necessary in view of the allegations made by the complainant that the patient was
admitted in Kamineni Hospital and had been treated there for 22 days under the
supervision of Dr.Jaidip Ray Chadhury and thereby had to incur an expenditure of
Rs.3,86,600/- and was discharged on 08-08-2007 and in view of the contentions raised
by the Complainant that the doctors at Kamineni Hospital had stated that the patient‟s
condition has become serious as treatment was not given at an appropriate time by a
competent doctor and on account of his negligence.‟

     Then    the    Executive   Committee   has   gone   through   the   observations   /
recommendations of the E & MPC in Case No.12/2008, the complaint made by
Mrs.Ramalingeswari Devi against Dr.P.Aruna, Hyderabad. The Executive Committee noted
that the complainant alleged that “After conceiving the pregnancy, she visited Dr.P.Aruna
for consultation and that she used to go every month checkup, she had undergone
scanning on 03-02-2007 at DBR diagnosis, Dilsuknagar, Hyderabad. After completing
8 months, the doctor refused to take up the case until delivery. The reason she said was
that the patient is HBSAg Positive for that, her hospital is not equipped to counter this
problem. Until 8 months doctor said that the Baby‟s condition was good. After 8 months
all the difficulties started”. The EC also noted that the complainant contended that due to
negligence on the part of doctor and diagnosis centre, they lost their baby.              The
Executive Committee has gone through the reply affidavit of the Respondent, Dr.P.Aruna
that „it is not true that the doctor refused to continue on the ground of patient being
HBSAg Positive as alleged by her since the complainant was under her care even after
being detected positive” The Executive Committee has gone through her statement and
noted that „that some congenital anomalies can be picked up at the end of 3rd month and
some at later stage of gestation. IUGR can be picked up only by serial scans done after
six months. As to the question whether it was a fact that she has not taken up the
patient for delivery as the patient was HBSAg Positive, she has stated negatively. As to
further question as to why she has not repeated the ultrasound at the time of last visit of
the patient, i.e. on 05-05-2007, within 32 weeks, she has stated that she would have
repeated the Ultrasound if the patient had reported for her next visit which was
scheduled after 15 days. The Executive Committee noted that as per the direction given
in this regard, Dr.P.Aruna has submitted necessary evidence to the E&MPC to show that
she had taken up HBSAg Positive cases for delivery and cesarean sections. After taking
into consideration of the entire material on record the Executive Committee decided to
approve the observations / recommendations of the E&MPC that „there is no negligence
on the part of Dr.P.Aruna in treating he complainant, Mrs.C.Ramalingeswari Devi‟


      Then the Executive Committee taken up for consideration of the observations/
recommendations of the Ethical & Mal practices Committee in Case no.13/2008 – the
complaint made by Sri Ravinder Dwivedi against Dr.Sunil Kapoor of Care Hospital,
Hyderabad. The Executive Committee noted that the complainant is the head of a Non-
governmental organization and made a complaint to the Minister of State, Home Affairs,
Govt. of India and the said has received several complaints against Care Hospital,
Nampally, Hyderabad. The Complainant alleged that „one by name Laxmi Bai, aged 88
years admitted in Care Hospital on 15-10-2007 and Dr.Sunil Kapoor under whom the
patient admitted did not bother to visit the patient till 16-10-2007. After lot of efforts, the
attendant, Mr. Sham met Dr.Sunil Kapoor and he told him that patient‟s respiratory
system completely collapsed for that he asked him to deposit Rs.1,00,000/- and then only
he will start treatment. The complainant Mr.Shyam asked about the type of Medical
Prescription, the respondent became angry and abused him and filthy language and
warned to take his patient back and prepared a false discharged report and bill for an
amount of Rs.13,892/-. The complainant further contended that lastly relatives of the
patient shifted her to Woodland Hospital where proper care and attention was paid by

Committee for conducting surprise visits / checks by various small teams with two
or three members of the Council / Committees on hospitals / clinics run by un-
qualified persons is finalized the same will be incorporated in the Counter affidavit

       In this regard, members are of the opinion that unless the High Court
directs in this regard or the Government issues notification under 20 (ii) of
A.P.Medical Practitioners Registration Act, 1968 and there by authorizes the
Council to inspect the hospitals / clinics run by RMPs / PMPs and other un-qualified

Council can inspect the premises of any hospital / dispensary / clinic run by
qualified doctors. In this regard, members have gone through the under the
provisions of Section 26 (2) of Andhra Pradesh Medical Practitioners Registration
Act, 1968 and noted that “In holding enquires under this Act, the Council or its
Committee shall have the same powers as are vested in the civil courts under the
Code of Civil Proceedure, 1908, when trying a suit, in respect of the following
matters, namely:-
       a) enforcing the attendance of any person and examining him on oath;
     (b) compelling the production of documents;
     (c) issuing of commissions for the examination of witnesses.

       The Executive Committee is of the opinion that detailed examination of
provisions of the Act, the rules made thereunder and the implications of the same
are to be ascertained as to whether the Council or its Committee or the proposed
small teams have the power to inspect the hospitals of any doctors when
   complaints received such as (i) hospital is ill-equipped resulting into the death of a
   patient on account of in-adequate facilities which are expected to be available in
   Hospitals like Super Speciality/Multi Speciality, (ii) doctors are practising as
   specialists,   such   as    Orthopedic   Surgeons   while   having   primary   medical
   qualification, (iii) doctors running maternity nursing home by appointing non-
   medical practitioners and causing danger to the lives of pregnant women and
   sucking the blood of the poor; the doctor is running an un-authorized dispensary
   without authorized Gynecologist, if the Council inspect the said premises, it will be
   patent on the face of it.

          In view of the above, the Executive Committee directed to come with
   detailed proposals with all possibilities for conducting joint inspection by small
   teams appointed by the Council which shall carry on inspections in co-ordination
   with CME Committee, Ethical & Mal-Practices Committee and Legal & Anti-
   quackery Committee.

   Council before the Hon‟ble High Court of Andhra Pradesh and also to the State
   Government.

names of persons who are working as Compounders have been furnished to the
DM&HO. X-Ray Machine is there and has been in use but for the past several
years there had been no qualified paramedical staff. Scanning Machine is there
and Scanning has been done by the doctor for several patients. The Respondent
has permitted Sri Atukuri Mallikharjuna Rao to run Medical Shop and there is
no Pharmacist. The Complainant has further contended that the Respondent is
dispensing medicines without proper accounts and records and the complainant
is having sufficient evidence to prove the same. A complaint was also lodged

Hospital, Guntur on 19.10.2007 but not in his nursing home as alleged.
      He has stated that his Nursing Home is situated at a corner of a village
and the medical shops in the village are at far away place to his nursing home
and in these circumstances, he faced lot of problems in the course of treatment
and hence dispensed the required drugs to his patients only. He has contended
that as a doctor, he is exempted from taking drug license as per the provisions of
Drugs and Cosmetics Act and Rules, u/s K (5) of the Act to dispense the drugs
to his patients and as such he never violated any rules or laws for the time being
in force.
   As to the further allegation, he has stated that he has paid Turn Over Tax to
CTO Chilakaluripeta under protest. He has contended that he has dispensed the
medicines to his patients only on no profit – no loss basis, as per the direction of
the CTO, Chilakaluripeta he has paid Rs.34,860/- whereas the actual tax was

applied for Registration of his Nursing Home also. He contended that he is not at
fault. The respondent has stated that the complainant is harassing and
threatening the officers to take action against him though there is no fault from
his side. He contended that the complainant is a habitual petition-monger.

        The respondent contended that the complainant has simply avoided
facing the Enquiry Officer and willfully abstained and leveling allegations against
the DM&HO. He has also contended that the contents of complaint will prove his
habit of blaming each and every official and it carries a reflection of his
Psychological state of mind. With regard to the allegation about the nurses and
compounders he has stated that his nursing home is small one and he is only a
graduate. Majority of the patients will go either to Guntur or to Chilakaluripeta.
He has stated that he personally attend those few patients who will come to him.
The income is meager. Trained nurses and compounders are not readily
available as his income is small and the village is small. He has stated that he
has engaged one MPHW and still in search of qualified person and three women
possessing GNM qualification will come to work in his Nursing Home from
January, 2009. He contended that they will assist him but won’t extend their
services to the patients. With regard to the X-Ray Plant, he has stated that the
same is run by an independent technician and he is a qualified one. He is
running his Laboratory in a room taken on rental basis and the respondent is
not concerned with the same. With regard to Ultra Sound Scanning machine, he
has stated that he is qualified and obtained permission from DM&HO, Guntur as
required under law. He has stated that he is not concerned with the Medical
Shop and the Medical Shop owner obtained Drug License from the concerned
Inspector of Drugs and is running the shop independently.

       With regard to the press clipping of Andhra Jyothi dated 15-09-2008, he
has stated that the allegation is totally false and he never used to draw blood in
his nursing home. He contended that the paper clipping and the photo goes to
show that it was snapped un-noticedly without anybody’s permission. The
picture in the photograph is the laboratory of Dodda Mohan Gandhi who is
owner of it. The X-ray plant can also be seen in the photograph and the
respondent is not concerned with the laboratory and its maintenance. He has
further stated that he came to know that no drawal of blood took place as
alleged and the technician Mohan Gandhi stated that whenever a patient is
unable to step on to the table for X-ray, somebody will help him; this photograph

Committee in its meeting held on 30.04.2009 taking into consideration of the entire
material on record and the statements made by the parties concerned has made its
detailed observations/recommendations extracted below:

      “As per the statement made before the Committee, the Complainant, Sri
B.Venkateswara Reddy filed an affidavit and other documents on 22.10.2008. The same
was considered by the Committee in its meeting held on 26.10.2008. The Committee
noted that others Respondents, Dr.Ravi Shankar, Dr.Radha Sagar and Dr.G.Lakshmana
Sastry have filed their reply affidavits. As it requires lot of time for going through the
material, it is decided to take this case in the next meeting of E&MPC.

      In his affidavit the complainant, Sri B.Venkateswara Reddy has reiterated the
statement made by him in his complaint dt: 13.12.2007, but made certain fresh
allegations. He has stated that as per the advise of doctors of Kamineni Hospital, i.e.
Dr.Ravi Shankar, my father was under gone several tests like X-Ray, Endoscopy,
Ultrasonography, abdomen (male) Radiologist diagnosis tests, CT Abdomen, Rectal I.V.
Contrast, Gastroenterology, (colonoscopy), pathological and clinical tests conducted
23.06.2003. I and my brother discussed with Dr.B.Ravi Shankar and got opined that the
Dr.Ravi Shankar could not arrive to conclusion regarding the patient real problem even
after conducting several above tests in past 2 days. Dr.B.Ravi Shankar assured that there
is no seriousness to patient and it can be treated with either Chemotherapy or
Radiotherapy rather than to go for surgery. He contended that Dr.B.Ravi Shankar created
false hopes and did not reveal to the complainant about the condition of the patient.
Dr.B.Ravi Shankar has changed his versions on 26.06.2003 and advised to go for surgery
for my father, because the patient condition was not normal. Dr.B.Ravishankar further
demanded a huge amount of Rs.70,000/- for the treatment of my father. As per the
advice of the doctor, my father was admitted in to Kamineni Hospital as in-patient, on
30.06.2003. The patient underwent several clinical tests besides several pathological tests
also repeatedly. The Doctors of Kamineni Hospital told that the patient would require
huge quantity of blood at the time of operation. Accordingly, the complainant arranged
the blood required and while the patient was undergoing the operation, again they
required blood arranged by me as per direction of Doctors. The complainant submitted
that after the surgery, the patient kept in acute medical care unit/post operative ward
and neither mine nor other attendants were allowed to see the condition of the patient
after the surgery. I submit that Dr.G.Satyanarayana expressed his doubt about the
possibilities of some other problems like leakages in stomach, while sending the patient
into AMC Unit / PO Ward and the doctor did not explain the actual condition of the
patient and actual surgery what was done. The complainant contended that he was told
different versions and created false hopes by the Respondents individually and he got
illusion regarding the surgery what was done. He further alleged that the doctors of
Kamineni Hospital failed to arrive at correct decision about the final diagnosis and they
were in dilemma regarding TUBERCULOSIS or CROHNS DISCEASE, but he was told that
they conducted operation to the patient for CARCINOMA ASSENDING COLON
PERITONITIS. The patient expired on 07.07.2003 at about 08.30 pm i.e. 5 th post
operative day and according to discharge summary it reveals that date of operation
conducted on 05.07.2003. He contended that he was unable to find the circumstances
and possibilities of versions of doctors, which are different. He has stated that the
patient‟s condition was declared normal on 1st & 2nd postoperative days, but surprisingly
on 3rd postoperative day, the opposite party revealed that there was a leak from the
ANASTOMOTIC site causing secondary peritonitis and septicemia was suspected. The
complainant contended that the condition happened to the patient / deceased was due to
negligence of doctors in rendering service to the patient during that time. Simultaneously,
the patient was taken for REXPLORATIN and then the observation was that 1 ½ lts. of
foul smelling straw-coloured fluid in the peritoneal cavity, by Dr.Satyanarayana and
Dr.Laxmana Sastry. The complainant contended that this condition was developed purely
because of infection while the surgery was done and there was no proper care and
hygienic mechanism was not observed and they came to the conclusion that due to this
the patient‟s condition was turned to the death side.

      The complainant further contended that the stand taken by Dr.G.Satyanarayana
and Dr.B.Ravi Shankar regarding his father‟s illness put up before the Tumour Board for
discussions regarding Tumour Cases is belated and denied. It can be seen from the
Tumour Board meeting register 2003, the case has been put up for discussion on 31 st
June, 2003. But the month of June does not 31 days. Description of the patient has been
stated as Female.

      He    contended     that   all   documents    prepared    by   Kamineni     Hospital,
Dr.G.Satyanarayana and Dr.Ravi Shankar are to over come their negligence during the
course of treatment of his father and for the purpose of misleading the courts.
      The Ethical & Mal-Practices Committee in its meeting held on 23.12.2008 has
considered this case and noted that the other three doctors, viz. Dr.G.Laxmana Sastry,
Dr.S. Radha and Dr.B.Ravishankar have filed their affidavits as directed in this behalf.
The Ethical Committee noted that “the complainant has filed additional affidavit and other
material containing 229 pages. The E&MPC observed that some of the material papers
filed by the complainant do not constitute any evidence required in this case and even if
the material gives any substantial evidence to prove the case of the complainant and
shows that the respondent doctors are guilty of negligence, it has to be established by
the complainant himself. In these circumstances and in the absence of any evidence
produced by the complainant as to the order passed by the Consumer Disputes Redressal
Forum, R.R.Dist and in view of the voluminous material filed by the Complainant for
examination of which, it has taken lot of time for the Committee to consider the matter.

      The E&MPC has gone through the affidavits filed by Dr.S.Radha, Pathologist,
Dr.G.Laxmana Sastry and B.Ravi Shankar, Medical Gastro Enterologist. The committee
noted that Dr.S.Radha has stated that she is not concerned with any of the allegations
made in the complaint except with regard to the proceedings took place before the tumor
board on 01.07.2003 since she was one of the participant in the Tumour Board meeting.
She has also stated that to the best of her knowledge and memory, the case of Utham
Reddy was discussed before the Tumour Board that he was suffering with CARCINOMA
COLON and they explored various options of treatment and risk complications involved in
the treatment and finally the participants concluded that firstly the malignant tumour
(mass) has to be removed through surgical intervention and there after the patient will
be treated either Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy or both depending upon the
circumstances of the patient.

      The committee noted that, Dr.G.Laxmana Sastry in his affidavit has stated that he
is not aware of the allegations made in the complaint or not concerned with them except
with regard to the proceedings took place before the Tumour Board on 01.07.2003 since
he was one of the participants in the Tumour Board meeting. He has stated that his
name was routinely mentioned in the discharge summary as he was one of the
consultants in the Department of General Surgery, Kamineni Hospital, L.B.Nagar. He has
further stated that the complaint is misconceived and vexatious in nature and appears
that the complaint has been filed with a malafide intention to black mail and harass
doctors. He contended that complaint of this nature will cause great mental agony and
the doctors and their families will be put to great loss and damage and financial loss.

      The Committee has gone through the affidavit filed by Dr.B.Ravi Shankar, Medical
Gastro-enterologist and noted that he has stated that Late B.Utham Reddy had
approached Kamineni Hospitals on 23-06-2003 and was seen as out patient with the
complaints of altered bowel habits, dyspepsia, anorexia and weight loss and he
underwent tests such as ultra-sonography, C.T.Scan of abdomen and colonoscopy (done
on 24-06-2003), revealed a large growth involving ascending colon and proximal
transverse colon. As colonoscopy alone cannot confirm malignancy, biopsy of the lesion
was also performed and the report had come on 26-06-2003. Biopsy of the lesion was
suggestive of Adenocarcinoma, thereby confirming colonic cancer. The Committee has
gone through his further statement that the patient as well as his attendants were
informed on 27-06-2003 regarding the diagnosis of cancer. Patient was suggested to get
admitted to the hospital as surgery was required for treatment of colon cancer. He was
admitted on 30-06-2003 and operated on 02-07-2003. He expired on 07-07-2003 due to
the complications of cancer. The operation was performed by Dr.Satyanarayana and his
team. Dr.Ravi Shankar has further stated that his job as Medical Gastro-enterologist was
limited to evaluation, workup and colonoscopy including biopsy. He has stated that the
allegation of the complainant that he has not helped him procuring the case sheet and
other bills is totally false. The mistakes of date and sex probably are simple clerical
errors and totally unrelated to the management of patient.

      After going through the complaint made by Sri B.Venkateswara Reddy dt.13-12-
2007, his statement made before the Committee on 16-09-2008 his further affidavit
dated 21-10-2008 the affidavits filed by Dr.G.Satyanarayana, Dr.B.Ravi Shankar and
others, the statements of Dr.G.Satyanarayana & Dr.N.Eshwar Chandra and other material
on record and after detailed discussion, the Committee came to the conclusion that there
was no negligence on the part of          Dr.G.Satyanarayana, Dr.N.Eshwar Chandra or
Dr.B.Ravi Shankar. The E&MPC is of the opinion that there was no role of Dr.G.Laxmana
Sastry, Dr.S. Radha and Dr.M.Srinivas. They were participants in the tumour board
meeting held on 01-07-2003. The Committee is of the opinion that “the mistake of date
of Tumour Board meeting as 31-06-2003 and the sex of patient as Female are clerical
errors and totally unrelated to the management of the patient. With regard to the further
allegation of the complainant that two different death summaries issued to him, wherein
in one death summary the Principal Diagnosis was mentioned as Carcinoma Ascending
Peritonitis + and in the second one the Principal Diagnosis was mentioned as Carcinoma
Ascending Colon Peritonitis + Septicemic Shock, the committee has taken into
consideration of the statement of Dr.G.Satyanarayana that the death summary bearing
„District Forum, Ranga Reddy District‟ was issued by him and correct one and the other
death ceremony bearing the „ Kamineni Hospitals‟ stamp was not issued by him. The
committee has also taken into consideration of the statement of Dr.G.Satyanarayana that
the signature appeared in that death summary is not his own”.

   In the above circumstances, the E&MPC came to the conclusion that the allegations
made by the complainant, Sri B.Venkateswar Reddy are not proved against any of the
above mentioned doctors and the cause of death was Septicaemia. The             E&MPC has
taken into consideration of the statement made by Dr.G.Satyanarayana before the
committee on 16.09.2008 as to which was the cause of death, he has stated that it is not
iatrogenic the disease process i.e. Ca. ascending colon which has caused obstruction and
has spread beyond the boundaries of the colon has required extensive dissection and
resection of the bowl leading to the post-operative complication of peritonitis which is a
known complication that has resulted in Septicaemia which is ultimately responsible for
the death inspite of all the feasible measures taken by the treating doctors. The E&MPC
has also taking into consideration of the statement that „the death was not directly
caused by the Carcinoma which was the ultimate cause of death has resulted as a result
of peritonitis which was developed as a known complication of the extensive dissection
and resection that was required for the surgical treatment of the carcinoma‟.

      The General Body noted that the Executive Committee in its meeting held on
20.05.2009 has considered this item and approved the observations/recommendations of
the E&MPC.

   The General Body taking into consideration of the observations/recommendations of
the E&MPC as approved by the Executive Committee has decided that the allegations
made by the complainant, Sri B.Venkateswara Reddy are not proved against any of the
respondents and the cause of death was Septicemia. The ultimate cause of death has
resulted as a result of peritonitis which was developed as a known complication of the
extensive dissection and resection that was required for the surgical treatment of the
carcinoma.

      The General Body noted that the E&MPC considered other cases and decided to take
up the same in the next meeting for further consideration. The General Body after taking
into consideration of the minutes of the meeting of the E&MPC dt:30.04.2009 and the
decisions taken by the Executive Committee in its meeting held on 20.05.2009 has
decided to approve the same.

(C )     Then the General Body has taken up for consideration of minutes of the meeting
of E&MPC dt:26.05.2009. The General Body noted that the E&MPC has recorded the
statement of the respondent Dr.Bachu Radha Krishna and the same is on record. The
E&MPC has also recorded the statements of the complainant and the respondent in Case
No.12/2008. The E&MPC has recorded the statements of the respondents in Case Nos.
13/2008, 19/2008 and the statements of parties concerned in Case No.24/2008. The
General      Body     noted     that     the   E&MPC      has    not    made     specific
observations/recommendations in any case. The General Body noted that the minutes of
the E&MPC were placed before the Executive Committee in its meeting held on
01.07.2009 and approved the same.

         After careful consideration and detailed discussion it is decided to approve the
minutes of the E&MPC meeting dt:26.05.2009.

(D)      Then the General Body has taken up for consideration of minutes of the meeting
of E&MPC dt:26.06.2009.


         The General Body noted that the E&MPC recorded the statement of the
respondent Dr.G.Subba Rao in Case No.17/2008 and the respondent Dr.V.V.Reddy in
Case No.18/2008. The General Body noted that in Case No.18/2008, the complainant, Sri
M.G.Ramulu Yadav has submitted an application to the Committee seeking permission of
the Council to withdraw the complaint.
         The General Body also noted that the parties concerned in Case No.20/2008 and
Case No.21/2008 have appeared before the E&MPC and their statements are on record.

      The General Body noted that the E&MPC has made detailed observations /
recommendations in Case No.08/2008, 12/2008, 13/2008, 24/2008 & 22/2007. The
detailed observations/recommendations together with the statements made by parties
concerned in other cases were considered by the Executive Committee in its meeting held
on 01.07.2009. The Executive Committee after careful consideration of the material
placed before it and taking into consideration of the observations/recommendations of
the E&MPC has decided to approve the same. However, in Case No.08/2008, the
Executive Committee in its meeting held on 28.07.2009 has observed that the respondent
Dr.Thumu Rama Krishna has stated that „they could not record the resuscitative
measures as they were very hurry to save the patient and shifted the patient to another
hospital and meantime the patients attendants threatened the nursing staff and taken
away the case sheet without any permission‟. The Executive Committee taking into
consideration of the same, decided that the Respondent Dr.Thumu Rama Krishna be
warned for not maintaining proper records.

      The General Body has considered the entire material on record together with the
statements made by the parties concerned,the observations/recommendations of the
Ethical &
Mal-Practices Committee and decision of the Executive Committee. The General Body
had detailed discussion on this item. Dr.P.Sucharitha Murthy, Ex-officio Member
expressed the view that the respondent should not give any publicity in future and in
case if he do so his name shall be removed from the Medical Register. She has also
expressed the view that why the respondent has not registered this case as „MLC Case„.
Dr.E.Ravinder Reddy speaking on the occasion expressed the view that it is the
responsibility of the Hospital management for registration of the case under MLC.
Dr.B.Raj Siddharth expressed the view that we can not come to any conclusion binding
ourselves on the allegations made by the complainants if the E&MPC finds any negligence
on the part of treating doctor and if the E&MPC finds the doctor concerned guilty of
negligence, then the respondent doctor is liable for punishment for the allegations of
negligence. He has pointed out that there are several lapses on the part of the
respondent i.e.
      (i) MLC Case was not registered by the Hospital Management.
      (ii)    The case-sheet was not maintained properly.
      (iii)   Death Certificate was not submitted either by the complainant or
              respondent.
   Dr.P.Vijay Chander Reddy, Chairman E&MPC while explaining case in detail has
   expressed the view that the E&MPC made its recommendations on the following
   points:
   (i) On the treatment part, (ii) Non maintenance of records, (iii) Giving wide publicity
      Dr.Ramesh Reddy, Member while speaking on the occasion has expressed the
view that the respondent doctor has violated the regulations made under IMC Act, such
as not maintaining proper records and giving wide publicity. He has expressed the view
that if he is found giving advertisements in future glorifying his personal image, then his
name should be removed from the Medical Register as per IMC Regulations 2002.


   The General Body taking into consideration of the observations/recommendations of
E&MPC and the decision taken by the Executive Committee and after detailed discussion
has decided to impose “Censure” on the respondent Dr.Thumu Rama Krishna for the
foregoing reasons and the lapses committed by him. It is also decided to record the
“Censure” in the Medical Register. It is also decided that if the respondent doctor is found
giving advertisements in future, his name will be removed from Medical Register treating
such an act as professional mis-conduct on his part.

   Then the General Body has gone through the observations/recommendations of
E&MPC in Case No.22/2007- the Complaint made by Sri B.Kishore against Dr.Bachu
Radha Krishna.


      The General Body has noted that the complainant Sri B.Kishore alleged that “the
respondent has given wrong treatment to his father and put the entire family in mental
agony”. The respondent filed his reply affidavit denying the allegations made by the
complainant against him. Both the parties appeared before the E&MPC on 16-09-2009
and their statements are on record. As per the contentions raised by the complainant
that the patient was admitted in Kamineni Hospital and the doctors at Kamineni Hospital
have treated the patient, notice was issued to Dr.Jaidip Ray Chaudhury to submit his
explanation as to the treatment given by him. Accordingly, Dr.Jaidip Ray Chaudhury
submitted his reply affidavit. As per the notice issued in this regard, he has appeared
before the E & MPC and his statement is on record. As per the affidavit filed by Dr.Jaidip
Ray Chaudhury and his statement before the Ethical & Mal Practices Committee on 30-
04-2009, it has become necessary to direct the Respondent, Dr.Bachu Radha Krishna to
appear before the E & MPC. Accordingly, he appeared before the E & MPC on 26-05-2009
and his statement is on record.

      Taking into consideration of the entire material on record together with the
statements made by the parties concerned, the E & MPC made the following
observations:

      “The E & MPC has gone through the Statement made by Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhuri
before the Committee on 30.04.2009 and noted that on the day of admission, patient
was alert, complaint of severe abdominal (lower) pain and had weakness of both lower
limbs. He had bowel incontinence. Investigation reports show: RBS-135, Urea-88
(reative-6 Na-139, K-48, Hb 10.1gm% TLC 7600 Plauleb 1058 lack, EST-85 (UE-Puscells-
Plenty, RBC+, Alt+). He has stated that patient did not bring any report with him and
investigations conducted at Kamineni Hospital revealed ARF. Patient had ARF and
epidural absean with high creatinine levels at admission. Since this issue pertains to
Nephrology and Neuro Surgery, he stated that he is not the correct person to comment
about negligence in this patient.

      The Committee has gone through the affidavit filed by Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhuri
and noted that the patient was given treatment at Kamineni Hospital from 18.07.2007 to
08.08.2007 under his supervision as senior consultant Neurologist. In the affidavit it was
stated that after necessary investigations like CUE, Creatinine Levels and USG Abdomen,
he was diagnosed to have urinary tract infection, acute renal failure, retention of urine
and epidural abscess. It was further stated that he recovered and his creatinine levels
came down to near normal and he was discharged when he was ambulant on
08.08.2007.
      The Ethical & Mal Practices Committee noted that the Respondent, Dr.Batchu
Radha Krishna, in his reply Affidavit dated 18-7-2008 has stated that „the patient
recovered, his general condition was good, all vitals were stable and got full neurological
recovery, hypertension was under control, suture lined healed well as such the patient
was discharged from his Hospital on 6-6-2007‟ and admittedly the patient was taken to
Kamineni Hospitals on 18-07-2007, i.e. with a gap of 42 days. As to the allegation of the
Complainant that the Respondent has not taken full care and negligently treated the
patient, thereby caused huge financial loss and physical disability, the E & MPC noted
that the Respondent denied the same. After taking into consideration of the entire
material on record, after careful consideration of the Affidavits filed by Dr.Batchu Radha
Krishna, Dr.Jaydip Ray Chaudhury and the statements made by the parties concerned,
the Ethical & Mal Practices Committee observes that there is no negligence on the part of
Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna in treating the patient B.Prakash. The E & MPC has considered
the objections raised by the Respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna before the Committee
on 26-5-2009 that he has already appeared before the committee earlier and his
statement is on record. The committee has also noted that he has referred to Rule-6 of
APMC Enquiry Rules, 1978. The E & MPC observed that the respondent has quoted Rule-
6 of the Rules erroneously. The E & MPC also noted that according to the proviso given
under Rule 4 (2) of the Rules says that “The Committee appointed to make a preliminary
enquiry shall have power to cause further investigation to be made and take further
evidence and also any legal advice or procure any legal assistance as it may think
necessary”.The E & MPC observed that objections raised by the Respondent, Dr.Bachu
Radha Krishna are not maintainable in view of APMC Enquiry Rules, 1978. The E & MPC is
of the opinion that examination of the Respondent, Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna has become
necessary in view of the allegations made by the Complainant that „the patient was
admitted in Kamineni Hospital and the doctors conducted all neurology, nephrology tests
and treated him for 22 days and was discharged on 08-08-2007‟. The Complainant also
contended that the doctors at Kamineni Hospital have stated that the patient‟s condition
has become serious as treatment was not given at an appropriate time by a competent
doctor and on account of negligence. Having considered the complaint and taking into
consideration of the fact that the Patient was treated at Kamineni Hospitals, Hyderabad
and the contention of the Complainant that they had incurred an expenditure of
Rs.3,86,600/-, the E&MPC in its meeting held on 16-09-2008 has decided to issue notice
to Dr.Jay Dip Ray Chaudhury calling for his explanation as to the treatment given to the
patient, Sri B.Prakash at Kamineni Hospitals, Hyderabad. Accordingly, Dr. Jay Dip Ray
Chaudhury has submitted his reply affidavit and Case-sheet pertaining to the patient “.
       The E&MPC taking into consideration of the entire material on record and after
detailed discussion came to the conclusion that „there is no negligence on the part of
Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna in treating the patient, Sri B.Prakash at Satya Hospital,
Warangal. The objections raised by Dr.Bachu Radha Krishna in directing him to appear
before the Committee are not maintainable in view of the provisions contained in Rule-6
of APMC Enquiry Rules, 1978”
      The Executive Committee in its meeting held on 01.07.2009 has approved the
observations / recommendations of the E&MPC.

      The General Body taking into consideration of the entire material on record
together with the statements made by the parties concerned and after detailed discussion
is of the opinion that „there is no negligence on the part of Dr.Batchu Radha Krishna in
treating the patient, Sri B.Prakash at Satya Hospital, Warangal. The objections raised by
Dr.Bachu Radha Krishna in directing him to appear before the Committee are not
maintainable in view of the provisions contained in Rule-6 of APMC Enquiry Rules, 1978‟.

     Then the General Body has taken up for consideration of the observations
/ recommendations of Ethical & Mal Practices Committee in Case No.24/2008
– the Complaint made by Dr.Kylas Pabba against Dr.A.Sai Ravi Shankar. The
General Body has gone through observations / recommendations of E& MP C
and noted that the            Complainant, Dr.Kylas Pabba in his complaint
dt:16.12.2008 has alleged that the Respondent doctor has done PDDC at NIMS
from 28.02.2001 to 27.02.2003 and prior to that he took DNB Training for few
months. He has alleged that he is practicing as consultant Cardiologist for the
last 5 ½ years at Karimnagar (formerly in First Medical Hospitals, now in
Shivaram Hospitals) with the following degrees.
     1. M.D. (Med.) DNB (Tr.), D.Card. (NIMS), 2) M.D. (Med.) (DNB Tr.),
        D.Card. (NIMS).
     3. M.D. (Med.) DNB Card (NIMS) (In the middle), 4) M.D.(Med.) (DNB
     Tr.),
        D.Card,(NIMS) once again.

      The Complainant has requested for verification of degrees of the
respondent and instruct him to explain the way in which he is utilizing DNB
Degree and D.Card and how he can occupy the position of consultant
cardiologist and to work as an independent cardiologist in such a hospital.
      The Respondent, Dr.A.Sai Ravi Shanker was requested to submit his
explanation on the allegations made by the complainant against him. He has
filed his reply affidavit duly denying the allegations.
      As per the summons issued in this regard, both the parties appeared before the
E&MPC on 26.05.2009. The E & MPC put certain questions to the Complainant. The E &
MPC desired to know about his main allegation. The Complainant has stated that his main
allegation is that Dr.A.Sai Ravi Shankar does not have valid Degree to be called as
Consultant Cardiologist. He has not qualified in DNB Cardiology or DM Cardiology. So he
should not practice as Consultant Cardiologist and he should not exhibit DNB or DM in
any way. The Complainant has enclosed four prescriptions which were prescribed and
signed by the Respondent and contended that the Respondent has misrepresented his
degrees in the prescriptions which he has furnished to the E & MPC. As to the further
question, what was his objection regarding Registration of the Respondent, he has stated
that your objection regarding registration of Dr.Sai Ravi Shankar, he has stated that he
got himself registered in APMC on 20-02-2009 for his MBBS & MD degrees only. The
Complainant contended that as per the affidavit, he is practising at Karimnagar in Andhra
Pradesh for the last six (6) years without registering himself in APMC and he has
registered himself after receiving notice from APMC. The Committee has questioned him
whether he found the respondent guilty of un-ethical practice. He has replied that the
Respondent‟s practising capability of Cardiology is not upto the mark and he observed the
same with many patients, but stated that getting all these details is not possible now.
The complainant has stated that he has registered with APMC for his MD & DM degrees
with Certificate No.12604. He has also stated that he has noticed un-ethical practice of
the Respondent, but unable to produce any evidence to that effect. As to the further
question, what made him to complain to APMC, he has stated that patients are getting
confused and the doctors also getting confused with the degrees of the Respondent. He
intends to bring this to the notice of the Council purely to see that patients will not be
affected and patients should get proper treatment and proper advice, by properly
qualified Cardiologist.

       The E&MPC has recorded the statement of the Respondent and noted
that he underwent training in DNB in Cardiology at Apollo Hospital and he has
completed his MD from SCB Medical College, Cuttack which is recognised by
MCI. He has registered himself with APMC in the month of February, 2009. As
he has registered in Orissa, he did not know that he has to register again in
Andhra Pradesh. As to the question whether the Respondent is publishing his
degrees in press, he has stated that on his behalf his well-wisher given the
publication, but the degrees which they have published is fault on the part of
press people, for which the press has given corrigendum on next day it self.
He was asked to say any thing more and he replied that due to his ignorance
he has displayed DNB (Tr.,) which is not recognised. He has also stated that he
is not aware that DNB Cardiology should not be displayed and prayed that he
may be pardoned for any of my lapses due to my ignorance.
      The E&MPC has noted that the respondent has expressed his ignorance
and stated that he was under the impression that he is entitled to display DNB
Cardiology. The E & MPC       observed that Dr.Sai Ravi Shanker got himself
registered with Andhra Pradesh Medical Council in the month of February,
2009 whereas he is practising in Karimnagar for the past 5 years which is
contrary   to   the   provisions   of   Andhra   Pradesh   Medical   Practitioners
Registration Act, 1968. The Committee felt that his statement that „he
registered in Orissa and he does not know that he has to register again in
Andhra Pradesh‟ is not convincing. After taking into consideration of entire
material on record and the statements made by the parties concerned, the
Ethical & Malpractices Committee observed that the acts of the Respondent,
Dr.Sai Ravi Shankar are not in conformity with the IMC Regulations, 2002. The
E & MPC has gone through the material filed on behalf of the complainant and
noted that the respondent is displaying „D.Card (NIMS) & DNB Card (NIMS)‟ in
his prescription pads. The E & MPC is of the view that the respondent has not
cleared DNB (Cardiology) and even if his contention that he has obtained
„D.Card (NIMS)‟, he is not justified in using either of these Diplomas. The
Committee noted that according to IMC Regulations- 2002, it will be unethical
on the part of a Medical Practitioner to suffix un-recognized degree/diploma
to his name in his letter pad, prescription pad or sign board. During the
enquiry it was made clear to the respondent that „D.Card (NIMS) is an
unrecognized diploma and using the same will be an un-ethical act on any
count. The E & MPC has taken into consideration of the view expressed by the
Complainant that „the respondent should not practice as consultant
Cardiologist and he should not exhibit DNB or DM in any way‟. The E & MPC
has considered the further statement of the complainant that he has noticed
illegal practices done by the respondent but unable to provide necessary
evidence in this regard.
      In view of the above observations and taking into consideration of the
view expressed by the complainant that he has no personal rivalry or jealousy
on the practice of the respondent, it is decided that the respondent deserve to
be warned for his un-ethical acts such as using DNB (Cardiology) with out
possessing the same and displaying „D.Card (NIMS)‟ which is an un-recognized
qualification and admittedly practising in Karimnagar for the past (5) Five
years but got himself registered in APMC for his MBBS as well as MD (General
Medicine) in February, 2009 consequent on registered notice received from
the Council and recommended to the Executive Committee accordingly for
taking necessary decision in this regard.
      The Executive Committee in its meeting held on 01-07-2009 has decided
that „the Respondent deserve to be warned for his un-ethical acts such as
using DNB (Cardiology) with out possessing the same and displaying „D.Card
(NIMS) which is un-recognised qualification and admittedly practising in
Karimnagar for the past five year but got himself registered in APMC for his
MBBS as well as MD (General Medicine) in February 2009 consequent on
registered notice received from the Council‟
      The General Body perused the entire record and gone through the
statements made by the parties concerned. The General Body has wider
discussion on this item.
       Dr.K.Ramesh Reddy, Member speaking on the occasion has expressed
the view that „the Respondent has not registered in APMC. His act attracts the
provisions of Section-20 of A.P.Medical Practitioners Registration Act-1968
according to which “not withstanding anything to the contrary in any other
law for the time being in force, no person other than a registered practitioner
shall, without the previous sanction of the Government be competent to hold
any appointment as Physician, surgeon or other medical officer in any
approved institution which is supported wholly or partly out of the funds of
the State or the fund of a local authority, no certificate required by law to be
given by a medical practitioner shall be valid unless signed by a registered
practitioner” and that he is not having sufficient recognised qualification to
practice as a Cardiologist and hence he should be punished.
      Dr.E.Ravinder Reddy, Member, speaking on the occasion has expressed
that “Censure” be imposed on the Respondent for his lapses and the un-ethical
acts in which he had been indulged.
       Dr.P.Sucharitha Murthy, Ex-officio Member expressed the view that
there should be strong message go to other doctors who are indulged in such
un-ethical acts and thus violating the provisions of Code of Medical Ethics
prescribed by the Medical Council of India as notified in IMC Regulations,
2002. Dr.Hanumanlu, Joint Director Health, representing the Ex-Officio
member of the Council (Director of Health) has expressed the view that
“Censure” be imposed on the Respondent for his lapses and the un-ethical acts
in which he had been indulged.
       Dr.T.Ravi Raju, Director of Medical Education and Ex-officio Member
expressed the same view. Dr.G.Balamaddaiah, Dr.V.Ram Prasad, Dr.S.Srinivasa
Reddy, members speaking on the occasion have expressed the view that the
name of the respondent be removed from the Medical Register for a period of
three months for the un-ethical acts committed by the respondent, Dr.A.Sai
Ravi    Shankar.    Dr.K.L.Sampath      Kumar,      Vice-Chairman,      Dr.N.Kishore,
Dr.E.Ravinder Reddy and Dr.P.Sucharitha Murthy expressed the view that
“Censure” be imposed on the Respondent for his lapses and the un-ethical acts
in which he had been indulged.
       Dr.G.Balamaddaiah     participating    the   discussion   once     again   has
expressed his further view that censure be imposed and the same will be
notified in press. Dr.K.Ramesh Reddy intervening with the views expressed by
the other members have expressed that „ignorance is also a wrong‟.
Dr.P.Sucharitha Murthy expressed her further view that there shall be
preventive measures taken through Indian Medical Association. Dr.N.Kishore
expressed his further view and stated that „some doctors are ignorant – we
should take action against the erring doctors against whom complaints are
received.‟
       The General Body came to the conclusion that it is necessary to suspend
respondent doctors against whom complaints are received for practicing in-
completed PG Degrees/PG Diplomas while displaying as suffix to their names
such PG Degrees / PG Diplomas.
       The General Body perused the prescription pads issued by the
Respondent Dr.A.Sai Ravi Shankar and decided to mark the same as Exhibit –
P 1, Exhibit – P 2, Exhibit – P 3, Exhibit – P 4.
       The General Body noted that the document Exhibit – “P 1”, shows as
“Dr.A.SAI RAVI SHANKER, M.D (Med) (DNB tr.)., D.Card (NIMS., Hyd.)
CONSULTANT CARDIOLOGIST”.
        The document Exhibit – “P 2”, shows as “Dr.A.SAI RAVI SHANKER, M.D
(Med) (DNB tr.)., D.Card (NIMS., Hyd.) CONSULTANT CARDIOLOGIST”.
       The document Exhibit – “P 3”, shows as “Dr.A.SAI RAVI SHANKER, M.D
(Med) (DNB tr.)., D.Card (NIMS., Hyd.) CONSULTANT CARDIOLOGIST”.
       The document Exhibit – “P 4”, shows as “Dr.A.SAI RAVI SHANKER, M.D
(Med) DNB Card (NIMS., Hyd.) CONSULTANT CARDIOLOGIST”.
       The General Body came to the conclusion that the respondent is
displaying as suffix to his name the un-recognized diploma and also displaying
the DNB Card (NIMS., Hyd.) whereas it appears that he underwent training for
DNB for few months.
       In this context, the General Body has perused the Indian Medical Council
(Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics) Regulations, 2002 notified in
PART III-SECTION 4 of the Gazette of India Dt: April 6, 2002 and noted that:
       1.      Code of Medical Ethics
       B.      Duties and responsibilities of the Physician in general.
               1.1.1.      -   A Physician shall uphold the dignity and honour of his
                           profession.
               1.4         -   Display of Registration numbers
               1.4.2       -   Physicians shall display as suffix to their names only
                        recognized

go every month for check up, she had undergone scanning in the month of 03-02-2007
at DBR Diagnosis at Dilsuknagar, Hyderabad. After completion of 8 months, doctor has
refused the case to take up until delivery. The doctor advised her that she is not going to
take the case and the reason she said is that the patient is HB + for that, her hospital is
not equipped to counter this problem. Until 8 months, doctor said that the baby condition
is good. After 8 months all the difficulties started. After doctor declined to take up the
case we went to Fernandez Hospital at Abids, Hyderabad. Then they went to Dr.Kasturi.
She has taken the case and advised the patient to undergo scanning. In scanning, they
found that the baby body is not grown properly and they said that the baby to going
short. In the month June 13, I delivered female baby with multiple anomalies. They have
taken baby to Aruna Hospital to know the facts about the case. The doctor refused to
give proper reply on this and according to her husband the doctor has every right to
reject the case at any time without giving any reason. Is it true! If a lay man faces this
type of situation, where the patient has to go. Is the way Dr.Aruna treats the patient.
They went to police station to lodge a complaint against doctor, but they have refused to
take up the case. The baby lived for 3 months with so many problems and last she
passed away on 13th Sept. 2007. Due to negligence on the part of doctor and diagnosis
centre, they have lost baby and there is no value for the same. She has stated that they
have taken the baby to Rainbow Hospital and kept the baby under observation for 2
days; the hospital authorities have also do not have solutions to the problems that baby
is facing. Even Insurance Company has not paid the expenses for the baby and declined
the expenditure occurs during the treatment, the reason is that the baby was born with
so many anomalies and there is no coverage for this”.

       As per the notice issued in this regard, the respondent filed her reply affidavit
duly denying the allegations made against her. In her reply affidavit she has stated that
„the complainant came to my hospital for ante-natal care as an outpatient till 32 weeks of
pregnancy, the last consultation being on 05-05-2007, that she was advised to come
after 2 weeks for a review. But she did not come and as stated by the complainant she
went to Fernandez Hospital, Hyderabad and delivered a child with congenital anomalies‟
She has further stated that “It is not true that the doctor refused to continue Medical
Care on the ground of Patient being HBSAg Positive as alleged by her since she was
under my care even after being detected positive” She concluded her reply requesting
the A.P.Medical Council not to consider the false allegations made against her.

observations/recommendations.
(i)   Case No.01/2009:- The complaint made by Sri.K.Prasad against Dr.Srinivas
Bathini, Ongole.
      The General Body noted that the complainant, Sri K.Prasad made a complaint
against Dr.Srinivas Bathini, Sarada Children‟s Hospital, Ongole. The members have noted
that the complainant in his complaint has stated that “they had a baby on 17th January,
2009 and it was a caesarian at a small town i.e. Kandukur and the local doctor advised
him to take the baby to a Diabetic checkup, (keeping in mind that the baby‟s
grandparents have diabetes) to Ongole immediately after birth and referred to Dr.Srinivas
Bathini, M.D. (Paediatrics), MRCPCH (U.K.) of Sarada Children‟s Hospital. The mother and
father of the baby are not diabetic. The baby‟s cry was normal and had no convulsions.
The doctor was telling every one who visited the baby that he had brought down the
sugar levels from 2000 without giving any insulin, which the complainant feels is not
possible. He was also not willing to test the baby for serum bilrubin even after repeated
requests. The complainant felt that the doctor was trying to retain the baby for more
number of days in the hospital and misguided us with the 2000 mg/ dl report and was
not willing to test serum bilrubin. The 211 report could also been taken when the IV was
administered.    The   complainant   contended    whether    Neonatal   Jaundice    require
hospitalization in ICU for four days and is the 2020 mg/dl blood sugar report correct? “.

      The Respondent, Dr.Srinivas Bathini has submitted his explanation and stated that
on 17th January, 2009 the Baby was brought to Sharada Children‟s Hospital, Ongole on
the advice of Dr.Aluri Prabhakar Rao who suspected „Neonatal Diabetes‟ and requested
him to do diabetic screening keeping in view the genetic predisposition for diabetes, as
both the baby‟s grandparents were known diabetics. He has stated that the first sample
report had a reading of 2020mg/dl (17.01.2009) which is by all means an abnormal
reading which also had been cross checked & concurred by another lab which too gave
an abnormal reading of 1690mg/dl.

      He contended that with such high readings the clinical condition of the baby
should have been worse than the then exact prevailing condition of the baby and stated
that in day to day practice they come across false positive, false negative and some
abnormal report too. He has further stated that the new born baby with diabetes can
have hyperglycemia, acidaemia, dehydration. After further clinical observation of the
baby, they administered supportive care in the form of maintenance intravenous fluids,
continued warmer care, inj.vitamin k stat dose, inj.fortum 125 mg bid, inj. zinetac 5 units
bid, 30 ml of oral feeds 2nd hourly in the form of lactogen1. With the above treatment,
the baby‟s clinical condition was stable for the next 48 hours. During the process of
observation and supportive care on day 3 the baby developed neonatal physiological
jaundice which was assessed clinically by Crammer‟s method and was put on to
phototherapy in consonance to the guidelines. The Baby‟s general condition was stable
and with phototherapy treatment the condition of physiological jaundice had started
improving clinically. The physiological jaundice started declining from day 5 and was out
of phototherapy zone on the 6th day of life.

        He has concluded that the complainant has marked the subject of his complaint as
„Neonatal Diabetes measuring 2020 mg/dl‟, it is exactly and rightly because of this 2020
mg/dl, that he had to embark on this particular treatment as explained above. Having
thus tabled an exhaustive report as to the facts and exigencies dealt with in relation to
the case and he expressed that the committee perceives the case in its entirety
considering the fragility and all factors and regimens backed by respective established
and widely followed references. He has enclosed certain references on which he relied
upon.

        He has further stated that it is perplexing to note that despite the baby being
discharged from the hospital in a hale & healthy condition and who continues to be in the
pink of health even to this day (six months after being discharged), it is unfortunate to
have such allegations leveled against a successful, methodical & professional treatment
of the neonate.

        He contended that the complainant being a medical non-expert misinterpreted his
treatment process. He has also stated that all analysis, decision making and treatment
have been done with utmost regard to the oath taken by the medical fraternity and in
tune to his conscience.
        The General Body also noted that as per the decision taken in this regard
summons were issued to the complainant to appear before the E&MPC for 3 times. The
General Body noted that the E&MPC in its meeting held on 22.10.2009 sought for the
opinion of the Standing Counsel of APMC who was present. He expressed the view that
as per rules, the E&MPC may take necessary decision in this matter. The General Body
noted that the respondent was present before the E&MPC on 28.07.2009. The members
have gone through the following statement of the respondent.

      state we can practice any where in the country as my both the degrees
      were recognized by MCI.

Ans. Abnormal Random Blood Sugar Level reports and Neonatal Physiological
      Jaundice.
13.   Do you think that very high report of Blood Sugar i.e. 2020 is because of the
      wrongly sent blood sample or wrong reporting of the Lab or the baby really
      suspected diabetes?
Ans. The baby was not really suspecting diabetes. Hence we had not started
on
      Insulin therapy. The abnormal reports may be due to either wrong

referring
        doctor had requested me to take good care of the baby and rule out
        Neonatal Diabetes. I had tried to give the best care in these
        circumstances even though the reports were very abnormal.
                                                         SD/DR.SRINIVAS         BATHINI,
                                                     RESPONDENT

        The E&MPC after careful consideration of the material available on
record and the statement made by the respondent Dr.Bathini Srinivas has
come to the following conclusions:
        (i)     He did not maintain proper records (Case Sheet).
        (ii)    At the time of hearing, the Committee directed him for submission
                of records for the perusal of the Committee.
        (iii)   Inspite of insistence in this regard, he did not submit the required
                records.
        (iv)    The Committee noted that the respondent is displaying the degree
                of MRCPCH which he has not yet completed. As seen from his own
                statement, he is doing the course and appearing for the
                examination to be conducted by Royal College of Paediatrics and
                Child Health (UK).
        (v)     In view of the foregone conclusions, the Committee is of the
                opinion that the respondent, Dr.Bathini Srinivas be warned for non
             maintaining proper records; he shall also be warned for non
             submission of records to APMC inspite of insistence for the same
             by the Committee. The Committee is of the opinion that he shall be
             warned for displaying the degree which he has not yet completed,
             since displaying such degree is an un-ethical act and the
             respondent     doctor    thereby   violated     the   Code    of    Ethics
             incorporated in IMC Regulations 2002. The E&MPC also decided
             that the respondent, Dr.Bathini Srinivas be warned not to repeat
             such things in future.
        The observations/recommendations of the Ethical & Mal-Practices
Committee were placed before the Executive Committee on 22.10.2009 (03.00
PM).
        The Executive Committee after taking into consideration of the entire
material     on    record     and     taking    into       consideration    of     the
observations/recommendations of the E&MPC has decided to approve the
same.
        The General Body noted that the respondent, Dr.Srinivas Bathini has not
submitted relevant records as insisted by the E&MPC. The General Body noted
that in the discharge summary he has displayed to suffix his name, the
Degrees of „MD Ped. MRCPCH (UK), Consultant Neonatologist & Paediatric
Intensivist ‟. The members have noted that as per the statement made by the
respondent before the E&MPC the „MRCPCH (UK)‟ stands for Member in Royal
College of Paediatrics and Child Health (UK). The Members also noted that he
is doing the course at present and appearing for the examination. The
Members have gone through the provisions of IMC Regulations and noted that
according to Clause 1.4.2 of the regulations “Physicians shall display as suffix
to their names only recognized medical degrees or such certificates/diplomas
and memberships/honors which confer professional knowledge or recognizes
any exemplary qualification/achievements”. In view of the said provisions
Dr.K.Ramesh Reddy, Member expressed the view that we should write to
General Medical Council informing them about this doctor displaying the in-
completed degree. Taking into consideration of the fact that the doctor is
displaying an in-complete degree and thereby misleading the general public as
well as members of medical fraternity. Thus he has violated the provisions of
IMC Regulations 2002.
       The members have also noted that as to the question, did he enclose the
report of the other lab which cross-checked with first lab report, he has replied
“No”. As to the further question, “Where is the Case Sheet? What about the
Jaundice?”. He has replied that “Available (will be produced within three
weeks). The Neonatal Physiological Jaundice was diagnosed clinically on 3 rd
day of life and was started on photo therapy”.
       The members noted that inspite of assurance given by him to submit the
case-sheet, the respondent doctor has kept himself silent and did not submit
the same to the Council. The members have also noted that the respondent
doctor has got himself registered in APMC recently whereas he is practicing in
AP for the last few years which is contrary to the provisions of Section-20 of
A.P.Medical Practitioners Registration Act, 1968.
       In this context, the members have gone through the following
provisions of the IMC Regulations, 2002.
       2.      Code of Medical Ethics
       C.      Duties and responsibilities of the Physician in general.
               2.1.1. -       A Physician shall uphold the dignity and honour of his
               profession.

               1.4.2      -   Physicians shall display as suffix to their names only
               recognized
               medical degrees or such certificates/diplomas and memberships/honors
               which confer professional knowledge or recognizes any exemplary
               qualification/achievements.
                                        CHAPTER-7
       7.      MISCONDUCT:-         The following acts of commission or omission on the
part of a physician shall constitute professional misconduct rendering him/her liable for

               CHAPTER-8:PUNISHMENT AN DISCIPLINARY ACTION

8.1    It must be clearly understood that the instances of offences and of Professional
misconduct which are given above do not constitute and are not intended to constitute a
complete list of the infamous acts which calls for disciplinary action and that by issuing
this notice the Medical Council of India and/or State Medical Councils are in no way
precluded from considering and dealing with any other form of professional misconduct
on the part of a registered practitioner. Circumstances may and do arise from time to
time in relation to which there may occur questions of professional misconduct which do
not come within any of these categories. Every care should be taken that the code is not
violated in letter or spirit. In such instances as in all others, the Medical Council of India
and / or State Medical Council‟s have to consider and decide upon the facts brought
before the Medical Council of India and / or State Medical Councils.

8.2    It is made clear that any complaint with regard to professional misconduct can be
brought before the appropriate Medical Council for Disciplinary action. The appropriate
Medical Council would hold an enquiry and give opportunity to the registered medical
practitioner to be heard in person or by pleader. If the medical practitioner is found to be
guilty of committing professional misconduct, the appropriate Medical Council may award
such punishment as deemed necessary or may direct the removal altogether or for a
specified period, from the register of the name of the delinquent registered practitioner.
Deletion from the Register shall be widely publicized in local press as well as in the
publications of different Medical Associations/Societies/Bodies.

       In view of the foregoing observations and taking into consideration of the IMC
Regulations-2002, the General Body came to the conclusion that the respondent doctor
has indulged in un-ethical acts and thereby violated the provisions of IMC Regulations
and acted in contravention to the mandatory provisions of APMPR Act, 1968.

       Therefore, the respondent doctor deserves for punishment and decided that the
name of Dr.Srinivas Bathini be removed from the Medical Register for a period of One
Month as per the provisions of Section-17 (2) r/w Section-15 (4) of APMPR Act, 1968
from the date of issuing orders in this regard. It is also decided to direct the respondent
to surrender his Original Registration Certificate granted to him by A.P.Medical Council as
per the provisions of Section-17 (5) of the Act.

(iii) Case      No.20/2008:-   The     complaint    made     by   Ms.L.Suvarna          against
Dr.S.V.Adinarayana Rao, Prema Hospital, Visakhapatnam.
       The      E&MPC     has     noted     that     a     registered        letter     bearing
No.APMC/DC/015/Case No.20/2008, dt:02.09.2009 was addressed to both
the complainant and the respondent. In the letter addressed to the

addressed to the respondent, Dr.S.V.Adinarayana Rao, he was requested to
provide proper Physiotherapy and other measures as promised by him and see
that she will be able to walk without any support. He was also requested to
inform the Council on this aspect.
       The E&MPC came to the conclusion that the complaint made by
Ms.L.Suvarna against Dr.S.V.Adinarayana Rao may be closed as there is no
further complaint from the complainant regarding this case even after
addressing her thorough this office registered letter No.APMC/DC/015/Case
No.20/2008, dt:02.09.2009. The E&MPC recommended to the Executive
Committee accordingly.
       The Executive Committee in its meeting held on 22.10.2009 (03.00 PM)
has considered this item and decided that the complaint made by
Ms.L.Suvarna be closed as there is no further complaint regarding this case

No.APMC/DC/015/Case No.20/2008, dt:02.09.2009.
       The General Body taking into consideration of the material on record
together with the statements made by the parties concerned and the
observations/recommendations made by the E&MPC as decided by the
Executive Committee has decided                to close the complaint made by
Ms.L.Suvarna.      However,     taking     into    consideration      of     the   facts     and
circumstances of the case, it is decided that the matter has to be considered if
the complainant makes fresh complaint on the default of the respondent to
fulfill the assurance given by him to the Ethical & Mal-Practices Committee.
(iv) Case No.16/2009:- The complaint made by Sri Meduri Ramesh Chandra against
Dr.M.Bharathi and another. The E&MPC has gone through the reply furnished by
M.Bharathi, Jt.Director, APFSL, Hyderabad and noted that Scientists (not medical

       The General Body taking into consideration of the observations / recommendations
of the E&MPC as approved by the Executive Committee has decided that the complaint
made by Sri Meduri Ramesh Chandra against Dr.M.Bharathi and another may be dropped
in view of the fact that the respondents are Forensic Experts and not registered
practitioners and as such the A.P.Medical Council has no jurisdiction to enquire in to the
allegations made against non-medical men. It is also decided that the complainant may
be addressed so that he may represent the matter before the concerned authorities for
redressal of his grievance.
(ii) Case No.03/2009:- The complaint made by Sri Md.Reyaz Pasha against
Dr.K.Satyanarayana & Dr.Sameer Diwale. The General Body noted that the complainant
Sri Md.Reyaz Pasha has stated that his daughter, baby Md.Shaistha was suffering with
Cyanotic congenital heart disease, large sub aortic ventricular Septal defect, large patent
Ductus Arteriosus Severe Pulmonary Artery Hypertension and she was admitted on 05-
03-2007 in Wockhardt Heart Centre, Wockhardt Heart Hospitals, Kamineni Hospitals
Campus, Hyderabad. The complainant has stated that he has paid the necessary doctor
fees and surgery charges as demanded by the said hospital by applying to “Govt. of A.P.,
Cardiac screening children below 12 years” and the surgery i.e. cyanotic congenital heart
disease, large sub aortic ventricular Septal defect, large patent Ductus Arteriosus Severe
Pulmonary Artery Hypertension was performed to the baby Md.Shaistha on 07-03-2007.
But due to medical negligence on the part of the said hospital, the patient developed post
operative complications like febrile spike and the next day morning she was drowsy, not
responding to commands, icteric and febrile and she was diagnosed to have cerebral
malaria with enteric fever and hepatic encephalopathy and as such the patient was
transferred to pediatric ICU in Kamineni Hospitals with a view to cover-up their medical
negligence during the pre-operative period and also during post operative care.
      He contended that the conduct of Wockhardt Heart Centre, Wockhardt heart
Hospitals and Kamineni Hospitals amounts to deficit of service i.e. medical negligence as
well as deficiency in post operative care.

       The General Body noted that as per the notice issued in this regard, the
Respondents, Dr.K.Satyanarayana and Dr. Sameer Diwale filed their reply affidavits. Both
of them have denied the allegations made against them. Dr.K.Satyanarayana has stated
that there was no negligence either medically or otherwise on his part. He has further
stated that it was the combination of Cerebral Malaria, Typhoid, Encephalopathy, Sepsis
and Jaundice, which contributed to the deterioration of the patient. He has denied that
the Wockhardt Heart Centre and Kamineni Hospitals colluded with one another and /
looted the complainant by playing with the life of the victim baby in order to extract
money as alleged or otherwise.


       Dr.Sameer Diwale in his reply affidavit has stated that the patient was discerned
as a high-risk candidate for surgery in view of severe pulmonary hypertension. The 10%
risk of mortality/morbidity was explained to the parents of the patient. He has stated that
it was further explained that after the proposed operation it was quite possible that her
PAH might not resolve completely and that she would lead a lifestyle with limited effort
tolerance in such a situation. He has stated that the decision was taken to intubate and
reinstitute mechanical ventilation. The patient was subjected to intensive chest therapy,
endotracheal tube suction and given appropriate medicine to clear her lungs. He has also
stated that the chest x-ray was done on 08-03-2007 which showed the endotracheal tube
in place and no effusion or collapse of the lungs despite the bi lateral crepts and bronchi.
He has stated that the reason for the transfer to the Paediatric ICU was to specialize and
give optimal care to the patient and not due to the fact the diagnosis, which should have

       responsibility from the time of admission till discharge. I have fulfilled
       this responsibility insofar as even after the transfer of the patient from
       Wockhardt Heart Centre to Kamineni hospitals, I have regularly visited
       the patient and monitored the progress of the patient. I have also had

       treated in the same manner medically irrespective of whether the case is
       subsidized by the government or not.
28.    Have you asked for money, more than what the Government has
       sanctioned?
Ans.   No. The question of asking for money does not arise when my
       professional fees are given by the Hospital. The patient‟s fees structure
       is an administrative function and is handled by the Hospital. The doctor
       does not come into play.
                                                               DR.SAMEER DIWALE, RESPONDENT

       27 & 352 of the affidavit of Dr.K.Satyanarayana, dated 9th July, 2009).
7.     Whether HBS Ag. Screening Test was done? When?
Ans.   HBS Ag. Screening was done pre-operatively and blood products which
       are given peri-operatively are screened for HBS Ag. Hence the HBS Ag.
       test was not repeated post-operatively and was not necessitated.
       However, Hepatitis Viral Markers were conducted for Hepatitis-A & C to
       rule out viral hepatitis as a cause for Jaundice, other than Malaria and

              to Hon‟ble President, District Consumer Forum, R.R.District that “ when the
             serious medical problem i.e. encephalopathy which is not within the realm of
             cardiac surgery is identified, shifting the patient to Paediatric ICU constitute
             ideal optimal patient care” be noted.
   (ii)      There is no professional negligence on the part of respondent doctors,
             Dr.Sameer Diwale and Dr.K.Satyanarayana. There is no negligence on the part
             of treating doctors, non-monitoring aspects and the post sequele is because of
             the consequent infection which is not connected with the Surgery.
   (iii)     The management of Wockhardt Heart Hospital and Kamineni Hospital be
             advised for consideration of refund of 50% of the bill amount which was borne
             by the complainant on humanitarian grounds and taking into consideration of
             the poor economical condition of the complainant and in view of the fact that
             the patient was admitted under government scheme of „ AP Cardiac Screening
             children below 12 years‟.
   The Ethical & Mal-Practices Committee recommends to the Executive
Committee accordingly.
   The Executive Committee after taking into consideration of the entire material on
record and taking into consideration of the observations/recommendations of the E&MPC
has decided to approve the same in relation to the aspects of negligence. The Executive
Committee did not accept the other recommendation of the E&MPC that “the

borne by the complainant on humanitarian grounds and taking into consideration of the
poor economical condition of the complainant and in view of the fact that the patient was
admitted under government scheme of „AP Cardiac Screening children below 12
years”.
           The General Body has perused the entire material together with the
statements of parties concerned. Dr.K.Ramesh Reddy, Member speaking on
the occasion expressed the view that „when a serious problem occurred if the
patient is undergoing treatment under Government package, the hospital
management should treat the patient with the permission of the Government
authorities”. He has further expressed the view in this case, „the respondent
doctors shifting the patient to Paediatric ICU is not correct. It seems that the
respondents have washed their hands by shifting the patient to Paediatric ICU
and levied charges of Rs.40,000/- from the patient‟.
      Dr.P.Sucharitha Murthy, Ex-Officio member expressed the view that „this
type of problems will occur after blood transfusion and they should screen for
malaria also‟. She has also expressed the view that „all these are hospital
infections‟.
      Dr.K.Ramesh Reddy has further expressed his view that „the Kamineni
Hospitals and Wockhardt Heart Centre are one and the same, they cannot say
that these are different institutions‟. He has also expressed the view that „the
respondent doctors violated the code of Ethics and it is a misconduct since the
patient was shifted to another hospital where the patient was admitted for
treatment under a Government package treatment.‟ He has expressed the
view „that during the course of treatment, the hospital management should
not charge extra amount even in the case of complications arose‟.
      The General Body expressed the unanimous view that if there are any
problems arise under the package, the hospital management should represent
the Government for further approval.
      The General Body taking into consideration of the facts of the case
together with the statements made by the parties concerned and the
observations/recommendations of the E&MPC and the decision taken by the
Executive Committee has decided that a letter be addressed to the
management of the hospital to refund the extra amount which was charged
from the patient.
