Hospitals will pay if consulting Doctors involved in Medical Carelessness

Shakila Banu had a fall seven years ago, used to get back pain while sitting for over 3 hours at a stretch. She was admitted to Padmini Nursing Home in Chennai where Dr. K Chandran performed a spinal surgery.

Post surgery, Shakila developed severe problems such as lack of urine and motion sensation; over sensitivity to light, sound and smell; inability to sit for more than 30 minutes; inability to walk. Moreover, she also started getting fits and developed high blood pressure.

After going through the medical record and scan reports, it was found that the “S” nerve was cut and the flesh was not properly replaced. Shakila ultimately expired.

Shakila’s parents filed a complaint, and as per supreme court, it was set out that a hospital owes a duty to give proper treatment.
