Stop Indian Medical Malpractices and Negligence by setting up Medical Review System

This petition had 15,534 supporters

Doctors and Healthcare providers are not Gods but humans, who can be ignorant, unethical, inexperienced or make mistakes which put the patient at risk from a disability to death. On top of their mistakes, they are ignorant in providing the correct medical records to patients family to cover-up their mistakes and shield themselves from any legal action. 

We urge the Ministry of Health and Family welfare and Medical Council of India to make the healthcare professionals and service providers more transparent and accountable of their actions by

1. Setting out an accountable medical peer review committee for each and every medical case in same or different hospital: Bank clerks have manager over them to approve their work, Government officers have supervisors over them, Engineers have their Review and Test teams which sign and approve of work done by them, then why none is accountable to review and validate/authorise/approve the medicine and its dosage, tests and surgeries/procedures suggested by a doctor or test conducted by a diagnostic centre?

2. Daily updated medical records, test reports, video recorded surgeries, ICU care LIVE/recorded footage be available to the patient's family: ICUs and Operation theatres are closed doors behind which family members have no idea what malpractices/negligence is being carried out by doctors or nursing staff. Test reports and medical records are not provided to family members so they know nothing about which medicines are being injected in which quantity on daily basis. The records and reports are not released until the patient is discharged which doesn't happen until a huge hospitalisation bill has been prepared by hospitals. Unnecessary tests and procedures are conducted on patient which not only put a financial burden on family but also adversely effects the patients health and risk his/her life.  In some cases, it becomes too late to recover patient because hospital was busy making money out of expensive drugs and unnecessary/careless  surgeries.

It is the responsibility of the government to provide efficient medical review system to stop medical malpractices which is putting life of million of Indian and tourist patients at risks. Please sign this petition to help fight against medical malpractices.
