Transparency in medical treatment, implementation of MCI rules about mandatory documents
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
As a patient currently I m struggling to get my own medical documents which are mandatory by rule such as consent forms of my knee arthroscopy n surgery. Doctor's daignosis report. Registration number of one surgeon. It seems that MCI rules are not followedby doctors n hospital. And as a result there is no option for me but to fight in court.
Also it has been understood that as per MCI rules Scopy recording n providing a CD for the same to the patient is not mandatory. It means there is a huge lack of medical transparency in treatment
I was facing problem in my left knee, dr has performed Arthroscopy where he found the cartilage damage which was not detected in MRI. Hospital has not done the recording of this Scopy as it is not mandatory.
While in court case drs have submitted some photos as a proof. But photos can not be considered as a proof as it can be taken after creation of damage, photos can not proove that the cartilage damage was existing in my body before performing a Scopy...all these things creates a doubt in the mind of patient.
Also there should be a standard protocol in medical treatment such as in any orthopaedic case considering the reports n patients conditions first try exercise n then try any Scopy or surgery.
Consent form should be very clear. Brief description requirement of surgery, other option in any, advantages n disadvantages of surgery, any other effects on body etc. Consent form for daignostic Scopy should be separate n on the same it should be clearly mentioned.
Daignosis report - current condition of patient, reason behind taking the decision of any Scopy or surgery.
Both the documents should be given to the patient while discharge.
Consent form should be in local language, Hindi n English
Medical cases should be run on fast track basis
