Holding that “No cure shall not be construed as Negligence”, the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) absolved a Darjeeling based Government Hospital and its doctor from charges of medical negligence while treating the patient suffering from a fractured leg.
Although the patient had alleged that his leg shortened due to the negligent treatment given by the doctor and the hospital, the NCDRC bench perused the medical record and observed, “I do not find any negligence during treatment of fractured right leg of patient. The patient was operated as per standard of practice. Unfortunately, he suffered non-union…The disability 1 ½’ was a sequel of the non-union, but it was neither due to negligence or deficiency in the treatment.”
