3541 OF 2002) THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA...The ante mortem injuries-Despite clinical signs of perforation the OP continued to treat the patient vaguely for 5 days without ....Expenses actually incurred were to the tune of only Rs.81,246/-, and the claim filed is for an amount of Rs.25.07 corers-claim rejectedThe Commission has held that there is no hard and fast rule as to when hysterectomy should be performed as a life saving measure. It can be decided by the concerned doctor only, after assessing the condition of the patient.Complication - atonics secondary PPH .(A complicated case required the attention of an experienced gynecologist (See Williams of Obstetrics page 825, 22nd edition)-There was no entry found in Pre-operative instruction with regard to the relevant blood group of the patient and the quantity that was required to be kept ready, it was held that it goes to show that it was the lack of foresight on part of the doctors, adequate information or advisory necessary to be given to prospective mother had not been rendered.

Had there been a blood bank, the precious life of the complainant’s wife perhaps could have been saved.-Select between the two complications..Child was detected with Brachial Palsy which was linked to the shoulder dystocia .Doctors invariably choose the lesser risk).we find substance in the contention of doctor that this is an inherent risk which can occur in cases of shoulder dystocia where force has to be used for the delivery.

Ultrasonography was done regularly to determine the growth and status of the foetus and when during the delivery, the shoulder got trapped which was not expected in the first instance, an episiotomy was done and even then when the shoulder dystocia did not get relieved, there was no alternative but to pull-out the newborn by using forcep,action had to be taken immediately otherwise the baby could have either suffered hypoxia which is a very severe mental retardation and also his life could have been seriously endangered.

we are unable to conclude that there was any medical negligence on the part of the Respondents.The contention of the complainant that the wife being Rh-ve and he being Rh+ve had nothing to do with the complications cannot be accepted since the incompatibility of these two opposite Rh factors is well established in medical science....treating doctor had clearly stated the deceased to be a primigravida of 22 weeks pregnancy with Rh-ve factor.It is, of course, not stated that since the husband belongs to the Rh+ve factor, her pregnancy was likely to have undesirable implications.However, be that as it may, a perusal of the medical records before undertaking the LSCS does not indicate that adequate information or advisory necessary to be given to a prospective mother, had been rendered...hospital did not have the arrangement for the blood and considering that the elderly pregnant woman was of the Rh-v e factor,in our view, it was very necessary for the doctors to have made prior arrangement for the required blood before embarking on the LSCS.

Obviously, this was not done.. What, however, we find is that the opposite party/hospital is a purely maternity center undertaking delivery of children including complicated cases all-round the year, in the process, they must have encountered situations wherein even in a normal delivery blood would have been required for transfusion to anemic mothers....
