Register FIR against those alleged of medical negligence: High Court
7/7/2020 10:44:54 PM

Early Times Report

Srinagar, July 7: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Tuesday directed the administration to register FIR at first instance against those who are involved in alleged medical negligence.
A public interest litigation (PIL) was filed after a number of alleged medical negligence incidents were reported across Kashmir valley wherein pregnant ladies and newborn babies have died. High court of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar, has directed health authorities of all the districts to keep separate maternity hospitals for pregnant women and children equipped with all facilities and separate trained staff. The high court ruling says strict magisterial enquiry must be held every time if any incident of medical negligence happens resulting in the death of a child or a pregnant woman. “There must be an FIR at first instance against those who are alleged to have caused medical negligence which causes death of any pregnant woman and their unborn children so that it shall be a deterrence for others and incidents of medical negligence may be minimized,” the HC ruling states. The High Court further stated that there should be compensation to victims of medical negligence and the same be deducted from the salary of those employees guilty of medical negligence.
The ruling says there should be departmental/ disciplinary action against the erring officials/ employees.
Earlier, the reports of alleged medical negligence have surfaced from various parts of the valley including a pregnant lady from Anantnag who was denied admission at two hospitals, another pregnant woman was denied treatment at Handwara hospital and an ambulance was denied to a pregnant lady in Anantnag. Pertinently, public interest litigation was filed in the High Court by advocate Mir Umer for which the proceedings were held through video conferencing.
