Shri Manishbhai Kantilal Joshi vs Sheth P. T. Surat General Hospital, Surat, National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, New Delhi, Consumer Case No. 366 of 2014, dated: 09 Feb 2016

“A Doctor, like any other professional can take leave if felt necessary by him on account of his personal reasons or otherwise. If that happens it is for the hospital in which the patient is admitted to make alternative arrangement for the treatment of the patient in the hospital… Like other normal human being also needs to take rest and his meals and then get ready for the duty to be performed on the next day.”
