In the same judgment, Samira Kohli vs. Dr. Prabha Manchanda, the Hon’ble Supreme Court stated:

“32. iv. There can be a common consent for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures where they are contemplated. There can also be a common consent for a particular surgical procedure and an additional or further procedure that may become necessary during the course of surgery.”

    We are trying to copy USA , but see what financial resources we have. All these add to cost of treatment. Our politicians and courts live in fools paradise and are not aware of ground realty of working conditions of doctors and hospitals . Regarding Fortes Arrest for delay treatment, what happen if police do not register FIR or officer fails to deliver their duty. Is there any action against them? Hardly few cases and that too get Scott free. Politicians are gentle both on Police & executive because they have to get their illegal work done through them. Doctor is holi cow . Time has come for us to convert from Holi cow to BULL
