Maharashtra Medical Council issues notices to pathologists

Monday, November 23, 2015

Mumbai: Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC) has reportedly issued show-cause notices to pathologists from Thane, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Baramati and Sangli who are believed to have allowed lab technicians to use their name and signature for money to prepare pathology test reports.

The move came after the Maharashtra Association of Practising Pathologists and Microbiologists (MAPPM) complained against a pathologist, who allowed the technician to use his signature for signing the reports.

“We found that many qualified pathologists were allowing laboratories to use their name and manual or electronic signature for money. The doctors had never even visited the laboratories,” Dr Sandeep Yadav, president of MAPPM, has been quoted by DNA as saying.
