110% rise in number of medical negligence cases in India every year: Study

Nagpur: A study by Supreme Court advocate Mahendra Kumar Bajpai, who specialises in medical law, shows a 110 per cent rise in number of medical negligence cases in India every year.

The study also reveals that 90 per cent of all cases in medical negligence involve hospitals, and 12 per cent of all the cases decided by consumer courts are on medical negligence.

Between 60 to 66 per cent of the filed cases are because of hospitals taking improper consent from relatives before performing certain procedures or switching hospitals, or improper documentation throughout the course of diagnosis and treatment, reports ToI.
