    Default Loss of faith: CIC directs GB Pant Hospital to change surgeon of patient who filed RTI


    Loss of faith: CIC directs GB Pant Hospital to change surgeon of patient who filed RTI

    New Delhi, July 02: THE Central Information Commission (CIC) today asked GB Pant Hospital authorities to change the cardiac surgeon of a patient, who alleged she had lost faith in the doctor after he was irked by her RTI applications.

    The patient, Jameela, alleged that the surgeon was annoyed at her and her son, Javed, for filing RTI applications regarding the treatment.

    The CIC, noting that “a treatment of this nature requires complete trust between doctor and patient, which is entirely absent in the present case,” directed that Dr Satsangi be replaced.

    Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah also directed the CPIO Dr NR Laskar CMO to report back to the Commission within a week about the action taken in pursuance of the direction.

    In her complaint to the CIC, Jameela alleged that the surgeon had ordered his peon to throw her son out of his chamber and “sarcastically said that only the RTI would operate on his mother”.

    Jameela is a below poverty line BPL card holder, and had filed an RTI application with the state-run hospital hospital in May seeking information about the rules for free treatment of those belonging to BPL category. After undergoing angiography tests to detect a blockage in her arteries, Jameela wanted to know the exact date of her surgery for coronary arteries bypass grafting (CABG).

    The hospital authorities provided her the information sought but failed to ensure her free treatment, forcing her to make another RTI application.

    When Jameela’s son approached the surgeon concerned after getting the hospital’s response to her applications, he was allegedly humiliated, prompting her to approach the CIC with a complaint.

    This needs some action. Can members suggest how to use RTI and show the doctor and the hospital authorities that not only "RTI will operate on his mother" but it will operate on the doctors and hospital themselves too. I am willing to spend upto Rs 1000.00 just to ask question under RTI with these heartless, callous, careless people manning Government Hospitals !
    Common members, we are supposed to guide and help people. Please, let's do something about this.

    It is a fit case for the CIC to recommend initiation of approproate disciplinary proceedings against the hospital administrators and the surgeon concerned.

    Ganpat,

    How about 25 members of this forum addressing RTI applications to PIO of GB Pant Hospital, on different subjects, but ALL pertaining to this particular doctor. This will atleast give the PA and the doctor a hint that their words and actions are not only confined to the environs of the hospital and CIC but also to the public at large.
    Wonder if this doctor still remembers his Hippocratic Oath !

    If we all believe in an eye for an eye then the whole world will be blind.

    I wonder what happened to GandhiGiri by Munna Bhai.

    Karira, I personally feel harassing will not archive the objective. There is no defense that the doctor has erred and he should be punished for that. The whole load of RTI will not only hurt that doctor but also slow down the hospital administration, in turn the patients will suffer.

    Only Love and Forgiveness can unite. Gandhigiri though a lost ideal is more suitable in such situations

    Maneesh,

    I read somewhere else on the forum about people being beaten up and threatened for using RTI. With magnamity, I can definitely condone even that. But a Doctor saying "RTI will operate on his mother" is unpardonable.
    Please suggest methods of "Gandhigiri" to be used and lets use them.
    I am willing to go to any extent of Gandhigiri to take this Doctor to task.
    Please suggest.
    Please do not ask me to pray to God that the Doctor should suffer in his next life.

    There is no denying fact that people were threatened and beaten for using RTI.
    But the same happened in Satyagrah lead by Father of Nation, there also people were beaten up and rough up. Did they resort to force??

    Force can always be replied with force.

    There can be a number of ways of doing Gandhigiri depending on circumstances.

    The relation between a doctor and patient is entirely of trust. Kushal will be able to throw more light on to it.

    The doctor has grossly erred by saying "RTI will operate", for that the direction of CIC and departmental action is necessary.

    RTI is wonderful tool which should be used with great caution. In discriminate use of RTI for punishing people who have erred, will undermine the very ACT.

    maneesh,

    Please do not evade the issue and pass the buck to kushal.
    You suggested "gandhigiri".
    I accepted your suggestion whole heartedly and also agreed to follow your advise to any extent.
    Please give a concrete suggestion and I promise I will do whatever you suggest without asking any counter question.
    Thanks in advance.
