Medical Supdt & 2 doctors suspended in Gujarat

Gandhinagar: In connection with botched-up surgeries in 2022 on 12 patients at the Amreli Medical College, the license of an assistant professor was suspended for six months and that of senior resident doctor for three months. The medical superintendent of the medical college has also been suspended for six months, Among the 12 patients, some claimed that they suffered from permanent blindness and remained with partial blindness.

While canceling the licenses of two doctors, the GMC stated, “National and state guidelines were not followed strictly either by the surgeons or by the hospital management, the hospital authority, the hospital infection control committee, and its nursing staff, which resulted in this unfortunate post-cataract surgery infection outbreak and caused permanent blindness to some and partial blindness to rest among the 12 patients in question.” Additionally, GMC asked the charity commissioner to initiate steps against the trust and trustees involved in the incident. The council also instructed the Gujarat Nursing Council to take punitive action against four nursing staff members in Amreli in connection with the case.
