Chennai govt hospital ordered to pay Rs 1.6 lakh compensation for botched surgery.

The sterilisation procedure happened in 2001, but the woman realised that the surgery was botched up in 2017 when she got pregnant again.  The District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum, Chennai has ordered the Government Peripheral Hospital, Tondiarpet to pay Rs 1.6 lakh to a woman for medical negligence. The hospital had, in 2001, botched up a sterilisation procedure on the woman who later had to suffer health complications because of that.According to a report, Jhansi Rani, resident of Washermanpet in Chennai, had opted for a sterilisation procedure at the Government Peripheral Hospital in 2001. Life continued to be normal until after a few years, when she suffered from nausea, stomach pain, loss of appetite and a nervous disorder, according to her complaint.
Jhansi Rani then knocked on the doors of the District Consumer Disputes Redressal forum in March 2020 seeking compensation. The forum heard both the sides and awarded Rs 1.6 lakh to her, to be paid by the hospital for its negligence.
