Reviews –


“Medico Legal Aid to Hospitals and Doctors with Consumer Protection Law has been written keeping in mind the special needs of doctors, hospitals, para medical staff, hospital administrators, students and practitioners of law. The book contains a brief commentary on the laws applicable to hospitals, the Human Organ Transplantation Act, PNDT Act and topics of interest to Doctors and Hospitals. The book contains relevant case laws. Topic wise commentary has been provided instead of the usual method of dealing with the law section wise. While doctors, hospitals and those who are connected with hospital administration should be aware of their responsibility, courts have held that those who provide essential services should not be subjected to harassment. The book brings out what is expected of a doctor in skill, care and expertise. The book is an earnest attempt to elucidate the provisions of law, settled cases on the subject and all relevant issues for the benefit of all medical fraternity who feel aggrieved on account of inclusion of doctors and hospitals under the provisions of Consumer Protection Act, 1986. The authors have brought the contents in such a way that the book serves as a comprehensive legal guide for medical practitioners and hospital administrators. Hence it is recommended for all members of the medical fraternity..”

“The authors have brought the contents in such a way that the book in itself serves as a complete legal bible for medical practitioners & hospital administrators. The book also serves as a ready reckoner as it also contains landmark decisions of the Supreme Court & National Commission. The Consumer Protection Act of Act 1986 shook up the entire profession. The authors have complete command over this law & have elaborately explained the details about law which every medical practitioner should understand. This book will be of great value to the medical practitioners & hospitals & I congratulate the authors for bringing out the tedious legalities in a concise manner. No doubt a lot of perseverance and hard work has been put into by the authors to bring out this excellent finished product.”

….Dr. Shreekant Kelkar, Director, national Institute of Ophthalmology.

“Hence, the Book ‘Medico Legal Aid to Hospitals and Doctors’, in the context of Consumer Protection law would certainly help the Doctors, Consumers, Lawyers and the Consumer For a. The Authors have also incorporated the Consumer Protection Act 1986 with the latest amendments and the Consumer Protection Rules, 2005. It would also be of great value to the medical practitioners and the Hospitals in discharge of their obligations to the Society by adhering to the ethics of the noble profession. It would also make the Hospitals realize the importance of maintaining proper records so that the relevant Record is provided by the patients at the time of their discharge from the Hospitals. I hope all success in this venture of Mr. & Mrs. Pandit in bringing out this second edition.”
