Doctor in the dock for dereliction of duty

Doctor in the dock for dereliction of duty

Meanwhile, Dr O S Siddappa, who had sent a notice to Dr Anand Alladi for his response to the accusation a week ago, said that he has received a reply from Dr Alladi, which he has to submit to the government.

In January this year, a child died after a surgery conducted by Dr Alladi in Apollo Hospital. Dr Alladi is on the payrolls of Vani Vilas Hospital and performed the operation during duty hours.

After trying with many authorities to get the doctor to pay for the negligence, the child’s grandparents – Dr Narasimha Murthy and his wife – approached Ramdas and gave a written complaint in June.

Following this, the minister ordered an inquiry into the matter and the inquiry report recommended that a criminal complaint be registered against the doctor at the jurisdictional police station.

The complaint has been filed in Wilson Garden police station. It also recommended that compensation for the death should be borne by the doctor. The inquiry report also stated that the attendance report had been tampered with and that the doctor had given a leave letter without getting authorisation from the medical superintendent.
