Patient operated for ovarian cyst, kin lodges complaint against wrong report

Kolkata: Family members of a patient lodged a complaint in local police station against a diagnostic centre situated at Kestopur alleging that it had provided a wrong report.
They alleged that the report said that the patient had a cyst in her ovary but when she was taken for the operation the doctors found that there was no cyst.
The victim, Sudarsana Poddar, had undergone a test at a diagnostic centre and on the basis of its report the patient was treated.
They also alleged that the doctors performed wrong surgery for which they were asked to pay a bill of Rs 84,000.
The family members said that the patient was operated for ovarian cyst whereas in reality she had no cyst inside her ovary.
They said that despite knowing that the patient had no ovarian cyst the doctors carried out a surgery on the patient only to increase the bill. The doctors came to know that there was no cyst in her ovary after a laparoscopy was performed on the patient on the operation table.
They alleged that USG was carried out twice by the diagnostic centre.
Both the reports have suggested that there was a cyst in her ovary.
The doctors decided to operate on the patient on the basis of the report.
They alleged that Rs 50,000 was charged for carrying out the operation, the necessity of which was in question.
The family members of the victim lodged a complaint at Baguiati police station.
They demanded stringent action against those who were responsible for this incident.
They also raised questions about why the doctors took the decision of the operation on the basis of faulty reports. They also hinted of appealing to various health services related forums to get justice for the victim.
