WB: Mediapersons thrashed by junior doctors

SMJ - Reply from Hospital

Dear All,
you might have watched Satyamave Jayate episode 4.....
there are some hidden facts of Mr Rai case...
these have been received in my mail box as a forward...
i presume they are genuine......

Pl. see details of one of the cases discussed in the show; the other side of the story
I have hidden the details of the doctor
The complainant (Mr. Rai) has provided false information and also withheld crucial information which may have made Aamir Khan believe the fabricated story of Pankaj Rai.

1. Mr. Rai never informed Aamir Khan that Mrs. Seema Rai was registered for a cadaver transplantation more than one year prior to surgery. The call on the night of admission was made because a cadaver donor had become available. Cadaver transplantation has to be done emergently, otherwise the organ(s) will decay and become useless. That is why the patient was admitted on the night of 1 May 2010. The patient and her family were all informed about risks and benefits of transplantation for more than 2 years (since June 2008).

2. Mr. Rai, Mrs. Rai and Abha Rai all were again counseled for more than 1 hour on the night of admission about kidney and pancreas transplantation. Subsequently they also discussed with their relative in New York. Then on the night of 1 May itself Mr. Rai personally informed the doctors to proceed with kidney + pancreas transplantation. The Informed Consent form was signed on the night of 1 May itself and handed over the ward doctor. The Karnataka Medical Council as well as the National Law School of India have investigated the Informed Consent issue and clearly stated that Informed Consent was indeed taken prior to surgery. In fact, if the Informed Consent was not given on the night of 1 May, the organ would have been allocated to the next patient on the waiting list for cadaver transplantation who was already admitted to another Hospital. (Whenever a cadaver donor is available, several patients on the waiting list such as Seema Rai are called and advised to get admitted.)

3. Mr. Rai never asked anybody in the Hospital to stop the surgery at any time. He was plainly lying when he made a statement to that effect to Aamir Khan. On the contrary, during the entire hospitalization, Mr. Rai was praising the doctors for their hardwork in trying to save his wife.

4. The patient did not receive 119 units of blood, i.e., 60 liters of blood. She received 33 units of blood over 4 days which is about 10 liters since she had developed a massive bleeding condition called Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC). She also received platelets, FFP and other blood products to correct DIC.

5. The surgeon is definitely qualified to conduct pancreatic transplantation as well as kidney transplantation. He is trained at the world famous Hospitals in the United States where he had conducted numerous multi-organ transplantation surgeries.

6. The Hospital was registered for multi-organ transplantation. There was a clerical error in the Certificate which was acknowledged by the Health Department. The Health Department have clearly stated in their report that registration for liver includes pancreas as well (since the skill required for transplantation of both these organs is one and the same).

7. Mr. Rai also withheld from Aamir Khan that the Karnataka Medical Council has thoroughly investigated the case and found no evidence of any negligence on the part of the doctors.

I am sure Mr. Rai has used his theatrical skills to convince Aamir Khan and his team about his false allegations. I am also confident that Aamir Khan will realize the lapse his research team has done once all the facts are provided to him.

We, The Condemned. - Reply to SMJ

Share it
We, The Condemned.

Dear Aamir Khan,

I saw your show on the status of medical
healthcare in India today. It highlighted to society the concern that it should
have about the healthcare that it receives at the hands of brutally dishonest
and unethical doctors a.k.a ‘maut ke saudaagar’.

I understand
that there are sections of the medical fraternity that behave in ways that do
not bring glory to the profession. I understand that your aim in this episode,
and on the show, as a whole, is to make society aware of the issues that plague
India, and help it to move towards a better place.

I also
understand that you may have, unfortunately, done the exact opposite, at least
with this episode.

tell you why.

You started
the show with the story of a diabetic losing his toe.(You did not tell us that
he is diabetic, but the footwear he was wearing hinted at that.) This gentleman
was retrospectively told about the
possibility of medical management of his toe infection. I will present to you a
few statistics about diabetic foot disease (yes, Indian doctors also are aware
of research methodology, like your famed “research” team). The foot ulcer
incidence rates range between 2% and 10% among patients with diabetes mellitus.
The age adjusted annual incidence for non traumatic lower limb amputations in
diabetic persons ranges from 2.1 to 13.7 per 1000 persons (as per a study
published in the Journal of American College of Surgeons in 1996). India has
approximately 50.8 diabetic patients, according to the world diabetes
foundation. Assuming that Indian doctors are competent enough to treat diabetes
as well as their counterparts in the US, (where, presumably, you will be going
for your medical treatment, as you proudly proclaimed that you will not undergo
any medical treatment in India) that translates to about 5 million Indians
having a chance of developing a foot ulcer, and about 500 thousand Indians needing
lower limb amputation. Each of those 5 million people who develop the foot
ulcer, will remember your episode, and will opt for medical treatment, which,
if it fails to work (which it will, Mr. Khan, in a more than a few cases), will
convert a toe amputation into a below knee or above knee amputation, or even
death, depending upon how long the patient chooses to be on medical therapy.

have just condemned 5 million Indians to uncertainty, loss of limb more than
what would have been, or even death.

there was a chat about “unnecessary” Kidney transplants. Here are a few facts,
Aamir. In the United States, the general
hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis populations have 2 hospital admissions per
patient per year; patients who have a renal transplant have an average of 1
hospital admission per year. Additionally, patients with ESRD( End Stage Renal Disease) who undergo renal
transplantation survive longer than those on chronic dialysis. The
mortality rates associated with hemodialysis are striking and indicate that the
life expectancy of patients entering into hemodialysis is markedly shortened.
In 2003, over 69,000 dialysis patients enrolled in the ESRD program died
(annual adjusted mortality rate of 210.7 per 1000 patient-years at risk for the
dialysis population, which represents a 14% decrease since peaking at 244.5 per
1000 patient-years in 1988). The highest mortality rate is within the first 6
months of initiating dialysis. Mortality then tends to improve over the next 6
months, before increasing gradually over the next 4 years. The 5-year survival rate for a patient undergoing chronic dialysis in
the United States is approximately 35%, and approximately 25% in patients with
diabetes. Though there are no nationwide records to calculate the incidence
of ESRD in India, a population based study done in Bhopal showed the average annual crude and age-adjusted
incidence rates for the period were 151 and 229 per million population, respectively.
Extrapolating this data to the population of India, we have 200 thousand Indians
with ESRD. Again, if you are willing to believe that Indian doctors are
as competent as their western counterparts, only 25 percent of these will live
beyond 5 years without a transplant.

You have
just condemned 150 thousand Indians to uncertainty, indignity and death.

you spoke about doctors asking for “unnecessary” tests, and even went to the
extent of describing a “basin” test in jest.

In doing so, you condemned every
clinical practitioner in the country to a lifetime of uncertainty about how his
patients will react to his demand for justified investigations which will
undoubtedly save the patient’s life.

You spoke about doctors buying
medical degrees for 40-50 lakh rupees. Here are some figures for you. In 2011,
2,21,867 students appeared for an entrance examination into medicine called the
All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT). They were competing for 1887 medical seats
in government colleges. After listening to your show, every doctor who has
worked tirelessly and endlessly to get into the profession, and inspite of ALL
odds, qualify as a doctor, will be viewed with suspicion by his society, as
someone who may have “bought” his degree.

You have condemned me, and
thousands, perhaps lakhs of young and upcoming doctors like me, who struggled
among 2,21,867 people to get those 1887 seats, to a lifetime of suspicion and ignominy.

You then went on to chat with a
gentleman from Wales about how he had to flee India due to rampant malpractice.
In doing so, you have encouraged thousands of young Indian minds into falsely
believing that the west is the destination where they will have a clean,
ethical and well paying job. You have just doubled the brain-drain
singlehandedly, Mr. Khan. And you have condemned every Indian to losing the
best minds they could have had treating them in India.

I could go on with this
dissection of your well researched show Aamir, but I just want to end this
letter with a story. There is a man, who was educated in rural India, came to a
city with next to nothing, practiced as an honest doctor there for 30 odd
years, refused to give or accept commissions or cuts, stayed simple, worked
hard, gave his family a decent life.

Today, you have condemned him to
being seen as a criminal in the eyes of the same people he served.


The Condemned.


Message to AMIRKHAN - READ AND SHARE ALL MEDICOS N DOCTORS. Dear Mr. Amir Khah, “NOT ALL DOCTORS ARE GREEDY” “THERE IS NO PROFESSION THAT IS ABSOLUTELY CLEAN” “DOCTORS ARE OBLIGED TO SERVE BY CHOICE, NOT BY COMPULSION” Sir, I have been a big fan or your work, life and principles. I am also a fan of ‘Satyamev Jayate’. But I was shocked to see the episode on 27th May, 2012. You are an Icon. You should have thought well and done the homework before doing such a biased show. There are only two people in the film industry that are being taken seriously by the thinking class of society, You and Amitabh Bacchhan. So, when you give such a biased and one sided version of a story, it hurts. Speaking about such a thing on a “commercial” TV show is bad. (I am sure you have taken a big amount, only doctor are supposed to do charity and social work, not actors!!! Right!) I want to highlight few important points here. And yes I am qualified to make observations as I am a medical student. 1. Your guests and audience (the words were almost put in their mouth) said that private colleges charge a capitation fee of 40 – 50 Lacs for MBBS, you should have also produced some evidence of such practice. Like you call a victim in all your episodes, why not here? And do the same story Engineering, Architecture, Law and MBA colleges, do you think they are clean? Why target doctors alone? 2. You said Since 2001, government opened 31 medical colleges and 106 private institutes were opened. – Please note that today in India, there are a total of 181 Private and 152 Govt Medical colleges. So the number is not as bad s you projected. Don’t project only the time period which suits your story. Either give a complete picture or do not give a picture at all! And also, please find out how many of these private colleges are owned by politicians? 95% of Private colleges in India are owned and run by politicians. It is a bloody nexus between politicians and MCI. The corruption by politicians is to blamed for the mess, not doctors!!! 3. One of your guest (Dr. Gulhati) said that doctors ask for 30% commission from Pharma companies to write their drugs. That is baseless, over-the-roof and sensationalizing the matter. That is as true as “Most Leading actors ask newcomers to sleep with them” or “Lawyers take money from both the sides in a legal battle” or “Most chartered accountants teach their clients how to save tax and also pass info to taxman on where his client saved tax”. I know all of you will shout “Where is the proof?”. So are doctors!!! I am not trying to sensationalize things as you did on your show by shading those fake tears, but just trying to project that allegations are easy to make. I know you will say that this was the opinion of our guest, and not yours. But you provided a platform for these fake allegations. 4. You compared the numbers of Licenses cancelled in England and in India. I must say your team is quite resourceful and please collect and compare following details also – a.Number of doctors beaten on duty by goons from various political outfits in government hospitals in UK and India in last 10 years, and also the number of people convicted for such crime. b.The Stipend (Salary a post-graduate trainee doctor/intern gets) or Salary and accommodation facilities provided to the doctors of the two countries. c.The duty hours and working conditions of the doctors of the two countries. d.The academic and research infrastructure being provided to the medical students. 5. You said that the most brilliant students who take up medicine, should take it only for service to mankind, they should go to other fields if they want to earn. Why? Are we living in imperialism? Are doctors not allowed to earn and spend a good life? You were asking Dr. Devi Shetty whether he can do humanitarian work and Earn at same time? This is like asking Amirkhan or Shahrukh-khan their income and generalizing it for every actor in the industry (Even junior artists). Sir, just as there are only few Khans and Kapoors, There are even fewer Devi Shetty and Naresh Trehan who run their chain of Multi-specialty hospitals spread all over the country. See what it takes to become a doctor and then give such “Geeta-Gyan”. a. 5 and half year of MBBS training and 1 more year of Compulsory Rural Internship at Rs. 15000 - 20000 per month. (Any other field eg. Engineering, Management, a person would become Postgraduate in this much time and start earning double the amount.) If one doesn’t study further, the pay at this step is 22,000 per month. b. After above 6 and half years of Graduation, 3 more years of Postgraduation, followed again by compulsory rural / Government job for 1 year or pay Rs. 25Lac bond. If one doesn’t study further, the pay at this step is 40,000 per month. c. After this above 10 and half years, 3 more years of Superspeciality, followed by 1 year of Govt job or a Bond of Rs. 2 Crore. And the seats are so few with tough competition, there tends to be a gap of a year or two in preparing for various entrance exams. 6. Why only Doctors are being forced to work in rural and government hospitals after their study? Why only we should pay government if we don’t want to do it? The rural/Govt sector needs help of Engineers, Lawyers, Chartered Accountants and MBAs also. Why aren’t the Engineers sent to rural areas to design and monitor roads and industrials development? Why aren’t the Lawyers forced to work as Public prosecutors before they can join some big foreign corporate firm? Why aren’t the CAs asked to work in CAG office and various other government financial sectors before joining Multinational Giants? Now government wants that doctors should not immigrate to other countries without asking them. Why? Are the IIT/IIM students stopped before they flee to foreign countries for big fat salaries? So, why us? What is it that government of society has done for doctors that they should repay? They bloody can’t even protect them from goons while on duty. 7. You say that doctors are writing unnecessary and costly medications. Do we decide the price of a drug? Do we manufacture or give license to drug manufacturers? Controlling the price of essential drugs is a government job. We are helpless. Sir, its easy to point fingers. We don’t say that all is well. But all is not well anywhere. Its a different thing creating awareness about dowry or female feticide. But its entirely different to comment on such a technical and complicated issue without getting into the details of it. You have maligned the entire medical fraternity. For every 10 doctors who are doing wrong, there are more than 1000 healers. You owe us an apology!!! This issue is not as simple as you think it is! Please show stories which are unbiased and straight-forward. You cannot do justice to such an issue, especially after charging a whooping amount for creating awareness!!! (We hear that Amir has charged 3 crores for episode of satyamevjayate in which he spreads the message to doctors that they should not make money and do social service!!! How sacred!!! I don’t know if its true, but well, it’s the season of allegations!) “We Doctors may be doing little social service, But at least we are not charging for it!” - Doctor
