|Though medical profession is one of the noblest professions, is not immune to negligence which at times results in death of patient or complete / partial impairment of limbs, or culminates into another misery. Thus, nowadays medical negligence has become one of the serious issues in India. In many cases incompetent or negligence by medical professionals puts in trouble to the innocent patients, which many times led to litigation. In the last few months of the year 2017, there were few sensational cases. In a shocking incident, premature twins were allegedly declared dead by doctors of Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh and handed over to their parents who realised that one of them was alive only when they were on their way to perform the last rites.
Thus in the light of these problems the present paper aims to analyze the concept of negligence in medical profession in the light of case laws and some statutory provisions (specially the Clinical Establishments Act, 2010) .|
