Hari Mohan & Co.v. Kailashpati Pandev
1994(1) CPJ 344 (Bihar SCDRC)
It was alleged by the complainant that the injection given (Tidigesic) by the salesman of the medical shop was different from that prescribed by the doctor. The same was injected by a compounder to the complainants wife resulting in adverse reaction. It was held that it is also the duty of a literate person (an advocate in the present case) to ascertain that the injection supplied is the same as prescribed by the doctor or a different one. A compounder should also before injecting verify not only the dose but also whether the injection is same one as prescribed by the doctor. Complaint against salesman of the medical shop not allowed.
