  • S.B.
    Tiwari v.Dr.G. Panavadhyani

    1996(1) CPJ 301 (NC)

      

    The complainant went to Dr. G.
    Panavadhyani, a dentist for extraction
    of his tooth, following which he had
    over-bleeding and headache. He alleged
    that the dentist extracted his tooth
    without taking BP and other
    precautions, due to which he had
    suffered. The State Commission came to
    the conclusion that there was no
    deficiency on part of the dentist on 3
    counts.  Whereas the
    complainant was known hypertensive, he
    deposed before the Commission that he
    had not taken any medicine for blood
    pressure before extraction. The
    opposite party was consistent in his
    averments that blood pressure was
    taken and was found to be 130/90;the
    complainant did not adduce adequate
    evidence to show that he went
    alongwith his wife to the opposite
    party on 15.12.91 complaining about
    the over-bleeding and that the
    opposite party sent them back home
    without finding out the reason for the
    over bleeding and curing it; there was
    no evidence to link the headache with
    the extraction; from the medical
    certificate of Ashok Nursing Home,
    where the complainant was admitted on
    15.12.91, there was no complaint of
    headache then and headache was noticed
    only on 19.12.91. There was thus a gap
    of time between extraction and
    development of headache; further the
    Discharge Summary Slip of Sri Balaji
    Hospital indicated that the headache
    was probably due to the heamorrhage
    and hypertension. It was a case of
    alcohol dependence with organic brain
    syndrome.The National Commission
    upheld the finding of the State
    Commission and dismissed the appeal.
