1. Talk To the Doctor: Before filing a medical negligence complaint, which can be a time consuming process and can drain a lot of energy, it’s best to first talk to the doctor, to see if he can resolve the problem.
Sometimes, it may just be a simple misunderstanding, and it’s best to give the doctor the benefit of the doubt.
2. Take It Up With Higher Authorities: If you feel you are not being heard, then you can escalate this by talking to the hospital administration or the CEO. Make your complaint in writing, so it is documented, and they take it seriously.
3. Call a Seasoned Medical Malpractice Lawyer: If this doesn’t work, then you may want to engage a lawyer, so that they will take your letters seriously, and they can see you mean business.
4. Knock Other Doors: If this fails, then you have multiple avenues for redressal, such as the State Medical Council, the consumer dispute redressal forum; and the court. However, these are complex procedures and should be used only as a last resort.
