In a case of shocking medical negligence, a doctor at a government-run local health center at Mauda tehsil in Nagpur of Maharashtra last week abandoned family planning operations midway after his demand for tea was not fulfilled, reported Moneycontrol.

The report said eight women were scheduled for vasectomy on November 3. After performing surgery on four women and administering anaesthesia to the remaining four patients, the accused Dr Tejrang Bhalavi requested a cup of tea from the hospital staff. However, when his request was not fulfilled, he unexpectedly left the operation theatre without completing the remaining family planning surgeries.

The hospital administration immediately informed the district medical officer about the sudden departure of Dr Bhalavi without performing operations on the remaining female patients. The district medical officer dispatched another doctor to complete the remaining surgeries on the patients who had already been administered anaesthesia. 

After the incident came to light, the Nagpur district administration ordered a probe into the incident.

"I immediately called the health officer of Nagpur Zilla Parishad and asked him to send doctors for the remaining operations. I was told that he did not get tea so he left the operation. I have ordered an immediate investigation and a three-member committee has been formed for it. After the report comes, action will be taken against them. This is a very serious matter. If doctors are leaving such operations for the sake of tea, then action should be taken against such doctors under 304 of IPC,'' Sharma said.
