I have made an Injury report to the patient who came to my clinic a week ago. Patient was having fracture so I made the Injury according to that as Grievous Injury. Now the police is saying that this injury report is not valid and he is blaming me why I did not refer the patient to Government hospital. I want to get your advice that is it necessary to send the patient to Goverment Hospital if I can treat the patient. I am a MBBS Doctor with fully registered with MCI.

Dear Dr. Priyadarsha Gupta,

Every doctor have duty to start the treatment of the patient as soon as patient arrives at his clinic or hospital.In case of fracture it is not necessary to inform the police before starting the treatment, but if you are making a injury report then your duty starts towards the police. The injury report must be made in the prescribed format after informing the police, not doing this will attract your liability under section-201 Indian Penal Code.

So inform the police in future before making injury report, as injury report is an evidence in the court of law.

With Regards
ADITYA RAJESHWAR

Whenever any medico-legal case attends any registered medical profession, the medical officer working should inform the Duty Constable, name, age, sex of the patient and put and time of occurrence from the incident, and really should start the required medical treatment and management of the individual. It will likely be the duty from the Constable on duty to inform the concerned Police Station or higher police functionaries for further action. out for the hospitals to cope with medicolegal cases is only going to apply to those cases brought by law enforcement.

The medico-legal cases coming to any qualified medical practitioner of their own won't be denied the treatment by the doctor in which the case reports, nor the situation will be known other hospital be make the incident has took place the area which belongs to the zone associated with a other hospital.
