Abstract

Pursuit of medicine is rendering great service to the society, providing cure and care. Doctors who are considered as the integral part of this profession are the real torch bearers, contributing to it through their skill and proficiency. Increased commercialisation of the profession has brought an element of dehumanization in medical practice. A healthcare service has now been reduced to a commodity which in turn leads to a sea change in the doctor-patient relations. It is not surprising that most of the nursing homes are not even owned by doctors, but by businessmen and promoters. There are so many stringent legislations which can check malpractices but the procedures are long and of general apathy to control the menaces in the system, thus turning the healthy and blossoming society into a spurious, defective and adulterated one. These days’ practitioners are adopting deceitful methods to attract innocent patients and thereby procuring monetary benefits. Thus, the medical profession which is a noble profession is deteriorating to the level of an ordinary ‘business’. This is mainly due to the money mindedness of the doctor who have failed to abide by their Hippocratic oath. In this article, an effort has been made to deal with the current trends related to medical malpractices prevailing in the society. The study of recent medical malpractice trends in India is expected to be beneficial in addressing the emerging and growing complications related to medical malpractices.
