Q: On what grounds can a medical practitioner refuse to attend a patient?
By: Dr. Subhash K., 30-Aug-2021, 11:32 am
A1. Refusal can be done on the grounds :
1. When the Doctor finds another practitioner in attendance. 2. The doctor's fees remain unpaid despite notice. 3. When the patient persists in abuse of intoxicants or poisons. 4. When the patient uses other remedies other than those prescribed by the doctor. 5. When the prescribed treatment is not followed persistently. 6. When other practitioner is consulted without the doctor's knowledge.
7. When the doctor himself is suffering from an illness requiring rest in house.

A1. If a patient does not comply with the suggestion or advice given by the doctor regarding his management, patient is responsible for the final outcome - either partially or fully e.g. not taking prescribed treatment, not keeping follow up, non-compliance about investigations etc. However, it is advisable to write full instructions on prescription paper, discharge card, etc. Just like informed consent, it is important to not down INFORMED DENIAL.
