Health dept asked to give disability certificate to woman
The Permanent Lok Adalat (PLA) has directed the health department to issue a multiple disability certificate (MDC) to a resident of Rurki Kalan who has been trying to get it for her husband from the department.
Naib Kaur (40) alleged that the doctors harassed and misbehaved with her causing tension, instead of issuing the certificate.
PLA chairman PD Goel also issued notices to senior medical officer (SMO) and Fatehgarh Sahib civil hospital in-charge Dr Malkit Singh and Government Medical College and Rajindra Hospital, Patiala, associate professor Dr Harbag Singh asking them to justify the delay in issuing the disability certificate. The case is scheduled for hearing in the second week of November.
Kaur in her complaint to the PLA said her husband Major Singh (48) had suffered injuries, including to the head, which caused multiple disability. She had applied for the certificate at the civil hospital's suwidha centre on August 25, 2014, in order to apply for compensation at the Accident Claims Tribunal. However, the civil hospital authorities referred the couple to the Rajindra hospital in Patiala on August 27, 2014, she said. But, Dr Harbag Singh at the hospital asked them to come after April 25, 2015, for evaluation of the disability.
