Extra Caution advised when a patient is referred to a facility/hospital owned by the referring doctor
-There must be absolutely no pressure or coercion on the patient to get himself or herself admitted to that particular hospital or facility

-In case a patient has to be admitted or referred to a hospital, all the hospitals having the requisite infrastructure must be advised and the final choice must be left to the patient. Duly record this fact enumerating all the hospitals that have been advised and the choice of the patient

-Surgeons can leave the patient post-surgery only after the patient has clinically stabilised

-Inordinate delay on the part of surgeons in attending to post-surgery complications is negligence

-It is advisable to defer an elective procedure/surgery rather than performing it, if there is even an iota of doubt on the fitness of the patient. Procuring a fitness certificate from the physician must be a mandatory exercise in all such cases

-Hospitals and nursing homes undertaking to treat a patient or conduct any surgery must anticipate all future complications and keep relevant consultants ready
