A district consumer forum here has directed a private hospital to pay Rs 75, 000 towards medical expenses and compensation to a patient who underwent surgery under Aarogyasri scheme for failing to provide free treatment for a period of one year post surgery. K Venkatesh, admitted his son K Bhargava Ramudu at Times Hospital, Banjara Hills, on June14, 2010. The very next day, the boy was operated upon for 'Pancreatic Body and Tail Necrosis' by a consultant doctor under Aarogyasri and was discharged on June 23, 2010.

Within a month, Ramudu developed post-operative complications and was rushed to the hospital. “But the doctor who conducted the surgery was not with Times Hospital. As the discharge sheet stated the postoperative services would be given free for a period of one year from the date of operation and the surgeon who conducted the operation can be consulted, we tracked down the doctor and admitted our son in the hospital where the surgeon was working,“ said Venkatesh. He complained that due to lack of improvement in his son's condition he had to shift the boy to other hospitals and spend thousands of rupees.
