Medico-Legal Tip of the day- 9th October 2017


Query-A 10 year old child reported in casualty with bruised marks in neck and MLC registration at one private/government hospital. Accompanying parent narrated that child had tried suicide because some quarrel in family. They went to a hospital which referred child to this hospital for treatment. No police man accompany with child. On examination child had strangulation marks in neck. Child belong to low socioeconomic strata. In such cases what is legal obligation of second hospital. Is there provision for second MLC registration? Please clarify.
Thanks

Answer- Please understand that MLC registration has been done in this case, no need to make fresh MLC if previous MLC record is there with parents. But treat this case as MLC and inform the police. Get child examined by surgeon and get ultrasound of neck to see neck edema. Ask neurologist/ forensic person to give opinion.
Obligation of second hospital is to inform police about this case.
