Surgeon bound to be available to the patient post surgery or must make alternative arrangements
Following precautions have been advised by the Court:

-Providing adequate postoperative care is the responsibility of the surgeon who performs the surgery. In case the operating surgeon is unable to provide post surgery care, the operating surgeon must provide requisite written information about some other doctor who can be contacted by the patient in case of any problem

-Hospitals providing facilities to NGOs or other agencies to conduct free camps must first get a proper agreement executed clearly laying down the rights and duties of both the parties. The patient must also be duly intimated about such an agreement in writing

-Failure to perform requisite investigations to confirm the results of a surgery/procedure could be construed as negligence

-The discharge card must specifically record the patient's condition at discharge

-Surgery notes must be in detail.
