A man in Gujarat died four months after his doctor removed his left kidney instead of the stones by mistake when he was hospitalised to Ahmedabad's KMG General Hospital. The Gujarat State Consumer Dispute Redress Commission has now ordered the hospital to compensate the patient's family in the amount of Rs.11.23 lakhs, as the hospital was deemed personally accountable by the consumer court for failing to provide adequate patient care.
