Doctor Walks Out Mid-Surger After Demands Aren’t Met

On November 3, an Indian surgeon stormed out of an operating room in a huff because no one had brought him tea.

Mauda tehsil in Nagpur is home to a government-run health center where the inappropriate action occurred. According to reports, Dr. Tejrang Bhalavi requested his staff bring him a cup of tea during surgery. When no tea arrived, Bhalavi left the operating room and abandoned his day’s medical duties.

The hospital management called the district medical officer in reaction to the doctor’s unexpected departure. The anesthetized patient was subsequently transferred to the care of another surgeon.

Dr. Bhalavi had completed half of the scheduled female vasectomy procedures for the day.

According to Soumya Sharma, CEO of Nagpur Zilla Parishad, an inquiry has been launched.

Sharma said, “Action will be taken against him; this is not a laughing situation.” Sharma said that 304 of the Indian Penal Code should be used to prosecute physicians who abandon procedures to get tea.

After the unexpected absence, hospital management contacted the district medical officer for help, and the officer dispatched another doctor to perform the work.

The local government quickly investigated the event. The inquiry is being handled by a committee of three at the moment.

A cancer patient in the United States is suing the facility where he was treated, and the doctors who performed the appendectomy because they wrongly claimed the wrong organ had been removed.

George Piano, 72, went to get his appendix removed at the University of Washington Medical Centre in December 2022.

He alleges that after persistent agony, scans revealed that his big intestine had been surgically removed rather than his appendix.

Surgeons make big bucks for a reason. It is a high-pressure environment, and bad behavior and negligence have no place in the medical field.
