Dr D C Mahadik, a government doctor who performed surgeries in Punasa told TOI, “You cannot question the capability of doctors working 24/7 for patients. Given a chance, I am ready to conduct 1,000 surgeries.”
“As per MoHFW guidelines and quality assurance committee recommendations, doctors are allowed to conduct only 30 operations in a day to maintain quality and avoid any death or complications,” said Dr Pandit. The state is now taking a target-free approach, he said.
When asked about the surgeries, Khandwa civil surgeon Dr J S Awase claimed that he was unaware of the time gap between operations.
“The surgeries were conducted at three places. I will have to ask how much interval there was between two operations,” said Dr Awase
