What you'll learn

Unnecessary consultations should be avoided. However, in case of serious illness and in doubtful or difficult conditions, the physician should request a consultation, but under any circumstances, such consultation should be justifiable and in the interest of the patient only and not for any other consideration. Consulting pathologists /radiologists or asking for any other diagnostic Lab investigation should be done judiciously and not in a routine manner. In every consultation, the benefit to the patient is of foremost importance. read more »»

All physicians engaged in the case should be frank with the patient and his attendants. Utmost punctuality should be observed by a physician in making themselves available for consultations. All statements to the patient or his representatives should take place in the presence of the consulting physicians, except as otherwise agreed upon. The disclosure of the opinion to the patient or his relatives or friends shall rest with the medical attendant.

Differences of opinion should not be divulged unnecessarily but when there is an irreconcilable difference of opinion the circumstances should be frankly and impartially explained to the patient or his relatives or friends. It would be opened to them to seek further advice as they so desire.

No decision should restrain the attending physician from making such subsequent variations in the treatment if any unexpected change occurs, but at the next consultation, reasons for the variations should be discussed/ explained. The same privilege, with its obligations, belongs to the consultant when sent for in an emergency during the absence of an attending physician. The attending physician may prescribe medicine at any time for the patient, whereas the consultant may prescribe only in case of emergency or as an expert when called for.
