Sir, An I.O rejected a request for a medical document of a patient - "requisition for laboratory investigation originated by a doctor/hospital". The charge pertains to refusal by C.O to draw blood from a patient.The rejection of document was on the grounds of breach of confidentiality between Doctor-Patient-Laboratory.The CO in his defense brief argued that he is part of the laboratory and had accessed the document while discharge of duty.The inquiry report ruled that such document shall be produced when a presiding judge of a court orders so in a trial and is an in admisible document in a departmental proceedings. How far is it right? is there any court judgements in this context? pls advise.
