Johnson and Johnson found guilty of giving faulty hip implants
Johnson and Johnson has been found guilty of giving faulty hip implants to at least 20 Indian patients.
An 11-member committee set up by the health ministry has found that 22 patients were affected by the faulty hip implants and they had to undergo corrective surgeries again.
It was found by the investigating panel that some patients had to go through a third surgery as well.
This can lead to fines imposed on the company.
Johnson and Johnson may be ordered to pay at least Rs 20 lakh in compensation to each of the 22 patients affected.
Johnson and Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit has been asked by a court in the USA to pay $247 million to six patients.
