ULTRA COMMERCILIZATION OF MEDICAL SECTOR IN INDIA

Few days back there is news in media and newspaper that one of MAX HOSPITAL in Delhi WRONGLY DECLARED A LIVE BABY DEAD. A BIG FAILURE, NOT A FAILURE BUT A CRIME. For this crime guilty must be punished with strictest punishment as per legal norms and hospital control and management should be transferred to Government with immediate effect. The guilty Doctor and medical staff license must be cancelled immediately and a legal case must be initiated against them for their negligence and commercialization.

The second case is of FORTIS hospital where a child undergoing treatment of dengue died and hospital handed over a bill of Rs.17-18 lakhs to victim’s family. Hospital used 2700 globes and 660 syringes as per the news reported.  Even Hon’ble Court raised question over this type of treatment.

In another incident Medanta hospital also charges Rs.17 lakh (Approx.) a 7 years old patient for 22 days. The child died after being discharged due to lack of funds. There are so many other unreported medical cases where wrong doings of private hospitals, medical staff not comes to limelight as the victim is poor and common men and on the basis of their money and network private hospital able to hide their mistake and negligence.

IT IS A QUESTION MARK ON THE QUALITY OF SERVICES OFFERED BY THESE TOP HOSPITALS.

There is also news in e-media that reported about the medical test carried out by Doctors in India is almost 66% higher than required. It is definitely for the purpose of their personal profits and against moral values of Medical Services.
Every private hospital generally has a medicine shop inside their campus and the medicine mentioned by hospital/doctor will be available only on that shop. There is no need to mention here that prices of that particular medicine with same salt is 5 to 10 times higher than market prices. No Doctor/Hospital prescribes medicines which are available commonly at affordable prices.

A story on social media said that in coming years the normal level of sugar may be changed to 70-100 from 80-120 as Drug companies wants to increase sale of sugar medicines.

The reason behind above is non-availability of Proper / Timely Government medical facilities as the government hospitals are already too much crowded and much negligence and misbehavior of government employees towards patients forces them to move to private hospitals for treatment.

I think these top most private social institutions has turned into a vampire who instead of giving benefits to society actually harassing, damaging, killing social values, humanity, etc.

A NOBLE FIELD OF SERVICE IS ULTRA COMMERCIALIZED PROFITABLE BUSINESS WHICH MULTIPLIES YOUR INVESTMENT LIKE ANYTHING.
