Re: [IAC#RG] Fleecing Hospitals and doctors

Please do not blame the doctors.Our society must be blame for such issues.
People spends lot of money to get degree of MBBS, MD,MS etc.The Medicines producers run after these doctors for prescribing the medicines and they reward them handsomely.
There is common saying that Chemists are making more profit.It may be there.Again they are selling the drugs prescribed by doctors and some medicines being advertised either on print media and on TELEVISION CHANNELS.No one ever objected.

Dear Shri Venkatraman,
Kindly accept our compliments for raising an important issue. Among many suggestions, I feel that there is a need to display prominently the grievance redressal mechanism inside and outside the hospital.  
Attached kindly find an extract on suggestions to improve public health services from our book "Towards Improving Governance" published in 2008. If you feel that its contents can help in improving the system, you can publicise its suggestions. Though there is nothing perfect, these can further be improved.
Thanks & regards,
S K Agarwal

It is sad  that many private hospitals , clinics and doctors have become the den of corruption.  Clinics & doctors  insist on cash payment of fees and do not give receipts. They have no norms in charging fees and have become an exploitative class. Almost all of them accumulate huge black money and evade taxes.
Obviously, central government and income tax department know that  almost all doctors do not pay taxes properly but governments do not care to question them. Hospitals , clinics and doctors very rarely receive tax violation notice and they are rarely raided by income tax department.
 The poor people are the worst sufferers. With most government hospitals having  poor standards and many government doctors are indifferent and private hospitals and doctors fleecing the patients, people from lower income group face desperate conditions when  they fall ill.
Government has the responsibility to discipline the hospitals and doctors and insist on norms for demanding fees. Hospitals, clinics and doctors should be directed to accept fees beyond Rs. 1000  only by cheque and they should give receipt for any fees received above Rs. 50
Time has come for people to protest effectively against the fleecing hospitals. Clinics and doctors.
