Healthcare Consumer Rules

On the same lines as ecommerce, consumer ministry must also make rules for healthcare industry.

Too much is falling through the cracks as far as healthcare goes. Negligence, Misleading Patients, Hospitals billing at obnoxious rates and patients being upsold or in some cases forced to buy certain products and services under the guise of “needed” “best” “emergency situation” etc.

I urge all members of this community to share their thoughts. more

Its quite tricky to deal with this subject. However, it would be certainly good that Government focuses on making Government/local bodies Hospitals excellent in its services so that excellent treatment is available. There can be two categories - one for those who cannot afford expensive treatment and the other paid services. more

Laws relating to health care need to be rewritten in our country, which should have severe punishable clauses for those medical practitioners who act against the principles of oath they took prior to undertaking the profession known to be 'noble'. more  
Very very true. Patients are really fleeced. it is often that doctors ,at their will, refuse to accept diagnostic reports even it is recent, and insists that same test has to be carried out again and place to be specified by him - it could be the establishment they are using or elsewhere of their choice. In that case they should reject the report in writing with reason. more  
Such doctors get hefty commission from the diagnostic centres. more  
yes, very much
cost is very high and being fooled also
thanks more
