Hospital - Line of Treatment - Basic Standardisation

There should be standards published to consumers as to what are the standard lines of treatment in case of various diseases, viral, bacterial fever, influenza, dengue, swine, chickenguniya, jaundice, malaria and many others. These standard treatments along with symptoms, etc should be published in form of an easy to understand booklet, given to every patient who gets admitted for such common diseases.

Not sure if BIS has where with all to do this or should I write this in your health circle but must be taken up. From consumer perspective it really empowers them in multiple ways who otherwise are at doctors mercy. more

Has any one seen what is the cost to prepare a MBBS/MD/DM?Where from this money will come specially if one is in the private colleges.When parents spend such a huge amount where from it will be recovered?Specially after reservation policy a brilliant candidate in open catagary will not be able to get admission in Govt College,where as a very inferior reserved catagary will get admission. more

A Real Awakening is the need of the Hour. Modern Youngsters who take up Medicines as a profession do so not with the intent to serve but to earn a living. A very old school time friend of mine serving in Long Island(USA) as Lung Specialist - has a group of Doctors who every Summer pool resources - buy medical supplies at subsidized rates and then set up 2-3 days Medical Camps in remote villages of African Countries and treat patients Free of Cost. This is called Service to humanity. Outside AIIMS & Safdarjung Hospital - Afternoon (between 12:00 Noon to 2:30 p.m.) and Night ( 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 pm) some or other good Samaritan always sets up Bhandara to feed the poor...this is also a service to humanity besides the Gurudwara Langars which are everyday fare to feed the poor. Doctors can take a cue from these people...pool resources to form a Poly-Clinic and with a bit of Help from State Government create much needed New Hospitals to cater to growing population. Just One Step by someone can create a way for others to follow. more  
It is said that don't kill the thief but his mother so that she does give
birth to more thieves. If the Central & State governments take bold
steps to control population, many socio-economic problems will
disappear. In every city, people in large numbers stand in queues
outside hospitals/temples to get free food. Many of such people are earning around Rs.500/- daily but still prefer free food. Even the Govt. give
free food grains to well off people including Govt. employees
as the tax payers comes for free and can be misused whimsically. more  
Ms. Sarita, My friend Jayah Sharma suggests as follows: I appreciate your concern and suggestions but I am not in total agreement. Providing health treatment is not an easy job. If the standards suggested are so workable then the patients would go by the booklet and would not like to visit hospitals. It will further encourage non prescription and across the counter sales of medicines. Because of the different chemistry and physiology of individual patients, standardization of treatment can not be one that fit everyone. My friend gives the example of her father who is a patient of asthma. He is allergic to medicines except for paracetamol. He can not follow a standard line of treatment. more  
There are standard treatment protocols estabbf for most of the common and not so common health issues which doctors generally follow for positive outcome. They have to do this for patients health as well as their reputation. Some doctors and hospitals, only sex it up for their wealth with some unwanted tests, prolonging hospital stay or with not so required procedures or implants or costly implants. When insurers are involved they generally oversee it but not all the times when patient eligibility is high and/or due to nexus between TPA and hospital.
It is difficult for the patient or caregiver to intervene or even government can't do anything. But second or third opinion will definitely help. Also our consumer court should work more proactively more
