Medical treatment & malpractices

From my own experience I expose following practices :
1) It is customers' choice & right whether to purchase medicines on line or from pharmacists. 2) Pharmacists are looting customers with commission up to 50 %. 3) Ear drops are required to be stored at temperature up to 26 degree centigrade but they were found not keeping them in refrigerators. After checking 4/5 shops I have to buy prescribed drops from hospital pharmacist.
4)Dates of manufacture & expiry are so small that consumer cannot read them.
5) Many medicine sellers run their shops with hired licenses from actual license holders.
6) Many pharmacists sell fake drugs playing with life of patients.
7) Many pharmacists sell expired drugs carrying re-printred expiry dates playing with life of patients.
8) Many doctors prescribe a large number of drugs acting against each other.
9) Hospitals open their own dispensaries to loot customers.
10) Studying use & side effects of medicines on internet patients or their caretakers will find many medicines not suitable for patients.
11) Retired elderly patients admitted in biggies and renowned hospitals are subjected to many procedures to inflate bills charged from customers or government paymasters
12) Biggies and renowned hospitals hire/maintain bouncers as guards (Yamdoots) to check near and dear ones from visiting, attending and enquiring welfare/progress of the
patients. Relatives are kept in dark about patient's status & even do not know what hospital doctors doing to the patients in the ICU/CCU.
13) Quacks freely run their business in medicines.
1) Seriously ill organ donors should be treated on priority in Government hospitals so that they recover with genuine treatment and not fall prey to greedy private hospitals and private doctors and in event of death their organs can be used in time for the needy.
15) There is wide spread practice in private hospitals not to discharge patients in time & prolong their stay in hospital for room rents. Also, there is wide spread practice in private hospitals to discharge them earlier with business angle to accommodate incoming serious patient. more

Private hospitals admit the patients who are about to die or even dead and keep the body for 3-4 weeks. The bill amount is always in millions.
They raise maximum bills where the reimbursement in to be done by the
Govt. institutions/medi Insurance or the guardians of patient are rich.
Since the tax payers money is being misused, the Govt. must fix limit of
reimbursement for every person - be it employee or neta and the treatment should be restricted to Govt. hospitals. If any body wants
to get treatment from private/foreign hospital, he should pay from his
pocket as is done by a common man. This will solve many unfair practices prevalent to private hospitals. The Govt. Hospitals/Doctors who refer the patients to private hospitals also get huge commission. Many
politicians/Govt. employees do not know what is sarkari paisa and
hence try to loot/misuse as much as possible. This mind set need to be
reversed in the interest of Nation. more  
While fixing MRP of medicines/allied things,a knowledgeable govt officer should be there and with a say and not simply dummy. more  
Prescribing unnecessary medicines and various tests even when the patients are suffering from seasonal diseases has become a common practice only to earn handsome commission from the medicines manufacturers and the diagnostic centres. Even the doctors do have tie-up arrangements with the private hospitals and to share in the hospitals' income, they recommend for hospitalisation, though not required.

The private hospitals are, practically, engaged in robbing the patients and their kith & kin once admission is done. The hospital authorities are engaged in all kind of immoral & dishonest practices to inflate the bills of their indoor patients pushing back their (patients) proper treatment and early recovery. more  
You can make a complaint to the DRUG CONTROLER of your STATE more  
all very true and is such malpractices are kept like they are because the so called Govt does not want to change them into an efficient patient and cost friendly medicare system. For the Govt it is Rocket science and the pharma companies fund political parties. Who pays for all the helicopter rides of all politicians? They are the true traitors of the nation. Politics is in every nation but they pride themselves in Nation first. That is why they are where they are and we are where we are!!! more
