  • Should private hospitals be asked to reserve 20% beds for poor?

    Even as state-run hospitals have failed to provide proper services, guardian minister of Nagpur, Chandrashekhar Bawankule, had suggested that private hospitals should share the patient load by reserving 20% beds for poor. Is this move practical and justified?

    I live in Mumbai and yes there are around certain number of beds even in the Seven Hills hospital for Below poverty line patients to treat them . Here in Mumbai as faras I know there are around 10 percent beds for the poor people.
    But a simple step taken by each and every one to avoid illness should be by washing hands before eating anything and by using water filter at homes , that would keep the germs and diseases away and help to have healthy body.

      It is a very good suggestion, because with growing popularity of medical field not just in terms of becoming a doctor but also others like medicines, labs, expenses on surgeries are also touching skies.
      With the use of such amenities the private hospitals are earning very good reputation along with revenues, hence good doctors also can be found at such private hospitals.
      The govt. run hospitals fail to provide good amenities as well as proper treatment hence it becomes very difficult for the poor people to take proper treatments and they can hardly even try to go and get treated at private hospitals.
      India, even now at some of the rural areas there are no hospitals and they have to travel all the way to cities for treatments. Such poor people coming from rural areas are left in vain to get treated properly, hence the private hospitals can reserve 20% beds so that poor people can avail the best and advanced treatments.
