1698 : The rip off specialists




We were housed at Fortis Hospitals for the past 9 days. I must say that modern hospitals are the most mercenary types – and are in urgent need of some soul searching.

Fortis in Mulund has a great ICU, some good doctors, but general wards, out patient and the nurses leave so much to be desired.

The nurses are in the ratio of 3 to 50 beds. If thats not appalling enough, spare a thought for the fact that most of these 50 beds are occupied and almost all of these have patients with one or the other serious ailments.

These hospitals charge for everything from spirit, handwash, gauge and even the old traditional mercury thermometer. Would these not make more sense, if they were shared. Who uses a bale of cotton or a whole wrap of gauge.

These are charged at MRP. In a day 5 doctors visit us, and each visit is charged – all he comes and asks us – “all ok?” and then runs off.

I felt as if I was in a shop where every inch of skin is on sale. And to believe these buggers all started with a Hippocrates oath Sad smile

Sad state of affairs Sad smile
