Ventilators are very less in hospitals in my area.even some big private hospitals with 100 beds have only one ventilator and they charge hourly for that.if some patient remains on ventilator for 10 days he pays more then total value of ventilator.So yaa they are more expensive then gold.Doctors are god,hospitals are temples.God demands commission in everything.they have commission in medition they prescribe(most doctors have their own pharmacy)many doctors takes upto 80% commission from labs so manytime labs don't^^ What exactly is going on!!?? Are the ventilators in India made of gold?
Hospitals are charging 10-15K on PPE everyday, however I have seen enough photographs of those PPEs, they should cost less than 5 EUR.
What exactly are they charging so much for? ECMO is possibly new in Indian healthcare system, but in Europe/ US it was not that uncommon. Cardiac surgeons/ intensivists were using it for years. Yes, it's a very expensive piece of equipment. Using it properly needs significant amount of training, and the operators should be well compensated ( as it requires very close monitoring) but how much should that be? How much are they charging for the venous tube placements?
even tests sample and throws in wash basin and prepares a false report.if they refers patient to another doctor they will get commission from that doctor for sending a patient to him.First thing doctors do when patient arrives they writes tests for everything whether
these tests are helpful in illness or not they want their money all they care for.One dr(god) wrote MRI test for alcohol addicted patient who came to hospital to get rid of alcohol habit.One hospital in Delhi admitted a person who was already dead and had death certificate
issued 6 hours before admission to hospital.They kept him on ventilator for two days then declared him dead.When they asked for bill person's relative gave them death certificate and there was media too.Dead person kins and media received heavy amount to keep their mouth shut.it was a trap from start planned by a media person.Now in the name of pandemic hospitals don't allow anyone inside they are doing what they want,how much they want no one to stop them.Saw a bill of corona positive patient exceeding 3.5 lakhs.his pharmacy bill was 600 rs rest was ppe kit,bed charge and doctors visiting fee.
