Private hospitals : a case of ‘Physician, heal thyself’?

Dr. Sunil Nandraj
A patient died in a reputed private allopathic hospital in Mumbai due to a wrong blood type administered during transfusion by an homeopathic doctor. This death led to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) being filed in the Bombay High Court raising issues with regard to the quality of care provided by private hospitals, the type of staff employed, regulation and monitoring systems and the role of regulating bodies.
