Unpaid hospital bills
A recent case in which a patient died after a heart attack and kidney failure at Hiranandani Hospital in Powai, Mumbai, has raised several ethical issues. The patient was in the hospital for one month. The bill came to Rs 7.3 lakh. When he died, the hospital refused to hand over the body to the family unless the bill was cleared. There was a shortfall of about Rs 4 lakh.
There are currently no refbacks.
