Charitable hospitals exhibit negligence in the treatment of the poor

To ensure that the poor and weaker sections of the people are well-treated in the hospital, a number of facilities have been provided by the administration in numerous charitable hospitals, yet the majority of charity hospitals are exhibit sheer negligence in treating the underprivileged.  And the hospitals that are showing this negligent approach are Jaslok Hospital and Research Center, Gopichandra Piramal Memorial Hospital and Mhaskar Satika Home and General Nursing Home. Hence, to oppose such practice, other similar organisations including the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti have raised their voice. As a matter of fact, the committee has demanded action for which they have demanded to lodge a complaint to the charity commissioner Suresh Kamble and take action.

Moreover, the administration provides charitable hospitals with plots of land at comparatively low prices. Hence, it is mandatory for these hospitals to provide the poor people with 10 per cent of reservation of beds and free treatment as per the orders of the court. Further, if the annual income of a poor patient is less than 50 thousand and less than 1 lakh, the court mandates these hospitals to treat these patients at the discounted rates. Added this, it is mandatory for the hospital to give details of all the exemptions that are given by it on an information board. Yet, in spite of this, hospitals like Jaslok Hospital and Research Center, Gopikrishna Piramal Memorial Hospital and the Mhaskar Satika Home and General Nursing Home do not put up any information boards for the information of the patients.

On the other hand, Arvind Pansare of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti stated that if the said demands are not considered and met, his committee will have to go for a protest against these hospitals.
