PRIVATE HOSPITAL ASKED TO REFUND MONEY TO POOR PATIENT
- Monitoring Committee of which I am a member inspected three private hospitals, namely, Delhi ENT Hospital & Research Centre, Jasola, Gujarmal Modi Hospital, Saket and Max Super Specialty Hospital, Saket on Monday November 08, 2011. The Committee noted that in ENT Hospital & Research Centre, a female patient whose family monthly income was less than Rs.6422/- was admitted in the paid category whereas all the three free beds were lying vacant. The Committee advised the Hospital that the concerned patient must be converted in free category and the money deposited (Rs.2500/-) be refunded. It was found that 6 free beds out of 10 were lying vacant in Gujarmal Modi Hospital whereas 26 free beds out of 30 were lying vacant in Max Super Specialty Hospital.
