Fortis Jessa Ram Hospital discriminates EWS patients

Delhi High Court constituted Monitoring Committee of which I am a member inspected Fortis Jessa Ram Hospital, Karol Bagh, New Delhi on 09.03.2013 and found that the free ward was apparently like a make shift arrangement in the corridor of the Building. It is interesting to note that during the earlier inspection which was done about 6 months back, the monitoring committee pointed out in writing to the hospital authorities that such an arrangement is undesirable, discriminatory and in violation of Supreme Court and High Court orders and the free ward needs to be shifted in the Hall/Room immediately. The then M.S. had committed that the free ward would be shifted inside the Hall/Room shortly. The members of the Monitoring Committee were shocked to find that the free beds were still in the Corridor and the ews patients were occupying beds there.
