PLEASE SHARE THIS STORY - A 19 years old critical patient Sabia (BPL Card Holder) of Dehradun suffering from Lever Cancer has today approached the AIIMS for treatment. AIIMS referred her case to Safderjang Hospital on the ground that no bed was available. Safderjan Hospital told the patient that it has no objection to her admission but the kind of treatment, she required was not available in the Hospital. Ms. Ishrat Jahan who was accompanying the patient noticed my name and mobile number written on a Notice Board displayed in the AIIMS's premises and called me around 8 am today. She told me that the patient's condition was very critical and she has been taken back to AIIMS where she has been kept in the Emergency on temporary basis and the AIIMS has been telling them that the AIIMS could not provide bed to the patient. She was not at all aware of the provisions for free treatment in the identified private hospitals in Delhi for the EWS patients. I made her aware about the same and advised her to meet EWS Nodal Offier at AIIMS and request her to refer the patient to Max Super Specialty Hospital, Saket for treatment under EWS Category where the patient could get the best medical treatment all free of cost. I have just been told by Ms. Ishrat Jahan that the Nodal Officer at AIIMS has talked to his counter part at Max Super Specialty Hospital, Saket and the patient would be transfer tomorrow morning to Max Super Specialty Hospital, Saket.
