Hospital Services in India

The sector of India Hospitals and the healthcare, which according to the reports, has faced the key challenges of the time. Over 5percent of the country’s GDP is being spent on the healthcare and hospital services of the country. The public health care is not only weak but also inefficient and under-utilized. Whereas the private healthcare and hospital sector is quite dominant and it adds up to 80 percent of the total income from health care.

The most important features of the healthcare and hospital services are:

  • In the health care system the hospitals are the most important part. The inpatient and outpatient services support he researches and the training of the health workers.
  • The corporate chain of hospitals in the towns and the cities provide the tertiary healthcare services. The rate is significantly lower than the most developed economies.
  • Though there is a rise in income and betterment of health insurance is available the hospital services are still facing a number of challenges.
  • The most important drawback of this service industry is the shortage of trained personnel such as doctors, nurses, healthcare administrators, technicians etc. this shortage leads to immense opportunity for people to establish training and educational centers in this respective field.
  • The service providers also come up with promises of high quality of health care and hospital services as majority of the hospitals are private and unregulated.
  • At present the outlook of the hospitals are positive in service with innovative technologies such as delivery service, increment in affordability, improved quality of service and support of policy of government; and these factors are leading to the growth of the sector.

Devastation because my husband was admitted to "Apollo Hostpials" Bangalore. On 20th May 10 my husband complaint of severe stomach ache was admitted to Apollo he was fine untill 22nd he was rushed to ICU, saying he had Multiple organ dysfunction due to Pancreatitis. He was being treated with IV Fluids, dialysis and ventilator. on the 25th he was moved to an isolation where no one attended him and they say he had extrubated the ventilator support on his own and he had a cardiac arrest he passed away. SInce the brain was not dead completely for the next 8 days the hospital kept saying he is alive and they are treating him. They were treating the dead patient. He didn't die of the disease but due to the lapse from the hosptial. My questions: 1. Patient went normal to the hospital was normal for two days, why was the complication not anticipated and right treatment not give. 2. After paying 6.25 lacks we get to know that there was no nurse beside the patient while he extrubated the tube. 3. My husbands age is 33 years, I have a two year old daughter, these people have no human sympathy, treating patients like comoddities. Can someone get justice to me. Life,,,,,,,,,,,I have lost
