Dear member, private hospitals do not inform any government body particulars which you mentioned in point 1,2. You can not get such information as private hospitals are not covered under RTI Act.

 

But in the case of Ravneet Kaur Vs CMC Ludhiana, the Hon'ble Punjab & Haryana High Court held that any institution which is doing public service is amenable to Section 226/227 of Constitution of India. And Hon'ble Delhi High Court in the case of Kribhco in 2009/2010 had held that any "body" which is amenable to Article 226/227 of Constitution of India is a public authority under RTI Act 2005.

Unless you are a party (as patient or dependant on patient's relative) you can not get such information from Private Hospitals.

@manoj @Prasad - Thanks for the reply.

 

I am patient's relative - As private hospitals are not coming under RTI, I am just checking to get any source from the Governemt / Local Body, where hospitals submitting such records OR statistics.

 

If there is no such reporting needed from Hospitals/ Doctors to government / Helath Care Department how serious issue it is. In recent news, we may heard that a doctor done some number of family planning operation, may be it is because he is a Govt doctor?

As informed one can seek information of his own as consumer under CP Act from Hospital. However, please write one application in the name of patient seeking such details, stating that You wish to know the facilities and success rate of Hospitals, as you have a right to know as prospective/already a client. Let us take a chance.

      RTI reply blasts private hospitals

      Contrary to providing free beds and concessional rates, the 525 victims in the 7/11 serial bomb blasts last year have been charged medical expenses at commercial rates by private hospitals.
       
      This has come to light in a reply given by Western Railway to a Right to Information (RTI) application filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) former MP Dr Kirit Somaiya. However, speaking to DNA on Wednesday, official spokespersons for Jaslok and Hinduja hospitals denied the charge.
       
      The Railways made a payment of Rs3,16,42,234 crore for the victims who were treated at 21 major private hospitals across the city. The state and central governments had announced that they would foot the expenses of victims undergoing treatment at private hospitals.
       
      The hospitals were directed to forward medical bills of blast victims. According to the information given by the Western Railways, private hospitals were charging Rs500 to Rs800 for patients in their General Wards.
       
      The bed charges ranged from Rs600 to Rs750 per day, visiting charges of Interns and Resident Medical Officers ranged from Rs200 to Rs600 as well as other charges.
       
      Executive Director of Jaslok Hospital, Colonel (retired) BS Khemani denied the charge. He said that comatose patient Amit Singh was initially admitted to JJ Hospital and then shifted to Jaslok hospital on July 13 and given a free bed. “Singh and other patients were charged at subsidised rates,” he added.
       
      PD Hinduja Hospital sources said comatose patient Parag Sawant was provided with common category bed accommodation and no commercial rates were charged.
