  7. CHENNAI: Most government hospitals in the city have fewer ventilators than sanctioned or necessary. Several ventilators are unused as they've not been maintained, as per data obtained through an RTI application by TOI. In Government Stanley Medical College Hospital, 22 of the 50 ventilators are not working. In Government General Hospital, 19 ventilators are not working. Government Royapettah Hospital and Government Kasturba Gandhi Hospital have only 13 ventilators each. Government Kilpauk Hospital did not reply to the RTI application. A ventilator is a life-saving equipment that helps a patient breathe. A hospital requires ventilators in its intensive care unit (ICU), intensive cardiac care unit (ICCU), TB ward, neonatal ICU and casualty ward. Chennai's government hospitals get about 150 critically ill patients every day, not just from the city but also from districts.

    Hindurao Hospital and traffic

    Hi All, I live very near to HinduRao Hospital in Malka Ganj, Delhi. The hospital has private roads, obviously for patients and their relatives. But this road is also a short cut to reach Rajpur Road and eventually Ring Road. So, alot of smart people use this road as this is alot quicker. Issue is in morning rush hour too many people uses internal roads of Malka Ganj to reach Ring Road via HinduRao Hospital and it feels like the whole traffic is diverting towards Malka Ganj and hospital. Simply means too much noise and traffic on small colony roads. This is a nuisance to local people like me and the a big issue for patients staying at the hospital. I thing this road should remain open for patients but access to Ring Road should be blocked. Anyone who knows about this, and can help me with this, please let me know. Thanx AB
  13. Please see attached RTI and RTI response from PIO. Hindu Rao CCU has a serios rat problem for at least over a year and yet no comprehensive pest control operations have been carried out. I once had a chance to film a few small videos and have placed them on YouTube: I have seen these rats and they are big, scarry and flithy and sometimes bite patients and patient attendants. My wife was once bitten by one these rats when she was taking care of her mom. She visited anti-rabies section of the hospital for vaccination and Hospital admistration is not aware of any such incident. CCU is for critically ill heart patients where several costly equipments are kept with lots of wires and the rats could cause a lot of damage. They won't let you enter the facility with your shoes on but rats rule the nights with possibly several types of bacteria/virus etc. Please review and suggest what should be my next action.

  16. Vasant Kunj Fortis has no water supply as reported by Jaya Shroff Bhalla in Hindustan Times, New Delhi, June 02, 2010 It is South Delhi’s biggest private hospital with more than 200 beds and is also accredited by the Quality Council of India (QCI). But Fortis Flt. Lt. Rajan Dhall Hospital in Vasant Kunj is ‘parched’. The hospital needs about 100 kilolitres per day but it doesn’t have a water permit from the Delhi Jal Board (DJB). The hospital gets eight water tankers every day to meet its demand ever since the Fortis group took over the hospital from the Rajan Dhall Charitable Trust in July 2006. The Delhi Development Authority had allotted land to the trust. The Delhi government claimed that it has no information whether they (the trust) sold the plot to Fortis. A Right to Information (RTI) application to the QCI has revealed that the water supplied to the private hospital is by way of tankers, as the hospital does not have a water permit. “It is ironic how the QCI, the healthcare quality regulation body, gave quality accreditation to the hospital that does not even have an approved building plan,” said Dr B.N.P. Singh, retired air force doctor who is now chief executive officer of Medivision Consultancy, a consortium of ex-defence officers. “Till the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) does not approve the building, the DJB cannot provide a fresh water supply,” he said. The hospital negated his claims. “The building plans for Fortis, Vasant Kunj, are sanctioned and approved by the appropriate authorities,” said Ranjana Smetacek, director, marketing and corporate communication, Fortis. She, however, did not give HT the specific dates as to when the licences were procured. “Our application with the Delhi Jal Board is pending. The water requirements of the hospital are being met by the daily procurement of water tankers. This water is then treated in the hospital’s state-of-the-art-water treatment plant before use,” she said. Dr Singh has sent a copy of the RTI reply to Sujatha Rao, Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, highlighting the “selective compromise” of the QCI where they have given NABH accreditation to Fortis without verifying the basic building completion documents. On March 19, Delhi Health Minister Kiran Walia had slapped the hospital with a show-cause notice for functioning without a completion certificate from the MCD.

  18. As reported by Biswajyoti Brahma of TNN in Times of India,New Delhi 08 July 2009. http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Daily/skins/TOINEW/navigator.asp?Daily=CAP&showST=true&login=default&pub=TOI PAYING A PRICE? SAI employee seeks information, lands in hospital A little over a month after he exercised his right to information to unearth ‘wrongdoings’ at his work place, a Sports Authority of India (SAI) official is left fearing for his life after an attack on him in Patiala on Monday night. On 26th May, SAI medical officer Sajib Nandi made 244 enquiries through an 18-page application to SAI’s principal information officer, SS Chhabra, who’s also the secretary of the organisation. Nandi’s letter sought information on different administrative aspects of the SAI ranging from appointment of staff to existing vigilance cases against senior officials. “I had gone to SAI office on Monday for some work. Later in the evening while I was coming back to my residence, somebody hit me on my head with a hard object. I could not see the attacker as the area was not well lighted, though street lights were there. I lost consciousness and some colleagues took me to hospital,” he told TOI on Tuesday from a hospital in Patiala, the city where he’s based. “I have suffered cuts on my eye orbits and on the nose. I have informed the police who are investigating the matter,” said Nandi, who’s on leave without pay after he decided not to comply with orders and go to Bangalore on transfer. He alleged that he was transferred about four years back for raising his voice against corruption in SAI.Nandi said his application seeking information under the Right to Information Act could have upset some “vested interests” in the organisation. “People know little about what’s going on in SAI. If the information is given, several corrupt officials could land in trouble. These people are trying to harass me.” Nandi said authorities are yet to respond to his TRI application even after more than a month. “I sent it to the Delhi office and they sent it to different SAI centres for necessary action. But I am yet to receive any information.” Senior SAI officials including the director general as well as Chhabra could not be reached for comments. Allegations of corruption is nothing new for SAI which gets crores of rupees from the government to spend on sports-related projects. An injured Sajib Nandi in Patiala

  20. City docs may need 2nd opinion for all surgeries as reported by Pushpa Narayan,TNN 11 Oct 2008 CHENNAI: Soon doctors in Chennai will have to seek a second opinion every time they decide to put the patient under the scalpel. In a bid to monitor and regulate healthcare, Chennai Corporation will dispatch letters to all hospitals by mid-October making it mandatory for them to seek external opinion before operating on a patient as well as videograph all surgeries and submit records in case of a patient's death. "It will be made mandatory from November this year. We will strengthen our reporting system further. We will also insist on an autopsy if we are not convinced with the reason for death given by the hospital," said Chennai Corporation chief health officer Dr P Kuganantham. "The death audit system will make the online issuing of death certificates more efficient. Nearly 120 deaths are registered in the city daily. Most of the time, we find it difficult to comprehend the reasons for death. We will now seek specific reasons such as infections and botched-up surgeries. Our death audit will give us all this information," he said. About 500 hospitals - government and private - are registered with Chennai Corporation for online entry of births and deaths. The department wants to make it mandatory for hospitals to videograph all surgical procedures and make them available under the Right to Information Act. The idea was mooted after a study by the civic body found several hospitals lacked qualified anaesthetists and trained nurses. Space and ventilation and sanitation facilities were also found to be below standards. Responses to the proposed supervision have been varied. Some like Dr T N Ravishankar, honorary secretary, Indian Medical Association, rejected it. "A surgeon would not want his opinion to be doubted. And what if the patient does not want a second opinion? If patients object to the procedure being videographed, should we force them? Who is going to bear the cost?" he said. Others like orthopaedic surgeon and Indian Journal Of Medical Ethics editor Dr George Thomas agreed with the authorities on some of the proposals.

  21. RTI reply blasts private hospitals Prashant Hamine Friday, June 15, 2007 09:44 IST 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.

  23. Loss of faith: CIC directs GB Pant Hospital to change surgeon of patient who filed RTI New Delhi, July 02: THE Central Information Commission (CIC) today asked GB Pant Hospital authorities to change the cardiac surgeon of a patient, who alleged she had lost faith in the doctor after he was irked by her RTI applications. The patient, Jameela, alleged that the surgeon was annoyed at her and her son, Javed, for filing RTI applications regarding the treatment. The CIC, noting that “a treatment of this nature requires complete trust between doctor and patient, which is entirely absent in the present case,” directed that Dr Satsangi be replaced. Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah also directed the CPIO Dr NR Laskar CMO to report back to the Commission within a week about the action taken in pursuance of the direction. In her complaint to the CIC, Jameela alleged that the surgeon had ordered his peon to throw her son out of his chamber and “sarcastically said that only the RTI would operate on his mother”. Jameela is a below poverty line BPL card holder, and had filed an RTI application with the state-run hospital hospital in May seeking information about the rules for free treatment of those belonging to BPL category. After undergoing angiography tests to detect a blockage in her arteries, Jameela wanted to know the exact date of her surgery for coronary arteries bypass grafting (CABG). The hospital authorities provided her the information sought but failed to ensure her free treatment, forcing her to make another RTI application. When Jameela’s son approached the surgeon concerned after getting the hospital’s response to her applications, he was allegedly humiliated, prompting her to approach the CIC with a complaint. Loss of faith: CIC directs GB Pant Hospital to change surgeon of patient who filed RTI This needs some action. Can members suggest how to use RTI and show the doctor and the hospital authorities that not only "RTI will operate on his mother" but it will operate on the doctors and hospital themselves too. I am willing to spend upto Rs 1000.00 just to ask question under RTI with these heartless, callous, careless people manning Government Hospitals ! Common members, we are supposed to guide and help people. Please, let's do something about this.

    Hospital waste still a horror story

    By Hindustan Times A RESPONSE to an RTI query has revealed what experts have been suspecting for long; most of Delhi's hazardous hospital waste is being indiscriminately burnt in incinerators without proper segregation. By doing that, cancer-causing fumes are being released in the Capital's air. In 1998, the Biomedical Waste (Management and Handling) Rules came about to make sure that through proper segregation by hospital stuff, most of the hazardous waste is autoclaved and only the bare minimum is incinerated - burnt in centralised chambers. An autoclave works like a pressure cooker. It pressure-heats biomedical wastes like syringes, tubes and blood packs, which are considered infectious and hazardous. The pressure sterilises the matter and eventually reduces it to a form that cannot be reused. The RTI response, however, shows the amount of incinerated waste is a whopping five times higher than what is autoclaved. "If incinerable waste by far outweighs autoclavable waste, it means hospitals and pathological laboratories are not being stringent about waste segregation," said Prashant Pastore, lead researcher of NGO Toxics Link, which has carried out a study based on the RTI data from two large centralised biomedical waste facilities. "Waste-generating bodies must be carelessly dumping non-incinerable materials, which ideally should go for autoclaving. That kind of waste cannot outweigh autoclavable waste, which is usually syringes, tubes, packets etc. If such waste are incinerated, then a lot of cancer- causing gases like dioxin and furan are being emitted into Delhi's air," said Parvinder Singh, of Toxics Link. In terms of environmental hazard, the findings have grave implications. "Globally, incinerators are being done away with because they have been found to be extremely polluting. The idea is to achieve minimal incineration. But with this kind of figures, the very basics of hazardous waste management appear to be missing," said Dr T.K. Joshi, expert on Delhi government's panel on biomedical waste. The data on the amount of waste handled by biomedical waste facilities for five consecutive days showed that ratio of incinerable and autoclavable waste is a dangerous 5:1. For instance, Synergy Waste Management, the company running two biomedical waste treatment facilities, autoclaves around 1469 kgs of hospital discard. In comparison, the incinerated amount is an astonishing 7184 kgs. "Usually, 80 per cent of waste is incinerated because they come in the mandatory yellow bag so we have no option but to burn them. Most of the time they contain plastic and PVC material and syringes," admits Neeraj Aggarwal, proprietor of Synergy. Hospital waste still a horror story - Yahoo! India News
