  3. MADURAI: Health and human rights activists here who found anomalies in the implementation of the state health insurance scheme on Thursday demanded a social audit into the scheme.

  4. There is one pvt hospital in my knowledge which has set its own protocol for inpatient . This hospital asked to every admitted patient that patient need to get HIV test if they want treatment in their hospital if the patient denied for this test than hospital denied to admit the patient. In short hospital forced the patient for this test. When anyone asked no...hospital said this is government rule. And the same hospital declared that this patient has critical disease like cancer HIV etc in its lab report. But the same disease reports come negative in Central Government hospital. What action can be taken against that hospital which gave wrong report of disease. Can we make any complain or use RTI on the above condition. If yes please tell me what to do and how to do ?? I will be very grateful to your quick response.
  5. Right to Information Appellate alleged that in a Medico-Legal case, the Doctor in the hospital had overwritten 'simple hurt' as 'Grievous hurt'. Because of this change, the appellate son was booked under 308 of IPC, a non­-bailable offence. As it is a case of physical assault, nature of injury matters a lot, in deciding nature of crime & sentence. Appellant has questioned the credibility of the MLC because of this overwriting in it. On the basis of that overwriting in the MLC, investigation officer charged his son for causing grievous hurt. Making a plea that if doctors have different opinion, they should mention the same by issuing a new MLC instead of rewriting over MLC, the Appellate filed the RTI to know is there any guidelines for doctors in preparing and correcting the Medico Legal Reports. Despite several reminders, there was no reply to his RTI application. To know more about the RTI Act kindly visit our Right to Information Wiki. And to get help from our members, go to our forum to post your issue. You can also access RTI resources by downloading our Mobile App for Android and Apple iOS. The commission decided in the appellate favour by directing public authority to provide certified copy of guidelines being followed by Doctors regarding MLC, within 21 days from the date of receipt of this order, failure will result in initiation of penalty proceeding against them. Further, commission also directed public authority to inquire into this “overwriting” to fix responsibility and submit a report.

  6. [caption id=attachment_3172" align="alignright" width="300] Private Hospitals to give records of Patient[/caption] Central Information Commission had recommended to force Private Hospitals to give records of Patient on day-to-day basis because this daily disclosure will prevent undesirable practices of altering records after damage caused to patient. Forcing the private hospitals to provide daily­wise medical records will also act as a check on some hospitals from resorting to extortionist, inhuman and ruthless business of prescribing unnecessary diagnostic tests, unnecessary surgical operations, caesarean deliveries, unwarranted angioplasties, inserting stents, without need, or of substandard nature, or putting low quality stent while collecting price of high quality stent, and several such malpractices amounting to medical terrorism, etc. You can read RTI Act here! In a major achievement to this decision, Fortis Hospital was forced to provide certified copies of medical records, names and designation of Doctors who treated the patient and the copy of Medical registration of three Doctors who treated the patient. Fortis Hospital provided the information through the Directorate of Health Services, Delhi. Private Hospitals to give records of Patient Earlier, the Commission had directed the authority to compel Fortis hospital with its regulatory power provided under the law to comply with the provisions of the Nursing Homes Registration Act or Clinical Establishment (Registration & Regulation) Act, MCI Act and RTI Act or any other rule or provision under any law, and provide the entire information to the appellant within one 21 days from the date of receipt of this order. CIC has noted that "They (Private Hospital) should not be allowed to such malpractices with all impunity and get away without any legal consequences as if there is an absolute immunity. The Government, Medical Council of India and the health regulatory has to see that licence to practice medicine will not become licence to kill and extort and come to the rescue of helpless patients."

  11. Hello, Any facilities [ eg. no night duties,Voluntary retirement benefits] for Medical Officers over 50 years of age working in Government Hospitals and Primary Health Centres
  12. Continuing their earlier decision of 'No Right to Repeat', now Central Information commission has gone a step ahead and directed to seek a probe by an appropriate authority into the motive behind the RTI applicant repeated RTI questions in such a reckless manner. This probe is intended for Public Authority to know whether repeated questions are guided by public interest or private interest! If you want to file RTI Online, please read our guide on filing RTI online here. You can download our sample RTI forms here! The Commission considered this case as the case of repetitive use of RTI assuming the proportion of harassment to the Public Authority and reckless abuse of RTI. Probe into the motive behind repeated RTI The appellant Mr. Nitesh Kumar Tripathi has filed the above 13 RTI applications against different Hospitals controlled by the same Public Authority, i.e. Department of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of NCT of Delhi. The Commission observes that the RTI questions asked by the appellant are wide­ ranging; require lot of effort on the part of the Public Authority to collect documents. Almost all of his RTI applications are the Photostat copies containing the same questions. It is a reckless way of seeking information which nobody knows whether the same is supported by any public interest. The appellant has cultivated a habit of sending Photostat copies in a format which were given as RTI Applications, sometimes, even without filling the blanks. He does not attend, appear for inspection, appear before the First Appellate Authority or the Commission. In response to this second appeal, 13 doctors attended the hearing. The Doctors represented that their precious time needed to be used for patients, an emergency medical case is being spent on such needless, non­ serious questions, without any purpose. They appealed to the Commission to prevent such misuse of RTI Act by people like the appellant in this case. The information furnished by the respondent authorities is relevant, since his appeals do not disclose why he was not satisfied. Hence all the above 13 appeals/complaints were dismissed by CIC. The commission retreated that: Even a single repetition of RTI application would demand the valuable time of the public authority, first appellate authority and if it also reaches second appeal, that of the Commission, which time could have been spent to hear another appeal or answer another application or perform other public duty. Every repetition of RTI application which was earlier responded will be an obstruction to flow of information and defeats the purpose of the RTI Act. The entire information about the repeated RTI questions by appellants, and the documents given by the Public authority, the private interest of the appellants, if any, lack of public interest in the said RTI applications, etc. also shall be kept in the public domain.

  13. 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.

    How RTI can help us........

    True that RTI has helped in getting information about passport status etc. But it shouldn't be limited to that. RTI can help not only an individual, but the entire society. For eg: The Adarsh scam was exposed due to RTI We have to make use of this act to find out the effectiveness of various governmental organisations such as government schools, hospitals etc.If the funtioning is found to be faulty, it should be made public through media for press is probably the most effective change-bringer. Though we are a democracy, what is quite sad is that once the elections are over, politicians don't bother to pay attention to our views.The decision our representive takes might not be what the majority of the people in her/his constituency wants.But do we, as citizens, fight against this, Most probably not because most of us dont have the time to and even don't know how to. So, to keep a watch on these politicos and their ever-growing appetite for our money,RTI is the right vehicle. Just the fact that we have such a right won't make any change.We, as proud citizens of this country, have to put it to use.

  18. Fatehabad, December 5 Owing to the indifferent attitude of the authorities, the ultrasound machine installed at the local General Hospital has been non-functional for the past 34 months and no effort is being made to get it repaired. The issue came to light when a local resident, Mr Manoj Kumar Aggarwal, sought information regarding the machine from the hospital under the Right to Information Act. The information provided by the authorities points towards the lackadaisical attitude of the hospital authorities. Mr Aggarwal, who has been taking cudgels against the high-handed and indifferent attitude of the authorities toward the general public in the past too, sought information from the hospital authorities regarding the ultrasound machine. The information provided by the authorities revealed that the ultrasound machine was installed in the hospital on September 28, 1999, and had not been in working condition since February 27, 2004. The information provided by the hospital authorities revealed that even during the period when the ultrasound machine was in working condition, there was no radiologist in the hospital and the one deputed from the General Hospital Hisar conducted the tests. The information revealed that earlier the hospital authorities had a contract with M/s Philips Medical Systems India Limited for the repair of this machine, but now there was no contract with any firm. To a question whether any request had been made to the company for the repair of the machine, the hospital replied that a request was made on November 29. Interestingly, Mr Aggarwal had given his application under the Right to Information Act on November 29. He was provided with the requisite information on December 4. {Source: "The Tribune", Dec.06,2006, Chandigarh}
