Poor facilities in RML Hospital led Journalist to life support

One such incident came to light when a Journalist was admitted in Delhi's well-known Ram Manohar Lohia hospital in a critical condition

Although the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal may make a thousand claims for the betterment of health facilities, but the truth is far more scary. If you visit some of the big government hospitals in Delhi, then the facts which describe the situation there are hardly acceptable to anyone.

One such incident came to light when a Journalist was admitted in Delhi's well-known Ram Manohar Lohia hospital in a  critical condition. The patient had viral fever with trouble in breathing. Family members of the Journalist Sushant Ranjan told the Power Corridors team that they were given a bed after several hours of hard work and he wasn't looked after well by the hospital staff. The patient was severe breathing problem and needed oxygen, but the hospital could not provide the necessary facilities and the patient's condition worsened. 

"His condition became very critical late in the night and a few patients around him died due to lack of essential facilities and we got very scared seeing the situation. The behaviour of the hospital staff was very rude and they hardly cared about the patients admitted there", said Sushant's mother.

Realising the need of the hour the patient's family decided to shift him to a private hospital where he could get better treatment as the situation was extremely critical. Shortly, the patient was admitted to Max Hospital where he is placed on a ventilator. The condition of the patient is still not absolutely fine but the doctors are looking after him. 

A doctor is given the status of GOD in our society but if the patients will be treated in such a way then only 'God can help'.
