Slugfest begins as Max Hospital resume services

After fighting a battle for more than 10 days, services at Max hospital in Shalimar Bagh resumed on Wednesday. The hospital had presented its case to the Finance commissioner on Tuesday. “The operation of the impugned order is stayed till the next hearing,” says the order by Finance Commissioner. The next hearing is on January 9.As the decision to open the hospital came out in public, a political slugfest kicked off between BJP and AAP over the decision. Neither the Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal not the Delhi government owned up to the decision fearing public outrage, instead who is ‘ruling’ the Finance Commissioner became the trending topic.”Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh has resumed its operations from today, following a stay order issued by the appropriate Appellate authority to whom an appeal was made.We are fully focussed on providing quality care to all our patients and honouring our commitment of ensuring free treatment to the economically weaker sections of the society,” the hospital said in its statement on Wednesday morning. However, the ‘Appellate authority’ has not been specified by the officials.The L-G house stated on Wednesday that no officials from the hospital met Baijal regarding the cancellation order. “The powers of appellate authority, being a quasi judicial function are performed by the Financial Commissioner, Delhi as per his/her judgment without any interference or supervision by any authority,” a statement from L-G house stated.The Delhi government on December 8 had cancelled the license of the hospital’s branch in Shalimar Bagh for wrongly declaring a baby dead. A preliminary report submitted by a panel of doctors to the Delhi government had found the hospital guilty of not having followed the prescribed medical norms in dealing with a pair of newborn twins.”On what basis & by whose decision was the appellate authority formed to hear the Max Shalimar Bagh licence cancellation appeal ? How did the appellate authority reach to the conclusion in the first hearing itself that a stay can be given on the DGHS decision ??,” Delhi government spokesperson Nagender Sharma tweeted.The Finance Commissioner is a statutory post and the incumbent on this post exercises the powers of the Lieutenant Governor/ Chief Commissioner, delegated under various statues. The commissioner has been delegated powers to act in a quasi-judicial capacity. The commissioner hears revision petitions/appeals against orders passed by competent authority under various acts including Delhi Nursing Home Registration Act, 1953.”The Commissioner falls under the jurisdiction of the L-G and not Delhi government. We were not even informed about the order,” said a senior Delhi government official.The blame game between AAP and BJP began with both the parties turning it into a political issue. “It was just to attract public attention. The government has taken back its decision. There is definitely some behind this decision,” said Manoj Tiwari president, Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).”What was the tearing hurry for the appellate authority to stay the cancellation of Max Shalimar Bagh licence ? Why did the heart beat only for profit making hospital & not the new borns ?? Decision on whose directions ??,” Delhi AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj tweeted.

Concerns raised over drug prices by committee in first meeting

The nine-member committee formed by Delhi government to keep a vigil on the functioning of private hospitals in the Capital in its first meeting raised some serious concern over the price of medicines in all the hospitals. The first meeting held on Friday also discussed and suggested ways to limit the number of visits of a specialist in a hospital.According to the sources, one of the major concerns raised by the members was the capping of the drug prices not covered under the National List of Essential Medicines (NLEM). These included gloves and syringes.”While the government has a capping on the NLEM drugs, we are concerned about those which are not included in the list. A common rule should be there for all the medicine and drugs,” said one of the members who attended the meeting.The health department had received various complaints against the private hospitals forcing patients to buy medicines at an inflated rate and from the hospital medical shops. The committee will also look into consumables, behaviour protocol of medical staff, Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and misdemeanor at the hospital.”This issue is majorly troubling the patients, who are visiting the hospitals on a regular basis,” added the member. The members will now next meet on December 29 to discuss the further course of action.The members are from the Indian Medical Association (IMA), Delhi Medical Council (DMC), Delhi Medical Association (DMA).The move comes days after the government cancelled the license of Max hospital in Shalimar Bagh for wrongly declaring a newborn dead.”Over-billing is a big problem in private hospitals. We are forming a committee, including experienced doctors and medical experts, which will provide recommendations,” Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain had said.The decision was taken following a series of meetings by Jain with various professional and regulatory organisations representing doctors working across the Capital.Meanwhile, the DMC has written to the doctors and nurses of Max hospital in Shalimar Bagh involved in the alleged medical negligence to submit their response in the case.

Shutting hospitals randomly not in public interest, will directly impact patients, says Ficci

Closing down hospitals “randomly” due to individual errors is not in the interest of the public and nation and will directly affect the health and well-being of patients undergoing treatment, Ficci said on Thursday, asking the the media and the government not to “pre-judge” in any case.Ficci’s stand comes against the backdrop of alleged medical negligence and overcharging by two private hospitals recently.While Fortis in Gurgaon came under a cloud because of the death of a 7-year-old girl from dengue and overcharging issues, a premature baby was wrongly declared dead by Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh in the national capital.”India is already grappling with extremely low bed density at 1.3 beds per 1,000 population, as compared to WHO recommendation of 3.5 beds. Hence, it is not in the interest of public and nation if hospitals are randomly shut down due to individual errors,” said the industry chamber.It observed that such a move will only widen the gap further and directly affect the health and well-being of patients undergoing treatment in hospitals.”Rational and appropriate action is necessary in case of negligence or failure of the healthcare system based on proper investigation, validation based on the principles of natural justice and not based on emotional outburst,” Ficci said.While the chamber did not name any particular hospital, it asserted that the Indian healthcare industry is concerned and worried over the recent onslaught of negativity generated following a few unfortunate cases.”While we fully support the legal and medico-legal actions that need to be taken against those found guilty by the Medical Council or by legal authorities, our request to the government and public is to give cognisance to the good work carried out by the private healthcare industry that is now being vilified,” Ficci said.It said the need of the hour is to bridge the widening trust deficit between the private healthcare providers and the government as also between the doctor and the patient.”Under the current scenario, expeditious implementation of Standard Treatment Guidelines, Electronic Health Records and Clinical Establishments Act across the country is imperative. The affordability aspect needs to be covered with increasing penetration of health insurance through social and private health insurance schemes,” said the chamber.Max Healthcare on Wednesday moved a “government authority” against the cancellation of licence of its hospital in Shalimar Bagh in north-west Delhi, even as it appealed to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) to “reconsider” its decision.

Delhi govt to set up legal framework to check criminal negligence by hospitals: Arvind Kejriwal

The Delhi government would come up with a legal framework to check the “loot” and “criminal negligence” by the private hospitals, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Tuesday, in the wake of a premature baby being wrongly declared dead by a city hospital.The chief minister said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government had “succeeded” in restraining the private schools from arbitrarily deciding their fee structure, adding that a similar legal framework would be put in place in the health sector to take action against the errant private hospitals.”We do not want to interfere in the functioning of the private hospitals, but if those suffering from ailments are looted and cheated and the hospitals are guilty of criminal negligence against them, being a responsible government, we will interfere in such cases,” Kejriwal said.Speaking at a function at the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences (MAIDS) here, he pointed out two recent incidents — a private hospital charging Rs 15 lakh from a dengue patient and another hospital declaring an infant dead.On December 1, the city government had ordered an inquiry into a case of alleged criminal negligence by the Max Hospital at Shalimar Bagh, after it surfaced that its doctors had declared an infant dead, who was found to be alive later.”We will work on it (on the legal framework) and the government will try to ensure that there is no recurrence of such cases,” Kejriwal, who was the chief guest at the ‘Delhi Smiles – Dental Health Utsav, 2017’ at the MAIDS, said.On the occasion, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said the government would set up 100 dental clinics on the lines of the mohalla clinics.

Living baby declared dead: Max Hospital terminates services of two docs involved in negligence

This strict action has been taken on the basis of our initial discussions with the expert group and as a reflection of our commitment to higher standards of care.

The father, Ashish Kumar, was on his way to a cremation ground when he noticed moment in one of the bags.Union Health Minister JP Nadda also directed the Delhi government to look into the matter, after which a probe was ordered, and a report sought within three days.

42% college kids have impaired lung function

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The ‘severe’ air quality in Delhi in the last one week has affected the respiratory system of youngsters, a survey has revealed. A random survey, conducted by Fortis Hospital in Shalimar Bagh between November 6 and 11 at five different colleges in Delhi University, Dwarka, Rohini, and Greater Noida stated that 51 per cent of students experienced aggravation in their symptoms because of the pollution.Of the 1,044 students enrolled in the study, 72 per cent were men and 28 per cent were women. The survey revealed that 53 per cent of the students had visible respiratory symptoms, such as cough, sputum production, chest tightness, and breathlessness.”There was a need to involve the youth in such a study because it makes them aware of how the problem of pollution can deter their growth. It makes them more involved in the fight against air pollution,” said Dr Vikas Maurya, senior consultant and head of department, respiratory medicine and interventional pulmonology, Fortis hospital, Shalimar Bagh.The age group varied between 18 and 24 years. All the people were asked to fill a questionnaire, which consisted questions related to respiratory symptoms, pollution, allergies, and use of inhalers.Nearly 52 per cent of the youngsters said they were allergic to smoke, dust, and pollen, 42 per cent showed lung function impairment, and 11per cent were already using inhalers. “The reasons for such high levels of pollution are multiple — lax monitoring mechanisms, absence of a comprehensive policy framework around safe environment, and lack of proactive action to restrict hazardous activities. The Lancet Medical Journal has reported that in 2015, pollution claimed nearly 3 million lives in India, which is disturbing,” said Mahipal Bhanot, facility director, Fortis, Shalimar Bagh.Most of the monitoring stations in the city have been recording pollution levels well beyond 500, which was almost 10 times the permissible standards of 60. Hospitals across the Capital have been swamped with hassled patients, complaining of breathlessness, headache, throat infection, fever, cough etc. Private hospitals are witnessing a rise of 20 per cent in the number of cases of respiratory illnesses.

Speak up Delhi: E-rick a bane more than a boon

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>While the battery-run electronic rickshaw or e-rickshaws came to be known as environment-friendly means of transportation as well as a boost for last mile connectivity, however, over the years e-rickshaws have turned to be a menace.Lighter than other vehicles and not confirming to any traffic norms, these electric rickshaws have a free run squeezing through the normal traffic causing long snarls. Besides being driven rashly and without any safety norms, the rickshaws frequently run into accidents.From colony roads to main roads and queued up along Metro stations, these vehicles are parked haphazardly congesting the roads.While the official figures suggest that around 45,000 e-rickshaws are registered with the government, officials said, at least over a lakh of these vehicles operate on city roads on a daily basis.According to experts, electric rickshaws do not fall in the purview of the Motor Vehicles Act for being run on sub-250 watt motor with a maximum plying speed of up to 25 kmph.Only earlier this year the traffic police had booked over 41,000 e-rickshaws for violations including improper parking, wrong-side driving, overtaking, speeding and having seated passengers above capacity, which can make the vehicle turn turtle.E-rickshaws started mushrooming over city roads around 2012, as these were free from any government regulations. However, in 2015 the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways asked the government to make rules for battery-vehicles.The Delhi government’s transport department has recently made it mandatory for e-rickshaw owners to link their vehicle registration with Aadhaar card. The Aam Aadmi Party government has also announced a subsidy of Rs 30,000 for e-rickshaws.E-RICK OWNERS ASKED TO LINK AADHAARThe AAP government has come out with a new directive stating it will now be mandatory for e-rickshaw​ owners to link their vehicle registration with an Aadhaar card in order to get Rs 30,000 subsidy from the Delhi government.
Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot asked the officials to make sure that the GPS device could be connected directly with the battery of the vehicle so that its location could be checked even when the engine is off. E-rickshaws are the most tragic means of transportation in Delhi. The road around Metro stations is already congested with vehicles blocking the road, e-rickshaw add to the mess. People get injured in the crowd outside the station. -Rajan Mutreja, JanakpuriOur roads are already encroached by hawkers, just as we try to manoeuvre our vehicle around them these e-rickshaw make it tough to drive. Especially in the market areas, where in process to get more passenger they enter small lanes, leaving no space for pedestrians to walk.Jyoti, Karol BaghE-rickshaw drivers do not adhere to any of the traffic rules. The major reason for the traffic is haphazard parking, plus the way the over load their vehicle. The government is waiting for untoward incident to happen and then come with rules for e-rickshawsDrishti Khanna, Shalimar Bagh Well, since there are no allotted rickshaws stands, they occupy more than half the road near Metro stations, which further adds to the traffic jam. Reckless driving by them in the middle of the roads cause accidents every now and then. This mode of transportation is vulnerable to meet with accidents as they go overboard with getting more passenger and overloading the rickshawUdhav Kainth, Rajender PlaceThe e-rickshaw drivers do not care about the public on the road. They once smashed into my aunt’s arm and were not even bothered to apologise. The government should take strict action against these drivers. There are so many who ply illegally, tranport depatment should ensurre they are registered and have proper documents to ply it Rishi Kapoor, Patel NagarEXPERT SPEAKThe e-rickshaws are mostly made in China and are light vehicles with a limited speed and seating capacity. The government besides registering all these vehicles and giving them valid permits must make separate lanes for these to ply. Segregation of non-motorised vehicles such as rickshaws, e-rickshaws and bicycles is crucial to manage traffic movement, avoid accidents and providing transport solutions as well. World over non-motorised vehicles move in separate lanes from the usual traffic. The problem is that there is no effective policy or planning. The government has to regulate the movement of e-rickshaw vehicles.”—P K Sarkar, head, transport planning at School of Planning and Architecture (SPA)
