Future

Shall we anticipate??????
Compelled by the conditions prevailing the medical man are already practising defensive medicine. In coming years more and more critical patients will face this………

A patients go to family physician who checks him, declares that he is serious and advises to get admitted.

PATIENT now
starts his journey in AMBULANCE ,
Goes to near by small nursing home , doctor finds him critical ,he thinks patient can be saved in ward with some vigilant care, but technically he needs an ICU, which he doesn’t have, therefore, refers the patient to higher center and
PATIENT IN AMBULANCE…………

Goes to some bigger hospital, doctor find him critical, thinks about admitting him to ICU, but hold on, do we have round the clock super specialist because if some thing untoward happens during the course of treatment than media and the court will ask about it, no we haven't, refer him to higher centre.
And again PATIENT IN AMBULANCE……

Goes to big corporate hospital, every facility available but treatment cost estimate, too high, cannot be borne by relatives, refused to admit and

again PATIENT IN AMBULANCE….
Goes to big government hospital, overcrowded, no beds available, have to wait for 3 to 4 days for admission, and

again PATIENT IN AMBULANCE ,
where to go ??????????
Go to media? Go to govt.?
