Be careful VISHAL BALI – CEO Fortis Healthcare

Be careful VISHAL BALI – CEO Fortis Healthcare

You are one person who is MOST likely to use Fortis Hospital for yours or your family’s needs.

Fortis Hospitals do NOT have Medicine allergy alert systems in their Hospital Pharmacies. If you are allergic to Penicillin or any other drug or Food, be VERY CAREFUL at Fortis Hospitals and MOST other hospitals in India.

Doctor Diagnosis in India? – You MUST get a 2nd Opinion

If you are in India and go to a Doctor there. IF the diagnosis is anything more serious than a simple fever or cough. you MUST get a 2nd Opinion.

LAB Commission: Most (99% or more) doctors have a commission of 30% to 40% from Labs and Diagnostic Centers that they send patients to.

Hospital Commission: Most (99% or more) doctors have a commission of 25% to 30% from Hospitals they send patients to.

The Doctor may not want anything bad for you BUT they are more worried about their “CUT”. They may not send you to the BEST hospital, but to a hospital with better or at least some commission.

Make your own decisions after research and talking to hospitals.

 

COMMISSIONS like above in Medical Field are Illegal in the US, UK and other countries.

 

Doctor & Hospital Pressure: Do NOT get pressurized by doctors to get surgery done ASAP. its a scare tactic.  Do YOUR research first and take some time to evaluate even if it is CANCER. Example: My mom had Cancer, and instead of going to a hospital that was Cancer specific ONLY, the Doctor referred us a “Multi-specialty” Fortis Hospital. That doctor was more worried about his 30% commission than what was best for my mom.

30 minutes travel time to hospital after a heart attack?

Vinod Kambli in hospital after 30 minutes or more on the road after a heart attack.

Another example of lack in infrastructure. the 100 emergency number was ABSENT as usual.

What’s sad is that we think that reaching hospital in 30 minutes after a heart attack is acceptable. It was a mild heart attack, that’s why Vinod Kambli survived. Most heart attack patients would have little to no chance of survival.

What happened to 100 emergency number….its non-existent?
Instead of applauding, you should be asking about what happened to the ambulance that SHOULD have taken Vinod Kambli to the hospital.

All developed countries have an effective emergency system, India does not.

Shame on the government for not able to create infrastructure and rules to facilitate people in an emergency.

Vinod Kambli – think and do something about it.
