    Treatment of a patient depends on few aspects of the hospital Hospital staffing- if a hospital is understaffed it will affect the quality of treatment Level of hospital - covid is a disease which may require high level of oxygen , high tech equipments as well as ventilatory support ... A primary or secondary level hospital would only hamper in the effective treatment of patient Hospital policies- every institution has its own set of policies in consent with the govt... Especially in a pandemic like covid.... Risking 100 patients for 1 covid patient can also be termed as foolish and liable for medical negligence Lastly ... emergency medical services not only require response from hospitals .. but also from the governing authority. Addressed by Justice K.G. Balakrishnan, Chief Justice of India “Right to health is an issue of fundamental importance in Indian society. The responsibility to protect, respect and fulfil the right to health lies not only with the medical profession but also with public functionaries such as administrators and judges.” Article 21 itself has various notions on the aspect of right to health. Under Consumer Protection Act 1986... it is the right of the doctor to give treatment to the patients whom he wants to, but it is his moral duty to provide emergency medical care to the person who is in urgent need of it. But as to what constitutes a Medical Emergency is debatable.

    to get admitted in the hospital with court order in hand is like beat the cook and ask him to make the sweet dishes... he would definately spit over your dishes...

    With due respect to your intentions, your statement is bordering on instigating. In these trying times, many doctors or hospitals may have genuine reasons like lack of bed or not properly equipped to handle critical cases. As it is patients are scared and agitated, such statements may cause further damage.

    What a frivolous video made by a man of law, just personal publicity !! Shame on ambulance chasers spreading false/incorrect info on the social media. So here is the rebuttal to his claims: 1. The government is giving permission/licence to treat Covid patients to specific hospitals in accordance to norms. If a hospital knowingly admits and treat a Covid positive patient then the administration can seal or take action against the hospital. 2. If a hospital doesn't have the required doctor, adequate facilities or bed availability in the hospital, the hospital has the right to refuse admission. 3. If the hospital doesn't have adequate facilities to treat an already admitted patient e.g. A nephrologist or a dialysis machine then the hospital has the right to refer the patient to an higher centre. Now coming to this gentlemen's who is an honorable advocate's view firstly they are faulty but being a democratic country one does have the right to file a police or legal complaint if he/she believes that the treatment was not properly administered for a million reasons. But because of the rising cases filed against doctors & hospitals; they are being extra careful when treating a serious patient and that is why refers and refusal to admit is becoming a norm with doctors and hospitals for nobody wants to put their own careers or lives on jeopardy trying to save very serious patients due to frivolous law suits. I am not saying doctors are gods infact quite the opposite and neither I am saying that all medical professionals are clean in they ethics but 98% are but still face the growing mistrust from general public who will drink cola, eat burgers and these days wont even wear the mask properly but when it comes to a doctor simply about "doctor chor hain" or worst violence. Unless we change our attitudes we are looking at a bleak future for India already suffering massive shortage of medical professionals which will become a black hole and there will be point of no return. Today it's just refusal to admit, tomorrow there will be no doctor at hospitals to actually admit and treat a patient.

    Stop referring to the books that you have kept for perusal, brother. This Reflects how much you are dedicated to take up a case and to make money out of this.
