the hospital and its administration are totally responsible for this to happen to a mdical student. they should foot the bill and should be thankful the students family for not charging a case against the hospital. If this happened in any western country they would treat u at the best and pay the compensation if fought legally.
Very sad to know that such a deserving girl is suffering from rare disease. I feel the best thing for her is to contact Jain Aurvedic center in Ujjain. I feel Ayurvedic treatment is the best for her, though even that treatment may be costly but at least, will ne permanent without having to take medicines throughout her life.
Unfortunately in India, the concept of occupational health is still non existent, with no proper system of pre employment health checks, regular health surveillance, not just for doctors but for all health care workers. Such situations could have been preventable. Lets hope this young doctor fights her way through and recovers well enough to practice medicine to the best of her ability.

Samidha's parents and her collegues are asking for donations for her treatment at Hinduja Hospital. But can't Hinduja Hospital and its team of doctors treating her forgo of their charges or at least give maximum possible concession? Ethically the medicos should not charge medicos, but the corporate culture has done away with medical ethics.

unfortunately privatisation of health care is a reality we have to accept.gone are the days where health provision was a socialistic concept.It is now capitalistic, and political influences/interferences make sure that appropriate funds are not diverted to public health services.This leaves private health care providers to fleece patients. Most doctors always start of being idealistic but competition for survival leads to most of them accepting unethical practices as the norm, made worse by corporate healthcare honchos, drug companies and drug reps who threaten to spread vicious rumours if they dont tow the line.
