If u want ur car to run well you need a good mechanic.Similarly you need to chose your doctors ..and hospitals.

My car mechanic fixed my clutch plate problem at a cost of Rs 500 ,when a reputed showroom in Chennai goofed it up twice and charged Rs 5000 twice.

is it the car mechanic profession and medical profession are comparable?
is the human life and car life comparable?
no body is saying doctors should not earn or they should live in poverty.. but Doctors profession needs more service mentality...
anyway current situation of TN GH and medical industry is due to the corporate greedy, Govt goof up etc...
Lets not blame the doctor community alone...As i repeated many times,, there are some good persons too..

There are many good people and we always hear about bad ones and it stays in mind... Its also a profession and what is the problem if they charge more? I lived in Ennore where a Doctor named Ravindranath charged Rs 3 till 93 and after that 5. Once my grandfather slipped and he came to our home treated him and did not charge single paisa as my granpa was 85 year old man and for the care my dad on him(he said that). That may not look very big but the point is this is the first time I am sharing this info anywhere. On the other had I received some bad treatment I(many I bet) would have been repeated that n number of time to a single person alone. In the age of twitter and FB I would have posted about that and my friends would have shared it etc etc

Vinoth,
the problem here.. is good samples are less and bad samples are more.. i have not even shared very bad sample here and dont want to share it to hurt others.... at the same time, i shared the good one here and i am insisting that day by day bad samples are getting increased with corporate lobby, Govt's goof up combinations...
most of the bad samples are from corporate hospitals only and unfortunately they are only rapidly growing...
let me share 1 very good example...
Gynecologist whom we got treatment for my wife is damn good in chennai. she speaks very nice, . she always encouraged to have good healthy food, repeated "grandma" treatments and hardly written any complex english medicine.
similarly couple of Pediatrician whom taken care of my kid are good. even i had a good treatment from corporate hospital. At the same time, my friends who went for big corporate hospital had a "different" kind of treatment..

The economics of Medical educations foxes me.

If one gets the payment seat, it is around 25 to 40 lakhs. Apart from that normal fee & hostel & mess fee etc etc.

5 years of MBBS 2 -3 years of internship, 2-3 years MD and total min 10 years gone in studies.

For MD seat also separate payments ???

A normal doctor working only in a Govt Hospital can never earn that kind of money in his whole life.

Only rich kids with Doctor parent/s can afford.

Very skewed and bad.

Kannan, the story is very similar in US. Medical students end up paying their student loans for a looooooongggg time.. Though they may command higher incomes, they end up digging a very deep hole, which takes them a considerable lifetime effort to repay.

I feel TN can have an upper hand in Bio Electronics or similar Associated Biotech fields than Bio tech / Pharma production. (where Karnatak, AP & HP are far ahead).

150-bed palliative care centre in Thalambur

CHENNAI: Touted as the first of its kind in India, a 150-bed palliative care centre is to be inaugurated in the Sri Venkateshwara Dental College Campus in Thalambur on Monday.
Conceptualised and built by Vel’s Charitable Trust, the Shri Isari Velan Mission Hospital is named after founder Dr Isari K Ganesh’s father on the occasion of his 25th death anniversary. Palliative medicine, which aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for those with terminal illnesses, is considered a relatively obscure part of medical care in India. To bring this type of care to those who need it, but cannot afford it, the hospital offers free treatment. Addressing the media at a press conference here on Saturday, Dr Ganesh said, “Palliative care is a required part of treatment for those whose illnesses cannot be cured. The hospital is open not just for cancer patients, but for anyone in their last throes of life. Here they will receive food, accommodation, treatment and nursing free of cost.”
The 10-acre hospital, built at a cost of `9 crore, has plenty of open space, an open air theatre, a temple, a church and a mosque apart from a room for indoor games and a library, said Dr Ganesh. Of the 150 beds, 100 will be free; 50 will be special suites for those who can afford the treatment. Provisions have been made for 50 attenders to stay at the hospital as well.
The hospital is set to be inaugurated by Chairperson of the Cancer Institute Dr V Shanta

Sorry to prick the balloon.

The first phase itself was filled with great difficulty after specific support from DST, Delhi through CLRI and other similar labs.

In reality, most of the space has been occupied (Forced to occupy) by testing labs and not research labs.

SIPCOT does not know how to build a bio research park and how to market it.

Better if they leave that to pvt sector.

Hospitals eye 'halal' certification to attract patients from Middle East

Quote:
CHENNAI: There are two things that worry almost every patient from Islamic countries who come to Indian hospitals: the meat they eat and the direction of Mecca. With more than 75% of the medical tourists being from the Middle East, hospitals are eyeing 'halal' certification to make them feel at home.

On Monday, Chennai-based Global Health City said it has became the first in the country to receive the 'halal' certification from the Halal Development Authority. The certification would mean they get 'halal' meat in food and have 'quiblah' (the direction of Mecca) signs in every room and prayer hall. Muslims offer prayers facing 'quiblah.'

At least five leading hospital groups in the country including Apollo Hospitals and Fortis are in talks with the authority, said Halal India general manager Mohamed Noman Lateef. In Chennai, Mehta Hospitals and Lifeline Hospitals have also sent applications for the certification.

Halal India, is an independent Halal Certification body which is recognised by the Indian government and deals with certification of food, cosmetics and drugs as per the Shariah law. Halal is anything that is legal or lawful for Muslims. In terms of meat, halal applies to the kind of meat (pork is banned), their health condition and the way they are killed. The butcher must make a recitation to God and cut the jugular vein, carotid artery and the windpipe with a sharp knife. The animal can't be stunned before it is killed.

To ensure the meat used in the Global hospital's kitchen is 'halal,' officials from Halal India visited the slaughter house from where the meat is purchased. "It's not just about food or prayer hall, it's about lifestyle. For any Muslim it is important that any business performed in their daily lives is clean, hygienic and not detrimental to either their health or wellbeing as specified in the religious text. In that sense, it is a new benchmark for quality," said Halal India business development manager Sheetal Bajaj.

Hospital chairman Dr K Ravindranath said Halal certification was a form of approval that boosts patients' confidence. "To earn the certification, Global Health City had to meet strict Islamic guidelines dealing with hygiene and dietary regulations of global standards." The hospital's international business vice-president M Zakariah Ahmed said after Joint Commission International (JCI) this would be one of the biggest certification process hospitals in the country are aiming for.

Every room will also have a sticker that gives the exact direction of Mecca. "I tell every patient the food is halal. But I feel they would be happy to see the certification," said Global Hospital's international patients executive Vireesh Singh. "We tell them that we make public announcements for prayer and ensure that we give women a separate place during prayer," he said.

Transplant surgeon Dr Madhu Shankar agrees. "People from the Middle East have a different culture. We don't enter the female patient's room without their permission. A female nurse will walk in first and seek permission for a male doctor's entry," he said.

India’s Halal Hospital

Hoping to boost medical tourism from Muslim countries, Chennai’s Global Health Center, in the eastern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, has acquired a halal certificate for its hospital services to assure Muslim patients on the quality of the services offered to them, Two Circles website reported.

“With about two billion Muslims worldwide and a major number of international health travelers coming to Global Health City from the Islamic nations, we see Halal Certification as a form of approval that boosts our patients’ trust and confidence in our range of hospital services,” said Dr. K. Ravindranath, Chairman & MD, Global Hospitals Group.

“To earn the certification, Global Health City had to meet strict Islamic guidelines dealing with hygiene & dietary regulations of global standards.”
India Brands Go Halal

Global Health City, Chennai is a 500-bed super specialty tertiary care facility, with a capacity to expand to 1000 beds.
Being a world class hospital, the Global Health City has been keen on assuring its patients on the standard of services offered to them.
Applying for the halal certificate, it received the Halal certification for its hospital services by Halal India – an independent Halal certification body registered with government of India.

The certificate was recognized by IHIA (International Halal Integrity Alliance, Malaysia); a partner of the Islamic Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). It requires offering halal food and other services as well, including medicines and other treatment, Mohammad Noman, General Manager (operations), said. Halal friendly medical tourism services include Food, Prayer Hall, Qibla Direction mark, Payer mate, copies of Quran, for woman patients woman doctor’s appointments. Noman added that the hospital follows the Malaysian Standards and Practice in offering halal slaughter. “We do the site audit and ensure that meat supplier must follow the Shari`ah Compliance based on Malaysian Standards,” he said. “Also Butcher must be practicing Muslim and undergo Halal India’s one day training and obtain the name batch and certifications.”

Promising Market

Being the first hospital in India to acquire a halal certification, the health city’s managers said that the new market was in its first steps. “Still this market is not matured in India unlike other countries like Malaysia, Singapore,” Noman, the operations general manager, added. “We need to educate Muslims to seek Halal Certified medicines in future (Lot of capsules in India made with gluten (Pig or Beef).” Mohamed Jinna, CEO, Halal India, agreed.
Yet, he confirmed that they had a unique opportunity to lead the new halal medical market in India. “We have great heritage for service and hospitality in India which also signifies that we can take good care of patients,” Jinna said. “The state of art technologies available in medical care is just perfect for overseas patients. All we need to do is understand their culture and custom so that we accommodate them well and make them feel truly at home”. “This way we can respect their values and belief and at the same time cater to this niche market in India,” he further added.

Muslims account for 160 million of India's 1.1 billion people, the world's third-largest Muslim population after those of Indonesia and Pakistan. The concept of halal, -- meaning permissible in Arabic -- has traditionally been applied to food. Muslims should only eat meat from livestock slaughtered by a sharp knife from their necks, and the name of Allah, the Arabic word for God, must be mentioned. Now other goods and services can also be certified as halal, including cosmetics, clothing, pharmaceuticals and financial services.
