  1. Jodhpur Hospitals Seeps to improve Image
    • JODHPUR: Nearly four months after the "serial" deaths of 16 women in Jodhpur hospitals due to administration of contaminated IV fluid, much seems to have changed at the Umaid Hospital.

  2. US Pharmaceutical Company Testing Drugs on India's Poor
    • U.S. pharmaceutical companies have moved their operations overseas in the past decade, testing their drugs on poor people in such lands as Russia, China, Brazil and Romania. It is a $30 billion business, and today around 105 countries are allowing such large corporations as Merck and AstraZeneca to conduct clinical trials on their soil. One country that has experienced a boom like no other in this industry is India, with its widely spoken English, an established medical infrastructure and welcoming attitudes towards foreign industry. Most importantly, these pharmaceutical companies are exploiting the country’s vast number of illiterate and poor people who are willing to become guinea pigs. READ MORE
  3. From Stretcher to Where ??
    • An emergency response today cannot be crafted in silos. Being prepared equally includes medical preparedness as large-scale attacks on urban, civilian populations have become all too frequent over the past decade. These incidents often result in what experts call “Hospital Multiple Casualty Incidents” (HMCI) which are very challenging to hospital teams.
      Faced with a catastrophe, our doctors and nurses are doing their best and saving many lives. But it should not be left to individual capability and commitment. The critical question: How geared is the “system” on the whole to deal with mass casualties? Last Wednesday’s blasts in Mumbai offered a stark example of the gaping hole between what ought to be and what is on this score: we saw many injured victims being bundled into trucks and taken to hospitals. The ambulances came later. READ MORE
