Parsi General Hospital – Good Show
This is just for information.
The state committee including officials from the health and sales tax departments and charity commissioners’ office scouted 49 city hospitals to check if they were adhering to the rules under the Bombay Public Trust (BPT) Act and norms of the Indigent Patient Fund (IPF) for poor patients. The committee, divided in 53 teams, found that 80% of the hospitals were violating provisions in both the cases.
Wadia Hospital ( govt hospital), Bombay Hospital and Cumbala Hill Hospital had less than 20% of the beds reserved for poor patients under the BPT Act.
Only Parsi General Hospital had more than 20% of the beds reserved for poor patients.
Ten hospitals had only made arrangements for poor patients.
As per the IPF, charitable hospitals have to transfer 2% of the total bill amount for the fund. Nine hospitals have not opened an IPF account including Bombay hospital, Hinduja hospital and Lilavati hospital. A few hospitals did not open the accounts but maintained registers.
Its time Parsis starting donating to their own assets that actually work rather than miracle men, babas, candles. Its time to give back to the agiaries, the parsi charities and our own. The hospital can improve if people use its services, the staff is very helpfull and the charity it is doing is magnificent
Pass this on to other zoroastrians as a proud zoroastrian.
