Before All Else, Treat

As a follow-up to this post of Dilip's, Annie has a useful post here about a National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission judgement regarding the treatment of patients in emergencies. True, this judgement was issued in a different context, where the patient was an accident victim and the hospital, which was a private institution, insisted on an upfront deposit despite the production of the victim's Mediclaim policy - but, as Annie says, it may be useful to keep in mind in case there are cases of hospitals turning away patients or delaying their treatment citing administrative or bureaucratic reasons.
