    A US-based doctor was awarded a compensation of Rs 1.73 crore in a medical negligence case by the National Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission on Friday.

    Landmark judgement. This should make sure that no substandard services are provided by hospitals.
    These days hospitals charge a bomb and there cannot be any room for any substandard treatment. There cannot be shortcuts to treatments.

    Health sector is crying for attention. The guy was rich to pursue this case, but what about the poor ones who lose their loved ones everyday due to negligence of doctors who treat them as if they are doing "Ahsan"?
