He was forced to buy Anti-venom serum from the private medical shop after which he was able to save his life all thanks to the AIIMS, doctors who constantly assist him to save his life from many dangerous situations.
This was one of the greatest shocking news that a big hospital like AIIMS doesn't have snake venom antiserum.
As this is the summer and the regional people still do farming. Many people who work on their agricultural land many times encounter snakes.
The snake found in the Rishikesh area, particularly on nearby Agricultural land, is considered a deadly snake that can take life in hours if caught by them.
This is the total mismanagement of the government hospital that they either have to buy costly venom serum from outside or have to get referred to a private hospital.
The poor people who are serving in an era where the inflation rate is above 7% in the country. Those who hardly run their day-to-day life, how you can think they can pay 8000 to 10000 for venom serum plus the hospital services. This is the price if you are in a government hospital.
If you GOT referred to a private hospital, the price can go to more than 15,000. Think now about how a farmer or an economically, backward family will get affected by this poor management.
This is every year story, government officials don't give preferences to the government hospital regarding the supply chain of medicine stock & par stock.
People are on their own, paying taxes but have no preference for their health. Quick services and attentions are only for VIPs but common natives are regarded as casualties.
