A casualty can happen anytime, anywhere and immediate medical assistance is utmost important for accident victims. Sometimes, good Samaritans do help the accident victims find hospitals but at the same time, they are at a huge loss when the private hospitals sometimes just turn them away.
Thankfully, to save the precious life of accident victims, a new scheme by the Delhi government will bear all the bills to treat burn, acid or road accident victims. If the accident takes place in the geographical area of authority of the city, all victims irrespective of domicile, and even foreigners – will be eligible for free treatment in any hospital in Delhi.
Satyendra Jain, health minister of the capital of India announced this scheme at a press conference held on 12th December. According to a leading daily, he said, “Our aim is to save as many lives as possible. Even when a private hospital is located nearby, many accident victims are taken to government hospitals and often the ‘auspicious hour’ is lost in transport. This move from the Delhi government comes after it introduced a scheme to foot the bills of surgeries for Delhiites in 48 private hospitals in July this year.
Private hospitals need to be sensitive to accident victims. In November 2017, the Kerala authorities decided to set up a ‘trauma care’ policy to assure that both state-run and private sector hospitals do not charge any penny for two days from road accident victim. A similar scheme has been launched by Karnataka state government.
As per a recent government survey a 3% drop in road accidents and a 4.75% drop in fatalities between January 2017 to July 2017, approximately 1.50, 785 individuals were killed in road accidents. If accident prone victims receive proper and better care during the golden hour, these ratios could drop in future.
