If you are of the view that treatment for other health issues in the Chennai hospitals is of less cost, then this article would surprise you.

It is now brought out that the treatment for various other non-Covid-19 health issues is expensive in the Chennai hospitals. Important information is the patients who want to get treatment for other health issues would have to pay for PPEs cost plus for Covid-19 tests and for disinfection costs etc.

An additional amount of Rs 8000 must be spent for the sake of attendants tests and for the 4 day stay in the hospitals. Inpatient services like elective surgeries and invasive diagnosis are being started again in the hospitals now. 

For the purpose of new standards of practice, it is necessary to test the patients and their attendants before admission in the hospitals. Until the patient gets discharged, the attendants would not be allowed to leave the hospitals.

It was later revealed by a patient admitted in a Mogappair based hospital for angioplasty that most of his medical bills were covered by the insurance. He explained that he had to pay an amount of Rs 3500 for his wifes plus Rs 200 to Rs 500 per day for her food and beverages etc. If the patient has any viral infection then the risk of mortality and morbidity could increase by 20%. This was pointed out by hospital management and infectious diseases experts.

Dr. Ilankumaran Kaliamoorthy, CEO of Dr. Relas Institute of Medical Sciences, spoke about how the attendant of the affected patient must also be tested as he or she could infect any patient or others in the hospital.

It must not be forgotten that last week Vadapalani based Vijaya hospitals suspended patient care services after 50 of its doctors, nurses and paramedical staff tested positive for Coronavirus infection.
