NHRC to hear patients’ complaints against hospitals

For the first time, the human rights commission will hear grievances that patients and their relatives have against private hospitals. The first of six such hearings, which are scheduled across the country over the next six months (see box), will be on January 6 and 7, at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), Deonar. About 115 complaints—against both public and private hospitals in Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat and Rajasthan—will be heard by members of the National Human Rights Commission.
