Regulatory body asks pvt hosp to return Rs 1 7L to patient s family
| Saturday | 17th October, 2020
The Commission however apprehends that what the patients' family members claimed might have been correct.
The patient party was charged Rs 3.5 lakh but no bill was issued as claimed by the family members of the patient.
After hearing the case the WBCERC asked the hospital authorities to pay back Rs 1.7 lakh to the patient's family members while the hospital would keep the remaining amount of Rs 1.8 lakh.
But they charged the patient Rs 1,700 which is much higher than the cost in a top private diagnostic center in the city.
The hospital claimed that they did the test from outside as their machine was not functioning.
