On a day when IMA strikes for NMC Bill in India, it is fair to ask this Poll

I think this retweet and re-poll is a fair question to ask when the #NMC bill has been passed and the Indian Medical Association which is supposedly formed to protect the rights of the practicing doctor (Modern Medicine in India) has asked Doctors all over India to strike work today

Has really the IMA been proactive with regards to NMC ?

Has it really shown a similar protest like the one whcih was witnessed when goons protected by the West Bengal CM beat up a doctor ?

Is indeed the doctor community itself aware of the NMC bill and what it contains ?

Has the striking doctors read the whole bill or is the whole thing just a blind leading the blind / coercion of professional aquaintance ?

I am surprised that in far away land, this poll that I chanced on asks similar questions about their medical association.

You can find the poll below…

As planned we will be conducting the free #CerebralPalsy and #PaediatricOrthopaedic medical camp this month on 21st at Palakkad, Kerala. It will be held at Life Care Physiotherapy Clinic, Fort Maidan, Palak kar, Kerala.

How Many Administrators Does It Take to Run A Hospital?

Dr. Wes: How Many Administrators Does It Take to Run A Hospital?.

I always asked myself this question…

How many administrators does it take to run a hospital smoothly.

They are apparently employed to make doctors life smooth which leads to better working environment and better patient care. .. well, at least in theory. In practice, things are a lot different.

So, I started searching. I was sure I was not the only one who was having these thoughts.

This is an interesting blog article on that subject. A very short one, but serves the purpose.

How Many Administrators Does It Take to Run A Hospital?

From KevinMD:

… for every one doctor there are 5 more are employed to do administrative tasks.

And, frankly, it’s ridiculous. As Dr. Cutler says, “There is a lot of money spent doing things that in no other industry do we tolerate.”

If you want to find out how many administrators it takes to run a hospital, ask yourself how many work on the weekend.

That number should be just about right.
