The commercialization of health services has changed image of health institutions, hospitals even of the Speciailists as business organizations with an aim to print money forgetting the golden values of humanity in our society. The panel facility provided by different organizations to their employees has become a risk to the life of the patients who is given expensive and long duration treatment and unending demand for medical tests at the Laboratories either run by the relevant hospitals or Doctors recommended for the hidden commissions.
In most of the cases the patients having a panel facility are operated upon even twice to charge lucrative fee in many cases the patients even lost their lives.
However in this situation of commercialism there are a few islands as well offering medical services to the ailing humanity with charging
any fee and Bait Ul Sakoon is one of the examples serving the people without any greed of money.
