Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday said that doctors should stop subjecting patients for unnecessary tests in private laboratories and should not treat patients with business mind.
He was speaking after inaugurating the newly constructed gallery type auditorium, gallery type lecture hall and the water tank of Alappuzha Medical College Hospital here, reports ToI.
Vijayan said that the state government has received complaints from people that doctors are sending patients for unnecessary tests and buying medicines.
“The people have talked about the business mind-sets of doctors while treating the patients. Some section of doctors, who have nexus with laboratories and medical stores, should stop it,” he said.
The chief minister also asked the staff and doctors of Alappuzha Medical College Hospital to treat even ordinary people who approach for treatment at the hospital in more friendly manner.
