Medical Profession Losing Its Aura of Sanctity with the Rising Cases of Malpractice and Negligence

(Business Insider) – Even the best private hospitals are prone to medical negligence so the percentage of error in government run hospitals is much higher. Often cases are not reported, for either the patient is unaware of the medical malpractice and or does not have resources to fight the system. Studies have shown that compared to USA, India has almost double the number of cases of medical malpractice.
