must have noticed…
that the medicine stores in your locality shut down during the lunch
hour. It will be the similar case if it is just after 10 or 11pm at
night. If any emergency arises you will have to run a long way to
buy medicine. Owners of drug stores should be a little more considerate
to the people. Selling medicine is not always business. It means saving
people's lives as well.
Waiting for hours in a doctor's chamber and then getting a very brief
moment of the doctor's time is a common experience for the people
all around Bangladesh. Furthermore, most of the people claim that
doctor-patient relationship is never satisfactory. Consequently, people
are heading abroad for treatment. Most of the doctors have a chamber
of their own at the same time they are associated with one or more
private or government hospitals. It is very frequent that they come
late in all of these chambers, as they have to maintain a very busy
schedule. They could just maintain one chamber. It would enable them
to give more time for their patients.
There are some moments when moving a patient could be dangerous. Senior
citizens or people with disabilities for instance sometimes need regular
check up. Patients like these require house calls from doctors. Doctors
who attend house calls are very rare in our country. We need more
doctors who are willing to visit patients at home.
Every year millions of people die without proper treatment. Sometimes
because of negligence, but mostly because they cannot afford to pay
the doctors fee. All the private clinics and government hospitals
could have a weekly day fixed to provide free treatment for the destitute.
It is only human to become ill. The ill obviously needs treatment
for recovery. Which is why the business of medicine has been proven
very promising through the course of time. It is the same case in
Bangladesh, which resulted in to the mushrooming private business
enterprise, using the field of medicine. Few years ago 'clinic staff
of Dhaka maternity beat a pregnant woman to death in the city'. The
clinic was running without any license. It was all over the news back
then. Not just this one incident, there are more instance of malpractice
in the private clinics running without license. Lack of supervision
and the greed for money has led to a reign of malpractice in medicine
sector. This has to stop.
