Banning Hospitals Who Cannot Treat Well

Few days back, in Hyderabad, a person got chest pain and went to a hospital. The duty doctor could not diagnose it properly, and in two hours that person died. Now, I see requests from few people to ban the hospital.

There is a lot of difference among the doctors in their capabilities, experience and time needed to save a person. One cannot expect that, every doctor in the world should be able to save a person who is going to die in two hours. If that is the case, then we can close more than 90% of the hospitals.

If one is injured in a fatal accident, they won't go to an RMP doctor for the treatment. In the same way, if the disease is major, then they should go to only the best hospital. There is no point in going to a not so great hospital and then blaming that hospital.
