This edition of THE PRESCRIPTION brings up news on the miserable tragedy that occurred in Punjab state of India where poor elderly people lost their sight after use of suspected infected equipment to remove cataracts by doctors at a free eye surgery camp. Such news makes us feel sad and worried about the dilapidated state of healthcare in our nation. Though we find that states like Maharashtra are taking and making actions against non-compliance (find under National Injections) to bring in back good health within the state but still there is much lagging all across our country in medicine, devices, diagnostic kits and patient care.
