Activists against plan to bring govt hospitals under new Act 28.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The state government is all set to bring public sector hospitals under the revised Karnataka Medical Establishments Act. The decision, however, has not gone down too well with several activists and volunteers. The government has now decided to include government hospitals under the same Act which was hitherto known as the Karnataka Private Medical Establishments Act. This would mean a change in the nomenclature of the Act. The previous Act laid down certain conditions on private hospitals like compulsory registration and display of price list. This was among the primary announcements made at a joint press meet addressed by KRRamesh Kumar, minister for health and family welfare, and retired Supreme Court judge, Justice Vikramjit Sen, on Friday. The state government had constituted an expert committee with representatives from public and private sectors with Justice Sen as its chairman to amend the KPME Act. The committee has recommended that government hospitals also be monitored by the same Act. Akhila ...

'Karnataka tops in NUHM spending' 21.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Almost 1,000 officials and elected representatives from 200 cities across India are set to be trained by the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad, and the Administrative Staff College of India, in better implementation of the National UrbanHealth Mission (NUHM). "A vulnerability mapping is being done to understand what individual urban areas need and where the funds are to be channelised," K Rajeswara Rao, joint secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, said here on Friday. The official said he had written to all the mayors in Karnataka to ensure the efficient use of the allocated funds, and called for improved focus and framing of guidelines. Earlier, speaking at an NUHM workshop for urban local bodies, Rao said Karnataka was the top spender of funds sanctioned under the scheme in the past year. It has spent Rs 99 crore. Rathan Kelkar, mission director, National Health Mission, Karnataka, said the state had unutilised funds of Rs 38 crore as it didn't use up the money sanctioned ...

Constitute authority to enforce medical establishments Act, say voluntary groups 21.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Private hospital managements have asked the state government to bring even government hospitals under the ambit of the new medical establishments act. The Karnataka Private Medical Establishments (KPME) Act now oversees the functioning of only private hospitals. However, in a discussion organised by voluntary organisations on Friday, apprehensions were expressed about the private hospitals' demand. "It is wrong to weigh government set-ups by the same parameters as that of the private hospitals. It could lead to a gradual shutdown of the public healthcare set-up," said Akhila Vasan from the Karnataka Janaaroyga Chaluvali. The volunteers sought making the patient the prime focus of the Act and not just private hospitals. "The proposed patient rights must be guaranteed and protected under the Act," said Vinay Sreenivasa, member, Alternative Law Forum. The Karnataka Janaaroyga Chaluvali recommended that there be a constitution of a separate competent authority at the state and district levels to enforce the ...
