    I THINK THERE ARE TWO POSSIBILITIES , ALL MOST ALL THE COMPLICATED CASES WERE REFERRED TO THIS HOSPITALS AT THE LIST MOMENT OR ARE WERE HARDLY ANY COMMITED , QUALIFIED, SKILLFUL DOCTORS IN THAT HOSPITALS .OR MAY BE THE BOTH. COMING TO PROTOCOLS , IT MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE TO GO AS PER THE PROTOCOL . OR PROTOCOLS MAY NOT WORK FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE . AT TIMES , RATHER QUITE OFTEN TREATMENT HAS TO BE PATIENT SPECIFIC , SPECIALLY IN CRITICAL CARE CASES , WHICH IS HIGHLY DEMONDING WITH DECICATED TEAM MEMBERS ROUND THE CLOCK. I THINK IT\’S HARD TO FIND SUCH HOSPITALS IN INDIA SPECIALLY WITH SERVER SHORTAGE OF QUALIFIED COMMITED SKILLFUL DOCTORS, INFRASTRUCTURE, AND MONEY .
