The Supreme Court on Monday sought a response from the Centre and all states on a plea seeking a ban on the practice of private hospitals fleecing patients by forcing them to buy medicines from their own pharmacies with an inflated price.A bench of Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao issued a notice to the Union government and all states on a writ petition filed by Sidharth Dalmia, a law student, and his advocate-father Vijay Pal Dalmia.The petitioners sought directions to ensure that appropriate notice boards were put at prominent places in the hospitals and the pharmacies that the patients and their attendants were free to purchase medicines, medical devices, implants and other consumables from the vendor of their choice, including the hospital pharmacy."The government has become a silent spectator and collaborator in the fraud being perpetuated by hospitals on people from different financial backgrounds and strata of life, thereby becoming a party to the violation of the rights, including the right to life, guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution," they said.
