Make it mandatory for all hospitals to declare number of Caesarean deliveries #SafeBirth
Caesarean deliveries have become a business. The hospitals and doctors are making money off unsuspecting women and pushing them towards surgical deliveries. Even though serious complications were not detected, I was cut open to deliver my baby. I wanted to have a natural birth but had to undergo a C-section as it was presented to be more ’scientific, modern and risk-free’. I was misled, manipulated, confused and my choice was overriden. For many of us, the right to informed-refusal or consent during childbirth is hardly an option either due to lack of awareness or the high-handed attitude of doctors. It was a long, painful, depressing recovery for me and when I looked into this issue, what I found was alarming. India’s C-section rate is growing exponentially. The fact that private hospitals have a much higher rate of C-sections than public hospitals has a direct correlation to the fact that surgical deliveries cost so much more than normal ones in these facilities. Recent studies show that C-sections lead to a higher risk of post-partum depression and lower breastfeeding rate in women and diseases like obesity and diabetes in children. Despite its adverse effects on maternal and child health, hospitals and doctors are indiscriminately conducting C-sections to make more money. To discourage this trend, women need to be made aware of the C-section rates of different hospitals and maternity homes, so that they can choose their hospitals carefully. That’s why I, with support of the NGO Birth India, started this petition asking the Women and Child Development ministry to issue an advisory to the Medical Council of India to Make it mandatory for all doctors and hospitals to declare the percentage of Caesarean delivery rates to patients. Conduct enquiry against those with abnormally high C-section rate. Frame clear guidelines for conducting Caesarean to safeguard the health and rights of women and children World Health Organisation (WHO) norms prescribe that C-section deliveries should be ideally 10-15 per cent of the total number of deliveries in the country. However, in urban Telengana, 74.8% of the private sector deliveries are by C-section and it is as high as 41% in Kerala and it is 58% in Tamil Nadu, according to a report by the ICMR School of Public Health. It is important that even women are made aware of the impact of Caesarean sections, which truly is an emergency recourse and not a routine medical procedure. The fact is that only 10% of births should be via C-section, however, in Indian private hospitals that rate is close to 50%. This is a serious health risk and the government has to take action NOW! Sign my petition and ask the Women and Child Development ministry to end this harmful practice by hospitals. Image Courtesy: abdn.ac.uk
Petition to Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu
Emergency Medical Care Centers in Railway stations, Trains and Bus stands.
Friends, This is to bring to your attention & necessary action about those people who lost their precious life in railway stations and trains because of no medical help. I lost my father on 20th January 2017 in Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station while boarding train to Chennai in Rajdhani Express (one of the most prestigious and fastest train in India), due to lack of medical facility. My father & his friends has already boarded the train and was waiting for departure, when he felt chest congestion, his friends approached the T.T but they informed that only in Agra medical help can be provided (after 2 hours). They got down and approached the Superintendent for wheelchair (given) who also informed that an ambulance will be waiting but was not available. It is highly disappointing that negligence of medical aid in major railway station & train in the capital city for the passengers has not been provided. It is my kind request to our Honourable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi and Railway Minister Shri. Suresh Prabhu to provide an emergency medical care centre in railway stations, trains & Bus stands in India for the well being of our fellow citizens/human beings. It is a small step from my family to avoid the situation we’re going through for our fellow citizens. Thanks for your Support, Hemalatha S
Petition to Smt Umashree, Karnataka medical council, CloudNine hospitals
Suspension of mentioned Doctor's Licenses , Compensation for mental, physical,emotional and financial trauma and a public apology.
This petition is To ensure the medical fraternity is liable and responsible for their actions. I'm 29 years old and I love and adore children.. My husband and I never wanted to wait to start a family..and my dreams were shattered because of the negligence of doctors who played with my life. I lost healthy reproductive organs, because cloud nine hospitals - supposed to be one of the best for birthing and fertility in Bangalore decided to goof up during minor procedures that has ruined the best years of my life. In May 2013 I was asked by my then gynaec to get the HSG test because I hadn't conceived naturally. I was asked to go to Cloud Nine fertility because apparently they were the best . Dr. Uma who was supposed to do my procedure didn't even take the time to meet, inspite of me repeatedly asking to see her before they gave me the anaesthesia. Dr. Uma maheshwari left a piece of Gauze inside my vagina ,during the HSG test (hysterosalpingogram, or HSG is an important test of female fertility potential. The HSG test is a radiology procedure usually done in the radiology department of a hospital or outpatient radiology facility. It is very routine and is done within 45 minutes. It's usually the first step before any infertility treatment is started by gynaecologists. ). Very ironically my HSG results were normal. I had no tubal blockage. And they saw dye spillage from both tubes. She didn't prescribe any antibiotics ( which they should) and 11 days later I had to pull it out of my vagina because it had caused a plug. The gauze was full of pus and blood and we didn't know how that would ruin our lives in the coming months. At that time the clinic director for Cloud Nine fertility, underplayed the situation, told us that "whatever goes in will eventually come out" . They just refunded the amount for the procedure and that was it. Exactly 5 months later in January 2014 , while going in for routine scans for fertility treatments , they saw a massive infection in my left tube . We were so scared and we consulted several senior doctors who told us it was the gauze and there was no other option, but to operate . I was operated upon on July 2014 and they discovered a HAEMATOSALPHINX ( blood collection in the tube ) . This was thanks to the massive pelvic infection from the gauze. Here was where Dr. Suman Singh messed up. She didn't remove the clipped tube during the surgery. She left the dead tissue from the tube inside itself, ( which they should because generally as per all doctors opinions, nothing dead should be left behind in the body ). My troubles did not end there. In December I contracted very high fever and had massive pain on my left lower abdomen. In my scans with A doctor , (who was now looking after my case) a cyst was clearly visible and it was bigger than my uterus. He suspected it may be a chocolate cyst and said surgery was the only way to deal with this. On January 12th 2015 , upon opening me up , they were shocked to see that the tube, that was left behind had wrapped itself around the left ovary ( which had swollen to 3 times its size) and had become a haemorrhagic cyst bigger than my uterus at 7.5cms x 7.5 cms . There was also a lot of needle trauma from the July surgery . The surgery was life threatening surgery (6 hours) where I lost my left tube, left ovary . There was a lot of loss of blood and the cyst was on the verge of rupturing. Our doctor in plain words told my husband that "God has been kind to us and that another day and the cyst would have ruptured causing internal bleeding and eventually loss of life) I've had 3 surgeries , all before I could turn 29. These years should have been the best ,healthiest and fertile years of my life. I had healthy tubes , healthy ovaries which I've lost fully thanks to the negligence of these 2 doctors, who played around with my life. We've spent the last years running form pillar to post and visiting various senior doctors who were shocked when they heard about the incident with the gauze. It has also drained us emotionally mentally and financially. In India, fertility is not insured. Every surgery had to be paid from our pockets.. Surgeries mount to 1.5 lakhs to 2 lakhs on an average. It has taken a lot of courage to come out like this and bring it all out in the open, on social media, Twitter and Facebook. On the 14th of this month , we had a meeting at the same hospital , with only the two Doctors present. They made a mockery of our situation and the only thing they had to say was " how can we help you" !!
Petition to Medical Council of India, Ministry of Health and Family welfare
Stop Indian Medical Malpractices and Negligence by setting up Medical Review System
Doctors and Healthcare providers are not Gods but humans, who can be ignorant, unethical, inexperienced or make mistakes which put the patient at risk from a disability to death. On top of their mistakes, they are ignorant in providing the correct medical records to patients family to cover-up their mistakes and shield themselves from any legal action. We urge the Ministry of Health and Family welfare and Medical Council of India to make the healthcare professionals and service providers more transparent and accountable of their actions by 1. Setting out an accountable medical peer review committee for each and every medical case in same or different hospital: Bank clerks have manager over them to approve their work, Government officers have supervisors over them, Engineers have their Review and Test teams which sign and approve of work done by them, then why none is accountable to review and validate/authorise/approve the medicine and its dosage, tests and surgeries/procedures suggested by a doctor or test conducted by a diagnostic centre? 2. Daily updated medical records, test reports, video recorded surgeries, ICU care LIVE/recorded footage be available to the patient's family: ICUs and Operation theatres are closed doors behind which family members have no idea what malpractices/negligence is being carried out by doctors or nursing staff. Test reports and medical records are not provided to family members so they know nothing about which medicines are being injected in which quantity on daily basis. The records and reports are not released until the patient is discharged which doesn't happen until a huge hospitalisation bill has been prepared by hospitals. Unnecessary tests and procedures are conducted on patient which not only put a financial burden on family but also adversely effects the patients health and risk his/her life. In some cases, it becomes too late to recover patient because hospital was busy making money out of expensive drugs and unnecessary/careless surgeries. It is the responsibility of the government to provide efficient medical review system to stop medical malpractices which is putting life of million of Indian and tourist patients at risks. Please sign this petition to help fight against medical malpractices.

How can a non-MBBS teach MBBS students!
In medical colleges, high school students enter and they become Doctors. They are taught by Doctors, unfortunately, but not always. Medical Council of India (statuary body that maintains the standard of education) have given permission to colleges that they can Appoint maximum 30% Non-Medical teachers like MSc and PhD in concerning pre & Para-clinical Departments and upto 50% in Bio-chemistry who teach students of 1st year and 2nd-year MBBS. However, they don't have clinical knowledge but they can support medical teacher. Unfortunately, we had very fewer doctors who are willing to teach in colleges in past because they had to do clinical practice. So due to this reason, MCI had to take this decision. But now in India more than enough specialist doctors are available but still they are screened with Non-medical teachers and on the basis of that single exam/ interview merit list they are posted in colleges. For example, RPSC says in advertisement that "नियमानुसार मेडिको/नॉन मेडिको का अनुपात 70:30 है।" it is misinterpreted Regulation) Sometimes they may be more sound in theory of syllabus but this does not make them more qualified. Sometimes we see a final year student who passed the exam for the post where that qualification needed but he is not marked as eligible because he does not have qualifying degree. so the first criteria is the qualification degree. a non-medical person always has less qualifying degree. they were given chance just because of lack of doctors in past. but now somewhere they are more than 30% by promotion or due to Medical Teacher left the job. but still, new non-medical teachers are taken so they are becoming more than 30%. Even to become a 1st grade school teacher in senior secondary education department there is additional BEis needed but to become a assistant professor in medical college just MSc is enough. At the time of Interview it is compulsary that MD/MS degree must be recognized by MCI, but for MSc Ph.D. recognisation by MCI is not required/applicable. Even a permitted but not recognised MD/MS does not get relaxation but a non medico is relaxed in term of recognisation. why????? now please think.. perfection of future doctor taught by non medical teacher, who can just teach them theory but could not teach them application of theory in Field.. there are parts in non clinical subjects which must be correlate with clinical subjects like medicine and surgery. For example in 1st year subject there is a practical in syllabus known as "clinical physiology". in this stethoscope is used and they can not explain that what they would listen in a patient. as well as MCI itself compare 2 these qualification medical and non medical in medical subject which is elaborated at end of this petition. standard of medical education is falling. persons who can not crack medical entrance test to become doctor are now teaching medical students.this is just like 10th class student is taught by grduate. yes he can teach but not as perfectly as a post graduate teacher . And why , if post graduate teacher is available!! so we are writing to govt of rajasthan, and MCI and we want your support. if you want that our society/country must get well studied competent doctors please support us by signing this petition. here is comparison of permitted qualifying degrees of medical and non-medical persons. it is illustrated by MCI in Para 18 of counter affidavit of MCI which is taken as consideration in judgment of D.B. Special Appeal (writ) No. 1878/2014 in THE HIGH COURT OF JUDICIATURE FOR RAJASTHAN AT JAIPUR BENCH, JAIPUR (official judgment file can be downloaded from website of Rajasthan high court http://hcraj.nic.in/courtnic.htm http://rhccasestatus.raj.nic.in/smsrhcb/rhbcis/judfile.asp?ID=SAW%20%20&nID=1878%20%20&yID=2014&doj=20160331 1.

Petition to MR. J.P.NADDA, Maneka Gandhi, Chief minister Shri Devendra Fadnavis
Recognise STAMMERING as disorder/diversity,Take steps to STOP MAKING FUN OF STAMMERERS .
"P..PL..PLEASE STOP MAKING FUN OF US...AND DON'T THINK OF US AS DUMBS! WE JUST NEED MORE TIME TO FINISH AT TIMES "....says a first year college student recalling the bad incidents of his life. This repetition/ prolongation or inability to get words out is called "STAMMERING/STUTTERING". It is a tense struggle to get words as they get stuck sometimes. This struggle causes freeezing or distortion on their faces and the NORMAL PERSON assumes the stammerer to be "dumb" or "unintelligent" or a "funny person' The NORMAL PERSON either stares in disgust or makes fun of them making THE PERSON WHO STAMMERS (PWS) humiliated. However, this is so untrue!!! PWS are NORMAL, INTELLIGENT PEOPLE who know what they have to speak but sometimes get stuck leading to struggle. Every moment of a day for a PWS is a struggle to get right words out. There are numerous incidents happening like :- - A child is bullied in school by friends or humiliated by some insensitive teachers - A teenager who is unable to speak his name clearly is treated as dumb - Humiliation at interviews / office place - A girl who stammers is labelled as shy and many such more incidents. In movies when the actor stammers the audience breaks into laughter without realising even once the pain experienced by a PWS. Film and Television Industry has always entertained audience by making fun of PWS. Not even once has this issue been highlighted as a NEUROLOGICAL AS WELL AS PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM. "CAN ANYONE MAKE FUN OF A PERSON WITH ANY OTHER DISABILITY???!!!" As the great star HRITHIK ROSHAN has rightly said " My stammering wasn't the problem, the stigma was!" and " Not having enough information or education was the problem, not the stutter itself. Awareness is what we need." But unfortunately, nothing has been done to create awareness or sensitise people.The media too has hardly taken any initiative. MORE THAN 10 MILLION PEOPLE IN INDIA STAMMER!! But no steps taken to create awareness like other developed countries.!! Also, the speech therapy centres are highly expensive and the underpriviliged ones cannot afford it and continue to live a life of humiliation, guilt and shame. An earnest request to our ministers ;- 1. Recognise stammer as a disorder/diversity and take steps to stop making fun of stammerers 2. Take maximum steps using the media effectively to create awareness from school level and sensitize people 3.Open free/cheap speech therapy & counselling centres at government hospitals to aid the underpriviliged. "PLEASE SIGN THIS SO THAT THE STAMMERER LEADS A LIFE OF DIGNITY....... AFTER ALL IT IS THEIR RIGHT!!!" SINCERE THANKS BHAVNA

GARBAGE MESS ON KANAKAPURA ROAD
There are many illegal garbage dumps in Bangalore and the latest on the list is the one on Kanakapura main road opposite to Jaraganahalli bus stop. Most of the garbage is strewn on the road. It is a terrible sight and a nuisance to the residents of the area and to the passersby. It reduces the width of the road and makes it hard to travel on the road due to the unbearable stench it emits. One can see hundreds of flies around the garbage which is an evidence of how unhygienic it is. It serves as food for the stray dogs and cows which may choke on the plastics. If left unattended, it can be a cause of many health hazards. This garbage dump not only affects the residents of the area, but also the children who play in the neighbouring playground and the hundreds of people who wait and board the buses in the Jaraganahalli bus stop.This garbage dump becomes more messed up when it rains. It acts as a breeding ground for diseases and mosquitoes. This garbage can be completely eradicated only with the combined efforts of the residents and the BBMP. Though the dump is cleaned every now and then, people repeatedly dump their garbage and by the end of the day, it is littered all over again. This issue can be permanently solved only when the BBMP ensures the daily door to door collection of garbage from all the houses. This will ensure that the people don't dispose their garbage on the road again. Sign this petition to let the BBMP know how this affects the residents of this locality and demand for an immediate clean up of the dump. Together, we can make Kanakapura road clean again.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is set to classify excessive video game playing as signs of a mental disorder for the first time next year 2018 without any real evidence. WHO says anyone with gaming disorder can't stop themselves from playing, basically normal gamers,while actually Its the Opposite.
