India TV Chairman and editor-in-chief Rajat Sharma

India TV Chairman and editor-in-chief Rajat Sharma on Sunday said that “the relation of trust between the doctors and their patients have weakened”.

“The relation of trust between the doctors and their patients have weakened. The most important thing is to rebuild that trust,” Sharma said during a seminar organised by the Max Hospital.

“The primary aim of doctors is social service. Making money should be their secondary aim. We hear people saying that the patient was unnecessarily kept on the ventilator. People say that because the doctors have to earn profit for the hospital, so they kept the patient for 15 days while the need was only 5 days,” the editor-in-chief further said.

“And these are such questions that when we investigate about the same, no one has an authentic answer. This creates doubt. In fact, many hospitals have turned into commercial centres,” Sharma said.

Only the serious doctors can stop this, he stressed.

In the seminar, Rajat Sharma was the chief guest. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA OP Sharma and some well-known doctors of Delhi graced the event.
