by the way last year ramaiah memorial hospital was ok.  but now we can see the things have changed, it is not clean any more and more like a business, in micu the doc and nurses talk loud and no silence at all disturbing patients, some department are still good like neurology department.

BASHEER Nov 11th, 2011 04:10 PM

The ratings of the hospitals are normally dependent on the no. of beds, international ratings, no.of doctors specialized and no of surgeries ( specialized) being carried out.
I feel the basis on which the above rating is arrived should be part of the rating accreditation process
