Apart from this, it was said that the daily fees of doctors will be Rs 1000 in the hospital. Apart from this, there was a directive that rent of private hospital beds should be taken as before. In this, Justice Asim Kumar Banerjee, chairman of the West Bengal Clinical Establishment Regulatory Commission, said that hospitals would not be able to charge more than Rs 1,000 a day for bed rent. Apart from this, if you have to go to the doctor more than once for critical care, then you can take an additional Rs 1000, plus the hospital will have to give a discount of 10 percent on all medicines and other tests of the patient.
