India is a developing country and it has achieved many milestones in the field of technology. However, the technology does not define the development. The basic requirements are still overlooked in India. If we look at the healthcare field, it is underdeveloped. The ambulance is a basic need and it plays a decisive role however the ambulance facility is poor in India. So, today we will compare Indian ambulance with the ambulance of other countries. Let us see, how far we have to go.
1. Basic Facilities
Some basic facilities like oxygen cylinder and space for a doctor are required in an ambulance. However, the Indian ambulance lacks these facilities. The Indian ambulance face the space issues as the vehicles used for the ambulance is Maruti Omni or another small vehicle.
2. Unregistered Ambulances
It is almost impossible to count the unregistered ambulances in India. The number of unregistered ambulances in India is quite high. Furthermore, these ambulances charge extra money for their services.
3. Vehicles For Ambulance
As we have mentioned earlier, the ambulance plays a critical job. Therefore, there should be no compromise with someone’s life. To conclude, the best vehicles should be used for these jobs. However, old vans are used for this purpose in India. All in all, these vehicles only look like an ambulance but do not work like an ambulance.
4. Arrival Time
The ambulance is technically the life savior. If we talk about the developed countries, the ambulance takes only 5-10 minutes to reach the spot. However, the Indian ambulance got no time limit. In most of the cases, it reaches the spot after the death of the patient.
5. Comfortable Beds
The beds inside an ambulance should be comfortable. There are the majority of chances that the patient would be under the immense pain. Hence, he should feel comfortable inside the ambulance.
No matter what milestone we achieve in other fields, if the basic needs are not fulfilled, we are nowhere near the development. Therefore, the Govt. should invest in the healthcare facilities. What do you say? Share your thoughts in the comments.
