Tank you all for your kind words.
Perhaps I may have sent a wrong message in my original post. Please allow me to clarify.
When first admitted to Zydus Anand, the care was in question, but my mother and I were able to stay with him to monitor his condition. Once he got "stabilized", even though still on ventilator, we took the risk to transport him to the Zydus Hospital Ahmedabad.
If anyone is familiar with the Zydus Complex in Ahmedabad, it is the finest there is. He remained in ICU but under one of the finest doctor, Dr Pratibha Patil and her team. Our biggest petpives were, we were cutoff from him once at Ahmedabad, except for 2 visiting time of 10 - 15 minutes, a morning Dr's consult and as needed. The team during day time was the best there could be and we are not sure about night care since we never got to see him at night. This is where I feel there is room for improvement as most patient worsen at night with lack of contentious monitoring.
So, I do believe, at lest for privet care at at Zydus Ahmedabad caliber facility, is the best there is. The challenge is, THERE IS NO MEDICINAL CURE YET. Therefore, the doctors are chasing the symptoms on a continuous bases. I feel the medical personals are getting tired form failure and family member's harrasements (we are no exception). I wished we had incorporated some Ayurvedic remedies as well along with allopathic treatments. The death rate has comedown significantly ever since the Ayurvedic remedies have been incorporated in the treatment.
All this are hind sites. But the truth is, till there is a Medicinal Cure, all we can do is preventative care, if you have to get hospitalize, even in government hospitals, incorporate Ayurvedic remedies, and hope for the best.
