Posted by Raj's blog on October 18, 2007

contact lens

Avoid using contact lens when you have got to do with overheating and flames…
I got an information from my friend about the true story happened to a 21 year old guy. He wore a pair of contact lenses during a barbecue party. While, he was barbecuing, he stared at the fire charcoals. After a few seconds, he started To scream for help and moved rapidly, jumping up and down. No one in the Party knew why… When he arrived at the Hospital, the doctor said he’ll be Blind permanently courtesy of the contact lenses that he had worn. Contact Lenses are made by plastics, and the heat from the charcoal melted his Contact lenses.

DO NOT WEAR CONTACT LENSES WHERE OVERHEATING AND FLAMES ARE CONCERNED…

Beware of contact lens.

Right to Emergency Care – Supreme Court

Posted by Raj's blog on October 4, 2007

supreme court The Supreme Court has ruled that all injured persons especially in the case of road traffic accidents, assaults, etc., when brought to a hospital / medical centre, have to be offered first aid, stabilized and shifted to a higher centre / government centre if required.

It is only after this that the hospital can demand payment or complete police formalities.

In case you are a bystander and wish to help someone in an accident, please go ahead and do so.

Your responsibility ends as soon as you leave the person at the hospital.
The hospital bears the responsibility of informing the police, first aid, etc.
