Chinese Hospital Charged Patient 72 Hours Per Day

A man in Hunan was astonished by the high medical costs of his father’s stay in a local hospital. Scrutinizing the hospital bills, he was shocked to discover he was being charged for 72 hours of oxygen per day, for 6 days in a row. At first, the hospital refused to apologize offering only to refund 600 RMB, but when the family called the police and media, the hospital finally admitted that their nurse was not careful with her data entry, and compensated 1500 RMB.

    What’s wrong with charging for 72 hours per day ? Don’t they know that the Chinese clocks are flexible as well as super accurate ? A day can be three hours to 120 hours depending.

    Capitalism doesn’t mean day light robbery. This is robbery of sort from people who are in most vulnerable state – when you are ill.
