AIIMS launches ‘adopt a patient’, to seek donation

| | New Delhi | in Sunday Pioneer

AIIMS on Saturday launched ‘adopt a patient’ policy under which it seeks public donations for patients who are unable to continue their treatment or bear cost of buying equipment needed for rehabilitation at home.

“Under ‘adopt a patient’ policy, people can donate for patients who are waiting for surgery because they don’t have money to buy equipment required for rehabilitation at home,” said MC Mishra, AIIMS Director.

And then there are cases where a patient does not have money for implants or their families abandon them and they are unable to bear cost of continuing their treatment.
