Accidents are great levellers. They don't differentiate between the rich and poor, social class or religion. The difference between death and life in many cases is medical intervention in the shortest possible time. This becomes particularly relevant when the accident victim is alone or with someone who is also injured. The ability to afford medical help at that point in time should be the least of all concerns. Every person should have the right to receive the best medical assistance possible. Everyone has the right to live. Hence SPARSH Hospital believes that everyone has right to resuscitation. SPARSH foundation will bear all initial costs of resuscitation for unknown patients for the first 24 hours after the accident. Even in instances where there is difficulty in identifying next of kin or family for more then two days, all patients will receive the very best treatment available till their family is contacted. Once the patient is stabilized and resuscitated the patient can choose whether to stay on for further treatment or shifted to any other hospital according to their or their family's choice
