Most of the peripheral hospitals, though busy, are mostly under-utilized, due to the dearth of full-time specialists doctors and honorary specialists, who often avoid taking responsibility due to “lack of modern facilities”. In fact, even in specialty hospitals, there is lack of lifesaving equipment like ventilators, and specialized doctors.
