Give importance to life and not money. Money can be earned but not Health.

When the situation comes to the doctor’s family he will realize the pain. Money matters not the condition of the patient.

The lack of medical negligence cost life of a woman. The doctors cannot be so careless about the patient. The action has to be taken on the doctor.
