VIP stands for Very Important Person! Who is that person? Of course at hospitals all patients are VIPS! Hospitals are established to serve them. Patients without consideration of social status, gender, race, creed and place demand and deserve our utmost respect, sincere attention and care. Sadly this is however not the prevailing VIP culture at many hospitals in Pakistan! An entirely different “VIP”
culture exists which may vary from hospital to hospital and from department to departent. No doubt at some places true VIP culture e
ists as mentioned above.
