 Health Minister Says State Governments Responsible for Treatment of Accident Victims

The state governments are responsible for the treatment of accident victims in hospitals as 'health' is a state subject, the Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said.

In a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Azad said the Union Government has enacted the Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act, 2010, which makes provision for minimum standards of facilities, services and minimum requirement of personnel for registration and regulation of the Clinical establishments .
