Prescribing the wrong medicine or providing improper healthcare has become a serious problem lately. Very often, the doctors prescribe wrong medicines that do not cure the patients but rather cause severe illness and other disorders. People rush to the hospital to cure themselves of their illness but it is an irony that due to erroneous treatment, they get infected. Last month, my aunt who was affected with tuberculosis paid a visit to a private hospital. The doctor prescribed her some oral medicines. She took them consecutively for a week believing that those could cure her.  After a week, when she had been diagnosed, it was revealed that she was affected with lung cancer. But before taking the prescribed medicines, when she underwent various tests, the results did not show any sign of cancer. These types of problems occur due to the doctors' negligence. If they are a bit more careful, the patients would be saved from dangerous diseases.
