BMC’s largest hospital has only one intensivist

KEM Hospital in Mumbai is struggling to fill six vacancies for intensivists in its ICUs, despite offering higher salaries. The hospital has resorted to pulling doctors from other departments to manage critically ill patients. The shortage of intensivists is also affecting the hospital's organ donation programme. Doctors are hesitant to join the hospital due to better pay and more flexible working hours in private hospitals, as well as discouraging regulations in the BMC. The BMC has decided to train its doctors in critical care medicine and has allocated 100 ICU beds in another hospital to address the crisis.
