Manipal Hospitals Assists In-Patients to Cast Votes in Karnataka Assembly Elections

Manipal Hospitals in Karnataka, India, has implemented a novel initiative to help in-patients cast their votes in the state’s assembly elections. The hospital approached the BBMP commissioner and the chief electoral officer with the proposal, which was welcomed and supported by the authorities. After a thorough health check-up and approval from their respective doctors, 16 patients were assisted to polling booths in hospital-registered vehicles. The hospital provided medical support to all 16 patients to ensure their safety during the process.

The patients chosen for this initiative included transplant survivors, patients under dialysis, an accident patient, post TURP, patients who are under chemotherapy, and patients recovering from lung cancer. Although many in-patients expressed interest in availing the service, only those who fitted into the medical criteria were selected.

The Manipal Hospitals team received full support from the returning officer of the respective constituencies, with a letter stating approval to help in-patients cast their votes seamlessly. Two high-end cases were transported to their respective constituencies under medical staff, including nurses and a doctor.
