Obligation to provide special care and privileges to terminally ill patients
Following precautions have been advised by the Court:

-The patient as well as relatives and friends of terminally ill patients need special care, and at times, even some privileges like permission to stay at the patients' bedside beyond the permitted period, etc

-In case of a patient's death in the absence of relatives/attendants, special efforts must be made to inform the near relatives at the earliest possible moment

-Not providing a female 'ayah' (ward assistant) to a female patient is negligence. Hospitals and nursing homes must ensure that there are adequate numbers of nurses and ward assistants, both male and female, available round the clock

-Patients admitted without paying any fees or on humanitarian grounds are also entitled for equal care and attention
