Ask Questions about Health, Homeopathy, Medicine - Get Answers from Experts and Peers!
I have a query - this will be more for Indian homeopaths. I have a room in a polyclinic. Here recently bio-medical waste disposal has begun via an agency who collects the bio-medical waste from individual doctors (they are not collecting on a general polyclinic basis) and I presume charges are based on quantum of bio-medical waste generated by individuals.
I, as a homeopath, generate no bio-medical waste at all. Yet, the Agency wants me to believe that being a 'Dr.' and having a registration number makes it mandatory for me to pay.
I do not generate any of the 10 categories of bio-medical waste. So I don't see why the agency should expect me to pay for a facility I will not use.
Any views, thoughts, opinions, experiences about this?

For the sake of joke,
At least ask them to get some potentially infectious and dangerous waste and not general waste from your dust-bin to make it logical to charge you.
Seriously, the mandatory thing can be challenged, it should always depend as many homeopath practice other methods of medicine too.

It not right for them to ask payment. Maybe they can see that you are wealthy to give them donation. However, the Institute of Medicine, part of the National Academy of the Sciences, has compiled a report describing developments in health care spending. Among other conclusions, the IOM found that an enormous amount of money is down to healthcare waste, or on anything but helping patients. Medical waste, such as unneeded treatments and administrative overhead, makes up about $750 billion each year.
