VISITORS BEYOND VISITING HOURS TO HOSPITALISED PATIENT

It is from my experience , I can surely say that a few visitors are genuine in visiting a hospitalized patient. And they abide by the hospital visiting hours to a larger extent if not perfectly.In India specially in Govt./Public sector undertaking hospitals visitors usually crowd their patient as if there is no specified visiting hours and their absence will prove detrimental to the patient’s treatment.I think they come to show their face to the patient that they have put their attendance.This intention has been proved in the sense that, if they are asked to help the patient, may be by donating blood,helping the patient in shifting to other departments for some purpose ,they do not respond and some will hide their face and fly away.Most of time they do a harm to the patient. Because the patient can not take rest if has been advised.Instead of remaining calm patient goes to tension is describing the same illness story to each new visitor. I think patient himself might not be in a mood to talk. but has to speak to keep the face of the visitor.In this part of our country this practice contributes to a lot of cross infection to the already immune/defense compromised patient .In my opinion this sort of practice should be stopped.Not that hospitals are there in India where this visiting hours is not strictly followed.
Now the latest mode of representation is in form of mobile calls because mobile phones are now rampant in use here.And this is more easier and cost effective mode of representation before the hospitalised patint.
CAN WE BE RESPONSIBLE TO SOME EXTENT IN THIS REGARD IN HELPING OUR NEAR AND DEARS TO EARLY RECOVERY?
