Trauma Care / Accident Specialist
I have been coming across a news every 2/3 day that something happened to somebody in a road accident. I just heard that somebody passed away in a bike accident in Pune and so called best Jehangir Hospital didn't have a trauma / accident specialist. I don't have any details per se, but can we start a thread and make it a sticky in an appropriate header where we can have all the trauma care specialist address.
Mod, please consider this thought as it could possibly save numerous lives if someone knows about it and has GPPS access to Team-BHP.

I had someboy close to me die of heart attack, and I fail to understand why the doctors did not have a sense of urgency as i see in other parts of the world (probably where you heard trauma care from). one doctor refers to a bigger hospital (guess he knew it was a bad case), other doctor waits for the nurse/assistant, assistant asks you to relax and leave the patient to him, opens his tools, keeps talking to his buddies and five minutes later declares the patient dead. no CPR, no infibrillator, no concern towards a life.
unless we start respecting others lives (for that matter, look at people blocking ambulances' path on road), we will not be able to build a trauma network. AFAIK, all doctors are trained in life saving techniques. it's a matter of willingness and concern, that i find missing altogether unfortunately.
Off topic, I have heard stories of my doctor friends being insensitized towards human body (mostly thru autopsies) so that they could function better. and it's true that if you care about somebdy, it becomes difficult to operate upon him/her. wondering this is the reason our doctors don't show any concern.
PS: still it's a good idea to have a list of advertised emergency numbers together classified by cities. I am sure some centers would be good at it.

Have heard good feedback about Ambulance services in Bombay. They charge ~3k per person per year, but that might come handy some day.
But they don't operate out of city limits.
