I agree.
If you by choice want noone with you,  maybe, you should pay them to assist you beyond usual responsibilities of doctors and nurses.
A courteous request also goes a long way.

Most  sighted patients   in any hospital for that matter do have someone as
their either their family member/relative.   It is for the hospital to
decide whether a patient needs an assistant subject to  patients
illness/diseases.   Obviously do have some responsibility towards the safety
of the patient and hence assistant is a must.  No need to make a big fuss on this matter.

RPWD has provision on non-discrimination and there is a specific provision on healthcare in Section 25 which obligations are on appropriate government.

If you can follow-up, then it can be a great opportunity to put pressure on MCI to notify standards on this.

Before going, I had met the main doctor, Dr. Srikanth in the Sreedhareeyam clinic Bangalore and discussed plans about going to the hospital without an assistant. He suggested that I have an assistant for the first 3 days since I was new and then I could manage alone. So this is what I did. However, on the second last day before my assistant was due to leave, the doctors started saying it would not be possible for me to stay alone. The reason they gave me was that I did not have enough vision to manage. I had already arranged laundry, cafeteria services, etc and there was absolutely nothing I could not do alone. However, they still said no and I had to return.

treatment and finally agreed if I take the most expensive accomodation with an assistant.

denying a person with disability into a  hospital/clinic without an assistant. I really do not need an assistant nor do I feel comfortable having one. Does the 2016 PWD Act have anything on this? The two hospitals are private, not government funded.
