That depends on the mobility and illness of the patient, assistant is need for purchasing medicines in particular.  Although it may not be must but always advised/preferred

People with sight do not have that ‘someone’ because of any insistence. It’s purely a choice and availability factor. Do note though, forms do require contact details of a person. But no hospital has ever insisted on physical presence 24 by 7.

And are we then saying that if you don’t have an attendent, you don’t get the treatment at all?
