HIV is one of the most devastating diseases that can be encountered by any patient. It is severe not only in the cause of being life taking for the patient but also because of all the treatment that they face in the wake of this disease.
Since times immemorial it has been seen that there have been innumerable cases where in patients have been complaining that the doctors are not working right enough in the direction of helping the patients but rather work in the direction of making them feel out of the society and feel unwanted.
As a result of this it has become a mandatory task to make sure that hospitals provide the much needed are and react to these patients so that they re not deprived of any basic quality (Lawrence K., 1982).
