Rajasthan doctors join nationwide striking colleagues, boycott work
By Hindustantimes 17-Jun-2019
The statement released on Sunday by Rajasthan state branch of IMA read, “ As per instructions of IMA headquarter all doctors of Rajasthan will also keep our health care centres closed from 6 am of June 17 to June 18. All emergency services, however, will continue. No outpatient department (OPD) and general patients will be seen during this period.”
A press conference was also held by ARISDA in Pink City Press Club on Sunday in which they informed that they will observe June 17 as a protest day against increasing violence with doctors, referring to the recent incident in West Bengal in which a doctor was brutally attacked by a violent mob at the NRS Medical College, Kolkata.
ARISDA state president Dr Ajay Choudhary said, “ARISDA condemns the attack made by a mob in a hospital in West Bengal. We demand strict action against the accused and protection for doctors. Safety and security in hospitals have been a matter of great concern and need to be addressed.”
He added, “ARISDA has declared a zero-tolerance policy against violence on doctors and healthcare establishments.”
The members of ARISDA also demanded a national law against violence in hospitals to be brought in urgently providing a minimum of seven years imprisonment.
Choudhary said that on Monday, doctors of their association will boycott their work for 24 hours. However, they will continue to provide the emergency, medico-legal and post-mortem services.
