OPD services affected in Odisha hospitals as doctors go on strike
By Indiatoday 17-Jun-2019
Emergency and indoor services remained operational while services at the outpatient departments (OPD) were affected in several hospitals.
Junior doctors stayed away from the OPD and other non-essential health services in government medical colleges and hospitals at Berhampur, Sambalpur and Cuttack.
Superintendent of MKCG Medical College and Hospital at Berhampur, Charan Panda, said, while junior doctors and students were boycotting work, steps were taken to ensure normal functioning of emergency and OPD services.
Doctors in many government hospitals, including those in Sambalpur and several other districts, staged "symbolic" protest demonstrations instead of resorting to strike, officials said.
Emergency services in the hospitals are not being affected during the strike, according to honorary state secretary of IMA's Odisha unit, Janmejaya Mohapatra.
Organisations, including the Odisha Medical Services Association (OMSA), Odisha Medical Teachers Association OMTA), Junior Doctors Association, Resident Doctors Association, IMA Students Network and Nursing Home Association were supporting the stir, he said.
