A Doctor's Strike Was Inevitable in West Bengal's Broken Health System
By The Wire 22-Jul-2019
This round of agitation started after the relatives of an elderly patient, who died on Monday at a medical college in Kolkata, alleged that he died due to negligence. Things took a turn for the worse soon after as hundreds of people entered the college premises and thrashed junior doctors brutally.
It must be noted that this is not a one-off incident. Cases of vandalism and assaults on doctors in hospitals for reasons such as a patient’s death because of alleged medical negligence have become a regular phenomenon in West Bengal. The situation became so alarming a year and a half ago that the state government wanted to introduce taekwondo for self-defence for medical students in all government medical colleges.
