another strike


another strike has crippled the services of government hospitals....this time its by government doctors demanding the regularization of all the contract based employed doctors and protection for doctors against atrocities and assault[by patients]!...it was effectively started from monday ....many government hospitals has been effected by this and all the opd,wards and emergency services have been suspended there....
in our hospital[Victoria and Vanivilas] only emergency services have been functioning this week and hence many referred cases from other govn hospitals have been coming here....in fact on friday they even refused to conduct mtp[medical termination of pregnancy] on a 4 month lady[unmarried] since it was not an emergency!!.....

What? Doctors there need to protect their rights against patients??? Why, what they do to them?!

And well, why do Doctors need to have premanent contract? Are they not also doing private practice? Most Doctors here are do that...so that issue on contract is not much of a big deal. It is awful when basic needs such as health is paralyzed just bec of some issues that could have been discussed early on, no?

I hope things do get to be worked out soon and that services are back to normal.

some sectors seem to think that strike is the best n easiest way to get wat they want..im not sure they stop n assess the impact before goin on strike!

n MTP..is that equal to abortion? Is that legally allowed in india?

doctors too are humans..Nobody has the right to attack them..But still doctors too remember the oath they take when they enter their practice..I think all doctors should carry a copy of "the STORY OF SAN MICHELE" them...The autobiography of the swiss doc whose name i cannot write without spelling errors..(Axel mungthe.) Pardomn me for the mistakes..
but the post was very appropriate..
take care..
