Jaipur: 450 private Hospitals call it a strike

Jaipur: Health services in the city came to a hilt, after 450 private hospitals and nursing homes called for an indefinite strike from early Saturday evening.

The reason for the strike has been identified to be sealing of private hospitals identifying them as commercial activity in residential areas. On Friday, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) began taking action on the above grounds and went ahead and sealed Khandaka Hospital. This move was met with strong opposition from the private hospitals which called the action ” Repressive”, notes TOI.

Early Saturday, around 4.30 pm, 450 private hospitals seized work and pasted notices outside their premises, which said “This hospital is on indefinite strike. No consultation and admission of patients will be done.

“Khandaka hospital is not the only hospital in the city which is situated in residential area. More than 90% of private hospitals are situated in residential areas. Today, they have sealed Khandaka hospital, tomorrow they will seal other such hospitals for commercial activities in residential areas,” Private Hospitals and Nursing Homes Society secretary Dr Vijay Kapoor told TOI.

With the indefinite strike of private hospitals,  patients are being diverted to city’s government hospitals including SMS Hospital, Jaipuria Hospital, Kanwatia Hospital, Bani Park Satellite Hospital, Sethi Colony Satellite Hospital.  This is probably the first time that private hospitals in the state have taken such a step.

  1. when any emergency arises with anybody,they want medical aid at nearest place,especially accident whether minor or major,roadside or household,delivery of a lady,person seeks immediate medical aid especially from a near residing doctor.what happens when an emergency patient seeks medical aid at midnight and does not find any conveyance.Some duffers do not know that now in every city there is working separate medical waste disposal management body.Otherwise there should not be any commercial activity in residential areas i.e. general stores,tea stalls,pan masaala and pan shops,milk booth,RO water supply plant,beauty parlours,boutiques,restaurants,vegetables and fruit shops etc.Are these duffers ready for all these?

    This desire of Indian doctors to behave like Indian politicians is what brings a bad name to the medical profession. Residential areas are certainly not fit for Nursing Homes……contamination of local area by medical waste is criminal…….anything goes…time to bring some regulation….time to get rid of these crooked doctors.

  3. People who are intrested can get bit by rabid dogs repeatedly. We are not morons

  4. Private Hospitals and Nursing Homes Society of Jaipur………way to go!
    Hopefully doctors all over India will realise that UNITY is the only way that the Govt will listen to reason. If the strike continues for more than 7 days then it will be nearly impossible for Govt Hospitals to cope. Instead of doctors fighting , let the common man affected by the strike, question the goverment on its autocratic and dictatorial behaviour

    As a matter of policy hospitals should be situated in residential areas because maximum number of patients originate in these areas.
