  1. There is.a Lack of infrastructure ,medicines,staff and poor management . The Pt’s often come at last stages after seeing various pvt drs.And the resident Drs has to work under these ccircumstances facing the wrath of the patients. Senior Drs should also be available to supervise the residents .in the meantime security Shd be improved.

    Yes indeed very sad state of affairs. Just because of the few black sheep, the whole fraternity is labelled to be corrupt and negligent.One and the biggest drawback in medical fraternity is the lack of unity. I won\’t highlight the reasons here in this platform, but there are clear cut reasons for lack of unity.

  3. I happened to meet the MoS for health GOI in a public meeting abroad. She refused to believe that there are any attacks taking place on Doctors in India.
    You see the problem here..apathy from the politicians.

    No point blaming the MCI or IMA for everything.

  4. Shame on IMA

  5. From now on in every night duty wards their should be a duty revolver available so that these goons get handled well….
