Immediately following the announcement, TOI reports that the State health department issued a notice stating the doctors and other employees of government hospitals have to wear decent clothes.

Following the District Magistrate’s order, the Chief Medical Officer issued another order saying, “Anyone coming to work without wearing formal dress will be marked absent and a day’s salary will be deducted.”

Trickling down, similar notices are now being taken out by the district hospital across the state. “We had received three orders on Thursday regarding maintaining cleanliness in the surroundings, ensuring punctuality and about decent dressing. We are implementing them all,” officiating chief medical superintendent (CMS) Vandana Sharma, district hospital Noida told TOI.

    Ridiculous orders , everybody has right to decide about his or her dress

  2. I AM QUITE INDIFFERENT TO THIS BECAUSE JEANS AND T-SHOIRTS CAN BE WORN CONTINUOUSLY FOR TWO OR THREE DAYS (PARTICULARLY PENTS) WHEN NO INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS MADE IN THE LIVING CONDITIONS OF RESIDENT DOCTORS IN HOSTELS AT LEAST 3 MORE THAN 3 DOCTORS ARE CRAMPED UP IN ONE SMALL ROOM AND THEY HAVE TO SPEND MOST OF THEIR TIME IN THE WARDS EVEN SLEEPING IN WARDS, JEANS PENT ARE MORE PRACTICAL THAN FORMAL WEARS. BUT T-SHIRTS SHOULD BE LIGHT COLOURED OR WHITE AND DEFINITELY NOT FLUORESCENT COLOUR.OF COURSE WHIT APPRON SHOULD BE COMPULSORY DURING DUTY HOURS.

  3. Drs are human beings. We have to appreciate their medical decision making capacity then how they look or what they wear clothes. Of course it has to be a decent presentation. But On weekend the attire can be jeans . Relaxed mood and atmosphere eventually helps healing and healers

  4. The decision 1s a weicome step and was overdue .this will help the doctors to gain due respect at the first interaction with patients.combined this with humbleness and more tolerant behaviour on the part of especially young doctors dealing the emergency willcertainly avoid many clashes between the erratic attendants and their treating medicos.
