In Rajouri hospital attendants thrash docs over poor healthcare

Early Times Report
Rajouri, Nov 28: District hospital at Rajouri on Wednesday turned into battle field as clashes erupted between hospital staff including doctors, attendants of about 16 road mishap victims over allegations of alleged poor healthcare services rendered by doctors at district hospital.
The trouble begins when few attendants kept four patients at main gate of the hospital and started protest against doctors for their lackadaisical attitude in attending the patients and reportedly guiding few to go for treatment in the private clinics.
M.A. Asad, District Development Commis-sioner after holding joint meeting with both the groups ordered a magisterial probe by Sher Singh, Additional DM and assisted by Dr Mehmood Bajar, Medical Superintendent, DH and Mehmood Reyaz, Tehsildar, and asked them to submit report within three days for further action under law.
Meanwhile, on Dr Mehmood's complaint, police have registered case against unidentified trouble creators. He also demanded either strengthening of existing police post at district hospital (DH) or establishment of CRPF post for early control of such unwanted incidents.
The trouble started when Dr Zakir Choudhry was inquiring about the protest and patients at the gate.
Few attendants, who have levelled allegations of misbehave and non-cooperative attitude of Dr Zakir, engaged in verbal dispute with Dr Zakir that later took ugly turn and Dr Zakir was reportedly thrashed.
In reaction Dr Zakir launched a physical attack on some attendants that also led to clashes between hospital staff, doctors and attendants.
"One patient-cum-attendant who tried to expose thrashing by the hospital staff by showing his wounds on the ankle before the media in the presence of doctors was also thrashed by hospital staff," alleged attendants.
The whole incident took place in the presence of police force and Deputy SP. Later to avoid further clashes, police used force against both the parties.
"Police action against hospital staff was condemnable and the entire hospital staff sat on strike demanding action against the erring cops and the attendants," said Dr Mehmood who claimed to have provided best services to the accident victims.
Later MA Asad, DDC along with Yougal Manhas, SSP reached the hospital and held meetings with both the parties and ordered probe into the incident.
Inhabitants of Thanamandi tehsil, to which the accident victims belong, have demanded stern action against those who thrashed the patients and their attendants who were already facing problems in getting proper treatment.
