Srinagar: Society of Dental Surgeons, J&K (SDSJK) has strongly condemned the manhandling of a female doctor on night duty at Kangan Hospital by some attendants.
A statement issued by SDS said that the admitted “critically sick” child was advised a proper treatment regimen and was directed for referral to SKIMS.
“The attendants were in no mood to listen the doctor and wanted to be treated in a sub-district hospital which do not have advance paediatric facilities,” the statement said.
President SDSJK, Dr Imtiyaz Banday, criticised the government and the health authorities for turning a deaf ear to the request of establishing a foolproof security system for doctors and bringing an ordinance in this respect.
It asked the authorities to “wake up from deep slumber” before the hospitals become “battlefield zones” for the medical staff.
