Silence of lords is a death sentence to the medical profession:#Doctor’s assaults


 

      Every one when sick, always seeks help of a doctor and invariably help is provided. But strangely, when a doctor needs help, there is no one. Even those people, whose life had been saved, have not returned the favor.  A   strange phenomenon has happened in few years of accusing the doctors for all the ills in society and holding them responsible, without even looking at the root cause.  Everyone has found an easy scapegoat to blame.   Human rights of medical community has been grossly violated by physical assaults. More painful is to see the authorities  who are  supposed to take action have maintained a silence in all these years about this issue.  There has been countless incidences, recent being in Kalyan and Jaipur.

 

If this trend is not checked in an effective manner, it will be difficult to even treat a single patient in coming times. The way media and prominent people have put all doctors in bad light, it seems that a normal and good advice is also not taken in a correct perspective. Even patients do not understand, that this advice is for the  their betterment only.  It is because of prejudiced minds against doctors. Our films and film stars have shown in films that it is okay to assault and bully the doctor to get treatment  in an effort  to impress the gullible masses and make some money. They may be successful in making some money, but by creating mistrust they have put the lives of gullible people on risk. The media should have a more sensible approach and do some basic research before highlighting sensational news against doctors, hospitals and healthcare professionals.

Just imagine, what that gynecologist did to the patient to  earn a slap, for no reason. In this  manner, forget about serious patients and surgeries, doctors will be afraid to do even routine surgeries as well. Here the situation is that even before surgery, doctor was slapped. Imagine, if a complication happens during or after surgery, doctor would have been killed. But strangely our government, human right commissions, police and courts have behaved as if they do not exist to help the doctor, but they expect the doctor to help everyone. This kind of inaction and  silence of  authorities is appalling.

       Obviously good doctors will try to shun the system. Government, human right commissions, police and courts, media have done their contribution to kill a profession, which was of great help to them.  I am sure we are civilized and wisened up enough to recognize these flaws in the society and have some corrective measures before it is too late………….too late to change the perceptions which will settle in the young impressionable minds of the children who till now think of it as their dream career. Otherwise no brilliant child would ever like to enter this profession out of their fear. Nor the parents would like their children to be working for uncivilized society.  The government needs to enact reasonable laws to use  healthcare systems,  to the best interest of people  instead of  unfairly victimize the doctors, just to impress the gullible masses.

It is not a doctor, which was assaulted. Silence of lords is a death sentence to the medical  profession as a whole. One person may realize the folly, but if we wait for realization to come to  whole civilization, it may be too late.

Again I will request the people to introspect, who rue the scarcity of good doctors “ do they deserve to have good doctors?”
