Junior doctors boycott duty upon attack on a colleague at Osmania Hospital
The association demanded that the Telangana State Special Protection Force (TSSPF) be deployed immediately.
HYDERABAD: After a doctor was allegedly attacked at Osmania Hospital, the Osmania Telangana Junior Doctors Association called for a boycott of all "elective duties" except emergency services on Saturday. According to the junior doctors association, a house surgeon was allegedly attacked by grieving attendants of a patient on Thursday.
The doctors association is startled by this incident since the patient's attendants slapped the doctor, and it revealed how the safety of all doctors working at Osmania General Hospital was compromised. In response to the incident, the junior doctors association, which is holding demonstrations at OGH and all affiliated government hospitals, has chosen to boycott all elective duties, other than emergency services.
The association claimed that, in light of such blatant disregard for their safety, this incident was just only one of the many dangers that the "Covid warriors" encountered on a regular basis in government hospitals.
The association demanded that the Telangana State Special Protection Force (TSSPF) be deployed immediately and in accordance with GO. Ms. No. 103 on the OGH premises, with a detailed layout and integration. They also demanded that those responsible for the security breach at the OGH be held accountable.
Additionally, they called for the formation of an urgent and active committee to look into any loopholes in the current system and recommend improvements that could be implemented to ensure the safety of all doctors working in government hospitals.
