Doctors Forum Jammu has decided to stop providing medical services in all the private hospitals, diagnostics centers and labs on June 5, 2018, following the arrest of noted ENT Specialist, Dr Satish Mehta and his team after tragic accidental death of one Parveen Kour.
Briefing media persons here on Monday, Dr Dushyant Choudhary termed the death of Parveen Kour as unfortunate and showed sympathy to deceased family.
“We remain always sympathetic to our patients whom we are treating. Sometimes some unforeseen bad incidents do happen where inspite of all our positive efforts morbidity and mortality occurs,” Choudhary said.
Doctors Forum said that the action taken by police persons was deplorable and pathetic. Inspite of Supreme Court ruling by Justice R.C Lahoti, Justice G.B Mathur and B.K Balakrishanana the aforesaid doctor and his team were arrested and kept in lock up for more than 72 hours.
“This type of behaviour of concerned authorities is highly condemnable. If such situations are in store for doctors how treatment of the patients is possible. These accidents will happen in future also in medical practice and if the concerned doctors will meet this type of pathetic behaviour from the patients and the authorities then who will join this profession,” Choudhary said. “To resent such unwarranted attitude of treatment by the authorities, the Forum has decided to stop providing medical services in all the private hospitals, diagnostics centers and labs on June 5, 2018”.
“We will also lodge a protest by organizing a peaceful march on June 5 at 7:30 PM from Bahu Plaza to Green Belt Park. We are compelled to undertake such protests as our professionals have been scolded by politicians, police and other authorities on many occasions. This is a fervent request and appeal to the authorities to shun such type of pathetic treatment with the doctors and act strictly under the laws enshrined in the Constitution of India,” Choudhary mentioned.
