Junior docs protest mall on RIMS campus


Ranchi, June 16: A cloud of uncertainty looms large over the shopping complex proposed to be constructed at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS).


The Junior Doctors’ Association (JDA) lodged a protest against its construction before RIMS director N.N. Agarwal.


The director has forwarded the letter to state health minister Bhanu Pratap Sahi.


JDA president Jitendra Singh Munda said the protest was lodged anticipating law and order problems on the RIMS campus after the shopping complex was constructed.


“We anticipated security problems on the RIMS campus after the construction of the shopping complex. We anticipated problems to nurses, students and lady doctors who perform their duties at night. We also anticipated the negative impact on the academic atmosphere of RIMS due to presence of anti-social elements and eve-teasers in the shopping complex,” Munda added.


Agarwal refused to comment on the issue, as he believed he was not associated with the construction of the shopping complex. “Only the health minister can respond on the matter. I am not concerned with it,” he said.


The health minister had no information about the proposal till today evening. He, however, gave a clear indication about his reaction when he would get a copy of the receipt letter. “The JDA has no right to interfere in administrative matters. Will the JDA pay the RIMS staff? How can an autonomous body run without generating its own source of income,” Sahi said.


The health minister happens to be the chairperson of the RIMS governing body.


The two-storeyed shopping complex would be constructed beside the RIMS playground, beside NH-33, that lies vacant.


The shopping complex would house 265 shops and provide parking facilities. The RIMS management has planned to make it attractive by using lights. Landscaping, gardening and installation of fountains are also on the cards.


Advertisements have already been published in local newspapers and over 200 applications have been received. Last date for submitting applications ended yesterday. Forms were priced at Rs 5,000.

Contract docs back to work- Govt nod with rider to medicos’ demand

Ranchi, June 16, 2008: Contractual doctors today called off their agitation after health minister Bhanu Pratap Sahi laid down a few conditions for regularising their service even as the medicos promised not to go on strike again.


The decision to call off the agitation came after the doctors met Sahi and discussed their problems in an hour-long meeting.


“We decided to call off our agitation because most of our demands have been fulfilled,” said Bimlesh Singh, the president of Jharkhand Contractual Doctors’ Association (JCDA).


Regarding regularisation of services — the primary demand of the doctors — the minister said the government would explore the possibility of selecting contract doctors only through interviews if the number of applicants for vacancies were less than three times the vacancies.


The government would also consider Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC) rules before permitting such selection.


Contract doctors who fail to get through the public service commission interview can continue to work as per their contract until 60 — the age to superannuate from government jobs, Singh said. The doctors would get benefits such as provident fund and gratuity while women doctors would get maternity leave according to labour laws.


The doctors had wanted the government to appoint them on a regular basis by conducting interviews without having to go through the JPSC exams.


“We have submitted the Himachal Pradesh model to the state government, where all contract doctors were absorbed without any age bar. The minister promised us he would consider the Himachal model,” he added.


Sahi said: “We have agreed to allow doctors who have crossed the maximum age limit fixed by JPSC to work till the age of retirement. In the next round of appointments through JPSC, we will see if appointments through viva-voce alone can be done.”


Earlier, the state government announced 1,070 vacancies for doctors would be filled through JPSC. Now, if the number of applicants was less than 3,021, the state government would ask the JPSC if the vacancies could be filled through interviews alone, instead of the written test-cum-interview.


The health minister told The Telegraph, “The crisis began because contract doctors wanted to stop the JPSC examination for appointing 1,070 doctors.”


The agreement between JCDA and the state government also stipulated the re-employment of contract doctors who were dismissed for taking part in the strike.


The doctors’ dismissal would be revoked with effect from the midnight of May 31 — the government’s deadline for them to join work.


Sahi also agreed to pay salaries to the doctors for the period they were on strike. However, the payment would depend on service rules, which means adjustment of casual leave against the strike period — May 25 to June 16.


The contract doctors, on their part, had to sign an undertaking that they would not go on strike again.

UGC, MCI asked to reply on unabated ragging cases

The Supreme Court today sought replies from the University Grants Commission, the Medical Council of India and the All India Council for Technical Education on continuing ragging incidents in some educational institutions under their control despite a ban following the J.M. Lyngdoh committee recommendation.


They were given time till December 10 to submit their responses by a Bench of justices Arijit Pasayat and Lokeshwar Singh Panta after status reports from various educational institutions across the country was placed before it by amicus curiea Gopal Subramaniam.


The court rejected the contention of the National Students Union of India (NSUI), the student wing of the Congress, for making it a party in the case as it alleged that the committee headed by former Chief Election Commissioner J.M. Lyngdoh before making recommendation had not taken its views into consideration.


This was opposed by Subramaniam, who said a statement to this effect by the NSUI was “false” as the panel had heard the student wing of the Congress in detail before laying down the guidelines for prohibiting ragging.


The judges admonished the NSUI counsel for making such a statement at this late stage when the Lyngdoh committee recommendations had even been ordered to be implemented.


“In an educational institution you are not admitted as members of a political party but sent to pursue your studies. Are you for studies or doing politics on the campus. What should be your priority,” the court asked the NSUI lawyer.


The Bench said no parents send their children to a college to participate in students’ politics or harassing fellow students as they spend their hard earned money for their education and betterment of their career and the students as well as the authorities had to keep this in mind while enforcing the order against ragging.


Since the court from the status reports and media reports found that ragging was still continuing in several institutions and many students had fallen victim to it and some of them even subjected to sever physical and mental torture, it thought it appropriate to seek replies from the UGC, the MCI and the AICTE, the statutory monitoring bodies for different types of educational institutions.

Shade relief for kin in RIMS

Ranchi, June 1: Family members and friends of victims of unnatural death, who visit RIMS, would no longer have to wait under the scorching sun. For, a spacious shade is being constructed for them outside the post-mortem room.


The work, which began last week, is likely to be completed within a fortnight. People would be able to sit on benches affixed to the ground in a U-shape under the 60x30ft shade.


RIMS director N.N. Aggarwal said the place would be known as prayer hall, where people can pray while waiting to receive bodies of their relatives and friends after post-mortem.


“The place would provide a proper venue to the kith and kin of the deceased to come together and share moments of grief in a peaceful atmosphere,” Aggarwal said.


Sources said that at present, people visiting RIMS for post-mortem of the deceased have to keep waiting for hours on the road or under trees. Waiting in such a situation used to be difficult during rains, summer afternoons and winter evenings. The prayer hall would help minimise their problem,” said an official of the post-mortem department, requesting anonymity.


The post-mortem room at RIMS is located at the rear of the forensic medicine department. Police officers from across the district come to RIMS with dead bodies for post-mortem required in medico legal cases. Other than police officials, common people also go there to receive bodies and meet the family members of deceased persons.


RIMS is an autonomous body established under an act of Jharkhand Assembly. Established in 1960 and originally called Rajendra Medical College and Hospital after Rajendra Prasad, the first President of India. The medical college and hospital began operations in February 1965. The institute provides free medical service and medicines to patients. At present, it is upgrading its different departments. Facilities are being provided under its development programme.

129 striking doctors sacked

Ranchi, June 4: Sending out a signal that it meant business, the state government acted on its ultimatum and began sacking striking contractual doctors who had not reported for duty today.


Till reports last came in, the health ministry had sacked 129 contractual doctors from Ranchi district alone.


Health minister Bhanu Pratap Sahi, who stayed back at his office till late evening accompanied by senior officials, said: “The civil surgeon was issuing dismissal letters. Lists of other districts would follow.” On Monday, the state government had issued an ultimatum to over 600 striking contractual doctors asking them to join work by Wednesday or face dismissal. Till yesterday, various associations representing the doctors had said they would not heed the government’s threat.


But by this evening, things looked different. “By 9pm, 250 contract doctors had joined work according to reports sent by civil surgeons across the state,” said Sahi.


“Within an hour, the number of those returning to work swelled from 167 to 250.”


Sahi also ordered all the civil surgeons to terminate job of those doctors who did not report by Wednesday midnight.


The health minister said the final number of sacked doctors would go up as health officials had been instructed to stay back at their office in Nepal House till midnight to collect reports being sent by the civil surgeons.


But the agitating contractual doctors claimed they were firm about a “ fight to the finish” despite the state government's claim that one third of them had joined duty.


Health secretary S.P. Sinha said technically the government had to merely terminate the contract signed by these doctors to dismiss them.


Around 600 contract doctors have been on mass leave since the midnight May 25 to press for regularisation of their services.


In view of the government’s latest move, the IMA has convened a general body meeting of all contractual doctors in Ranchi on June 6 at its headquarters. “On June 6, we shall decide the future course of action,” said IMA state secretary R.C. Jha.


He, however, dismissed the state government’s claims as “an effort to spread confusion among agitating doctors” to foil their agitation.


Union minister of state for food processing industries Subodh Kant Sahay came out in support of the striking doctors and blamed a “corrupt state government” for its callous attitude towards poor patients in rural areas who, he said, were suffering for want of proper medical facilities.

Tips on modern sinus surgery

Ranchi: The Bihar and Jharkhand chapter of Otolaryngologists of India today presented a live surgical operative demonstration of endoscopic sinus surgery.



The programme was organised for the first time for the benefit of doctors from Jharkhand and Bihar at the telemedicine centre of RIMS.



The resource person and organising secretary of the programme, R.K. Pandey, said that four operators carried out eight operations throughout the day under the programme organised to make doctors aware of the latest development in the field of surgery.



“The participating doctors — 80 in total — were made aware of the process of surgery which can be used to solve sinus problems without carrying out big operation. They were acquainted with different types of equipment and methods of using it,” Pandey added.



Rakesh Choudhary, a participant from Patna, supported the show saying the programme helped him understand the process under which a sinus patient could go home within two hours of his operation without facing any cosmetic problem. “Earlier, a patient had to recuperate seven days after the sinus operation. But, the endoscopic surgery about which we were made aware today, a patient can be discharged immediately. Apart from this, the operation does not make any change out the outer parts of a patient’s face,” Choudhary added.



The procedure, Choudhary said, could be performed under general or local anaesthesia on an outdoor patient, and they usually experience minimal discomfort. The complication rate for this procedure is lower than that for conventional sinus surgery, he added. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery, a participant said, is a minimally invasive technique used to restore sinus ventilation and normal function. “The most suitable candidates for this procedure have recurrent acute or chronic infective sinusitis and an improvement in symptoms of up to 90 per cent may be expected following the procedure,” the doctor added.



Fibre optic telescopes, another doctor said, are used for diagnosis and during the procedure computed tomography is used to assess the anatomy and identify diseased areas.
