Legal protection request by doctors of RIMS

RANCHI: The doctors of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) met the members of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) Jharkhand, on Tuesday to demand the implementation of the Medical Protection Act in the state.

"The Medical Protection Act has been implemented in many Indian states. We had given a proposal to the state government in 2009 and again in December 2011 but have not got any response. Incidents of attack and misbehaviour with doctors are increasing every day and we have no protection," a member of the RIMS teachers' association said.

President of the Junior Doctors Association of RIMS Samual Toppo said it was decided at the meeting that a delegation of doctors would meet state health minister Hemlal Murmu and request him to propose the implementation of the act in the ongoing assembly session. The deadline for acceptance of the proposal - failing which the doctors have threatened to go on strike - has still been kept for April 4. "If no positive action is taken for the protection of doctors, we will go on strike but with the IMA's consent," said Toppo.

"If the government is insensitive, we cannot become insensitive too. Our strike will affect the society." source-articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com
