Strike of JJ hospital resident doctors continues even on the 3rd day. It is widely reported in media about the strike/ mass bunk of resident doctors. Resident doctors are demanding the resignation of Dean, Dr. TP Lahane and Ophthalmology department HOD, Dr. Ragini Parekh. This is in view of the mental torture and no teaching by teachers to the resident doctors.
Now resident doctors of Ophthalmology department has come out with this video to bring out their harassment incidences to public. Doctors are claiming that they are not allowed to take leaves, asked to fill up files only, a doctor with medical problem is not allowed to work even though he is medically fit, a teacher almost hit a female residents doctor with her chappal – she was called pervert in front of her parents and in-laws, threatened to cancel their registration, abuses like “Bhadva” being used, blame of complications in the surgery due to mistakes of senior teachers are dumped on the residents and are asked to write apology letters for the same – which they sign in pressure, when doctors ask for doing surgeries they are asked to do it on their parents only, there are no teaching activities or journal clubs which are part of MCI curriculum, residents are not allowed to do even minor procedures and are being threatened that they will be failed and their registration will be cancelled.
In view of DesiMedicos team, this is pathetic level at which teachers of ophthalmology dept and dean of JJ hospital has gone and such kind of people should not be in higher posts of any medical college. Resident doctors are future specialist doctors, if they are not taught anything how will they treat the patients in future? Who is responsible for any wrong with happening to patients? The demand for resident doctors should be met and both HOD and Dean should be transferred to some non- teaching hospital.
