Safdarjung doctors on strike

May 9, 2013 - 4:48:02 PM


New Delhi, May 9 - Around 1,000 resident doctors at the Safdarjung Hospital are on a strike, miffed with poor amenities, security and salary, and patients are bearing the brunt of their agitation, a doctor said Thursday.

The strike that began Wednesday has hit the outdoor patients department - services but the emergency and the intensive care unit - services are running smoothly, officials said.

Lambasting the hospital for lacking basic facilities, one of the doctors said: There is no drinking water even for patients leave alone doctors. We are not getting paid properly and no proper security facilities are in place.

There are cases where doctors have been assaulted by aggrieved families of patients, he added.

Another doctor said that the hospital does not have adequate accommodation for the number of doctors and they were compelled to agitate as the authorities are not serious about addressing the various problems of the medicos.

They are just dragging their feet and every time give false promises, said a resident doctor.
