An Orthopedic doctor of Dhule Civil hospital in Maharashtra, was thrashed by his patient’s relatives on Tuesday after a quarrel over alleged medical negligence. Doctors have now demanded strict security in hospital premises with rising incidents of doctor-patient friction.

According to hospital sources, a patient with head injury was admitted who was further referred to tertiary level hospital for the need of a neurosurgeon. “The patient’s relatives got angry when referral was made and started beating up the orthopedic doctor with rods and cots,” a resident doctor told The Indian Express.

    And why do Journalists never followup with what's happening with the doctor now, what about the people who have been arrested and what about the super-slow Indian Proceedings in courts? We want to not know just that the doctor was beaten..we want to know how is justice being served to him? Please update an article regarding the same...

      This is an emergency situation and the doctor has the right to make any call. neurosurgeon referral seems appropriate. The readers are confused and mixing up the corruption in non emergent/ elective situations with this. while medical corruption is a valid issue,this is not the way to protest.

        All india doctors strike is the only option lt;br/gt;Doctor is not responsible every thing in hospital.if he wants to treat according the books he read,no government hospital or medical college can provide facilities.lt;br/gt;It is responsibility of government to provide them.by working in that type of atmosphere doctors are becoming scapegoat.public should know that point lt;br/gt;So it is the responsibility of doctors organizations to enlighten the public and government .unless some action taken this type things recur.lt;br/gt;These are the days that-everybody thinking that medical knowledge can be equally gained by simply going through Internet and medical shop..why unnecessarily paying to doctors.then automatically doctor will be looked greedy

            a day should come when all the doctors accross the country should go on an indefinite strike untill all those rascals who have beaten up the doctors be arrested and punished appropriately. doctors can survive without practicing medicine. doctors can take care of their own health and do side business to earn a livelihood. rest of the citizens who are ready to beat up the doctors can treat themselves.
