“The current staff is under immense stress and the AIIMS administration should take up the issue seriously and solve solve this issue instead of focusing on other issues,” said a senior resident of AIIMS.

The Resident Doctors’ Association also held a meeting with the Director today in this regard and put forth their demands.

The resident doctor association also said that currently there were only 75 (non-academic) junior residents against 100 posts and most of residents from these 75 will also resign as they will get closer to post graduation entrance exams in two months because of their examinations.

“Also there are only two senior residents at at the surgical emergency and it is impossible for them to be present in each shift for 24 hours so everything in surgical emergency is left with only non academic junior residents,” the doctor said.
