Resident doctors across the city have come up with a unique way to show their angst against rising violence against them in hospitals by relatives of patients. About 150 Harley Davidson bikers will drive across the city hospitals, Sunday, along with doctors to raise awareness on doctor’s rights. A free diabetes testing camp will also be organised en-route for people.

The ride, held jointly by the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) and Harley Davidson Club of Mumbai and Pune, will start from JJ hospital at 10am and continue through Nair, KEM and Sion hospital throughout the day.

“The reason for this awareness ride is that resident doctors are working extended hours and have to usually handle difficult situations in the hospital. Patients can also sometimes die and emotions run hard in family. In these situations, doctors have faced a lot of violence at the hands of the relatives or authorities,” said Dr Sagar Mundada, president of MARD.

The bike ride will aim to attract attention of the medical education ministry for better security at public hospitals.
