Day 3: Doctors continue strike
Jammu, Oct 7: The healthcare services remained affected across the Jammu province as the doctorsí indefinite strike entered third day today with the government and medicos remaining firm on their respective stands.
All routine operations have been postponed in view of the strike by Post-Graduate Resident Doctors, Senior Resident Doctors, House Surgeons and Interns while Out Patient Departments (OPDs) were being run with difficulties by the senior doctors thereby denying medicare to many ailing persons.
Several indoor patients have left the hospitals owing to non-availability of the doctors to attend them in the wards. They were forced to shift to private nursing homes.
The strike was not having any major impact on the Emergency Services in the GMC and Associated Hospitals as senior doctors have been deployed there for the convenience of the ailing people.
The situation in peripherial health institutions where emergency services have not been included in the strike, was also grim with doctors staying away from their respective duties on the strike call given by Doctors Joint Action Committee (DJAC) and Peripherial Doctors Association.
