GMC Registrars resign en masse
Protest ‘rude behavior by Consultants’
Srinagar, Sep 12: The critical care services in Srinagar hospitals were badly affected on Wednesday after a dozen Registrars tendered their resignation en masse in protest against “rude behavior” with their colleagues by a senior faculty member.
A group of doctors from the Department of Anesthesia told Greater Kashmir that they were forced to resign by the “faulty working atmosphere created by the consultants due to their arrogant behavior” at the associated hospitals of Government Medical College Srinagar.
“Some of the faculty members take our dedication and sincerity towards work as a hurdle in way of their self-interests, especially the private practice,” the resignation letter, a copy of which is with this newspaper, reads.
Recently a Registrar in the Anesthesia Department Dr Masood Rashid was allegedly reprimanded after he called a consultant for help in handling a high risk patient, a group of Registrars said. They alleged that the consultant had skipped her duties and was busy at her private clinic.
“When the Registrar called the consultant for help, she reacted with derogatory comments and told him to handle the case himself,” the Registrars said. “Later when the matter was brought to the notice of the HoD, he reprimanded the registrar instead of the consultant,” they alleged.
According to the Registers another senior doctor threatened them of dire consequence if they continue to “irritate” senior faculty members by calling them for help.
The Registrars alleged that the consultants often skip their routine duties which badly affects the healthcare delivery at the hospitals.
Meanwhile, in absence of Registrars in the Anesthesia and Critical-Care, the PG students are reportedly handling the patients.
