MFA seeks security for medicos
Srinagar, Sep 17: Strongly condemning the recent assault on a medico in SMHS hospital, the Medical Faculty Association (MFA) of Government Medical College Srinagar Monday urged the state government to provide security in hospitals on the pattern of Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).
In a statement the MFA General Secretary Dr Sajad Qazi said: “We have pleaded before the Government several times for effective security in the hospitals so that doctors and para-medical staff can perform their duties without any fear. Government should recruit security on long-term basis and they should have defined powers so that their coordination with the police becomes easy.”
He demanded that strict laws should be made and anybody who attacks a doctor or destroys hospital property be booked under relevant laws.
Dr Qazi said that details of all the patients must be recorded by the concerned officials when they approach OPDs.
