This morning I read a news . 5 patients died in Rajshahi Medical College as doctors declined to serve due to some unpleasant incidents between doctors and patients ( doctors claimed , some patient’s relative beat them)
Hmm, I don’t want to discuss about what happened actually. Whatever it was , my key concern is doctors retreated themselves from providing service. It can be mentioned that , only a few weeks ago , almost similar scenario was created during the clash between 4th class employees and doctors. And as a consequence doctors declined to serve.
I wonder in which country we live ? Is there any law at all ? or is there anything called humanity ? Do we have proper respect to existing laws ?
Seems to me , the answer is a big NO.
Obviously we protest any kind of misbehavior against doctors and expect authority should take proper legal steps against them. But why retreating themselves from serving ? How could they let a patient die ? It’s not a question of being a doctor , it’s question of being a human. And if you read the whole news with care , you would find it normal to lose your thoughts , take some offensive stances , when your wife is dying , and no doctor is showed up for hours. I am not justifying his misbehaviors , but request you to understand how a man should feel.
Think that , 5 innocent people died only for some arrogant doctors. Everything will be normal in days , everybody will lead their normal life except those bunch of ill fated family who lost their nears and dears for some “snob” , “so-called-human” doctors.
Can those doctors do the same thing if that patient were in a private clinic ? I guess NO.
I had a very terrible experiment in Govt. Hospital, Where I had to go once to show my pathological test reports to one of the doctors. It was 11:00 in the morning , and I couldn’t find that doctor. Someone said “He’s in doctors common room ( or canteen) , and taking some cookie and tea” . I waited for almost 1 hour , and he didn’t show up. When I decide to leave , he appeared , after almost 1:15 minutes. There were almost 15-20 patients waiting for him for hours, most of them are seriously sick. Why they waited ?They waited because they had no option to go anywhere else , where they could be treated well in exchange of cash. Though not 100% doctors are like this , there are surely some very good exception, but you would definitely agree with me that , most of the doctors exactly match with above scenario.
These incidents somehow kill me very much. I know we can’t pay doctors well , as they should be , after studying the hardest syllabus among all U G subjects. But they should remember this , being a doctor is something very much special and noble. if you think you can’t continue to serve in such a low money , then you should give it up. But you haven’t no right kill hopes of thousand innocent lives.
I strictly think , retreating themselves from serving , is somewhat a crime and they should face the legal action for their deeds as they all are killer of 5 innocent lives.
