Residents of all the 6 medical colleges of the state, including RIMS of Ranchi, capital of Jharkhand, are suffering due to the strike by the resident doctors. OPD of many hospitals remained closed for the third consecutive day under the work boycott movement.
Resident doctors of all 6 medical college hospitals of the state including RIMS of Rajdhani Ranchi are on work boycott for the third day today. The problem of patients has increased due to this strike joining with junior doctors. The situation is that the patients who reach the hospital for treatment have to return. Troubled patients told News18 that even while cutting the form, it is not being told that OPD is closed and only running around.
Mohammad came to Rims for treatment from Hazaribagh. Whether Talib, Vijay Vishwakarma or Hemraj Mahato from Giridih, who has come to RIMS with brain problems, the doctor told him to come after the strike, not considering the case of emergency. There are hundreds of patients like him who returned from the hospital without treatment. Vijay Vishwakarma says in angry words to news18 that when the treatment was not to be done, why was the paper cut, while there, the doctors would tell that they are on strike.
Alternate setup insufficientDr. AK Chaudhary, head of the department sitting alone in RIM’s pediatric disease OPD, said that to deal with the situation and patients do not have problems, RIMS management has instructed all senior doctors to sit in OPD and see the patient. But many OPDs were stopped by junior doctors, in many, only the head of the department is sitting. He also believes that 98% of OPD services are disrupted, as only resident and junior doctors are the backbone of RIMS or any medical college hospital.
