Category: State

Jammu,March 17 :

Principal Secretary to Government, Health and Medical Education Department J&K, Dr. Pawan Kotwal today said that government will take initiatives to ensure the security of doctors while delivering their professional duties.

Kotwal said this while inaugurating a Panel discussion on ‘Violence against healthcare professionals in J&K’ which was jointly organized by Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA) and Academy of Hospital Administration (AHA) regional chapter Jammu.

Labour Commissioner and Secretary to Government, Information Department, Dr. Abdul Rashid, Secretary IIPA Jammu, Er. JBS Johar, Former Health Secretary and Patron AHA Jammu, Dr. VP Gupta, Registrar Academics GMC Jammu/Executive Director, AHA Jammu, Dr. Yashpal Sharma shared the podium. Besides, members from Directorate of Health services GMC, Jammu ASCOMS, Medical Professionals, Judiciary, Police, Media, and Bureaucracy were present on the occasion.

In his address, Kotwal said that generally, violence against health professionals and health property happens when a person is emotionally high particularly in out-patient departments where patient flow is high and doctors are highly overburdened.

“There is a huge disparity between what is required and what is available which leads to unfortunate incidents of conflicts between medical professionals and people,” he said.

Pertinently, Kotwal said that government is working tirelessly to streamline the apparatus of Medicare facility at all levels in the state and to mitigate the patient flow, besides he stressed for strengthening the peripheries health system and paramedical staff to avoid frequent referrals.

So far the security of doctors is concerned; he said, there should be a specific law to secure the doctors and hospital property and specific act is needed to fill the security lapse, besides there should be a legal deterrence which can stop people from committing such acts.

“Such acts are ultimately hampering the treatment of a patient, and they may get adversely affected,” he said.

Besides, he asked the panelists’ present on the occasion to submit recommendations to the government to help in reduction of violence against the medical professionals in the state.

He further called for an intensive input training for Senior Residents (SRs) and Junior Residents (JRs) to develop receptive and calm approach among them while performing their duties. He added that there is a need to revamp the syllabus to train these SRs and JRs to deal positively in adverse circumstances.  

Moreover, he reiterated that government is committed to ensure the safe and hassle-free environment for both medical professionals and medical treatment for patients.

Violence against women on increase

Category: Editorial

RAJNI SHARMA 

Violence against women folk throughout the world is on an increase. News of atrocities on women folk are heard on daily basis and nothing has been done to prevent such crime against women. The increase in the atrocities of women is evident from the fact that during the last year i.e. 2017, the crime against women in comparison to last year has shown three- fold increase, which shows that crime against women is increasing day by day. As per a report in 2016 a total of 177 cases were registered in the Human Rights Commission for women, J&K, where as in 2017 this number jumped to 450, which shows an alarming in the crime against women. In 2017, in State women commission, state police and with other law enforcing agencies about three thousand such cases are registered. As per the report in the last three years as many as 21 ladies have committed suicide due to the alleged domestic violence. The human rights commission for women has itself admitted that there has been an increase in the crime against women in the state. The commission has admitted that at an average as many as 8 cases of crime against women are registered daily, which proves the tall claims of state govt. that it has taken  elaborate steps to control the crime against women. The maximum cases are of domestic violence including demand of more dowry,   Every time after such an incident, the people took to streets and the authorities assures of strict action against these cases but the fact is that a number of such cases are forgotten with the lapse of times. That is the reason that crime against women is on an increase in the state.
