Docs protest “VIP culture” in government hospitals | India News


The Federation of All India Medical Association (FAIMA) has written to the Prime Minister complaining against “the VIP culture in government hospitals” for which government doctors were called to the homes of politicians to provide testing and treatment. The letter noted that there were no facilities for doctors working on the front line when they tested positive, while “priority is being given to all so-called politicians and workers from their party who have actually held demonstrations and increased the spread of the virus.” . .
“Central government hospitals have VIP counters for testing, allowing all party workers of politicians and ministries to get tested, but doctors do not have separate counters for testing,” the letter said. He added that most politicians still called doctors at their residence, although there was no legal order from the medical superintendent to do so. tnn
