We are living a peaceful life and the credit goes to our soldiers, who perform their duty far away from everyone’s eyes. We hardly acknowledge their hardships they endure for our safety and the same is with doctors. We bother about them only when we are sick and forget their good work afterwards. It is important to understand that when a doctor has even one serious patient admitted under him, his life is always on hold till the patient recovers, even if he is not physically present with the patient in the hospital, he is in constant touch and on high alert. This is the case 24/7 if the doctor works in critical care especially.

 In spite of the pandemic which has shattered us into pieces and overburdened the health system, the violence against doctors and other health workers has become noticeable these days, the incidence in India seems to be increasing. We understand   there are certain responsibilities of doctors and other healthcare workers but at the same time responsibilities also have to be borne by patients and their relatives, political parties and their party workers, hospital authorities, law maintaining machinery, print and electronic media and finally the government to see that health care improves and violence against doctors is strongly dealt with.. A study has shown  that 75 percent of doctors in India have faced violence at some point of time in their life, and most of the time, it is verbal abuse. Emergency, casualty dept. and ICU are the most violent venues.. There is no reason to wait now to stop this violence against doctors and take preventive measures.

Responsibility of the government and political parties

In India, the cause of violence against doctors is multi-layered.  Government needs to increase the GDP with the existing outburst of Indian population towards the betterment of health system discussing with the think tanks. Modern medicine is progressing by leaps and bounds, and  the medical colleges and hospitals in the country have to keep pace with the present needs working hand in hand with Govt.  To keep 140 million people healthy in a country like India is a humongous task. Nutrition, immunization, health education, pollution control, personal hygiene, access to clean water, unadulterated milk, unadulterated food, facilities for exercise, playground, etc. are the basic requirements for good health. The government should concentrate its activities on preventive medicine. The government should punish unlawful behaviour of anybody who harms the doctor and vandalizes the hospital.
