hi9 and welthi initiate walk protesting violence on doctors
 150 doctors participated in the silent walk

Hyderabad, 1st July 2018: On the occasion of Doctors’ Day, Hi9, supported by Welthi, initiated a silent walk to protest violence against doctors at 6 a.m., in KBR Park, Banjara Hills. The campaign’s tagline, ‘Stop Violence on Doctors’, shifted the general public’s gaze to this issue, bringing to light the rise in such incidents over the last few years.

 

150 doctors, including Chief guest Dr. Kakarla Subbarao (Founder, KIMS Foundation), Dr. Gopichand Mannam (MD Star hospitals), Dr. Ramesh Kancharla (MD Rainbow Hospitals) and Dr. Manjula Anagani (Obstetrician and Laparoscopic surgeon), participated in the protest.

 

Concerns about the safety of their work environment due to outbursts and lack of proper security protocols were discussed. Dr. Mannam elaborated upon how these incidents usually stem from unpredictable worsening of a patient’s condition, something that occurs in more critical cases. This results in doctors being more disinclined to pick up difficult cases, due to their fear of being assaulted, physically or verbally, which, in turn, affects the quality of treatment that is delivered. A few studies indicate that doctors exposed to abuse suffer from depression, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, agoraphobia and anxiety, which can lead to work absenteeism.

 

The overall consensus on how to tackle this issue boiled down to isolating the causative factors of this inhumanity, and to formulate legal provisions and standards to ensure the safety of health workers in India. Additionally, it is up to patients, and their relatives, to communicate with their doctors on dealing issues that may be painful to accept, a humane option with less suffering.
