Dear Sir,

One week ago a patient of traffic accident came to my clinic in very serious condition, virtually dead and he was just gasping. I was helpless as my clinic was not having sufficient resource to treat these type of serious patient. I told the relative of the patient to take him to any big setup. But the relative of that patient insisted me to treat the patient and within 10 minute patient died.

Now the attend of that patient started breaking the furniture and other medical equipment of the clinic. I called the police but police did not do anything and even blaming me that I must not have given a proper treatment. Ultimately they went and threaten me that if I will again go to police then they will come again, I just want to know that is there any law to protect the doctors in these type of adverse situation.

Dear Dr.Priyadarshani,

Its very sad to know about the violent mischief created by the relatives of the patients in your clinic,and the hostile attitude of police is even more painful.

According to law,a private practitioner, unlike a government doctor, is at his will either to start the treatment of a patient or not ,subject to bonafied intention.

Unfortunately Indian Law do not protect doctors effectively. But many states have legislated in this regard to protect the doctor from such unethical violence, the doctors and their institutions have been provided protection under Prevention Of Violence And Damage To Property Act-2008. Under the act, The offender shall be punished with Imprisonment for the period of three years and with fine which may extends to rupees fifty thousands(Rs.50,000). Such offence is cognizable and non-bailable. In Addition to it the offender shall be liable to pay for damage caused to the property and double the amount of the damaged medical equipment as determined by the court.

But this law to protect the doctors is currently operative in Delhi,Haryana,Rajasthan,Orissa, Maharashtra,Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and chattisgarh only. And under the process in Bihar and Kerala.

With Regards

It is very unfortunate. Now a days the patients are becoming hostile to doctors. Doctors expect respect from the patent. We would like that our patients should know the consequences of hostility towards caregivers. It may be in mistrust, hyper regulation or to lower the bill which they downt want to pay..
