NEW DELHI:
With concern being raised about the security at health facilities in Punjab following a junior resident doctor recently alleging manhandling by attendants of a patient at Government Medical College, Amritsar, state Health Minister Brahm Mohindra has promised increased focus on security.

In an email to Dr Amarinder Singh Malhi, president of the AIIMS Resident Doctors Association, he said, “I am to inform you that the government is fully seized of the matter and I feel equally concerned about this issue.”

The mail further reads, “The safe and secure working environment always ranks top most in the priorities of the Health Department and every possible effort would be made for creating a congenial atmosphere.”

Earlier, Dr Malhi had written to Brahm Mohindra to draw his attention to the falling safety standards in Punjab health facilities.

Dr Malhi said that there have been multiple incidents of violence and other untoward incidents with resident doctors of Government Medical College, Amritsar, which are shocking. Following that, the apathy displayed by the hospital authority is highly condemnable, he told the health minister.
