Right To Health Bill: Doctors in Rajasthan have been demonstrating for several days regarding the Right to Health Bill. But till now the deadlock between the doctors has not ended for the government.
Right to Health Bill: There is a deadlock between private doctors and the government on the issue of Right to Health Bill in Rajasthan. Yesterday i.e. on Thursday, a five-member delegation of doctors returned after meeting the government, but the situation remained the same. Even after several days of demonstrations, the problem of the doctors is not being resolved. Actually, doctors doing private practice are very upset with many clauses of the government. He believes that on the basis of 3-4 studies done by FICCI, the cost of a bed in the general ward is Rs 5,000 while the cost of an ICU is Rs 12,000. This does not include medicine, investigations and anesthesia.
Doctors running private hospitals say that under the Chiranjeevi scheme, the government has allocated Rs 2,100 for a bed in the general ward and Rs 4,700 for an ICU, which is very less compared to the amount fixed for the patients. Obviously, this allocated amount is same in government and private hospitals, but it is not easy for private hospitals to treat patients in this amount. Doctors of private hospitals believe that patients can reach the hospital for treatment of any disease. If they are told that there is no coverage of that disease in the Right to Health, then the patients can even fight with the doctors.
what do doctors say
Founder Member of Federation of Resident Doctors Association of India Dr Manish Jangra It is said that in the Right to Health Bill, the government has completely neglected the interests of the doctors. If the government has to work for the benefit of the patients, then the number of hospitals should be increased. Increase the recruitment of doctors in government hospitals and strengthen the health infrastructure. By bringing such bills, the work of increasing the problems of doctors is being done. This bill should be withdrawn as soon as possible.
Former President of Federation of Resident Doctors Association Dr Rakesh Bagdi It is said that due to the Right to Health Bill, incidents of violence against doctors will increase further. Due to this bill it will be difficult for doctors to work. It has been said in the bill that hospitals will not refuse treatment to the patient in case of emergency, but how will it be determined whether the patient’s condition is emergency or not, because all people may feel that their patient’s condition is not good. and needs immediate treatment. In such a situation, a very bad condition can arise in the hospital. Which can create a big problem for doctors.
Doctors are also angry about emergency service
There is a lot of displeasure among the doctors regarding the provisions given regarding emergency service in the bill. Actually, hospitals up to 50 beds do not have the facility of emergency service. The medical association is adamant about the demand that designated hospitals should be mentioned for emergency services, which are not even mentioned in the government’s Right to Health Bill. The association demands that hospitals with fifty beds should be taken out of the category of providing emergency services.
Mistrust is deepening in the government and doctors’ association?
The Doctors Association has met the CM twice regarding its demands. The association had agreed to withdraw its protest by 10 March at the behest of ACS Finance. During this, on the orders of the CM, the people of his team have also met several times. But there was a lot of resentment among the doctors for not inviting the Association in the meeting of the Select Committee. Which has increased further when their demands were not included.
On March 17, once again, the government talked about including the demands of the doctors’ association, but the association is demanding a direct withdrawal of the bill brought by the government. According to Dr. Amit, the Right to Health Bill is dangerous not only for the doctors but also for the people of the state, which will not benefit anyone.
It is obvious that the President of Rajasthan Medical Association Sunil Chugh has said about the Right to Health Bill that all the doctors of the country are in fear regarding this bill. If this bill is passed, there will be a danger of its implementation in other states as well, which will prove to be harmful for the medical profession. Although in recent times there has been talk of making a separate budget by the government for emergency services, but the associations are questioning the way government works by citing many pending bills and increasing government interference in the medical profession. want to avoid.
