BPKIHS docs on strike
Oct 10, 2017-
Health services at BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences (BPKIHS) have been affected as junior resident doctors have halted their works, protesting the attack on medical staff on Sunday night.
The protesting doctors began their strike on Monday demanding legal action against the attackers.
According to Dr Roshan Parajuli, the relatives of Dambar Bahadur Baraili, who was wheeled in to the critical care unit after suffering a heart attack, had stormed the unit at around 10:30 pm and manhandled Dr Pradeep Mandal, Dr Ajit Jha and some staff nurses, accusing the medical staff of not taking proper care of their patient.
Some medical instruments, windows and a door of the CCU were also broken in the incident, Dr Parajuli added.
The doctors and nurses working in the CCU had immediately halted their works after the attack.
Baraili, 72, died a few hours after the incident. His relatives initially refused to receive his body, claiming that his death was caused due to medical negligence.
But they finally agreed take the body home after the BPKIHS management
exempted all treatment expenses and offered to provide free of cost treatment to Baraili’s family members in the future.
