The doctors gathered outside the medical superintendent’s office after an alleged argument between a patient’s relative and a resident doctor at the Covid-19 hospital where a patient had died on Saturday.
A few relatives of the deceased entered the hospital building and soon entered into a heated argument and a tense situation was created, said sources in NCH.
“The relatives were angry and some of them even tried to attack the doctor. We have been demanding security at the Covid-19 hospital but no arrangements have been done till now,” said one of the protesting doctors.
“Following the incident we sat on dharna after which police assured us security. They told the doctors that two cops will be placed at each of the two gates,” said a doctor.
Entry in Covid-19 hospital is prohibited for family and friends of patients to prevent the spread of infection.
