Follow rules or face action for contracting virus, hospital tells docs
PATIALA: Doctors and other staffers of Government Rajindra Hospital will face disciplinary action if they contract coronavirus ‘due to negligence’. The move comes days after 13 staffers of the hospital tested positive for Covid-19. The doctors are demanding withdrawal of the order.
The order reads: “If anyone gets infected due to their own negligence, disciplinary action will be taken against them under Disaster Management Act.”
Medical superintendent Dr Paras Pandove said, “It is just an alert for the safety of doctors and employees.”
