Setting aside the bail granted to two persons, who had allegedly attacked a doctor, the Kerala High Court bench recently expressed concern about the continued attacks on the healthcare professionals.
The HC bench of Justice Bechu Kurian Thomas also pointed out the casual approach taken by the courts in this regard and noted, “The trembling hands of a surgeon and the shivering mind of a physician do not augur well for the patients at large. Doctors continue to face threats, when a mishap occurs to a patient. Even for the slightest provocation, health personnel are attacked. Despite legislation prevailing in the State of Kerala and the repeated court orders to treat attacks on health personnel as a serious crime, violence against them recur.”
