Basic Patient Right


I don’t know how far it’s true. Of course, both sides are trying to protect themselves. The lesson learnt is that basic human right is a fundamental issue that has to be guarded all the time otherwise it will be used as a platform for people who want to project themselves as champion of the human right. I feel that this activist is over zealously exagerating her cause. On the other hand, I believe that people who have been entrusted to safeguard the wellbeing of mentally ill patients i.e.the psychiatrists have to be on their toes all the time. We shouldn’t forget our duty and responsibility to patients in particular and humanities in general. Patients have to be treated with dignity and respect. Patients have to be seen as human being when getting treatment and the doctor must ensure that he/she abides to good medical practice and the standards of competence, care, and conduct expected in all aspects of his/her professional work.
