The Association demanded that the accused, who had attacked an intern doctor, needs to be arrested within three days. It also sought more security guards in departments such as medical emergency, surgery, gynaecology, casualty, ortho emergency, ICU and paediatrics.
Among other suggestions were bouncers and CCTV cameras for the safety of the doctors, a centralised alarm system with proper monitoring as well as setting up a quick response team. The RDA further demanded single entry and exit point in casualty building. The doctors on Monday were back to duty after senior North Delhi Municipal Corporation officials visited them and assured them of a “safer work atmosphere”.
