    Senior doctor not behaving properly with the patientís relatives

    I am a junior resident working in a private hospital. The senior doctor under whom I am working is very rude and does not behave properly with the patient or his relatives. As you know it is the duty of the doctor to explain everything about the disease to the patient and his relatives , but he is not following the same and always tries to ignore their questions or reprimands them. I think this is not good on his part. What can I do so he realises his mistake ?

    Hi friend

    I certainly think that your senior doctor should realise his responsibility as a doctor and thus should treat his patients properly and explain to them everything about the disease, answering whatever questions they put to him. I definitely think that he should be loyal to the Hippocratic oath and thus should always follow it. He should not behave rudely with them or their relatives. You should talk to him and don't be afraid to do so.

    Tell him that you just hope that he is not so strict with his patients and also explains to them everything they want to know regarding their problem. In this way they will open up more to him and thus he will be able to have a good image among them. You are just saying this because you respect him and want everyone else to respect him as well. You just hope he will understand you.

    I am sure he will understand your point and try to do as you say. Good luck

    Hi friends,

    I think this problems so many peoples face them
    You can ask to the doctor why are not behaving properly with my relatives.
    You can wait for doctor replay.
    Doctor replay not satisfied you can complain to the higher authorities.
    You can complain to the police department also.

    I think your problem is solved.

    Thanks !!!!
