    What are the protection laws for nurses in hospitals?

    Nurses in hospitals whether they are with a government hospital or with private one, they have to bear the humiliation of patience in many cases. Are there any norms against such kind of behaviour which can protect nurses?

    Hello Aspirant,

    See the rules of conduct applies to all citizen of the country.When you are working in a govt.or pvt.hospital as a nurse & if any patience or his/her attendant behaves with you ilegally,you have right to report the matter to the head of your hospital or hospital superintendent to take action against the concerned one.If no action is taken,you can directly lodge an FIR in the nearby police station.

    An enquiry will be made & action will be taken against the charged persons provided you have witness & evidence in your favour.

    There are no special rules of protection for nurse,but it is covered under general rules of protection which are applicable to all the people of the country.

    So need not fear.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Dear Friend,
    As far as i know, i donít think that there is any specific protection laws for nurses in case mentioned by you. There are other acts and enactments which take care of areas like welfare, safety etc. But nothing against the humiliation they face from certain patients.
    But i would say that the profession of nurses is a divine one. They care for the sick, they give life to the dying, they treat every patient no matter he/she belongs to a upper class or middle class, or if he/she is a male or female. I do agree that certain patients are not very kind while dealing with nurses. They might be having their own reasons or problems to behave in such a manner and we cannot completely blame them for that.
    But on the other hand has you have rightly pointed out, nurses today face a lot of humiliations from the patients and the govt. Should also think of bringing in some regulations to protect them from such humiliations. But i would also add that this is a very delicate matter has you cannot act in a harsh manner with the patients and hence the matter has to be thought out first and then dealt with.
    Regards
    Sydney.
