Collector's nail infection controversy; IAS association urges action against doctors

j

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: IAS Association has requested Chief Secretary Dr V Venu to take action against the doctors who protested the summoning of the doctor from the General Hospital to Thiruvananthapuram District Collector Jeromick Georges' home to examine his nail infection.

According to rules passed by Parliament, there is a provision for doctors to visit the homes of civil servants and their family members. The medical officer can decide when to go and reimbursement is available even if treatment is provided at home. This provision also applies to civil servants in central service, as per Sections 3 and 8 of the Civil Service Rules. The association also pointed out that publicizing the collector's illness is against medical ethics.

Chief Secretary told Kerala Kaumudi that a decision will be made after examining the Health Secretary's report on the incident. The Health Secretary will be in the office on Monday. Meanwhile, KGMOA stated that the Health Secretary has spoken to the Collector and assured that such incidents will not happen again.

Collector called the doctor to his house last Saturday while the doctor was examining patients in a busy outpatient surgery. The doctor had to wait for an hour at the Collector's house. The doctors protested the incident. After cleaning the pus from the Collector's nail, the doctor returned around 1 pm.
