Taking note of increasing incidents of scuffle at hospitals in Haryana, the State Government has decided to deploy 1652 home guards on outsourcing basis for ensuring the security of the medical practitioners and for other security arrangements in all primary health centers, community health centers, and district hospitals in the State.
Talking to reporters, the Health Minister Anil Vij said that there will be no compromise on security of doctors working in various hospitals of the State.
Other measures like installation of additional CCTV cameras have been ordered in the government hospitals.
The Health Minister said it was a matter of concern that increasing incidents of misbehaviour or attack on doctors are taking place due to various reasons even though medical profession is considered a noble one.
"Earlier, private security personnel were deployed at Government hospitals through outsourcing for the security of the doctors. Taking serious note of increasing such incidents, we have decided to replace private security guards with home guards in the State,” he said.
