38 medical students punished for making reels at district hospital in Gadag

Gadag, Feb 10 (IANS): A day after Karnataka Health Minister Dinesh Gundu Rao terminated a doctor from service for doing pre-wedding photo-shoot inside an operation theatre at the government hospital in Chitradurga district, the Gadag Institute of Medical Sciences (GIMS) on Saturday punished 38 medical students by extending their housemanship posting by 10 days for making reels in the institute premises.

The students had shot a number of reels, including dancing on popular Hindi, Kannada and Telugu film songs, which had gone viral on social media. The public had objected to the act of using the hospital premises, lab and operation theatre for filming entertainment videos.

The students shot videos during evening and night in the hospital premises, which were unnoticed by the authorities. After the students posted the videos on their social media platforms, they went viral, drawing the notice of the authorities.

GIMS Director Basavaraja Bommanahalli said he came know about the reels on Saturday.

“I had summoned all the students of which 38 had shot the videos. It was a big crime on their part to use the hospital premises for shooting reels,” Bommanahalli said.

“They should have shot the reels in their private spaces. They should not have caused inconvenience to the patients. The students are claiming that they had shot them for the pre-graduation ceremony. But we did not give permission for any such act. Action has been initiated against them,” he added.

    I must agree with Monti Doctor. Most of students pay money of any amount to get a seat in medical college. At the end they end where it shouldn't be. Many fail to diagnose ,operation or give medical treatment. Patients die. Such people who don't have love for human lives should seek something else. Making film is ok but not with permission please, and out of Operation Theatrical arrange as a OP room and film it elsewhere. Patients shouldn't be neglected. By the way I remembered other day a doctor called Modi was doing eye operations all over India of poor people without fees. Do we have any of such Medicos now in India?

    Nowadays, for students who are completing +2 or PUC or 12th grade, the choice is clear. You can chose MBBS and pursue your career as a doctor or you can chose to be a human being!

    Jossie; once upon a time our GP (MBBS degree from municipal medical college, JJ Hospital), practicing in slum area of Mumbai used to do all round jobs including putting sutures (on my head) and even pulling loose teeth; he could get a very good hint of the patient's problem just by a clinical examination and auscultation and talking to the patient lovingly (tender loving care); he used to take his fees once a month and sometimes even waive half of it if it was hard to pay; I can go on and on....on about his STERLING HUMANE QUALITIES, which would put modern docs to shame😔😔🙏🙏
