Panaji, May 17: A complaint was filed against the chairman of a housing cooperative society for having writted to a hospital demanding that nurses and doctors treating Covid patients be prevented from staying in its residential complex. The complaint was filed by the Trained Nurses' Association of India, Goa branch.
The association demanded that the chairman tender his apology for his inhuman act stating that it amounts to defamation of nurses and doctors and they strongly condemned the act.
"Such acts will create wrong impression in public minds about nurses and frontline warriors," president of the Associaton, Kuntal Kerkar, said in the police complaint. "(Doctors and nurses) will have difficulty in carrying out their normal duties in the hospitals in Goa. We being frontline warriors, nobody has a right to treat us in this manner."
The chairman of the residential complex had earlier written to a doctor residing in its complex pointing out that doctors and nurses treating Covid patients in her hospital were residing in the flats without giving any intimation to the society. He stated that it violated the society's bylaws and society members had raised objections regarding the doctors and nurses residing in the building.
