Delhi HC Recommends Centre To Consider Having A Dedicated Helpline For Grievances Of Nurses In Private Clinics
Delhi High Court has recommended the Central Government to consider having a dedicated helpline for addressing the grievances of the nurses working in private clinics.
The Division Bench Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan, however, refused to entertain the demand seeking inclusion of nurses working in private clinics, who are not on COVID duty, as beneficiaries in the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana. Moreover, the Central Government submitted that a Public Grievance Management System has been created to address the issues faced by healthcare workers. In light of these suggestions, the court disposed of the petition by giving liberty to the Petitioner to file separate cases against those private clinics who fail to comply with the directions issued by the government before an appropriate authority.
