Medical Chamber: Don't act like protectors of our profession for the sake of your self-promotion
"Many, who appear in public, have been treated and cured in our healthcare institutions by those same doctors and nurses and we expect them to say how the healthcare system functions and how medical workers treat patients," the LKS points out
The Medical Chamber of Serbia (LKS) has issued an appeal - due to the increasingly frequent public statement of persons who are not healthcare workers and are not a part of the healthcare system, not to instrumentalize doctors and the medical profession for personal goals.
"At this moment, thousands of our colleagues are still in the red zones and are fighting for every patient without asking what their religion, nation or political opinions and preferences are. Many, who appear in public, have been treated and cured in our healthcare institutions by those same doctors and nurses and we expect them to say how the healthcare system functions and how medical workers treat patients," an LKS statement said.
It adds that the Medical Chamber of Serbia, together with relevant institutions, will conduct an analysis regarding each individual case of mortality among doctors, that is, of the sacrifice made by their profession.
"We will also insist that even when we beat this infection, the huge burden that healthcare workers carried is not forgotten. The death of each colleague is a great loss, and the Chamber will strive through its work to remember those who lost their lives working with Covid patients. We sincerely mourn each of our colleagues and sympathize with their families, and precisely because of them and because of all those who are still in hazmat suits, we do not want the sacrifice of Serbian doctors to be instrumentalized," the statement stresses, and adds:
"Once again, we appeal on all citizens, especially those who receive space in the media, to treat with due respect everything that medical workers are enduring now and not to present themselves as protectors of our profession for the purpose of their own promotion."
