Importance of Relationship Between The Patient, Doctor,
Nurses And Paramedics
There was a meeting of cured patients, their doctors and a few social workers in a
hospital. One important point emerged during the interaction was, that the
relationship between the patient, doctor, nurses and paramedics extends to
patients’ family. This in turn, transmits effective messages from one family to
another family on advice to prevent diseases, necessity of periodic checks, the
dietary habits and the need for life style changes including exercise for good health.
Actually, I believe this good contact between the doctor, nurses, paramedics and
patients is very valuable. I request every one of you to become a teacher for the

JUNE - JULY 2010 VAATSALYA IN NEWS
May 24, 2010 Vaatsalya Has been featured in Italian News Paper
Il Sole 24 Ore's Article "From health to electronics
Hubli: “Work with integrity and succeed.” That was what the former innovation in India is low cost"
President A.P Abdul Kalam had to say to doctors at an interaction
here on Sunday.
Participating in the inauguration of Vatsalya Hospital in Hubli and an
interaction with medical professionals, the former President said that
doctors should inculcate six virtues — generosity, ethics, tolerance,
perseverance, concentration and knowledge — he said.
Emphasising the need for generosity among medical practitioners, Dr.
Kalam asked doctors to treat patients before asking them to complete
formalities. “A doctor saves lives first,” he said. Medicine and
compassion should go hand in hand, he added. He asked nurses to
greet patients with a smile, as it plays a major role in curing ailments.
Referring to the lack of interest among doctors to take up teaching, he
said that teachers should be given a good salary and pleasant work
atmosphere. “One should not be forced into the profession. Those
taking up teaching should have a passion for it,” he added.
