Post Graduate Medical Institute & Ameer Uddin Medical College Principal Prof. Dr. Sardar Muhammad Al-freed Zafar has said that all patients should be provided equal medical facilities for treatment above any personal ambition. Practicing doctors truly deserve to be called ‘maseehas’ because they are always available to serve the suffering humanity by putting their lives at threat and care about patients more than their own family. He expressed these views while addressing the participants of the awareness walk organized on the occasion of “World Patient Safety Day” at Lahore General Hospital, while MS Dr. Khalid Bin Aslam, Dr. Sehrish Iqbal, nurses and allied health professionals attended this event in a large number. The participants of the walk carried safe medicines, texts based on treatment without any harm and proper awareness about it.
Prof. Al-freed Zafar disclosed that in the category of patient protection, doctors have to be very careful while writing prescriptions because all the treatment depends upon it. Similarly, this includes exercising caution to prevent the unnecessary and excessive use of other drugs, including antibiotics, that have adverse effects on the patient’s health, while nurses and allied health professionals also have a responsibility to perform their professional duties as a form of real service because they have the best creation of Allah in their hands which is their responsibility and they have to heal the patient in which nurses and paramedics also have main role. Prof. Al-freed urged that the protection of the patient should be the first priority and we should act upon the slogans in real sense.
