Director of Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), professor A Santa has called upon all concerned to strengthen the patient-doctor relationship in the effort to ensure a conducive hospital atmosphere where both medical practitioners and patients are treated with respect. 

Dr A Santa was speaking during the Doctor's Day celebration at RIMS General OPD Complex on Friday. He exhorted the doctors and medical practitioners to treat patients with care, respect and compassion. "The irreducible core value of a doctor is that he or she cares for the wellbeing of the patients".

The RIMS director also urged the people not to mistreat the doctors who are working to ensure care and safety of patients and not to vandalise hospital properties when misunderstanding or dispute arises.
