[size=52]British report: Attacks on doctors are increasing, and a large part of them are considering emigrating[/size]

[size=45]Translation: Hamed Ahmed[/size]
[size=45]A British report confirmed the increase in cases of attacks on doctors in Iraq, and while it indicated that a large part of them are considering emigrating abroad, it spoke of others who refuse to perform complex surgeries due to fear of clan persecution that results in paying high sums to the patient's relatives in the event of his death.[/size]
[size=45]A report by the British newspaper (The Guardian), translated by (Al-Mada), said that "Maryam Ali had just entered the doctors' rest room in the neurosurgery hall when a man grabbed her, threw her to the ground and put the knife to her neck."[/size]
[size=45]The report continued, "The hospital security forces then closed the hospital and arrested the man." He pointed out, "Doctor Maryam says that fortunately for her, the surveillance cameras in the hall were working and they recorded what happened."[/size]
[size=45]And the report stated, "Maryam added: At the time, I remember saying that I would definitely die, I was in complete shock, and cursed the day I became a doctor." He explained, "Maryam, 27, was a resident doctor in her second year after graduation in a surgical hospital in Baghdad when this accident occurred in January 2021."[/size]
[size=45]The report stressed, "The attacker had been arrested and imprisoned, but Maryam had since thought, as is the case with many Iraqi doctors, to leave the country."[/size]
[size=45]And he talked about, “A recent poll of Baghdad governorate doctors revealed that 87% of them were exposed to violence during the six months that followed that incident.”[/size]
[size=45]And the report added, “The majority of these doctors stated that cases of violence against them had escalated since the start of the Corona pandemic, and that three-quarters of the attacks and attacks were committed by patients and their families.”[/size]
[size=45]Maryam says, "The man who attacked her was a thief who often steals from the hospital, and this is an example of the weak security measures that reveal the high rates of violence that doctors are exposed to on the job." The report confirmed, "Maryam and her colleagues complained on several occasions about the broken lock of the doctors' break room, which no one repaired." He stressed, "There is a common case in Iraq that friends and relatives accompany the patient in the hospital, and sometimes their number reaches 15 people. And when a doctor can't treat a dying patient or they feel they've made a mistake, tensions turn into violence." Riyad Lafta, a professor of epidemiology at Al-Mustansiriya University in Baghdad, said, "When the patient goes to the hospital and is in a state of tension and agitation, the doctors have difficulty dealing with him. Patients become angry and tend to attack."[/size]
[size=45]And the report added, "The lax security measures mean that these attacks and attacks may involve weapons, and statistics indicate that 20% of civilians in Iraq own weapons."[/size]
[size=45]His gesture goes back to confirming, “People are worried and armed at the same time, and that there are problems related to the health care system. All of these factors contribute to the escalation of violence.”[/size]
[size=45]The report stressed, "Laftah personally remembers two incidents in which two doctors were killed, and in 2005 a group of 10 doctors were killed in Karbala province, south of Baghdad."[/size]
[size=45]Lafta says, "The tribes operate according to a clan system in Iraq and have developed a new method of extortion."[/size]
[size=45]Lafta added, "These tribes threaten doctors and their families as a result of real or fabricated mistakes, demanding (tribal separation) sometimes amounting to 145 million dinars, and other doctors talked about other penalties amounting to 300 million dinars."[/size]
[size=45]He continues his gesture, that "there is a situation in Iraq, unfortunately, is that most people know that they can get away with it, and when there is no punishment, you can do anything you want." For his part, Qutaiba Othman, a cardiac surgeon, stated that "such problems have made some doctors resort to certain behaviors by performing medical procedures on the patient that are not merely useful to appease his family members."[/size]
[size=45]Othman continued, “When the patient sees that he has died and there are 10 people standing next to you, they will kill you if you say that he is dead, and for this the doctor resorts to giving him an electric shock that stimulates the heart, maybe two or three times or four and even ten, you know that this thing is wrong, But what should you do in such a situation?”[/size]
[size=45]The report pointed out that "Othman says that his colleagues do this procedure daily, and that they take advance precautions in case they expect the death of a patient, which is that they call the hospital security men." He noted that "violence prompted large numbers of doctors to leave the country," noting that "a study conducted in 2017 showed that 77% of junior doctors were considering emigrating, and in 2019 a spokesman for the Ministry of Health said that 20,000 doctors had done so, pointing to The factor of violence is one of the main reasons for this situation.” Doctor Lafta stated, “Violence does not target the person concerned only, but also goes beyond that to his colleagues, family, friends or relatives. Previously, we had the problem of brain drain, and that there are some countries receiving our medical competencies, but today this phenomenon has turned into pushing for immigration, we are doing By pushing our minds to leave Iraq because of the violence. The report added, “The clan sanctions and threats also push doctors to avoid complex surgeries. New graduate doctors avoid complex surgeries such as heart surgeries or emergency operations.” Doctor Osmani says, “My specialist is cardiac surgery, and the death rates are always high. And the report went, “The Iraqi government tried to combat this problem by legislating the Doctor’s Protection Law of 2020, according to which the doctor is allowed to carry a pistol while working,” while the doctor considers his gesture “to be ridiculous because he believes that the expansion of the scope of gun ownership is behind the phenomenon of violence in the first place.” “. Doctor Osmani says, “My specialist is cardiac surgery, and the death rates are always high. And the report went, “The Iraqi government tried to combat this problem by legislating the Doctor’s Protection Law of 2020, according to which the doctor is allowed to carry a pistol while working,” while the doctor considers his gesture “to be ridiculous because he believes that the expansion of the scope of gun ownership is behind the phenomenon of violence in the first place.” “. Doctor Osmani says, “My specialist is cardiac surgery, and the death rates are always high. And the report went, “The Iraqi government tried to combat this problem by legislating the Doctor’s Protection Law of 2020, according to which the doctor is allowed to carry a pistol while working,” while the doctor considers his gesture “to be ridiculous because he believes that the expansion of the scope of gun ownership is behind the phenomenon of violence in the first place.” “.[/size]
[size=45]The report continued, "The doctor, Maryam, says that she lost her confidence in the health system after the victim's clan visited her home at night to pressure her to withdraw the case and give up. She returned to work, but she is thinking of emigrating." The report went on, "Maryam says: I am very attached to my family, I do not think that it is useful to live alone than others, it is the only reason that stands in front of me thinking of emigrating."[/size]
