Doctors are life saviours and work extremely hard making the right diagnosis and performing life-saving procedures. They often have hectic work hours which leave them little time for self-care and rejuvenation. Dr Bipeenchandra Bhamre, Consultant Cardiac Surgeon at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre in Mumbai says a doctor also has to cope with a lot of negativity and that can take a toll on them. "You will be surprised to know sudden death is higher in doctors than the general population. We all know that doctors have to work in very odd hours, late in the night, most of the weekdays work for more than 14 to 16 hours per day the environment for doctors is very tough as they have to absorb a lot of negativity to bring hope for the patient and family. Although society normally reciprocates this dedicated behaviour of doctors for the welfare of society with a lot of respect for them. All the factors take a toll on doctors' health. We have to stand for long hours and do not get time to eat and also most of the time sleep is also disturbed. Doctors are also human beings. After witnessing the grief of the critical condition of patients, doctors also feel low and sometimes depressive. But they also have to attend the next patient with the same enthusiasm and hope," says Dr Bhamre.
