The Delhi Police have released an adv assuring citizens they can now rush a trauma victim on city roads to hospital and leave immediately, with or without revealing their identity.

The adv says “The priority is the victim. So, now save a life readily, it is free of harassment.”

It reads: When seconds count, questions don’t.

Saving an accident victim is now easy. The very first golden hour is critical, it decides the victim’s fate.

Police is also reaching out to hospital staff and doctors.

Doctors have no business questioning a Good Samaritan. They should focus on the victim. There’s no need to wait for the police to reach the hospital before accepting a medico-legal case.

There are clear directions from the Supreme Court that doctors in government and private hospitals must promptly attend to accident victims without waiting for the police to arrive. [Source TOI]
