BJ mulls setting up Police posts at hospitals

BEIJING: Beijing’s legislature has started deliberating a draft regulation on ensuring the security of hospitals after a spate of assaults on doctors sparked public outrage. If passed, the regulation will require large hospitals to set up police offices and introduce security checks to prevent any dangerous objects being taken into hospitals. It will ban behaviors including insulting and beating medics, making an uproar to disrupt hospital operation, setting up “mourning halls” in hospitals, and other disruptive acts commonly taken by protesting families of deceased patients. – Agencies
