Abstract: Background- The medical field is full of knowledge, starting from the basic body physiology and anatomy to the vast clinical findings and symptoms. Medical professionals are often regarded as the most intelligent of minds due to their immense knowledge and ability to improve one's health. Nevertheless, this is one part of the story, the medical practitioners are also beaten, abused and disrespected. We planned to conduct a study on the doctor's point of view - Their awareness of the situation, the laws of the country regarding it and what they think is necessary for its prevention. Objectives-To assess the views of medical professionals regarding the rising cases of medical vandalism in India. Methodology: A validated questionnaire was distributed to be filled amongst the doctors of AVBRH as well as private practitioners or doctors running a nursing home, after obtaining a written consent and due clearance from Institution's Ethical Committee. The results were then analyzed statistically and their answers were recorded and tabulated and represented in pie charts. Results: It is expected that out of the 200 doctors that will be interviewed, almost all of them will be aware of the existence of vandalism. We also expect to ascertain the most prevalent triggering factor for the same. Conclusion: As the current scenario goes; lots of news of medical vandalism are in vogue. This is an ugly depiction of the health care system our nation and countries all over the globe are facing. India being a developed nation with overwhelming population, and disease burden is facing the brunt of medical vandalism day in and day out. Tackling this situation remains a challenge.
