Patna: A negligence on the part of the health department surfaced in Bihar’s Jamui district where the medical staff at the Sadar hospital attached a cold drink bottle to a patient instead of a urine bag.
The patient, who was found injured on a railway track, was rescued by GRP personnel who admitted him to the Sadar hospital on Monday night.
The medical staff present at the hospital attached a cold drink bottle to the patient instead of a urine bag on Tuesday. A video of the incident has gone viral on social media.
“As the stocks of urine bags and some necessary medicines were finished at the hospital, some employees attached a cold drink bottle to the patient. It is a serious matter and hence we have initiated an inquiry into it,” said Ramesh Pandey, hospital superintendent.
