PTI Jan 11, 2019

In a shocking incident, a security guard at a district hospital allegedly administered glucose drips to a patient and a video of it has gone viral on the social media.

The video shows the security guard handling the glucose bottle and administering it to the patient. It was reportedly shot recently by relatives of another patient undergoing treatment at the Chamarajanagara district hospital, to highlight the alleged apathy of doctors and nursing staff.

Local health department officials said that the administration of the hospital comes under the purview of the government medical college in Bengaluru. Speaking to a local news channel, district surgeon Dr Raghuram said that the matter would be inquired into and action taken.

Claiming that he was out of town on official duty, he said he was heading back to the hospital and would look into the issue, along with the Dean and the Director of the medical college. Last year, another video of the hospital ward being illuminated with mobile phones during a power cut had gone viral.
