Jagtial, February 2
A security guard was seen stitching a patient’s wound in Jagtial Govt Hospital, while the doctor looks on. The video appears as if a junior doctor is watching while a senior doctor is doing an operation.
The incident took place in the Jagtial govt hospital on Tuesday night. A security guard treated the accident victims. It was surprising that the doctor was silently observing but does not even touch the patient.
This is not new in this hospital. Earlier too, when such an incident took place, District Collector Sarath had taken action by suspending the accused doctor and two others. But the story is repeating.
In another incident two days ago, a nurse attended the delivery of a baby in Bibirajupalli of Gollapalli mandal and the baby died. Villagers had then staged a protest against the incident.
The government is encouraging all to take treatment in government hospitals assuring better services. But the actual situation is that security guards are giving treatment instead of doctors in these hospitals.
