Baruch (Gujarat) [India], Aug 20 (ANI): In a case of medical negligence, a sweeper gave stitches to a patient in Gujarat's Baruch Civil Hospital. The matter came to light after the video of the incident surfaced on social media on Sunday.
Taking note of the matter, the resident medical officer (RMO) of the hospital assured action in the incident. "We are investigating the case and once it is complete, we will inform the higher authorities. Action will be taken accordingly," RMO S. R. Patel told ANI.
In the video, the class four employee of the hospital was seen giving stitches to a man, despite nurses and a doctor being present at the scene.
