Osmania Medical college Medicos hospitalized due to food poisoning
Hyderabad: Almost 43 MBBS students attached to Osmania Medical College were rushed to Gandhi Hospital and Fever Hospital on Monday after they complained of nausea and diarrhoea due to food poisoning.
Besides the unfortunate incident, a shortage of beds at Osmania General Hospital to accommodate the affected medicos added to the plight. Many of the doctors have expressed their dissatisfaction over the fact that the medicos of the college had to be rushed to Gandhi Hospital and Fever Hospital, despite the fact that Osmania General Hospital was the nearest.
Soon the medicos, whose condition were deteriorating were rushed to the hospitals and were diagnosed with food poisoning. Among the medicos, some have suffered from severe symptoms while some have shown mild symptoms and are being treated on the premises.
Commenting on the entire incident, Surender told Deccan Chronicle, " It is exam time and so most of us are avoiding eating outside food these days. I ate the same food at the mess on Saturday but did get affected, maybe because I did not eat some particular items. Students started to experience the first episode at around 11 pm. Because the incubation period is eight hours for food poisoning symptoms to show, it seems like it was the lunch that started it."
