Security guard administers glucose drips to patient, video goes viral


Security guard administers glucose drips to patient, video goes viral

Bengaluru: 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 there.

Speaking to a local news channel, district surgeon Dr Raghuram said that the matter would be enquired 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.

  1. If no adequate staff or doctors are posted on duty, glucose bottles and even suturing will happen by ward boys, nothing new.. Doctors are always scape goats. With so many unemployed MBBS doctors and BSC nurses, why they are not able to fill vacancies. They should give good salaries and adequate staff and adequate facilities, then people will join.
