A video which surfaced on social media on Sunday showed a sweeper give stitches to a patient in a Gujarat hospital, ANI reports.
The incident took place in Barch Civil Hospital in Gujarat.
Taking note of the matter, the resident medical officer (RMO) of the hospital assured action in the matter. “We are investigating the case and once it is complete, we will inform the higher authorities. Action will be taken accordingly,” RMO SR 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.
The sweeper in question is apparently a repeat offender, and was involved in a similar incident three months ago when he was filmed giving stitches to another patient.
