Dhenkanal, Sep 20: In a shocking incident, an attendant of a woman patient allegedly carried her on a stretcher all the way to the market. The incident has been reported from the Dhenkanal District Headquarters Hospital on Saturday evening.

As per reports, the woman hailing from Ichhapur village under Nihalprasad police limits was admitted to the Medicine department of the hospital on Saturday. Later the doctors at the hospital referred her to the SCB Medical College in Cuttack after her condition deteriorated.

The attendant of the patient, however, brought her from the fourth floor of the hospital on a stretcher and later took her to the market. Security guards of the hospital later chased them and managed to bring them back to the hospital.

The attendant claimed that they were taking her to a sorcerer as she was being possessed by a spirit.

The incident has raised question on the security of the government run hospital. The district administration had sacked a pharmacist Subhasmita Sahu a few days ago following an investigation into the death of a Covid-19 positive patient.

A man had reportedly collapsed and died on the premises of the district headquarters hospital (DHH) minutes after he tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday.

A video of the deceased’s wife administering CPR in an attempt to revive him as the hospital staff did not attend the Covid-19 patient had viral on social media.
