Doctors have confirmed that the patient is currently undergoing treatment at Rajasthan hospital's ICU.

In a shocking incident, a paralysed woman who was in the Intense Care Unit (ICU) at a hospital in Rajasthan, was nibbled by rats. Doctors have confirmed that the patient is currently undergoing treatment. The woman is a resident of the Kota railway colony. Registering a complaint against the hospital authorities, the woman's husband said that the horrific incident showed that the government and the state health department have been negligent.

"The need of the hour is that the government should take concrete action against those who have been negligent. He further added, "If any mishap happens, it is expected that it will not be repeated. But the case of the death of newborn babies inside the Kota hospital and now the eyes of a paralyzed woman being gnawed by a rat proves the gross negligence of the hospital administration."

Expressing deep concerns over poor health facilities in the hospital, Samir Tondon, Deputy Superintendant at MBS Hospital, Kota, said, "Roopvati Bai is a 55-year-old patient who is admitted to the stroke unit for the past 45 days. She is suffering from Guillain-Barr syndrome. Last night, a rat bit her in her right eye. We will probe the incident."

He further added, "We'll probe. We've monthly pesticide control. If anything like that happened, it's the responsibility of the staff. Her attendant was with her."
