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."
