After a TV news channel’s expose which showed class 4 employees of the Bulandshahr hospital performing medic and paramedic duties like stitching wounds and administering injections a hospital in Ballia showed a sweeper attending to patients in the emergency ward. There the sweeper was found administering stitches to patients in the emergency ward and even the pharmacist was injecting patients. The doc was conspicuously absent. When asked all the Chief Medical Superintendent would say was that sweepers are not allowed to give injections and that strict action would be taken against those guilty. Sweepers are not allowed to treat patients.
