Cuttack: At a time when the Odisha government has been planning to make the SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack a world-class health institution, patient attendants on its premises have been misbehaved on a daily basis.
One such incident has come to fore after a video went viral on the social media. It can be seen in the video that some security guards employed by a private agency misbehaving with a patient attendant on the premises of the premiere health institution.
After the death of a male patient in the SCB hospital, his attendant wanted to meet the doctor. But the security guards started an argument with the patient attendant without allowing him to meet the doctor.
When the attendant objected to the behavior of the security guards, they can be heard saying in the video “go inform anyone, whom he might want to….no one can do any harm to them.”
Another visitor to the hospital termed the behavior of the private security guards as quite disrespectful and insensible.
Earlier this year, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik announced Rs 3,500 crore to be invested to transform SCB Medical College and Hospital at Cuttack into a world-class health institution and the work will be completed by 2024.
