At least three persons have been suspended after a video of a patient being dragged to X-ray room on a bedsheet went viral. The appalling video, which underlines medical apathy and negligence in our public health system, is of a government medical college in Madhya Pradesh's Jabalpur.
A video posted by news agency ANI shows a hospital attendant dragging the patient on what looks like a bedsheet. Three people were suspended after the video of the incident from Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Medical College (NSCBMC) went viral.
