Women made to lie on floor after surgery

On being inquired about the incident, the officials of the health centre said women were asked to lay down on carpet as repair work was going on in the hospital ward.

"When I inquired about it I was told that the room is being repaired and there were many patients. So they were made to lie down on carpets on floors. They should have given them beds. I have given them strict instructions," said DN Gaurtam, Satna CMHO.

Condemning the incident, State Health Minister Rustam Singh said, "This is inhumane and can't be tolerated. I have directed officers to conduct an investigation and take strict actions against people responsible."

"A doctor must always be sensitive and the staff should have been more alert," Singh added.
