Malkangiri: Tension prevailed at Malkangiri district headquarters hospital last night after a Doctor created ruckus in the emergency ward of the hospital in an inebriated condition.
Sources said doctor Siman Mishra allegedly misbehaved with the kin of a patient while they approached the doctor for a signature on the requisition slip to get blood unit for the patient. However, Mishra who was resting on his chair in an intoxicated state manhandled them for disturbing him at the time and the whole incident was captured on camera. Mishra had joined the hospital on August 24, 2017.
The doctor’s ill gesture towards the patient’s kin flared up an unpleasant situation at the hospital following which both the sides started a war of words.
On being informed, the hospital authorities and the district ADMO rushed to the hospital and drove the doctor to his home to restore normalcy in the hospital premises.
Mishra’s misconduct has raised questions over the health services provided to the people of the tribal dominated district with many locals demanding stringent action against the doctor.
