Hubballi: A video clip of a patient holding his own saline bottle in his hand, allegedly in KIMS, has gone viral in social media.
In the clip, the patient says his name as Shankrappa Angadi and asserts that he was instructed to hold the saline bottle, administered to himself, due to lack of stands. The person, who interviews him, asks whether KIMS is suffering lack of funds. The patient just smiles at him.
However, KIMS medical superintendent Dr Arun Kumar C told TOI that no such patient was admitted in the hospital in the recent days.
“It looks like it was shot intentionally to defame KIMS. It must have been shot somewhere else. Or it must be an old one. Normally, our personnel won’t suggest patients to hold the bottle in their hands. They may suggest it only for a few seconds while arranging the stand for the patient. However, we will inquire further on this video and take appropriate action,” he stated.
