In Agra, Patients on Carts, Garbage Bins Ride Stretchers

Patients were seen being transported in hand-pulled carts.

Agra: Hand-pushed carts, the kind seen with neighbourhood vegetable vendors, is apparently being used to ferry patients in one of Agra's top hospitals.

While patients are seen being carried on these carts when they are shifted from one department to another, garbage bins carrying hospital waste are moved on stretchers.

This was the scene at the Sarojini Naidu Medical College, which claims to be among the first medical schools in the country.

The Principal of the Hospital, when asked about the surprising arrangement, said an investigation will be conducted into the matter.
