Madhya Pradesh Hospital Treats Pregnant Woman Under Tree
A saline drip hanging by the branch of a tree under which she lay, a pregnant woman rushed to a government hospital in Madhya Pradesh for delivery was being treated in the open. Hospital staff strung the IV drip that Pooja had to be given on the tree under which she was told to lie on a metal-top bed outside, without a mattress or hospital linen. It turns out the state-run hospital was overflowing with patients, literally.
