Photo of woman undergoing family planning surgery goes viral

Kandhamal: After multiple incidents of hospital staff making TikTok videos inside hospitals came to fore, a photograph of a woman undergoing surgical contraception procedure has gone viral on social media sparking concerns over the rise in incidents of utter negligence on part of management in hospitals.

According to sources, the woman was undergoing a sterilisation surgery at Tumudibandha Community Health Centre on World Population Day yesterday when someone allegedly clicked picture of the entire operation procedure.

The matter came to light after the picture was found making rounds on social media today.

Even though there are strict provisions barring entry of any mobile phones or cameras inside the operation theatre, the viral photograph of the operation theatre has raised questions on integrity of hospital staff.

While the Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO) could not be contacted over the matter, Baliguda Sub Divisional Medical Officer (SDMO) has condemned the incident.

SDMO Umashankar Tripathy said that Nodal Officer or the District Family Welfare department officer will be able to clarify on the matter.
