These visuals are purportedly from the Non-Trauma casualty ward of SCB Medical College & Hospital in Cuttack, which is the premier hospital in the State. Around 9 PM on Sunday (August 1), there was power cut in the ward, putting several patients at risk.
The doctors stationed at the ward had then proceeded to use torch lights on their mobile phones & continued treatment for almost 20 minutes. The power cut in a critical ward such as casualty triggered raised concerns. Hospital authorities responded saying that due to a technical error in the back-up machine, the electricity could not be restored.
Authorities said that power supply was restored as soon as possible after undertaking repair work.
