The Tik Tok video, which was recorded inside Sick and New Born Care Unit (SNCU), has created a storm. Chief district medical officer, Ajit Kumar Mohanty, has decided to take the matter legally and hold them responsible for medical negligence.
“They (nurses) will be given show-cause notice and 24-48 hours to submit their reply to this. The department will take action against them,” said Mohanty.
The video has gone viral and even reached the health minister Nabakishore Das, who has also sought details regarding the issue.
"I have asked for a report from the department. They will investigate the matter. After I get a report from the department, I'll take appropriate action as per law," said minister Das, as reported by ANI.
The videos were shot inside the hospital premises. A video even showed a nurse holding a baby. This has met with criticism from Twitterati, who said that this was another reason why Tik Tok should be banned.
