A 38-year-old man was left bleeding in a hospital in Telangana, India, after being bitten by rats in the respiratory intensive care unit (ICU), NDTV reported.
“The death occurred as a result of complications, not a rat bite,” Dr. K Manohar, Director of Nizams Institute of Medical Sciences, was quoted by NDTV as saying.
“He was hemorrhaging profusely. “Because the bed was soaked in blood, I objected,” the patient’s brother Srikant explained.
Rats were pretty prevalent, according to personnel and patients, due to the drainage system being repaired. “There is nothing we can do while the drainage system is being repaired,” a nurse explained.
