Shocking visuals have come out of Hyderabad’s Osmania General Hospital where tree branches appear to have been used as IV stands for patients undergoing treatment. The videos show plastic ropes being used to tie tree branches to hospital beds in order to hang IV drips. Patients have apparently captured the visuals on the fourth-floor ward of the Quli Qutub Shah building. However, Osmania General Hospital Superintendent, Dr. B. Nagender has denied any lack of equipment at the state-run facility.

The Osmania General Hospital was in the news recently because heavy rainfall had caused the ground floor general wards to be flooded. Videos of patients sitting on beds while the ward was filled with ankle-deep water had caused outrage on the internet. Dr. Nagender has said that it’s this incident that had led to the set-up of a temporary ward for the patients who were shifted from the flooded ward.
