A 38-year-old man left bleeding by rats inside the ICU of Warangal's MGM Hospital, and subsequently shifted to Hyderabad's NIMS Hospital, died. Director of Nizams Institute of Medical Sciences, Dr K Manohar, said that Srinivas had a history of chronic alcoholism. His liver, pancreas and kidneys were badly affected. He was already on ventilator and had suffered a cardiac attack twice before. "Even on the way to NIMS, he suffered a heart attack and came with a very poor pulse and BP," he said. "The death happened due to these complications and not due to rat bite," he said. Patients and public are, however, enraged and shocked at the state of affairs at MGM Hospital.
