Wheelchairs are being used to dispose garbage in Andhra Pradesh hospitals

In Nellore hospital, Andhra Pradesh, wheelchairs are being used to dispose and transport garbage, as the patients are left to suffer. The hospital staff said that they have not been provided trolleys by the hospital administration to shift garbage from dustbins to dumping grounds and such incidents have been reported from many other parts of Andhra Pradesh recently, where people are facing viral fever like dengue, malaria but they find themselves to be short on basic infrastructure like wheelchairs.

The staff also said that they are left with no other option, either they have to litter garbage there only or use the wheelchairs to transport the garbage. They are also alleging that they have not been given salaries by the hospital, and they are working under very tough conditions.

This is really saddening to see in such conditions.
