Dhenkanal: Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO) Dr Niranjan Mishra on Thursday sacked warden Manorama Behera, a day after a video showing her administer injection to a patient at the female medicine ward of district headquarters hospital here went viral.
A warden is not permitted to administer an injection to a patient.

She has also been issued a show-cause letter and asked to explain her actions.
The CDMO said that the incident took place about 15-20 days ago and a probe has been launched into how the video went viral.
