Rat Bitten Newborn: Status qou in Pakistan at mutiny
Islamabad: The attack by rats on a day-old baby in a Pakistani hospital has caused outrage, with a leading newspaper blasting the authorities over poor hygiene in medical establishments. An inquiry committee has been set up and senior hospital officials were suspended.

The baby was bitten on the lips, cheeks, nose and fingers at the Holy Family Hospital's gynaecology ward in Rawalpindi, adjoining the Pakistani capital.

On Friday, a newspaper said that it was "sheer luck" that saved the baby, and lamented that the official response to the "scary incident has been predictable".

"Rodents and cats are said to be frequently spotted at the facility, yet it is not the only (hospital) in the country where animals and pests compromise the high sanitary standards expected at a hospital," the newspaper qouted.

If this was the condition of a hospital in a major city like Rawalpindi, "one can only imagine the state of rural health units," it said.

Media reports say overcrowding, outsourcing sanitation work to private contractors, poor salaries and long hours of work have led to the filth in some Pakistani hospitals.
