MADURAI: Five more nursing students have been admitted to the Government Rajaji Hospital (GRH) here on Sunday with the complaints of vomiting and diarrhoea.

With this, the number of nursing students admitted to the GRH has increased nine in the last two days.

The four nurses, who were admitted on Saturday, were discharged. The condition of the other students was normal. “We are providing best possible treatment to them,” said a senior doctor at the hospital. Earlier this month, more than 100 nursing students were admitted to the hospital with the complaints of diarrhoea and vomiting.

In the first incident, the hospital authorities blamed nurses for not keeping their campus clean. Only after the CPM MLA Annadurai’s visit and an inspection conducted by officials of Food Safety and Drug Administration did the hospital initiate cleaning.

In the recent case too, the officials blamed the nursing students for not taking precautionary measures.
