Sagarmatha Zonal Hospital ailing

Rajbiraj
Gajendra Narayan Singh Sagarmatha Zonal Hospital in Rajbiraj, Saptari, is in a sorry state with concerned authorities turning a blind eye to the problems faced by the hospital. Only one doctor is available at the hospital although it has a quota for 18 specialist doctors.
Department of Health has neither been able to fulfill all the vacant positions nor provide necessary health equipment.

Medicine scarcity
According to the store section of the hospital, it has been running without essential medicines for the last seven months. As a result, locals are deprived of essential medicines distributed by the government free of cost.
Zonal hospital distributes 70 types of medicines for free to citizens, Yadav said, adding that the hospital has not even a single medicine available in the store. Extremely poor people who cannot afford medicines suffer the most due to the unavailability of medicines, he said.
