A health post where water has to be fetched from home for the sick

2022 Mar 01, 14:41,

Water is considered indispensable for health but patients at a health post in Dang are not even allowed to drink water. There is still no provision of drinking water in the health post at Phulbari of Tulsipur Sub-metropolis-13. Gyan Bahadur Dangi, in-charge of the health post said that patients have to fetch water from their homes as there is no water in the health post operating in the area since 2031 BS.

 "The biggest problem is drinking water in our health posts. As there is no water supply here, patients have to fetch water from home," he said. Sometimes the staff has to bring water to feed the patients.

 Despite repeated requests to the concerned bodies for the connection of the taps, it has not been successful. As shallow tubes can be connected in the office, discussions have been started for this, said Dangi.

The health post has one Anami, two Ahabs, one Public Health Inspector and one Lab Assistant. In-charge Dangi said that there was a problem even though labs, birthing centers and other services were in operation but there was no standard building. "We have 10 blocks of land. There is a problem. " Inchaj Dangi said that a coveted building was also needed.

Six monthly at the birthing center

The birthing center at the health post receives an average of six people a month, while the lab services an average of 20-22 people a month. As the sub-metropolitan government has not provided the necessary materials for the lab, the staff has to bring them.

Interest of the Minister of State

Minister of State for Health of Lumbini Bimalakumari Khatri (Wali) has shown interest after complaints about the health post increased. He said that he would take initiative to improve the health post after monitoring it. "There is a problem with water, we have to buy materials ourselves, there is a problem with the building," he said. "I will take initiative to solve this problem."
