The patients of the district are facing difficulties because of not having nurse. The district of Baitadi has 5 posts for the nurses however there are not even a single nurse working according to doctor Jagdish Bista.
There were four posts for staff nurses in district hospital alone however none of them are occupied. Because of not having nurses, the maternity services have been severely affected. Said Dr Bista. The district also have a service for critical maternity issue however it is not operating due to the lack of nurse service. During the operation services, nurses plays a vital role and at present ANM is giving hand to doctor.
