Continuous heavy rains in Patna have led to waterlogging inside the Nalanda Medical College Hospital (NMCH). The entire hospital now resembles a lake, due to which patients and their family members are facing difficulties and are anxious due to lack of medical attention. In the absence of doctors and nurses, the family members are standing with glucose bottles in their hands.

While on one hand, the hospital has turned into a lake due to rains, on the other, patients are being inconvenienced because of lack of treatment. And lack of cleanliness could also lead to the outbreak of new diseases.

Around 50 years old, the NMCH is the oldest and most famous medical college and hospital in Patna. Each day, around 2,500-3,000 patients arrive here for treatment. A few days ago, the ICU of this 750-bed hospital had become waterlogged and fish could be seen swimming in the waters.

Each rainy season, the hospital complex turns into a lake but neither the government takes any action, nor does the administration wake up from its slumber.

Patients facing several difficulties and the brunt of bad weather are forced to come here due to lack of proper medical facilities elsewhere.
