Dhenkanal: A brief spell of rain in Dhenkanal has resulted in waterlogging in the District Headquarters Hospital (DHH), leaving the patients in the lurch here on Sunday.

The situation has become worse with rain water entering the wards of the hospital, bringing misery for patients.

"With water everywhere, the hospital has become completely unhygienic and the patients are risking their lives as there can be a chance of dengue outbreak and other diseases," alleged a patient's relative.

Till now, no efforts have been made to drain out the water, sources said.
