Jeypore hospital flooded after rains

Jeypore: Incessant rain in Jeypore of Koraput district has resulted into water logging in the labour room of the sub-divisional hospital causing misery for admitted patients.

Notably, Jeypore has been experiencing heavy rainfall since yesterday. Rain water started entering the hospital yesterday night flooding the labour room.

According to sources, there were four patients admitted in the ward. After delivery three of them have been shifted to another ward, while one patient is still present in the labour room.

As per sources, the labour room was recently constructed. It is alleged that due to some flaws in the building plan and construction of the labour room it is resulting into water logging during rainy days. It is also alleged that water from nearby drains and toilets have entered the ward.

Though the hospital staffs have taken steps to clear the water logging from the room, the situation is far from normal.

Meanwhile the hospital authorities are yet to respond on the matter.
