TANAHUN: The Damauli hospital in the district headquarters of Tanahun is facing shortage of anti-venom because of which it is struggling to provide treatment to snakebite patients.
The hospital receives at least two snakebite cases every day.
Due to the lack of anti-venom, the hospital has been compelled to refer serious patients elsewhere, according to medical officer at the hospital, Dr Dibas Dhakal.
The 15-bed hospital in Tanahun also lacks resources to deal with the patients.
The hospital, which provides treatment to patients with mental health, tuberculosis, eye and dental problems, has also video X-ray, X-ray, maternity, OPD and dialysis services.
