Beni Hospital is in desperate need of personnel

Beni Hospital

Beni Hospital’s intensive care unit and ventilators have yet to be fully operational due to a lack of human resources, according to the hospital.

According to Bel Bahadur Katuwal, chairperson of the hospital management committee, the hospital has established a five-bed ICU and two ventilators at a cost of Rs 17 million provided by the Ministry of Social Development of Gandaki Province.

“The hospital will require six additional doctors and 12 additional staff nurses. If the provincial government is unable to manage human resources, we have asked for permission to do so internally,” he said.
