Patients hit hard after x-ray machine goes dysfunctional
Biratnagar (Bargachhi), Dec 11: Hundreds of patients coming to Koshi Zonal Hospital in Biratnagar for treatment are facing tough time with the hospital's x-ray machine lying idle due to technical snag.
Of two x-ray machines available in the hospital, one has been lying dysfunctional for the past couple of years. Daily over 800 patients visit the Zonal Hospital – popular among the people with low economic status – for treatment.

Patients from 16 districts of the eastern region and Indian bordering area also come to receive treatment from the hospital. RSS
