We have lot of problem due to non-availability of water, even Washrooms are also dirty”.Another visitor said that “the public toilets-lack running water, stink and the floors are always wet and slippery- so poorly maintained that they are impossible to use and poor conditions are causing problem to people, especially women in the hospital”.He added that “women patients and attendants have been the worst sufferers and toilets in the hospitals are supposed to be cleaner and hygienic but it's other way around in the hospital.”Pertinently, the district hospital Baramulla caters to thousands of patients from across the large area of Baramulla district every day, but when it comes to sanitation, there is lot to be desired.The bathrooms in the hospital are overflowing with dirty even hospital is without water.
