Details:

Hospital is in poor condition. 2019 Scabies consumed the hospital. The physical plant: roof leaks, tiles in floor are loose. Nursing care is traveling nurses. The in house hospital doctors are pill pushes, not paying attention to the cause of conditions. Just medicating to ease pain. Do not recommend this hospital.
