There was a shapefile with health facilities of Nepal. Many of the nodes
were in the middle of no where. So were nearby health facilities already in
OSM but many were not. I recommended not importing the data. I also believe
that there was questionable license associated with the file. I'm unable to
find the data and may have deleted it already.
