Water entered Osmani Hospital, services were disrupted

Sylhet Representative /

In an hour of rain, water flooded the MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital in Sylhet. The power supply of the hospital has been cut off. The lack of electricity has disrupted the hospital’s surgical department and intensive care unit (ICU).

On Saturday (June 18) at around 12 noon, water started flowing into the ground floor wards from the hospital premises. Authorities were forced to cut off power supply to the hospital’s generator. Director of Osmani Medical College Hospital Brigadier General Mahbubur Rahman Bhuiyan confirmed the information.

“We’re going to try,” he said. I have informed the higher authorities to bring the special generator of Sylhet City Corporation received from the Prime Minister to the hospital. At least the intensive care unit and the surgery department can be kept active.

Mahbubur Rahman Bhuiyan added that 1,760 patients were admitted to the hospital till morning. Now it can grow even more. However, some patients have died due to water entering the hospital.
