BHB spokesperson responds to hospital emergency room flood

A flood at the Emergency Department entrance of BHB yesterday evening caused disruption of service for a brief period of time, TNN News received a statement from a BHB spokesperson.

“There was some flooding in the wait room area of the Emergency Department of King Edward VII Memorial Hospital around 5:30pm on Saturday 17 February. The water did not reach the clinical Emergency Department area. Patients in the wait room were taken to another wait area and people arriving to Emergency were directed to another entrance while the matter was addressed.

“The flood was the result of a flush valve on a public toilet near the wait room, breaking. The matter was quickly fixed, water suctioned out and the entire area terminally cleaned. The wait room re-opened to the public around 10.30pm.

“There was no impact to patient care.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the flood.”
