BHOLA: Suddenly, the plaster of the roof of the emergency department of Lalmohan Upazila Health Complex in Bhola collapsed on Thursday.

However, no one was injured as the doctors and staffs were in another room as there were no patients in the emergency department at the time of the incident.

The incident happened on Thursday afternoon. However, the entire roof of the emergency department is still at risk. Big accident can happen at any time and the incident is causing panic among the doctors and staff of the emergency department.

The health complex medical officer Dr Fahad Nasir said the roof of the emergency department has been at risk for the past one-year-and-a-half. “The incident took place as no proper action was taken even after repeatedly informing the concerned authorities. The roof of the emergency department needs to be repaired quickly, or a bigger accident could happen.”

Residential medical Officer Dr Md Mohsin Khan said he has heard about the incident.
