There was an electrical installation failure in the hospital in Banacha Street. The hospital switched to power supply from generators. The spokeswoman assured us in the conversation that there was no threat to the facility’s patients.
We received the first information about the incident on Kontakt 24. Our reader wrote that there would be no electricity in the hospital in Banacha Street from around 4:30 p.m.
We confirmed the information about the failure in the hospital with Stoen Operator. – We had to turn off the power in the hospital due to an installation failure. This is an internal problem within the hospital, not our Stoen Operator network. All our customers have electricity, said Aleksandra Smolarska from the Stoen Operator press office.
Mateusz Szmelter, a reporter for tvnwarszawa.pl, was on site. – From the side of Banacha Street you can see a lot of dark windows throughout the facility. In other places the light is dimmed. All the lights are on in some rooms, the reporter reported.
“Patients are safe”
We asked about the situation at the press office of the University Clinical Center of the Medical University of Warsaw. – There is a fault, but the hospital has generators that are powered by fuel. All patients are safe. The situation does not pose a threat, said Barbara Mietkowska from the facility’s press office.
