The ceiling tile collapsed in the emergency room of the Sakhalin Regional Clinical Hospital. None of the patients and health workers were injured.

According to the press service of the Sakhalin Oblast government, the incident occurred this morning - four tiles of the false ceiling fell out. Specialists dismantled some parts of the structure and started repairs. The authorities will file a claim against the construction company that installed the ceiling at the hospital in December 2019.

According to the deputy chairman of the regional government, Vladimir Yushchuk, the cause of the collapse is the slab fasteners weakly twisted by the contractor. The hospital is now checking the ceilings in all rooms to avoid such incidents.
