BARISHAL, Nov 11 (UNB): Doctors and nurses at Barishal's Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital (SBMCH) are finding it hard to provide treatment to patients as electricity supply remained snapped in five units of the hospital for the last couple of days. Surgery ward No. 3 and 4 of G-block (male), surgery ward No. 1 of A Block (male) and I block (Eye) have been without electricity for the last three days, while the radiology department has been facing power cuts for the last 18 days.

Naimul Islam, relative of a patient, said that they can't even go to the washroom at night due to lack of electricity.

"We don't get proper treatment at the hospital. Still, we've to come here as we don't have any other place to go. The hospital doesn't even have electricity. I don't know how the hospital is running without monitoring," said Arafat Hossain Shaon, relative of another patient.
