KUALA LUMPUR – The main entrance of the Damai Service Hospital in Taman Melawati here was splashed with white paint this morning.
The hospital’s Finance and Administration manager, S. Regina said in the incident at about 3.30 am, a security guard heard noises at the main entrance before he saw two men running off.
She said security guards who searched the area found two plastic bags of white paint and a paint can which had been used to splash the door of the entrance.
“The closed circuit television (CCTV) showed two men throwing the can of paint before escaping on their motorcycles which were parked at a premises near the hospital.
“We have lodged a police report and they have viewed the CCTV recording to trace the two men,” she told Bernama here today.
Regina refused to comment when asked if the incident was connected to the hospital terminating the services of a nurse who refused to wear the hospital’s short-sleeved uniform.
“I cannot make wild accusations, the hospital has been getting many criticisms after the issue went viral on social media,” she said.
Last Friday, Naziah Sauni Samat, 24, revealed at a press conference that her services at the private hospital had been terminated after she failed to comply by its regulations on the uniform.
The instruction to wear the uniform was issued two months after she began working at the hospital and was based on cleanliness and hygiene factors.
Meanwhile, Ampang District Police Chief ACP Khairuldin Saad confirmed receiving a report on the incident. – BERNAMA
