Waikato Hospital buildings fail fire safety standards

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 18 June 2019

Waikato Hospital buildings including the child and women's health centre do not have warrants of fitness because they are not up to scratch for fire protection.

Other buildings do have warrants but also have multiple defects in firestopping.

That includes the outpatients block that opened just five years ago.

Phil Pennington is looking into this. He joins Susie Ferguson with the details.
