Good Samaritan Hospital has issued a safety advice on how to avoid getting bitten by a stray dog during a visit to their hospital.
On a visit on Wednesday to their emergency room, staff at the hospital discovered a dog was still loose and walking near a patient.
The dog was later taken to the hospital for further examination.
The staff decided to take the dog into their own care as it was very dangerous and they felt that it was a good idea to take it in with them as they did not want to disturb the patient.
A doctor on site then performed a thorough medical examination on the dog, finding no evidence of bite wounds.
The hospital decided to return the dog to the animal shelter.
In a message posted on its Facebook page, the hospital said they are now taking the dog back to the veterinary clinic where it will be rehomed, and the staff is working to locate the dog’s owner.
