Several people including babies have been rescued from Lismore Base Hospital in northern New South Wales after the roof of the maternity ward collapsed.
The clean-up is continuing after a severe storm hit the New South Wales North Coast on Sunday afternoon leaving thousands without power and displacing some patients at Lismore Base Hospital.
The Health Services Union is calling for an investigation into building standards at the Lismore Base Hospital on the NSW north coast after scaffolding collapsed onto the roof of the maternity ward during Sunday's storm.
