Ceiling of the plastic surgery theater fell off in Thiruvananthapuram Medical College

The ceiling of the plastic surgery theater in the medical college hospital has collapsed. It was in a state of disrepair after the ceiling started leaking during rains. The incident happened two days ago. The complaint is that the authorities were hiding it. The ceiling of the surgery theater in the old emergency department has collapsed.

Theaters are closed every year for maintenance. The incident occurred in one of these. There were no surgeries here at the time of the ceiling collapse, so a major emergency was avoided. The surgeries that were to be performed here were changed.

With the closure of a theater, the patients will suffer. At present everything has been shifted to Operation Theater ‘B’ where more surgeries are being done.
