Even if plastic is applied, it often blows off.

Medical bed is also in dilapidated condition

The ventilator is not the only one fighting for survival at the Surat Civil Hospital. When the team of TV9 visited the second ward. After this even more shocking scenes were seen. The medical electronic beds here are used in the emergency wards including the ICU, though they too are seen in a dilapidated condition. These medical beds are scattered haphazardly like junk in a room. These beds, which provide comfort to patients, are kept in such a way that they are not to be used again. No maintenance, no decoration and no arrangement. If the life-saving equipment is in such a condition, then it can be understood to what extent the negligence would be going on in the government hospital.
