Ceiling Slabs Collapse In MKCG Hospital In Odisha’s Berhampur

Berhampur: A week after a fire mishap at its Plastic Surgery ward, ceiling slabs at MKCG Medical College and Hospital in Berhampur reportedly collapsed on Thursday.

According to sources, the incident took place on the fifth floor of the Super Specialty Block of the hospital.  It is being suspected that the slabs might have collapsed after soaking up water since droplets were seen on the surface.

Several questions are now being raised about its quality of construction. The August 26 fire mishap was also reported from this building of the premier health institute and since then operation theatres of Urology and Plastic Surgery departments here have remained closed. The slabs fell to the ground near the ICU of the Urology department, which is still functioning. However, no one was injured in the incident, the sources added.
