A HOSPITAL accident and emergency department is in a ´catastrophic´ state.

The Medical Union of Malaga (SMM) has blasted the city centre hospital, Carlos Haya for an array of flaws including:

Broken furniture; worn-out chairs; woodworm on door frames; broken decades-old floor tiles; faulty ventilation units; toilets strewn with litter; emergency doors that do not close properly and layers of grime and filth in certain areas.

The SMM are also dismayed that an area of the department that was renewed and renovated in 2016 is being used as a storeroom, claiming the works to be a waste of money as the hospital do not want to hire more staff.

Retaliating to these accusations, the hospital said:

“Those responsible for this union do not take into account the 287 urgent daily attendances performed in this hospital or the capacity to resolve this service.

The reformed area is a perfectly equipped space and is used for expansion in times of greater frequency."
