The recent heavy downpour that hit Jakarta, flooded Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital (RSCM), possibly damaging several pieces of valuable medical equipment, according to an article on the Jakarta Post website.
Flood waters inundated the hallway of RSCM's GH building, with the water reaching ankle-height. The water also entered the radiology and radiotherapy rooms by the hallway.
“Equipment [affected by the] flood includes a stationary ceiling x-ray machine, a mobile x-ray machine, two CT scan machines, one ultrasound unit and one Siemens MRI machine, according to officials.
RSCM president director said the hospital's medical facility team, the Jakarta health facility security center and vendors of the medical equipment were inspecting the condition of the affected machines.
