Can misses hospital director Josep Balanzat, has announced that all but two of the hospital’s operating theatres have been closed following an infestation of flies.
The announcement was made Thursday 26th January, and it was confirmed that 36 operations due to be undertaken on Thursday, and a further 20 on Friday, have been cancelled as a result.
Urgent operations where the patient can be moved will be redirected to Mallorca, and only those where the patient cannot be transferred will be undertaken in the two theatres that remain open.
Following the discovery of ‘many flies’ in the operating wing a specialist pest control company has been called in and management are confident they will be able to re-open the theatres on Monday.
