The rapid action of the maintenance team, cleaning personnel and firemen, have allowed the hospital to minimise the damage.

The most affected areas of the hospital were the Nuclear Medicine and Rehabilitation units.

All activity in these areas were halted until the water was removed and the electromedical equipments dried out.

San Alberto Magno Street near the Outpatient Building was closed off for over three hours.

Outside, the intense rainfall took the occupants of a vehicle by surprise, trapping them inside their car in the hospital’s parking lot.

Firefighters were called out to rescue the group, the 112 Andalucian emergency services reported.
