CHENNAI: Most government hospitals in the city have fewer ventilators than sanctioned or necessary. Several ventilators are unused as they've not been maintained, as per data obtained through an RTI application by TOI.

 

In Government Stanley Medical College Hospital, 22 of the 50 ventilators are not working. In Government General Hospital, 19 ventilators are not working. Government Royapettah Hospital and Government Kasturba Gandhi Hospital have only 13 ventilators each. Government Kilpauk Hospital did not reply to the RTI application.

 

A ventilator is a life-saving equipment that helps a patient breathe. A hospital requires ventilators in its intensive care unit (ICU), intensive cardiac care unit (ICCU), TB ward, neonatal ICU and casualty ward. Chennai's government hospitals get about 150 critically ill patients every day, not just from the city but also from districts.
