The Philippine National Police (PNP) General Hospital inside Camp Crame will be ready for Senator Juan Ponce Enrile when the Sandiganbayan orders his arrest for plunder and he needs medical attention, police said.

PNP spokesperson Chief Supt. Reuben Theodore Sindac said a specific hospital room will be assigned for Enrile.

"There will be a specific room that will be assigned, together with all the security requirements, including the forces that will be employed for that purpose," he told ANC on Tuesday.

Here's a look at two rooms inside the PNP General Hospital where the 90-year-old senator could be detained.

The first room measures 3 meters by 3 meters, with a toilet separated only by a divider.

It has no aircon and only one small window (with bars) providing ventilation.

The room is commonly used for detainees with medical needs.

The second room, a specialty ward, is where ailing PNP officials are confined.

It measures 3 meters by 4 meters, has a bathroom and shower, an oxygen tank, and a large glass window.

The room is airconditioned.

It is not officially a detention room, and there are no bars on its windows. - report and photos by Chiara Zambrano
