usage of 'supposed'


Is this sentence correct grammatically?? "no more surgeries supposed, today." which was to mean 'no more surgeries planned today' Or does it have to be 'no more surgeries supposed to, today' ?

It is grammatically correct, but it is a wrong sentence. It is grammatically correct in that the structures are right. The sign should be


No more surgeries scheduled today


No more surgeries are scheduled today. (a complete sentence)


"Supposed" is not used correctly in the sign.


There are not supposed to be any surgeries today.

No surgeries are expected today.
