After the complaint made last Sunday, March 22, by the Essalud doctors’ union that did not receive the reception in different media, in The Black Heralds we agreed to the complaint of staff of the Hospital Daniel Alcides Carrión who asserts that they must lie and lend material to be able to cover themselves since the Government has not provided them with the necessary equipment for their protection.
«The situation is precarious. There are no N95 masks, or biosafety shoes, we ourselves have to go to other wards. Furthermore, we have to lie, (say) that we are medical interns […]. Our work is precisely linked to the ICU part. We are exposed to so many bacteria and we do not have the necessary implements and we resorted to lending us used implements from other wards», said the intern with initials J. M. of the hospital.
It should be noted that, after the demand of the United Essalud Guilds to withdraw the ex-Midis minister, Fiorella Molinelli, from the Essalud Directorate, she had recently sent a certain amount of the required material to the provinces. However, the situation in hospitals in various areas of the country also demands better working conditions and training for medical personnel in the event of an emergency.
