IMSS doctor fired who reported lack of equipment

Author: Omar Hernández / Correspondent


Two months after retiring, a neurosurgeon in Zacatecas was fired as a specialist doctor of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), on the instructions of the delegate in the entity, after the doctor repeatedly denounced the lack of equipment, infections and deaths to consequence of the coronavirus covid-19.

The neurosurgeon assured that the delegate fabricated an alleged case of medical malpractice to fire him.

I tell him that he must be operated on, he never says yes, he never tells me if he is not going to operate, on Monday the note remains in my own handwriting, something that the delegate disappeared deviously to look for the patient to operate on and the patient to At six o’clock in the afternoon on Friday he signs a voluntary discharge to go with that engineer who was going to cure his cancer, the patient returns to social security a week later and one of my colleagues operates him “

What had to be done was done, the patients simply looked for other non-surgical alternatives, magical medicine alternatives, they realized that it was not like that and they returned to the institute, like they think that if they came with me I would not treat them, because in In theory, a patient who signs a voluntary discharge from the Institute should no longer receive them, in theory, how good they received it, how good they operated on him, how good the man is fine and that is how it would have been from the beginning, “he added.

The first administrative battle where the case was reviewed was already resolved by his superiors, the doctor reported.

My boss, Dr. Esaú Lozano Prado, where he answers to the director, regarding this case, we cannot give the names; and he says at the end: We did not find omissions and there is no lack of regulation for medical benefits by the working personnel because the complaint filed is not considered appropriate, “he said.

The delegate has not issued a response regarding the dismissal of the doctor; weeks ago, she downplayed complaints to her administration for the lack of protective equipment.

What is not valid is that people take advantage to make a situation of protagonism “, said Saandra Durán, IMSS delegate in Zacatecas.

Due to this dismissal, several unions of teachers, miners and government workers are already preparing demonstrations to demand the reinstatement of the doctor.

We cannot allow these practices to continue and stop in their tracks and demand that the Social Security Delegate here in Zacatecas immediately reinstate Dr. Armando Rosales Torres, “said Alejandro Rivera, general secretary of the Zacatecas Independent Workers Union.

And we publicly denounce that if what is not done is done, we as a bloc will have to support the comrade… the comrades in the health sector, “said Sandra Zúñiga, spokeswoman for section 24 of the SNTE.

Dr. Rosales assures that once he resolves the lawsuit for unjustified dismissal, he will begin a tour throughout the country to give support to his colleagues who suffer from lack of equipment or working conditions in the face of the pandemic.

Mexico | Andrés Manuel López Obrador asks not to use rented computers and not to charge cell phones in public entities

To personnel and salary cuts in the public administration of Mexico, recommendations such as not using the computer or not charging the cell phone in the offices, as part of austerity plan Andrés Manuel López Obrador, which drowns officials amid the pandemic.

When he came to power in 2018, the President lowered the salaries of senior positions, stopped purchases of official vehicles and it limited all kinds of expenditures within the Government to end waste and corruption.

A snip that delved to circumvent the economic crisis derived from the pandemic through a decree of April 23 that cut 75% of the budget this year for general services, materials and supplies, which has forced federal agencies to juggle to continue operating.

No light, no water, no compus

In July, austerity became visible as never before.

Ministries such as the Ministry of Economy established limited hours for the use of electricity and recommended using the stairs to avoid elevators, reduce water consumption or clean work spaces, due to the cut in cleaning personnel.

Even some agencies have requested that officials give part of their salary “voluntarily”.

“Recommendations such as not charging your cell phone do exist but in general there is no strict supervision. I will continue to charge my cell phone as necessary,” Francisco, an official of the Ministry of Labor, tells Efe this Sunday.

What caused a special stir was the cancellation of computer rental contracts to external companies and inviting officials to use your own equipment.

Manuel Lopez Obrador He said that there was corruption in the rental of this equipment, said that computers “are not the most important thing” and recalled that the fathers of the country never used computers.

“Imagine those who fought in other times for freedom, justice, democracy and sovereignty. Were they waiting for them to have their computers to fight and transform?”, He justified.

Francisco, who is involved in the government’s star program of scholarships and apprenticeships “Young People Building the Future”, says that they asked him if he could use his own computer and he said yes, as did most of his colleagues.

And it seems to him an “idiocy” that the Secretariat did not have its own computers. Yes i know “I should support the workers to get their equipment”, he claims.

Much tougher is the labor advisor Patricia Juan Pineda, who emphasizes to Efe that “information and data protection are being put at risk” with the use of personal equipment.

“They take away computers, no water, no paper, no soap… Every employer must provide the necessary tools for the performance of functions, “he claims.

Not returning to work after the pandemic

Laura is in “administrative limbo”. She entered a community culture program of the Ministry of Culture a year ago but since the quarantine began in March she has not returned to work nor has she been formally fired.

“They continued to pay me to calm the waters during the first two months but they gave many of us to understand that we better start looking for work,” says Laura (not her real name), concerned about the difficulty of finding a job in the middle of the pandemic, which collapsed the Mexican GDP 18.9% in the second quarter of the year.

Hiring in the Mexican administration is a long-standing problem, since for decades staff has been increased by fees and with low salaries, which unlike the base personnel do not have employment benefits.

“Due to the austerity programs, there are no new jobs, but the workload is very high and people are hired by chapter 3,000, which puts workers at a disadvantage,” he says.

Chapter 3,000 is precisely the one that corresponds to expenses for general services, now cut by the presidential decree, so they are cannon fodder for layoffs.

Patricia Juan Pineda says that these contracts have been used by previous Administrations to “to bring in compadres of the government on duty”, something you want to reverse Andrés Manuel López Obrador. However, it warns that the generalized layoffs affect dependencies where more than half of the workers were for fees.

“In areas where there were five people, now there are two people doing the same job and the worst thing is that cleaning has been done without objective criteria and they have fired people who know how to do things,” he explains.

Programs and service in jeopardy

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, from the leftist National Regeneration Movement (Morena), excluded the Health Ministry and priority infrastructure works from cuts to its social support programs.

And although officially the snip is in operating expenses and not in the financing of programs, austerity afflicts a myriad of areas that do not interest the president so much.

Amnesty International raised its voice against cuts by the National Institute of Women, in a country with ten femicides a day.

While the Oscar winners Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu put a face to the malaise of the cultural world by opposing the abolition of the public investment fund for cinema.

Complaints that even reach the fire department of Mexico City, whose city council has copied the federal government austerity plan, due to the lack of protective equipment against the pandemic, which has placed Mexico as the third country in the world with the most deaths by COVID-19.

“The measures are strictly economic, they are trying to protect the budget at the expense of the health of those who work there,” says a firefighter who prefers to remain anonymous.

Mexico City police chief survives attack and blames powerful cartel | Latin America

The armored car in which the Mexico City police chief and his bodyguards followed was attacked in one of the capital’s wealthy neighborhoods: another car blocked his way, while a group of men with heavy caliber weapons fired. Another police car arrived quickly, but the attackers managed to escape, leaving behind the bullet-ridden armored vehicle.

The target of the attack was Omar García Harfuch, who was hit in the shoulder, collarbone and knee, but survived. Two of his bodyguards were killed in the attack, and a 26-year-old woman who was driving with family members was also shot and killed. The scene of the attack was the chic neighborhood of Lomas de Chapultepec, where many wealthy families live and even residences of ambassadors.

Hours after the attack, in the early hours of Friday, García Harfuch published on Twitter an accusation against the Jalisco Nova Geração Cartel, probably the most powerful in the country, which he blamed for the “cowardly” attack.

The diary The country says that this attack in a prime area of ​​the capital shows the weakness of the authorities. Specialist Gladys McCormick of the University of Syracuse in New York commented to Reuters that this is proof that “no one is safe” from attempts by the criminal group to attack. McCormick has no doubts about the authorship of the attack, which follows the modus operandi of the Jalisco Nova Geração group “to detail”.

Led by a former policeman, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, known as “El Mencho” – classified in March as America’s No. 1 enemy – the group uses violence as a method of expansion and control, murdering state police officers, security forces , army – one of his spectacular blows was when he shot down a helicopter with an RPG (launched by rocket) five years ago.

The group took advantage of a gap in the synthetic drugs market, and it grew as other rivals weakened, such as the Sinaloa cartel of “El Chapo”, which was last arrested in 2015, extradited to the USA and unable to escape. as before, he was tried and, last year, convicted.

But this bold attack in the heart of Mexico City is an escalation.

The President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and the Mayor of the capital, Claudia Sheinbaum, argue that it is proof of the pressure that drug cartels are under.

The Jalisco cartel has been the target of two recent coups. At the beginning of the month, the Spanish daily tells The country, Mexican financial authorities froze almost 2000 accounts linked to the group, after detecting movements of around 20 million pesos, more than 800 thousand euros. And in March, an operation led by US anti-trafficking forces led to the detention in the USA of more than 600 people, the seizure of 20 thousand kilograms of drugs and a further 22 million dollars (19.6 million euros) .

López Obrador took office just over a year and a half ago, promising to pacify Mexico, but the number of homicides increased last year, and the trend showed no signs of abating this year. This attack, says Reuters, was the latest in a series of security breaches that have left doubts about the President’s ability to control gang violence.

Although the perpetrators of the attack managed to escape, several suspects were later arrested, some in neighboring states, including the man who allegedly planned the attack.

Before leading the police in the capital, Omar García Harfuch worked in the investigative police where he was in charge of capturing several important cartel names, such as one of the closest men to “El Chapo”, known as “El Licenciado”. In 2019, Harfuch was moved to the capital, where violence linked to drug groups was beginning to show, and since then his strength has led to several arrests.

The mayor linked the attack to these arrests of members of other drug groups. But much points to Mexico’s most violent and powerful cartel, and the daily The country he also points out that the García Harfuch team passed on information about cartels beyond the capital, including that of Jalisco.

News corrected on 28.6.2020: 20 million Mexican pesos is approximately 800 thousand euros and not 800 million as was wrongly mentioned.
