This country is losing Public Health

William Perez Ramirez, one of the doctors convicted in Granma for alleged negligence, He said after the sentence that “Public Health is lost in this country.”

“Maybe today is the most bitter day of my life…Today, 01/18/24, so many memories come to my mind: the day I started my degree, how much I loved every subject in study program, my first passion for Neurosciences and Neurosurgery, the joy of seeing the progress of each satisfactory result and of course, my greatest love for General Surgery,” the young man began by saying in an extensive post on Facebook.

“In the same way they come, I also saw many years of study and dedication collapse suddenly. I was informed of a punishment of 1 year of house arrest for allegedly negligent acts of use in my profession. Unbelievable!!!!!” he added.

Pérez Ramírez admitted that, although he wished for a favorable decision, the verdict against him did not surprise him. The young man accused those in charge of the investigation of acting with bias against the accused.

“More than 2 years of pure martyrdom, the calls of the Police Unit (2), the threats of those appointed by the Provincial Health Directorate (DPS) in Granma, led by Dr. Ingrid Porto Mate, who said that Incidentally, he always understood , even before starting to investigate, that we were guilty and he acted with all his strength when, in an attempt to achieve the better surgical training, I decided to move to the province of Santiago de Cuba, from where, it is said step, I am eternally grateful,” he said.

Likewise, he described as ironic that after the public rejection caused by the case, the authorities made improvements to the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes hospital in Bayamo.

“It is most ironic that during this period the improvement actions were carried out at the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Hospital (called digital X-ray for years), 99 ambulances were purchased, a new Public Health Law was approved (which you should read but very good, with benefits of course, but where once again we are left without legal protection) and of course, a change in salary if the need to worry of health professionals are UNNECESSARY WORKING CONDITIONS THAT WE DO AND that destroys the poor quality of services. , regardless of the LOVE with which we work,” he lamented.

The young man also criticized a series of irregularities committed during the trial.

“I am very disappointed, yes, angry, I am disgusted with those who represent us (or so they should be)…. I want to believe at one point in my life that there are still people with good behavior, the one José Martí Talks about … I’m sure there is that, but I reject those who are behind all this disaster,” he said.

“Now I suffer from the fact that I graduated as a specialist in General Surgery and cannot practice my profession, or enjoy my success. And then I think: I lost???…but no….we did NOT lose, neither me nor my colleagues. The Public Health of this country lost, they lost many patients that we wanted to help and did not…. Cuba lost,” the emotional text concluded.
