The doctors of the Dr. Sótero del Río Hospital They flatly rejected the “whimsical and arbitrary” elimination of patients from waiting lists and demanded that doctor Luis Arteaga be kept in the position of director.who, according to his version, “has not presented his resignation at the request of officials.”

In a statement, the Medical Chapter of the campus indicates that “currently The facts are being investigated in an administrative summary still being processed, not completed. and (the removal of patients) may be controversial or justified.”

“In 2023, a process of reviewing the waiting lists began to update the records. Notably The review of this list is ongoing and any possible errors that may have been made are being evaluated to make any necessary corrections.. This is known to our Health Service, which ordered a summary to clarify these doubts, which was already underway “at the time the facts became known to the press,” the doctors point out.

Regarding the situation of Director Arteaga, they point out: “Unexpectedly, we have witnessed that the Undersecretary of Networks asks the director of our Hospital, Dr. Luis Arteaga Jiménez, to resign, and he is precisely the one who has taken on the challenge of responding to the needs of the population, ordering the management of the list and supervising that everything is in order, correcting all the errors that may always appear.

This statement is given in the context that A report from the Comptroller’s Office revealed that nearly a hundred surgeries were performed on officials and their families in record time, that is, skipping the regular process. Then, a new report from the South Eastern Metropolitan Health Service stated that More than 323 thousand consultations were eliminated from the waiting lists en masse, some without respecting the normwith procedures that were never done.

The report revealed by Reportajes T13 states that the Hospital’s Management and Development Unit requested the Department of Management and Information Technology to issue 323,327 interconsultations at once from a waiting list of 364,912. Of them, 250,543 were discharged in an “automated or massive” manner exclusively for one day: June 7, 2023. The main reasons were that these services had been eliminated from the system because they had already been carried out (92,910), because the patient did not attend (56,213), because there was a typing error (48,609) or because it was duplicated (16,059). However, those explanations did not quite add up.
