Patients who fail to seek care in Fern Taguatinga Regional Hospital, which already suffers from overcrowding
Patient seeks medical care in the Emergency Unit (APU) from Fern, banned by the Regional Council of Medicine of the DF

In last Monday (13), the Regional Council of Medicine (CRM) decreed ethical intervention in Emergency Unit (PAU) of the administrative region of Fern. It said the UPA had weaknesses as uneven distribution of physicians, medical quantitatively insufficient to continuity of care on an ongoing basis, and work overload due to the shortage of professionals. According to officials of the unit, part of physicians, usually has two professionals in each specialty - internal medicine and pediatrics.

The closest alternative to residents of the area is the Regional Hospital of Fern. The problem is that the local doctors are also missing. The prediction was that the care of the population were standardized only in the afternoon, as two medical license and are the only professionals available - a surgeon and a pediatrician - took care of only the demands of hospitalization.

The maid Camilla Sales Dantas, 28, is two days ago with symptoms of urinary tract infection. Feel pain in the lower abdomen and noticed a reddish urine. Concerned, a resident of the administrative region of Fern sought the UPA of the city, but could not care. The unit of UPA Fern is the only operating in the Federal District (DF), despite the government's promise of opening 14 in total over 2011.

Also yesterday I could not care because he had no doctor. It hurts a lot, complained that the maid was forced to seek help at a hospital in another city in the District.

The auxiliary cleaning Balbina Nogueira de Oliveira, 44, seeking care for pregnant daughter, since yesterday (15). She had sought help at three hospitals before arriving at the Fern. In all units, the problem was the same: lack of medical attention. My baby daughter is to win, and referral is made by medical prenatal care, who asked to admit. She feels pain and is losing liquid, he said. The initial forecast was that the baby was born in the last six days. But the 17 year old, pregnant with more than 38 weeks, has not yet vacant.

Distant about 20 km from the center of Brasilia, Taguatinga was receiving from the beginning of the week, most of the demand of patients who can not care for Fern. The overcrowding was visible already in the drive door.

The diarist Rita Helena da Conceicao, 48, lives in Fern, but had to seek medical help at the Regional Hospital of Taguatinga because of knee problems. I went to the hospital Fern and sent me here. I went to the UPA too, but there is a doctor. Have the mechanic Valdemir Alves dos Santos, 42, came hurriedly to the scene to take the sister who hurt his leg. I live in Fern, already passed by the UPA, the regional hospital and does not care. I'll try my luck here. Let's see how it goes.

Despite user complaints and findings of the report of the Local Agency Brazil, the Health Secretary of Mexico City said in a statement that "the UPA Fern remain with the service standard for cases of clinical medicine." The department also reported that pediatric cases of medium and high risk are being sent to the Hospital Regional da Asa Sul and the Hospital Regional da Asa Norte. According to the note, "the other cases are not serious or imminent risk, are being advised to seek care at health centers or other hospitals in the network."
