After receiving information about poor conditions and lack of infrastructure at the Municipal Hospital of Mercy, north of state capital, the Regional Council of Medicine of the State of Rio de Janeiro (CREMERJ) in the survey unit, found numerous irregularities in different sectors of hospital.

The report, released today (27) by the medical commission of the agency, says that after the closure of the eye care industry in 2009 decreased by 25% of total surgeries in the hospital, all concentrated in one surgical center, which has four rooms. There 180 surgeries were performed per month and date, however, the total surgical procedures is only 60.

According to CREMERJ counselor, pediatrician, Sydney Ferreira, who accompanied the inspection, the situation is precarious in the medical unit due to lack of human resources and professionals from different medical specialties. Insufficient materials, equipment, surgical instruments, lack pediatricians, medical ICU [intensive care unit] and the coronary care unit, said.

According to Ferreira, the medical unit concluded that the surgical center should be closed until the steps to reverse the situation are taken by management. On site, we found several problems such as lack of pacemakers and surgical instruments, which generally are offered by professionals.

The counselor said that the only room of the surgical center in operation presents irregularities. The surgical center is your malfunction. Surgical clamps are old, light sources that do not work, poor lighting. Finally, a series of questions that need to be resolved so as not to endanger the lives of patients, he said.

Sydney Ferreira, who has worked in the unit, said that the hospital board back to be operated by the federal government. He said the unit, which was and is under municipal responsibility of the city of Rio, needs to better serve their patients. How is a teaching hospital, the doctors claim that the Ministry of Health and the MEC [Ministry of Education] again pick up the hospital board. The CREMERJ fully supports. Our fight is for an excellent service, good service that has always been done at that hospital. What we want is to put the hospital to work. We are against the closure of any bed, any unit, said.

According to the counselor, the hospital, which lacks its own ambulance, it registers its technical direction in CREMERJ since October 2011, against resolution of the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM). Also according Ferreira, the intensive care unit (ICU) is no medical leadership for eight months and the lack of physicians is critical. The commission also found problems in the pharmacy with the lack of medicines, because many are near the end of expiration and end up being discarded.

Sought by the report of the Agency Brazil, the Municipal Health and Civil Defense said through a statement that will only decide after receiving the report of CREMERJ, which was also sent to the State Prosecutor. The Ministries of Health and Education will also be reported, because it is a medical teaching unit.
