The Hospital de Clinicas, Federal University of Paraná (HC-UFPR) will be without medical care from January 24. The decision to halt the residents and trainees in ophthalmology was motivated due to the lack of foresight of the return of the surgical activities of the Unit of Ophthalmology Ambulatory Surgical Center. Since 2012, the professionals also claim the hospital board, increasing the number of eye operations and better working conditions.

A letter released on the afternoon of Friday (18), on the site of the Association of Physicians of Paraná (Simepar) and written by resident doctors, says the sad reality of the specialty of Ophthalmology.

As physicians in training in ophthalmology service, we can not sit idly by watching it all happen, a resident outraged mentions in the letter.

The letter also mentions that the physical space of the Ambulatory Surgical Center (CCC) during the year 2012 has been renovated, but it was disabled by the Health Surveillance for failing to meet basic requirements for performing surgeries. But months later, after many conversations Center was renovated again and today works with only one operating room, having no space to serve all patients. Every day without surgery, patients lose a little more of its vision, the doctor says in the letter.

Given the facts, residents and trainees requesting intervention and supervision of the Public Prosecutor, the Regional Council of Medicine, Federal Medical Council, State Commission and National Medical residency and other relevant bodies to this situation that harms all citizens.
