Sal Island: Public hospital without pediatrician for some time causes popular displeasure

Espargos, March 30 (Inforpress) – The Sal Regional Hospital is without pediatrician for several months, something that has left people, particularly mothers, disappointed with this situation that they call a “sad” reality.

For some time there’s no specialized pediatric care since the only pediatrician, Dr. Miriam from Cuba, left the Sal Island to go live in the United States, the children taken to care in the public hospital are examined by general practitioners.

So far, they think it’s normal, but some people who did not want to have the names revealed in the Inforpress interview understand that the presence of a pediatrician on the island is an “imperative need.”

“I no longer have small children, but it is very complicated to think that a hospital as the Sal, a tourist island, with this population growth … without a pediatric specialist. I think in this country they play too much with serious things, “said a patient.
