“I can’t go home like this with my daughter. She’s been crying all night, since Sunday, with severe abdominal pain,” reported Mayara Santos da Silva, 26, at the Materno Infantile de Brasilia Hospital in Humboldt yesterday afternoon. I waited, without knowing when it would happen. See, this is the scene of chaos that the Federal District Public Health Network is facing.

For four days, the mother of 4-year-old Raisa Santos had been trying to get a medical examination of the child’s health, but returned home disappointed. “I have already taken her to the UPA in Jardim Ingá (the surrounding area), and the doctor gave her medicine to ease the pain, but she did not get better. So I took her to Hamb. At the screening, they did not touch her and said she was not feeling well, “she complained. O Miles Visited Hospitals and Emergency Care Units (UPAs), and reports of patients waiting for a doctor are like Mayara.

Pain and anger

At the Taguatinga Regional Hospital (HRT), Alain Garcia, 33, is with her grandfather, Joachim Lima, 83, who has been in the hospital since Tuesday. After a domestic accident, the elderly man’s femur broke and he had to be rushed to the unit. But since he came here, he has been the same. They didn’t move it, they didn’t espouse it. The bandage, which was supposed to be on the elbow, ended up on the wrist, “the granddaughter explained. ۔

In addition, Aline denounced the employees, at least not for cleaning up their grandfather. “When we spoke to the staff in the sector, they said that the partner is the one who should clean the patient. But how am I going to do this? I have neither the condition to pick it up nor the technique, especially With a broken femur “, he commented.

Another question from Aline was about medical follow-up or lack thereof. “In the morning, a doctor passed by, who, after an ‘active search,’ would not have been able to locate my grandfather,” he said. The excuse they use is ridiculous, as if everyone is a common man “, insisted the family member, who, angry with the situation, sought support this Thursday (23/6) from the Public Ministry. Decided to refer to (MPDFT). .

Alan was accompanied by a family friend, Lydian Maria, 47. She says it’s frustrating
Rebellion to see the problem – without a solution – up close. “We know how much money (GDF) has, it shouldn’t be like that. It’s humiliating. You feel bad when you see someone like that and you can’t do anything,” Lydian said. Of rebellion

The girl, along with her boyfriend, 25-year-old Joao Victor Dahir, said she had been on a journey since last Friday that seemed to have no end.

In crowded places, absent professionals and lack of equipment to help those arriving at the site, the unit offered Jessica a test to measure only one serum and platelet count. “There’s been a lot of talk today about investing in public health, but we don’t see that. We get to the hospital and can’t care, hospitalization, nothing. If that person has private If there is no money for the hospital, he dies, “he said.

WhatDescribed the scenario found in the units, The Department of Health (SES-DF) responded with a note stating that it currently has a staff of 32,556, of which a total of 5,173 are doctors. “The current administration prefers to hire professionals to reduce the deficit of the public network. From 2019, in addition to the temporary recruitment of 7,756 workers, 3,101 public tenders have been appointed,” the ministry added.

The note also highlighted the difficulties in recruiting new doctors. He added: “Not all people hold the position for which they were appointed, and that is why, in March this year, the Secretariat issued a new public notice giving 230 posts for doctors of various specialties. Presented “. In addition, given Miles The agency asked the HRT patient about the problem, but, by the time this edition closed, he had received no response.

Three questions for …

Maria Fatima de Sousa, Professor of the Faculty of Health Sciences at UNB

What is the real state of public health in DF?

A chaos that was exacerbated by an epidemic. It lacks the political will and courage to assume which model of care and administration DF will implement, so that we can say that we have a SUS that cares about the people, like CF / 88. I have provided it in Article 196.

Why don’t doctors accept positions in government hospitals in the capital?

Because the government does not guarantee working conditions and safety. This question is related to the previous question. If it is not clear how SUS will be managed in all 33 cities, how will health services be managed?

What can be done to change this scenario of chaos?

Assume SUS as a public policy, don’t privatize it. Organize the system into an integrated network, providing it with tools and strategic information. Respecting and appreciating workers; Strengthening social control; And choose managers who are really committed to implementing SUS.

Iges-DF management is also an issue.

The new director-president of the Institute for Strategic Health Management (Iges-DF), Mariella Souza de Jesus, will comply with the decision of the Federal District Court of Auditors (TCDF) and reimburse the company Cepe. Will calculate Shed Lease Food Trade Import and Export in Industry Sector (SIA). The property company has already been notified of the decision, according to the Iges-DF press office.

The leasing business is the centerpiece of Operation Pomona, which was launched on May 31 by prosecutors from the Special Action Group to Combat Organized Crime (Gaeco) of the Federal District and Territorial Public Ministry of Federal Districts and Territories (MPDFT). ۔ It also targets two representatives of the MPCDF’s Public Ministry of Accounts. The agency informed TCDF of the alleged excessive receipt of rent paid for the use of the property where the Iges-DF Logistics and Services Directorate was located.

According to Gaeco’s investigation, Cepe belongs to the merchant Marcelo Proboni, who works in the wholesale trade of fruits and vegetables. The Seventh Criminal Court found and arrested him.

A TCDF audit found that “the leasing process does not meet the legal requirements.” The court’s technical staff noted that the property details had features superior to those of Iges-DF. Also, the rental price does not match the market.

In the representation of the Ministry of Public Accounts and in the application for search and seizure of Operation Pomona, there is still a detail which is considered basic: the property was acquired through Cepe with Pró-DF benefits, 50% discount, in development. Will be used. Program creation of jobs in the economy and wholesale sector. Therefore, there is a misuse of purpose in leasing the property to the government itself.
