A Cuban resident in Las Tunas reported that her grandmother died of medical negligence at the Guillermo Tejas polyclinic in that city.
Roxana Díaz Cruz reported on her Facebook wall that her grandmother died on Tuesday, May 10, and that they did not do the tests she needed due to lack of equipment at the health center.
“How is it possible that in the polyclinic the equipment for making electros does not work? How is it possible that there is only one ambulance in Las Tunas? How is it possible that they let a person die and cannot send the ambulance until they have a diagnosis when do the electro, when it doesn’t work,” he questioned.
The young woman described the health care situation in Cuba as disrespectful.
“Yes, there is money for tourist cars, but there is no money to buy ambulances or medical equipment, and so they fill their mouths saying that this is a medical power,” he said.
Roxana explained that the day her grandmother died, it was already 12:13 at night and the hearse had not yet come to take the body.
“At 12:00 o’clock I made a call to the government command post, but nobody cares about the pain of others. May God have my grandmother in glory, but I also hope there is a change and that things like this continue to happen. God through one day this country has to change, “he concluded.
