Medical specialists warn of consequences financial situation Sehos
WILLEMSTAD - The Association of Medical Specialists Curaçao (VMSC) warns that the financial situation of the St. Elisabeth Hospital will bring the quality of care and the purchase of the necessary equipment at risk.
This is according to the chairman of the VMSC Alexander Saleh. Saleh argues that the current situation cannot continue. If something goes wrong the doctor will ultimately be blamed. According to Saleh, the drastic reduction of the budget a few years ago caused the precarious situation.
This was done because according to the government there was a large degree of wastage. Available data and financial scans have drawn wrong conclusions according to the specialists. The measures taken have ensured that there are now ongoing financial flaws.
The only proper way to solve this is, according to the president, therefore, an increase in the budget. “Every few months asking for alms from the Social Insurance Bank (SVB) provides no permanent solution.”
