The Rural Health Center I located in Renedo de Esgueva (Valladolid) Sunday morning lived one of the most tense episodes in recent years in memory. Two young people came to the facilities because they had an appointment to perform a PCR and find out whether or not they were infected with Covid-19. At this time, the doctor and the nurse on duty received a call and had to go urgently to a home. The wait should not have pleased the two men, of gypsy ethnicity, since upon the arrival of the toilets they received them with insults and threats.
One of them, with a bar in hand, hit hard on one of the doors of the office at the same time that he threw insults at the health workers, who did not hesitate to call the Civil Guard. “In addition to the violence, the anguish to which these two professionals were subjected is very serious. We will not allow it. Zero tolerance for aggressive attitudes“, Said this Tuesday the Minister of Health of the Junta de Castilla y León, Verónica Casado. This “anguish” is one of the reasons why the doctor who suffered the altercation is still on leave, as ABC has learned. “From a psychological point of view, he is not in a position to attend to anyone”, they confirm from Satse.
This same nursing union asks the Board to denounce the aggressors: They know who they are and where they live. Let them go to their house and report them for what they have done ». Satse believes that the doctor and nurse “will not report for fear of what may happen.” The vice president of the Board, Francisco Igea, responded to this on Tuesday. To questions from the media, he explained that “we cannot appear as a public administration, but we will protect them as much as we can.” «These people who have been attacked are the people who were applauded four months ago. Not only aggression is intolerable, but their dedication is questioned these days. Professionals are giving up life and health. If you have any insult or criticism, you come and tell us, “said Igea.
