The health team in the prison of Campos del Río on the brink of "health collapse" due to the lack of medical personnel and nursing assistant (12/12/2017)

The events took place yesterday in the isolation module when a dangerous prisoner demanded medical assistance when swallowing several batteries and, as the only doctor present at the center to assist him, they began to argue about the medical criteria that had to be applied, which led to in insults to the doctor and a subsequent attempt to give him a headbutt that was not produced by the rapid intervention of the surveillance officers present there.

The situation of abandonment, on the part of the General Secretary of Penitentiary Institutions, that is suffering the sanitary equipment of the prison of Fields of the River takes to that there is only a doctor, of seven that there must be, as well as five auxiliaries, of nine that have to exist.

The response obtained by the General Secretariat of Penitentiary Institutions is that "the situation there is not catastrophic" alluding to the fact that there are other prisons in worse conditions.

The trade union organizations CC.OO., CSIF, UGT and APFP denounce the abandonment that exists, both of the health workers who work there, and of the inmates who are depriving them of a decent healthcare and the incapacity that the Administration is having. by showing that he does not care or wants to resolve everything related to health.

The tensions arising from a chaotic health model where the lack of medical personnel is generating that they can not go through scheduled medical consultation, having to assist the inmate population every day in the form of emergencies leading to this situation two months, specifically from the past October 12 °.

This means that the follow-up of the chronically ill, which amounts to 31% of the current population, can not have an adequate follow-up of their pathologies with the scheduling of trips to the hospital to carry out complementary tests as well as consultations with specialists, since a Only cash only allows inmates to be treated in the form of emergencies, punctually treating what they suffer.

Taking into account that 55% of the inmates of Campos del Río have prescribed a psychiatric medication and that 8.69% of them are seriously mentally ill, it leads to a chaotic panorama that can produce altercations, as yesterday has happened or more serious, and tensions due to the lack of medical personnel as well as nursing assistant.

The Ombudsman has had to remind the Penitentiary Administration that: "the legal duties that must be fulfilled are the duty to organize the services in a way that protects the life and physical integrity, as well as the health benefit to the private persons of freedom, through a sufficient number of professionals, avoiding assigning to some of them the exercise of their functions for those who are not legally authorized. "

The complaints of the inmates for the lack of healthcare to the Prison Surveillance Judge, continue to grow day by day, as reported to us in a meeting held with the union platform last November.
