One month after the transition of health services to IMSS-Dobrobit in Southern Baja Californiaresidents of the capital of the country welcome the change promoted by the president of the republic, Andres Manuel Lopez Obradoralthough they do not believe that all the problems of the service will be solved.
The people of La Paz stand out among the biggest shortcomings of the current service, the lack of medicines, which is why it takes a long time to provide medical examinations to users, and the lack of doctors and medical staff trained in all hospital centers.
“The lack of medicine and I think that we also need doctors the most, because even where I consult, we don’t have a doctor and the appointments are far away, if one day I feel bad and go to look for a consultation, it takes a long time and when I attend, I don’t even remember why I went”Rosario González pointed out.
Similarly, Luis Moreno commented:
“It is true that there are no medicines and they give you a prescription to fill yourself, but considering our economic situation, it is a bit difficult. There must be more medicine.”he added.
Another of the constant complaints relates to the conditions in which the institutions are located, namely that on several occasions this media has received complaints about the state of affairs in state hospitals, and that after the meteorological events in September, they remained in the records. structural problems that exist in hospitals.
In this whole context, citizens expect tangible latent improvements in health servicesalthough they don’t expect it right away.
“We had to start somewhere because hospital care has never been completely satisfactory for patients. Let’s hope there will be a change, although I doubt it because we have spent a lot of time going through these shortcomings”Rosario González emphasized.
Finally, it should be reminded that on Friday last week the director general Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), Zoé Robledo, announced that 231 million pesos have already been invested in the implementation of the new health program and that in the Southern California entity there are 57 medical units, six hospitals and three specialized centers, which are integrated into the federal program.
