Starting now and throughout the weekend, the guards and various sensitive areas in Hospitals Humberto Notti and Central, will get many blocked services as a result of conflict that maintain workers the health Which provide specific services and overtime under the benefits method.
It happened later Presentation from the Ministry of Health Two days ago, he failed to convince the medical and technical sector. It is worth noting that according to the official announcement, the improvement in payments – which is agreed out of parity each year – is to increase the value of each benefit by 40% for physicians who work for 24 hours and 30 percent paid in two installments for those who bill Linear, that is, from Monday to Friday in areas that are not considered critical.
The truth is that this is far from being there conflictself-assembled professionals and representatives of the Mendoza Association of Health Professionals (Ampros), I decided to continue With a request to remember to transfer these benefits to the category of greater dedication. This means, in general, that the income obtained from overtime, as well as the hours they fulfill in shifts on weekends and Mondays through Fridays, is collected in the form of empty salaries. That is, without having to submit an invoice every month.
In the list of those who receive this part of the fee in this way – which has been applied for at least ten years in the province – there are specialists from critical areas and in which there is precisely a shortage of professionals in connection with the high demand for patients. In total, 96 specialists from Humberto Notti Hospital joined the strike. Neonatology, laboratory, pharmacy, custodial, neurosurgery and hospitalization services will be affected. While in the central intensive care area there are 26 specialists who have joined the dynamometer.
Claudia Iturbe, president of the union, explained that they were received today at the Government House by the Chief of Staff of the Ministry of Health, Roberto Campos, and the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health, Oscar Sagas. The purpose of the meeting of the parties while the claim was confirmed by professionals in the health Under the focus, benefits were specifically required to be included as a larger allocation in the final salary. “They explained to us that the increase was already in place and that they would analyze the greater dedication. They also told us that they would advance the meeting that was scheduled for April 15th to the 6th of this month,” Iturbe emphasized and explained that “the strong action continues until a real response to the request is reached.”
“The benefits must be converted into greater dedication,” Iturbe insisted and explained that the call for Wednesday at the Under Secretary of Labor would be made through a negotiating committee, that is, through the official channels involved in this process.
The Notti, in complete crisis
Luisina Tejada (34) is part of the pediatric oncology team at Humberto Notti Hospital. Since 2016, he has been working in the hospital. First, he attended young patients in the ward area while he was able to complete his residency as an oncologist. And since 2019, he has stayed to integrate staff who specialize in this delicate field of medicine, with the idea of collaborating with the recovery of children with high-risk tumors. She took responsibility under the method of billing for benefits and since July of last year she managed to get a position as a permanent employee, but the fact is that based on the great demand that her work required when solving various issues when he arrived at the hospital (even from neighboring counties) the demands were greater Thus, he needed to work longer hours.
In that long time, she, like dozens of colleagues, collected it by filing the bills. The Children’s Oncology Service (which does not include cases of leukemia) currently has 30 adolescents between the ages of three months and fifteen years.
The reality is far from being an isolated responsibility, as his work depends on the coordination that has been achieved with other major areas that these days have seen his service damaged, and which he warns are linked to conflict which has not yet been resolved with regard to the benefits. “We coordinate a lot with other areas of the hospital, like the lab. This weekend, for example, there won’t be a bacteriology guard to be able to do the cultures. The pharmacy staff, who also provide services, will join in the measure. We’re all called in. subjectively ”, explained the specialist and explained that the professionals and technicians of the hospital struggled for a long time to provide a high-level service; In fact, he asserted, some time ago, that one of the greatest accomplishments in his area was that he was able to include mixing equipment to be able to prepare the medicine children needed for chemotherapy in the same hospital.
Currently, Tejada explained, the Notti Oncology team consists of six specialists, one about to retire, one on leave, and one with six years to retire. “My colleague left Garrahan (Buenos Aires) and when she returned to Notti they offered her benefits. We have hard work because often we have to not only take care of the clinical aspect of patients, but also respond to other needs, such as actions with social works, coordination with other areas, Agreeing on the dates of the interventions and many other problems that arise because each patient has a very different reality and families arrive with many needs, the specialist explained and expressed his gratitude for the support achieved from entities such as Fundavita and Conversion.
To become an oncologist and struggle to save the lives of boys and girls, Luisina literally follows what her heart has always told her. Once she graduated with her degree from the University of Mendoza Medical School, she was able to complete her pediatric residency at Humberto Notti Hospital. Then he continued for another two years with the idea of specializing in the field of oncology. He wanted to investigate the topic of malignant tumors affecting boys and girls. In the hours when he wasn’t in the hospital to save lives, he devoted himself entirely to his two young children. “I’ve always really liked studying and love what I do, I can’t imagine my life doing anything else,” stressed the professional, lamenting the replacements that are permanently made in the system due to low fees. It is important in this hospital if we do not work as a team, then excellence cannot be achieved, but for that, it is necessary to have the work duly recognized.”
