PANAMA CITY.- Santo Tomás Hospital’s doctors wait, today on Thursday, for the decision of the cabinet to determine if the hospital goes to a strike, due to the shortage of inputs of the supplies they work with.
The vice-president of the Association of Medical Specialists, Marcell Penna, said that they hope that the authorities declare the hospital in "alert state".
Penna informed that the strike risk will be keep until their requests are solved, either because authorities allow them doing direct purchases to supply the health center or do those purchases with fewer requirements.
Doctors and authorities still have not met still.
Penna informed that the situation in some areas, as the arrival of inputs to do contrast, have been solved, but the shortage persists in other areas, like radiology.
