This statement, apart from expressing condolences, states that previous investigations were made that are already known to the Regional Health Director; e, indicates that investigations and audits will continue on the processes carried out. However, we are faced with the death of a person; It is a human being who has lost his life, this investigation must be conducted by the public prosecutor’s office, because here is not only talking about the image of the institution, but also because of the apparent inaction of the workers of the Regional Hospital, someone has lost his life. We also hope that there is a communiqué from the institutions such as the Ombudsman’s Office and the Public Prosecutor’s Office. Unfortunately this statement is insufficient considering the seriousness of the events that took place yesterday.
