Caraqueños exigen a Rodríguez Torres desalojo de invasiones y depuración de cuerpos policiales

ENTORNOINTELIGENTE.COM / Vecinos del norte de Caracas, en especial de Candelaria y Altagracia que cumplen aniversario como parroquias, protestaron ante la sede del Ministerio de Interior Justicia y Paz exigiendo seguridad, desalojo de las más de 120 invasiones que afectan esta zona de Libertador y depuración de los cuerpos de seguridad del estado. Revelaron que Poli Caracas, Policía Nacional Bolivariana y la Guardia del Pueblo cobran vacuna de 600 a 1000 bsf semanales a comerciantes por brindarles protección. Carlos Julio Rojas, coordinador del Frente en Defensa del Norte de Caracas, señaló la necesidad de depurar los cuerpos de seguridad del estado, que en muchos casos están involucrados en hechos delictivos extorsionando a los ciudadanos. "Cuando vemos un Guardia o Policía Nacional no sabemos sin sentirnos protegidos o sentir miedo de ser atracados, 27% de los secuestros están involucrados funcionarios según Tareck El Aissami. Sin dejar de lado el cobró de dinero a comerciantes a cambio de seguridad", dijo. Rojas exigió el desalojo de las invasiones que afectan al norte del municipio Libertador, las cuales son focos de inseguridad, violencia y usados por los malandros como guarida para esconderse de las autoridades. "28 tomas ilegales hay en Candelaria, 37 en El Recreo, 10 San Bernardino y más de 40 entre San José y Altagracia. En estas edificaciones proliferan delitos como atracos, robos, secuestros, tráfico de drogas y homicidios todo bajo la mirada impune del gobierno". El luchador social recordó que solo en Candelaria han sido asesinadas 6 personas en dos meses y más de 20 si se toma en cuenta el norte de Caracas, esto es un reflejo de los altos índices de inseguridad y el nivel de impunidad que vive el país. "Muchas de las invasiones quedan cerca de instituciones del estado como en el caso de la Torre Viasa al lado de la Defensoría del Pueblo o cuatro tomas ilegales cerca del propio Ministerio de Interior justicia y Paz", afirmó. Informó que tal día como hoy Altagracia cumple años como parroquia y en pocos días también Candelaria cumplirá 265 años de su fundación, asegurando que estas han perdido sus atractivos históricos y turísticos siendo recordadas solamente por los hechos de violencia. "Ahora las esquinas de Caracas no destacan por sus historia o cultura sino porque mataron a una persona, atracan mucho o hay cerca una invasión, estamos perdiendo nuestra ciudad". "Las camionetas se han convertido en una guillotina" Por su parte Jorge Camperos, vecino de Altagracia, relató como las Avenidas Urdaneta y Baralt los atracos a las camionetas son el pan de cada día, siendo muy escasa la presencia policial a pesar que muchos de los delitos ocurren a pocos metros del Tribunal Supremo de Justica. "Los malandros paran los autobuses y a punta de pistola nos despojan de todo y huyen en motos sin que un Guardia aparezca, por ejemplo la inseguridad es tan alta que una vecina en menos de un año perdió a su hijo y nieta, quien fuera descuartizada sin que se sepa quienes son los culpables, expresó.

Still no privacy for patients − Medical records at state−run facilities not being secured despite promised changes more than one year ago

Jamaica Gleaner / Tyrone Reid, Senior Staff Reporter More than a year ago, Jamaica's health ministry promised to audit the security procedures at medical records filing rooms at all government−run health facilities.

The pledge was made after a Sunday Gleaner investigation conducted in April 2012, revealed that lax security measures at two of Jamaica's leading hospitals − the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) and the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) − left the confidential medical history of patients open to public access.

However, it appears the review was either not conducted or not done satisfactorily.

Only last week, Health Minister Dr Fenton Ferguson visited the KPH and again ordered "an urgent review of the arrangements surrounding the operation of the medical records section".

Ferguson directed that "a taskforce immediately examine the medical records facility with a view to maximising the use of available space in the short run, while exploring ways to expand the facility in the medium term".

But checks by The Sunday Gleaner indicate that Ferguson would do well to order a similar taskforce to examine the Port Antonio Health Centre, as confidential patient information is available at that facility for anyone to have a read.

Portland trek

A member of our news team recently trekked to Portland, walked into the medical records filing room of the Port Antonio Health Centre and leafed through patient records housed at the facility.

Ironically, a warning on the cover of the patient files makes it clear that not even patients are permitted to handle the highly confidential files.

Most of the patient files are stored in Room 35. The door to the small room housing the medical history of thousands of patients was left open. No one was inside.

A member of our news team was able to enter and exit the room on a number of occasions without any member of staff asking a question.

Medical records are also stored behind the health centre's registration desk.

Our news team also noticed that there were times when the registration area was left unattended as staff moved about in the execution of their duties.

Patient records that should be confidential could have easily been removed. Patient files were also seen on the floor in the registration area.

The investigation also unearthed that medical records were stored in an area that doubles as a lunch room for staff as well as a collection point for food handlers' permits.

During our first stop at the mini lunch room, staff members were seen using a microwave oven that is in proximity to a gas cylinder in the small space which is also used to house hundreds of patient files.

When the investigation was complete, our news team asked to speak with Bentley Steer, parish manager for health services in Portland.

When confronted with the details of our investigation, Steer was unwilling to discuss the issue.

"I am not prepared for any discussion on that today," he said. Our news team continued asking about the security measures instituted to ensure patient files are kept confidential, but Steer would not budge.

By this time, the parish manager started to clear his desk and told our news team that he had to leave.

When told that we possessed video evidence and photographs to show that a member of our news team was able to walk from the street into the medical filing room with no hassle, Steer was still evasive.

"If you did that, then I think that's not good," was all the parish manager offered.

Not good for who? our news team asked. But the parish manager steered clear of the question.

"Sorry, but I have to go … I am not prepared to have any discussion at all on that," said Steer.

Efforts to get a comment from the North East Regional Health Authority (NERHA) were unsuccessful as the health authority did not respond to our questions.

NERHA is an agency of the health ministry that has responsibility for all government−run health facilities in the parishes of St Ann, St Mary and Portland.

Each parish is under the responsibility of a parish manager, who administers the resources involved in the delivery of health services.
