Medina aghast in surprise visit to notorious hospital
Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina’s unannounced visit to the notorious Dario Contreras Trauma Hospital turned into an ironic surprise Thursday, when in a tour of the facility saw how patients are treated under conditions of squalor.
Hospital director Dario Mañon said Medina’s first request was to see the patients’ bathrooms, and then visited the various wings.
According Mañon, upon leaving the facility, Medina said the hospital needs to be transformed and remodeled, adding that one room cannot be shared by 10 patients, “it is very outdated.”
The official added that the President also wondered how more patients don’t die given the hospital’s condition.
