Medical suits becoming more common
The Dominican Medical Association (CMD) is assisting more than 250 physicians that have been sued. Former rector of the state university (UASD), psychiatrist Fernando Sánchez Martínez, and general secretary of the Dominican Medical Association (CMD) pediatrician, Mery Hernández, said the suits are causing large levels of stress and anxiety to physicians. Dr. Sanchez and Dr. Hernandez made the observation on El Gobierno de las Mujeres radio talk show on Neon 89.3 FM produced by journalists Rosa Alcántara and Patricia Arache.
The CMD is assisting the physicians due to the high cost of the lawsuits. In many instances, the plaintiffs have hired expert lawyers to represent them in court.
Likewise, Dr. Sanchez said that while the Dominican life expectancy is around 72-73 years, women physicians die earlier because they are subject to intense stress on the job.
