This is “Chief Lucy”, in charge of the nursing area, who was admitted to intensive care, after presenting respiratory problems.
The news about the state of Health of Lucinda Romero Gálvez, has lowered the spirits of the employees he was in charge of, who accuse that in the hospital There is no medicine, which keeps the head of nurses stable. Therefore, they assure that they are organizing to buy the drug independently.
The boss Lucy has 48 years of experience and 20 years as head of the nursing area of the Hospital Rubén Leñero, from where she did not want to leave her functions despite being part of the vulnerable staff, since she is an elderly woman.

You fall into a kind of resignation and ask for a miracle, you can’t do anything for her, “said one of the nurses, who are part of the Chief’s team.
He added that “this is how the comrades of the hospital, all starting with the lack of protection supplies, if there is one thing I could ask the authorities to do is be human, be responsible and take care of the workers that still remain. We are less and less. “
