The Public Prosecutor’s Office denounces the Hospital of Medina del Campo for the abuse of a traumatologist to an anaesthetized minor.

The Prosecutor’s Office of Valladolid has denounced the service directors of the Hospital de Medina del Campo for alleged abuse of a girl anesthetized by a traumatologist who died in a traffic accident the same day he was suspended from employment by the public complaint made by 26 hospital workers.

As reported by the public prosecution in a statement, after studying the facts, has sent to the Court Dean of Medina del Campo the actions taken as a result of the communication by the Ministry of Health of the complaint signed by workers in which abuses to women, both in consultation and in the operating room were reported.

For the moment, the investigation has detected possible inappropriate physical contact between the deceased doctor and some women in that hospital, however, the alleged crime has no judicial route, since the alleged perpetrator has already died. However, the Prosecutor’s Office does consider it necessary that the lack of referral to this same Prosecutor’s Office or to the Court of the communication reflected in the system of the hospital itself dated September 30, 2019 in which an alleged abuse of a minor was reported and described, of which the parents of the patient were not informed either, so it has filed a complaint against those responsible for the hospital and directors of services who were aware of such facts, since such inactivity could be constitutive of a crime of omission. As reported, the abuses had been going on for at least two years. After the workers’ complaint, the Board opened a reserved information and the inspector found a complaint made in 2019 through the Sisnot system, the system of notification of incidents without damage in the centers of the Regional Health Service of Castilla y León. This is a computer application from which professionals report incidents anonymously. The notification reaches the managers of the centre where the incident has occurred and solutions are sought so that it does not happen again.

In this case, a nurse reported that while she was with the doctor in the operating room next to an anaesthetized girl, she noticed that her hands were “outside the surgical map” (the uncovered area where the operation takes place) and under the sheet. The worker reported in the text that she was moving in the operating room to “interpose” her body between the hands of the doctor and the little girl. This denunciation is not onlyor had no consequences, is that, as the Prosecutor’s Office points out, the girl’s parents were neither investigated nor informed.

Until last June the 26 workers did not send to the direction of the hospital a letter denouncing “inappropriate touching” and “libidinous” to women by the traumatologist, the matter did not leave the center. A.M.P., a recently retired nurse who worked for 30 years at the Hospital de Medina del Campo, assured this newspaper that she had been a witness.

However, once the case transcended its walls, and the Regional Health Management announced the opening of a reserved information while communicating the complaint to the Prosecutor’s Office, there was a trickle of resignations that began with the managing director of the Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid and Medina Hospital itself, José Manuel Vicente. He was followed in subsequent days the medical director, Laura Gil, the director of nursing, Teresa Sanchez, the head of the area of Traumatology, José Ángel Sanz, and Anesthesia, Juan Carlos Álvarez.

A day before the Board opened the reserved information, the traumatologist alluded to died when the car he was driving collided head-on with a truck on the road to León, at the height of the municipality of Ceinos de Campos.

The investigation of alleged sexual abuse, the resignation of part of the hospital’s management team and the death of the doctor turned the small regional hospital into a pressure cooker. While the complaint was signed by nurses, assistants and orderlies, alleged witnesses to the facts, a second letter in support of the deceased and calling for the presumption of innocence, came to light, this time, was signed by a majority of doctors. They denied the abuses and assured that no one had concealed them.
