Fabiola García defends that Social Policy follows the criteria of professionals and experts

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, May 15. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The BNG has accused the Xunta of “negligently” managing the income in the Residence Complex for the Care of Dependent Persons I in Vigo, which the nationalists believe that the Department of Social Policy has turned into a “Frankenstein center” by mixing dependent people with others who suffer from psychiatric pathologies or alcohol and drug dependencies, which is generating “coexistence problems” and making care difficult for both groups.

This was reported by Bloc deputy Alexandra Fernández during her parliamentary question posed during the plenary session of the Galician Parliament held this Wednesday in response to the Minister of Social Policy, Fabiola García, who defended that the Xunta follows the criteria “of professionals and experts”.

The minister, who has regretted that the BNG intends to “stigmatize” patients by wanting them to be “isolated from conventional centers”, has assured that “the experts” consulted point out that “there are cases of neurological or even organic pathologies that can be confused in many times with psychiatric pathologies due to disorientation, confusion or agitation”.

He has also pointed out in cases of chronic pathologies that they “only” recommend referring to emergency hospital services when “exacerbations” of their conditions occur, which is why he has defended that the criteria of the professionals who decide to admit these people to centers be followed. conventional residential areas like the one in Vigo.

In her turn, the nationalist deputy Alexandra Fernández has stressed that “the core of the problem” is that there is no specific center to which these patients can be referred, so “the solution” for the Xunta is to conceive senior centers as “a mixed bag in which to hide these realities.”

Thus, she has appealed to the councilor’s “empathy” with the elderly people who are in this residence and who deserve “to live in a friendly, calm and well-cared for environment”, which has led her to ask “what are the investment announcements” in new centers “if later their management turns them into Frankenstein centers with profiles of all kinds in which the elderly live in fear.”

In addition, Fernández has also emphasized that this situation has an impact on the workers of the centers, who have started collecting signatures to denounce a management that they consider “inhuman and negligent” and to act as the voice of the users who suffer from a situation “of defenselessness and vulnerability.”

In her last turn, the councilor stressed that there is an action protocol in case of aggression and that the staff of these centers complete training courses for conflict management.
