Residents of the Serraria Brasil neighborhood, in Feira de Santana, are dissatisfied and have gathered to protest the possibility of closing the Basic Health Unit (UBS) serving residents of the place as well as other neighborhoods in the surrounding areas. The information they have received is that the closure will take place until August 20.
Resident Thamiles da Conceição Freitas complained about the position being closed and asked the municipal government why it had not invested more in the space.
“The gas station is going to close, has an eviction order, for non-payment of rent, which is late. They said they would take the post from here and put it in the Irma Dolce neighborhood. But there are a lot of people, who are old and have mobility issues, how are they going to go there?” “, Asked.
Housewife Nelma Santos said that many doctors are attending the unit, but there is a shortage of materials and medicines for the residents.
They said they would give the station, because it has four months without paying the rent. He asked the owner about the property. There are pediatricians, doctors, nurses, nutritionists here, the service is good, they serve a lot of people. People from other places come to the pediatrician. There was a shortage of medicines, cotton, but if you shut down the situation is getting worse. There are a lot of people here who need it, a lot of old people who can’t go out, and the postal staff has gone to them,” he said.
Resident Mirian Santos praised the service provided by UPS staff and asked for it to be expanded rather than closed down. “My 1 year and 5 month old son takes care of the babies here, we do the planning here, the mail is very helpful. So for us, the situation is going to get worse and we will miss him.”
She also confirmed that some materials are not available, such as cotton, for people looking for a vaccine. Yesterday a colleague of mine came with her husband to get the vaccine, but there was no cotton to use. “
Acorda Cidade production requested further clarification from the primary care reference nurse, Helen Vital, but received no response.
