Happy Birthday, Mrs. Jenius!!
My previous post was about the loss of accreditation of the San Juan Bautista School of Medicine, """run""""(into the ground) by one Yocasta Brugal.
Now I know she has fellow guilty parties, but the fundamental lesson of leadership is that whoever's at the top is responsible, so that's what applies here.
It's been 10 days since the SJB was told about its humiliating and devastating loss. And what has the SJB done in those 10 ays, with 270+ students and hundreds of employees facing horribly uncertain futures?
Jack shit. Or in terms Brugal can understand: Pero mira que ni mierda han hecho.
The SJB's response to all this has been: "Wait because something will be done." Ten days. Not a fucking thing has been done. Let's lay out some proof:
An April 15th article in NotiCel, written by Omaya Sosa Pascual, is based on an interview with Dr. Luis Clas, the fired SJB Hospital Director. It has the following opening line: Desde la quiebra hasta la amenaza de pérdida de acreditación...
From bankruptcy to the threat of loss of accreditation... He most likely meant the hospital, but if he meant the School, it's another deal. But as you shall see, if the Hospital were to lose its accreditation--and it was already in serious deficiencies--then the School was also in trouble.
April 15th, 2011. It was not a secret. Brugal and her people lied. Over and over.
Article written by Damaris Vega Cotto in El Nuevo Periódico de Caguas, dated May 31, 2011. Brugal is asked if the hospital's precarious situation places the School in jeopardy. Her response: that the hospital was used as "a workshop" for third and fourth year students and that "it would be a shame to lose it."
The situation vis á vis the Hospital and the School was patently evident.
Again, from Omaya Sosa Pascual's productive keyboard, a NotiCel article dated March 29th, wherein Brugal points out that the School was about to inaugurate two new programs in August 2011 (Nursing and Public Health Administration) that "depended on the institution (the Hospital) keeping its accreditation." The Hospital lost it...on April 14th. I bet the LCME thought that was not up to snuff...
Going back a bit, the Hospital fired its Director and filed for bankruptcy on March 18th, claiming $35 million in debt, $21 million of that owed to the Power Authority.
Since 2009, the Hospital had been a hotbed of controversy as paychecks for most or even all personnel were routinely skipped. This was the primary "clinical resource" the SJB counted on, an already-indicated vital piece of the accreditation process...and they couldn't manage it to within a mile of "competent."
Why has Brugal been elusive and thus silent for these past 10 days? Because the LCME's Report makes it very clear that she and her dimwit distaff dog pound directorate were negligent and incompetent. If they want to prove Me wrong--and good fucking luck with that--all they need to do is release the Report.
But I know--and they certainly know--that I am 100% right: Brugal and her pack fucked up.
