Yocasta Brugal: Incompetence Recognized

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.

And yet.

Press release:

CAGUAS, PR, September 8, 2011 /Stanford Who's Who/ -- Stanford Who's Who welcomes Yocasta Brugal, MD to the ranks of leading professionals as a result of her exceptional effort in the Education Industry. As President and Dean of the San Juan Bautista School of Medicine, as well as throughout her brilliant professional career, Dr. Brugal has routinely demonstrated the vision, dedication and diligence necessary to be considered among the best. 

HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAfuckthat

I'm a student of this chaotic school and i feel you hit the nail on the forehead on everything so far, it sucks big time for us though :(

Gil C. Schmidt said...

As you know from My earlier post, Mrs. Jenius is in the same boat as the other 270+ students, so this situation is personally painful to Me as well. All of you have been treated badly, far beyond just being lied to and had your dreams pissed on by people who should go to jail for their crass incompetence and for what I believe is criminal negligence. I'm looking to see this end well for students and very very badly for the bullshitters.

Anonymous said...

They now want to pay the students a lawyer to sue the LCME, for what? Everybody knows it is gonna be a lost of time and money, cuz the lost of the accreditation has a name and and last name and everybody knows it. And since they want to pay the students a lawyer, the staff from the school couldn't get paid on the day it was supposed to cuz the school is in a critical situation. Why does the personnel from the school have to pay for the incompetence and negligence of someone who doesn;t care about the school of the hospital? Why???????

Gil C. Schmidt said...

I'd heard about the SJBullshitter's offer to pay a lawyer to represent the students, but I took it to be a slimy crooked move to undermine future lawsuits by the students against the SJB. I have focused primarily on the students (for obvious reasons), but I have mentioned a few times that the employees of the school and the hospital are also paying for the negligence and incompetence of Yocasta Brugal MenDacious and her brain-dead band of primitive apes.

I also heard a rumor that Brugal MenDacious was siphoning funds from the SJB to finance something (hospital, clinic, house, monkey parlor) in her native Dominican Republic. That might be simply hogwash, but from some numbers I've seen, the SJBullshitter's reported having a profit of over $2 million...and yet they can't meet payroll? It's obvious We have not heard all the truth--and We definitely should.

Anonymous said...

The truth is never to be heard cuz nobody takes a step forward or takes action to incriminate these people who have been playing with "federal funds" and taking advantage of the students and its personnel. There are people who kisses YB tail and keep on playing her games no matter who gets hurt or damaged. The best example is this one, admitting students knowing that the accreditation was in jeopardy, for what? Money talks and BS talks. Where is that money now? There are federal funds involved in this and nobody takes action. What the Heck? Is everybody blind? Students, parents, personnel from School and Hospital? What's going on? Will this situation some day be solved for the sake of everybody?

Gil C. Schmidt said...

I hear you, believe Me. This whole situation sucks skunk ass because (A) Brugal and her MenDacious posse are utterly incompetent; (B) There's a steady stream of mounting evidence that they may also have been ripping off the School and its students and (C) The mess is apparently too big to solve in the coming weeks.

Brugal and her MenDacious monkeys should be dragged to court to explain, under oath, what they did and didn't do. The LCME should be dragged into court to provide a grace period of at least one more semester to allow the students time to re-establish their academic and professional careers. THE STUDENTS ARE NOT AT FAULT AND THEY ARE PAYING EVERY BIT OF THIS FUCKING MESS.

And We have to own up to Our own responsibilities, which include becoming proactive in Our search for information, demanding proper services and support and not letting "experts" run anything without consistently questioning their motives and actions.

The LCME admitted the incompetence of YB but why then knowing this, they punish the students? What they should have done is kick her and her faithful and loyal "puppets" out of there immediately and give the students a chance, especially those from 4th year, to graduate with the accreditation. These have been paying for everything she has done and doing cuz this doesn't stop here. Lots of them left everything behind to enter the "accreditated" School and what did they get? Lies, dreams swept away, their loans and personal money from them and their parents ripped off, so many things. I mean, really, why is these people still "managing and administrating"? There is an administrator at the hospital, yeah right, that's a title, but who really runs both, the School and Hospital, we know who it is, first and last name not even worth saying it, cuz it's disgusting. Everyone involved in this situation has to be kicked out, no matter who it is. They have done too many harm and keep on, they don't give a damn. If everybody puts effort and wants their School to be the way it was before all of this happened, get together, unite, no fear, justice must be served and kick their butts out of there for good and hopefully, everything will be much better without those incompetent and greedy people. All of those that think they are invincible, will fall and get hit very, very hard, but the Divine Justice is more powerful than the one from men. There is always a reason for things, this one has one and everyone who is intelligent has seen it.

Gil C. Schmidt said...

Again, I agree with you 100%. But let Me ask something: why are "We" refraining from mentioning who is to blame? In your case, posting Anonymously, there is NO problem in saying "the name." So why not say it? What's the problem We seem to have with calling a spade a spade?

I have been blunt to the point of offensiveness--on purpose--in stating that Yocasta Brugal is a liar. Yes, I'm not a student at the SJB, but My Wife is and for that reason, I feel I have to speak up. And speak up clearly. I have explained why I think--or know--Brugal is MenDacious, but I still can't grok why she and her horde get treated with kid gloves. I could be sued for My remarks, but I won't be, or at least, not successfully: I am right. And though being right means diddly-squat in today's "legal" system, I'm protected for the simple reason that I am MORE right than We know right now.

Your points are valid: the LCME knew the School was in deep shit and dumped the whole crock on the students. But the problem goes beyond the LCME and rests squarely on the dissembling shoulders of Brugal and the staff (including the Trustees) that follow her false lead. The bottom line for the School requires that Brugal and the horde be removed and punished.

Here's a fillip: The School claimed a gross profit of over $2 million, which included revenue from the Hospital, that the SJB neither owns nor operates. Okay, so what happened with that $2 million+? Do those numbers justify bringing in students from foreign medical schools, a move based SOLELY on increasing revenue? Why is the money problem so severe that Brugal and her horde CLEARLY risk loss of accreditation by dumping the Hospital into bankruptcy and by overstraining seriously deficient clinical resources?

There's more to discover here. The finger needs to be pointed and the names named. Let's do it.

Anonymous said...

Why dumping the hospital into a bankruptcy? Because YB doesn't give a damn about the hospital, the employees or the School of Medicine whatsoever. Why no payroll for the employees of the School or Hospital? She doesn't give a damn because she receives a paycheck and a retirement check from serving as a Pathologist at the Forensic Department, and that's all she knows, dealing with dead people not with live, human ones. Hipocrit, no knowledge of how to manage or administer AT ALL. For her and her "puppets" this is the hen with the golden eggs. And still there are people who defend her and give her the reason and she still saids and stands that the bankruptcy of the Hospital is the main cause for the LCME take away the School's accreditation. That is BS and everybody knows that's a big, big, lie. She was the one who took the School to all this, the one and only. She had no right to leave the students hanging as well as she had no right to take away their dreams. All I hope for, sincerely, is that YB and her "puppets" receive what they deserve. All the sufferings and heartbroken students that lost their faith, see the light at the end of the tunnel. Cuz let me tell you, as I know, there have been very good MD's graduated from SJB and there were much more to be graduated that will be excellent physicians no matter what. I really wish I could help in any way, but I am just a lonely soldier in this war. But like they say: "what goes around, comes around" and I hope to see that very soon.

Gil C. Schmidt said...

Valid points, but the Hospital was key to the SJB's clinical resources, so tossing it into bankruptcy made a bad situation (very limited clinical resources) worse. Even "worser": that the LCME found out about it from a prss report, not the SJB. I believe this was merely one of several things the SJBullshitters hid.

That Brugal is getting paid is a given, but no one is actually making her toe any line, except the LCME, who called her out on serious failings. But these were failings mentioned in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Is Brugal's incompetence bullet-proof? Why should it be? Her record is wretched so far: why keep her in charge?

However, note that Brugal MenDacious is NOT going to be at the Nov. 14th Appeal. Can't be there or can't face the Panel? A student representative will be there, but that's because the Court made the Appeal process known; unlike the previous appeal, which the SJBullshitters--and Brugal in particular--kept hidden.

You're not alone in this battle, but more needs to be done, with the LCME to reverse or suspend their decision until at least June 2012 and with the SJBullshitters, Brugal in particular. Keep attacking.

Anonymous said...

There were various alternatives to avoid the bankruptcy of the hospital, but it's always her way or the highway. People who could really administrate the hospital efficiently and take it to another level, but no, I give you the title of Administrator, but you have to do what I say, nothing more than that. Students? who cares about the students, clinical resources for them? who cares. Only the people out of her "circle" are those who care and suffered deeply all the situations they are going thru. The people who really, really worked for the accreditation, who busted themselves and gave more than one hundred percent to obtain that accreditation. Years of hard work, and finally the School receives it, then from one day to another boom the bad news, that YB and her clan knew but nobody else did. Wow, what a shock, for her and her clan, this is incredible...yeah right. Like she said in TV and radio, they didn't give us a chance. Chances were there YB and had the opportunities to let the School be, but you blew it. That bullet-proof vest has so many holes, that some day it will not serve your purposes. The appeal of Nov. 14th, of course she will not be there, she is so affected emotionally that she can't assist, it will be devastating for her. The students deserve a second chance and as long as YB and her clan are there, this will not happen. Students and parents beware, open your eyes, don't let these people fool you again.

Gil C. Schmidt said...

What you're describing is a consistent pattern of mismanagement, based on incompetence and cowardice. And it extends to the Board of Trustees who tolerate, ignore or otherwise tacitly approve of the incompetence and shenanigans.

I've postulated fraud: I'll stand by that. Stupidity and incompetence can explain many things, but this level of crass idiocy has to have a profit motive pushing it.

As for Brugal MenDacious being "affected emotionally," I doubt it, unless she's simply too much a coward to face the mirror the LCME holds up.

Thanks for venting here. There's still much to be done.

Anonymous said...

As heard, on Monday, Nov 14th there will be a hearing concerning the lost of accreditation, will it be here in pr or usa? I don't know. Nothing will come out of that, just giving hope to students and trying to say, Hey, here we are to support you, who? Well the one and only YB and her clan. Why hasn't these people been taken out of there? The Board of Trustees is in favor of the students? Don't think so, but more in favor of YB. It is not an easy process, but it can be done if everybody unites and protests and let the media, the feds and all pr know the abuse and lies than has been coming thru, not only now, but for years and years, and only to the students but to their staff. After more than a month, nothing has been done and the everybody will be affected sooner or later. But if the people don't take action, everything will remain the same or worse and the last one is the more that prevails. Sorry SJ Bautista...

Gil C. Schmidt said...

The Court-orderd new Appeals Panel will rule on the same evidence that the original Report is based on, with only a student rep added to the process (and Brugal won't be there; what an unsurprise). Here's what I see:

1) The SJB facts are still the same (poor clinical resources, declining pass rates, etc.). The new Appeals Panel can ONLY support loss of accreditation because it (the Panel) will bear the weight of "preserving" the LCME's authority on accreditation.

2) The only partial solution is for the Appeals Panel to RECOMMEND probation until June 30, 2012 and for the LCME to negotiate it with the SJBullshitters. If the Appeals Panel forces probation, (as it did for the original SJB accreditation), the LCME loses face. Note that when the SJB "won" in 2007, the LCME CHANGED their procedures to avoid something similar happening again. As to why the LCME would negotiate with the SJBullshitters is to (a) ensure that the SJB will actually TRY to improve; (b) to protect/assuage the students who have the greatest legal power to hurt the LCME and (c) to force whatever changes are possible at the executive level.

Now I know the LCME doesn't give a rat's ass about Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars, but the SJB has become a serious thorn in the garden of med schools: slapping it down to shape it up means forcing heads to roll. Don't ever underestimate the role personal ids can play in "organizational" decisions...

Which brings Me to the SJB Board of Trustees, a marvelous collection of spineless sea cucumbers. Their job is to ensure that the SJB stays on track, legally, ethically, academically and financially. They have failed, and their only actions left are to clean house, i.e., fire Brugal MenDacious and her cabal of fibbing freaks and then resign. That they haven't even stepped forward for anything beyond saying "No" to the Health Secretary's reasonable request for the Status Report shows they lack intelligence, honor and even a semblance of integrity.

Oh, and about that Status Report? Juess who has a copy?

Yes, I wrote "J"uess. Jenius, I am, no?

Anonymous said...

All that I hope for is that the students come out victorious from this cuz it's not fair for them to be paying for something an incompetent leader and her "puppets" did. And yes, I too hope the famous "Board of Trustees" look out for the students and the School. They have the right and power to do what you say, get YB out of the School, including the premises of the Hospital. She says she's not the administrator, but in an article read by many, it seems like she is going to fire employees from the SJBMC on Nov. 30 and have already started to fire employees from SJBMS cuz there is no $$$. Where are the people that really care for the students,the School, the Hospital? That have a full commitment with them? Aren't they able or willing to do something to step forward and say...YB and your "puppets" are out of here...so long, good bye, adios. People these students need help from everybody, they deserve it.

Gil C. Schmidt said...

A link to the article would be very nice...

Has anybody noticed that Judge Gelpi basically paralyzed any attempt at pushing the SJBullshitters off their latrine? It may be inadvertent, but the ruling that called for a new Appeals Panel, based on an irrelevant point (the third person on the Panel was qualified and her vote meant NOTHING anyway) has give Brugal MenDacious wriggle room. It has bought her and her hypocritical horde time to shore up their positions at the students' and employees' expense. The SJBullshitters have not done anything to improve the School's chances of regaining accreditation, except file a lawsuit.

Maybe We should be considering deportation...

Anonymous said...

Well the School got their accreditation back (i heard it's a probation) but at least the students got what they really deserve, justice. It is a shame so many good students left after the bad news received on Oct. 3rd. Today finally they received the good news, but this achievement was not thanks to YB or her "puppets", it was thanks to a brave student who stood up for the rest of them. Also the Academic Dean gave her best (as of what i've heard)to obtain the re-accreditation of the School. Of four people, just two were allowed to speak out. The other two "hello", and that was good cuz if those two people had to speak, it would of been another story, they would of blown everything and the shit would of hit the fan, again. Now I could imagine that the credit for this achievement, would go to you know who, Yocasta Brugal and the dean of clinical science, yeah rite. They went as observers, not as speakers (English?, don't think so); like they say in PR, ingles matao. Two high joyets with no knowledge of English? Unbelievable but true. The question is, will the students trust YB and her "puppets" again? If they are intelligent, I don't think so. Now the next step is...

Gil C. Schmidt said...

As happy as I am for the apparent news (I'll wait for the LCME to announce it on Monday), I hesitate to give that much credit to the student. He did a decent job, but the bottom line (and I was wrong on the outcome, let Me point that out) was that the (second) LCME Appeal Panel sought a stop-gap solution, and how temporary it will be shall be seen Monday.

As for calling the student "brave," what did he have to lose? As far as I know, he isn't even planning on staying at the SJBSOM, so his "bravery" might be better defined as "grand-standing", albeit for a good cause. As much as I want to nail Brugal MenDacious and the other lying liars against the wall--and I do--I also won't sit back and pretend that credit should go where it doesn't. The students--plural--made their voices heard in different ways and the sheer injustice of what the LCME did to them carried plenty of weight. The lawsuits, NOT controlled by the SJBullshitters, also carried plenty of weight. And Let's not forget that the LCME preferred a hush-hush method and this was anything but, as hundreds of voices made themselves heard in a variety of ways.

So yes, I'm happy this situation looks to be coming to a beneficial and just resolution and kudos to a student who carried out his responsibility well. But Let's also keep in mind that the SJBSOM is not out of the swamp the Bullshitters put it in and that over 200 students--minus one who did a good job--are still facing a relapse into chaos.

The next step for those who remain is to ensure that Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars in the administration and the Board of Trustees are replaced by competent and ethical professionals. Here's to making that happen BEFORE the proposed late January 2012 visit.

Thanks for commenting. And Let's make sure the credit for this important change go to the right people, including the student.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you, no doubt. My main concern is that YB and the bullshitters will keep being part of the administration of the School, the Board of Trustees, will they do something? Don't think so. Now YB will be the heroe, like always. Why? Oh well, after all the disaster she and the bullshitters caused, they were "concerned" about the students, about their future and were sorry for the lost of most of them after the mess, yeah rite ($$$). YB and her "puppets" should be replaced (all of them); cuz if not, nothing will change, sooner of later the shit will hit the fan again. Why don't they pay their employees on time? Where is the money that is not supposed to be used for anything else than the payroll? Lawyers, tickets and hotel paid, etc. How long will it take for the people to see that YB and her bullshitters are incompetent and full of crap?

Gil C. Schmidt said...

Well, for one thing, a search for Yocasta Brugal now yields 4 of the top 10 results are from The Jenius , and they are nothing complimentary. (Remember, Google enforces "local" search; your mileage may vary elsewhere.) That's a start, but We need other people to continue to shine a spotlight on the SJBullshitters, with questions like:

1) Why did the School take in AUA students if the finances show a $2.3 million gross profit?

2) What exactly is the management and financial arrangement between the Hospital and the School?

3) Why have the Trustees basically stayed in the background and acted only to block the Status Report, despite the obvious failings of Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars?

4) What exactly is the SJBSOM going to do to get out of probation now that the school's image is tarnished, its finances are suspect, its clinical resources are diminished and its alliances weakened or broken?

5) Why aren't Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars being forced to defend their unethical actions and idiotic inactions, in public?

That's Our job, folks. The sooner We get Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars away from their cozy toilets seats, the better.

Yocasta Brugal makes over 200K a year because she runs the hospital laboratory, she also directs the respiratory therapy department.

Myriam Ramos was the go between that made possible the Antigua connection from which she and Brugal benefited $$$$

If the students do not demand on Monday, during the scheduled assembly that Brugal and Ramos be fired then, there is no hope whatsoever...

Anonymous said...

Dont forget about the students from santo domingo, another $$$$ benefit for who? Not for the school, that is for sure. YB with her lies wanted everyone to know that she was not administrating the Hospital, uhummm. every body know that was a lie, there was a administrator, yes, but you administrate and do what I say, that was the way it worked. She thinks the employees from the school and hospital are stupid. these people know better than that and know what is going on. The students have to step up and not only fire YB and MR, but all of those who have received benefits from the school have a title and dont do shit just kissing YB ass. If students from SJB read this blog guys dont feel intimidated by these people, they are liars and dont care about the school they just care about $$$. when you care about something you work and defend it not do as these people they let the shit hit the fan and then wanted to make up to the students by paying lawyers and trying to avoid lawsuits. these people are a disgrace and unethical they need to get out of the school and the hospital for good.

Gil C. Schmidt said...

It is obvious that Brugal MenDacious is a cancer in the bosom of the SJBSOM and the Hospital. The way to kick her ass out of there is to make it clear that lawsuits will continue and that pressure for her removal will move ahead. A petition to that effect would help, media pressure, more commentary here and openly confronting Brugal and her lying liars, including the Board. What would be unacceptable would be to let this whole morass slide because the School is now on probation.

Rocking the boat has already happened: what's left to determine is how quickly the "captain and crew" of the S.S. JBullishit will get thrown overboard to feed the righteous sharks, which is exactly what they deserve.

Anonymous said...

The time to start is tomorrow at the 12 noon assembly, students, parents and lawyer representatives have to send the message in an unanbiguous style. SJB , Brugal and the Junta are shitting on themselves because they do not have any cash flow to pay and depend on enrollment. DO NOT MATRICULATE UNLESS THE CANCER IS REMOVED!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Oh well I guess the Bullshitters got there way back to SJBSOM. Nobody, students, parents, lawyers, does anything to remove the President and her "puppets" from the school. They just hear the shit she and all of them say and will keep on saying. Believe in them? Oh yeah sure. Who can assure the students that this wont happen again? The meeting of today, more BS, bla bla bla bla from her and everybody that kisses her ass.The students dont step up and fight for what they paid for, honesty, dignity and a good career. they are paying for the benefits of YB and her squad cuz not even there employees get paid on time cuz the payroll money is not there when it has to be. Who says anything about what is going on at the SJBSOM? NOBODY. The shit hits the fan and they keep on cleaning it up but nobody throws the shit right back to them. As long as YB and her squad keep administrating the school, and nobody steps up to get them out the school will always be in bad shape.Is she so intimidating that nobody dares to accuse her and her "puppets" for all the emotional, sicological damages not only to the students but to their parents the employees, etc. for all the bad decisions and very bad administration? This my friend is unbelievable.

Gil C. Schmidt said...

I agree, so what do We do now? My leverage from this pulpit is limited to making My rants high-ranking results in any Google search for "Yocasta Brugal," but even so, I'm still looking for ways to increase that leverage.

The students can do the same, mainly by being VERY vehement about the need for a change at the "top" of the shitheap Brugal Mendacious and her lying liars have created. The media could help, but their ony interest is gossip and scandal, so unless We can tie Brugal to bestialism (there's an image that will haunt Me), their interest peaked long ago.

Suggestion: make the Status Report public. Spread it around with the questions I asked. Add questions that force the need for answers. Share the Report with the Health Department. All this can be done anonymously and the impact will force Brugal MenDacious and her ilk to backpeddle more to cover their tracks. (Believe Me: they have PLENTY of tracks to cover.)

But keep fighting. Until Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars are kicked out, the SJBSOM is a patient with a fatal disease, truly diagnosed.

Anonymous said...

The report is only for "certain persons" cuz I do not have it. In that case, will the dept of health really help the school? I really dont know or if this goes public who will help? What was the meeting all about? Saying the same things over and over again, i dont think the students trust anybody anymore, especially YB and her "puppets" and for i have heard, I have my doubts about myriam ramos who I think is being used by YB so she could cover her ass. As heard YB has been using her for her convenience and she doesnt even notices it and maybe she thinks YB care about the school and students when everybody knows thats not true. who knows, that could be a possibility and maybe YB is telling MR things that are convincing and let her know that she is useful and helpfl to her, yeah rite,,,dont know, just saying. Anyways like said in this blog, YB is not a good asset for the school, the hospital or anywhere else in this planet.

Gil C. Schmidt said...

You're in luck: I posted a link to the Status Report in another of My posts' comment thread. Here it is: http://www.freefilehosting.net/lcmesurveyreportsjbsomapril2011

Feel free to download it and spread it around. Blame Me if you like. It's not like the SJBSOM can fight the truths it contains. Maybe Ramos is being used by Brugal MenDacious; who can wake her up to that? On the other hand, pressure can be brought to bear on Brugal and her lying liars by focusing on what the Status Report says about the School's finances...and the fact that there's no money to pay the staff.

And Let's not forget the Menonita Hospital deal. If it was in the works--thus potentially saving the clinical resources--why wasn't it mentioned? If it's a last-minute deal, who brokered it and why? (No, I don;t thin there's an honest motive behind this deal.)

There's plenty to work with: what's needed is the will to use the tools the SJBullshitters have provided Us to bring them down.

Anonymous said...

One down (hospital) and one to go (school). the deal YB was expecting didnt happen. The Menonita thing I think is a honest deal why? cuz YB will not, and repeat, will not be dealing with the hospital under no circumstances as everybody knows these people dont want her near not even visiting them, bad karma? No, bad administration, incompetence and management did we forget something? oh yes, no more $$$ for her or her puppets thats for sure. next step, the school, this will be harder but I am sure it will happen sooner or later. There is no trust for these people from the students and I think they are right. The thing is how to kick them out? I guess this will come eventually but the sooner the better. Like I said one down one to go. deal or no deal?

Very glad to hear this! Keep the pressure up. Get the Hospital employees involved. They've got years of pent-up frustration that need to be aimed at Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars.

Don't attack only one person (Brugal or her sycophants), attack the administration and especially the Board of Trustees as a whole. I know Chi Chi Rodríguez didn't do any wrong, but he should be replaced because the only way to salvage the SJBSOM is to wipe the slate clean and bring in experts. And no, Brugal Mendacious is not an expert: she's a walking failure that needs to be shoved out the door.

We haven't done enough until her ass and fellow asses are kicked. Hard.

Oh well, here we go again, another year with the same people administrating the SJBSOM. The same hipocrits, the same system, the same old dirty tricks being played just to make believe they care for the students and the School, yeah right. Now there are other people who has taken over the hospital and guess what? Where are the students from SJB? No where to be found. No hospital wants the students cuz of the President, YB, and who is doing the dirty job? Her faithful and loyal Dean, Dr. Mirian Ramos, who doesn't give a damn who she runs over with her hipocrit attitude towards the students and others close to her. As long as she does what YB asks her to do, she will do it without hesitating. Nobody wants to deal with YB whatsoever, why could that be? The ones mentioned before that need to be fired are not the only ones, cuz there are lots of others that could get sent in that same train, why? Very high salaries and work? Very, very poor or none. People who are very very close to YB and the new Dean, Dr. Marquez. And those who have been faithful, loyal, hard working employees and have many years of services at the School,what? No salary raise, no consideration, and no appreciation for their work, thats the way it goes in SJBSOM. To mention some, lets begin with YB secretary and assistant, Dr. Marquez assistant, who in less than two months of being hired, took vacations (believe it or not), and doesnt know a damn of what is supposed to be done, another one is the Registrar, who besides of not being "nice" to the students, does not know where her nose is at. The dean for administration, who doesnt know a damn of human resources or administrating and is the major gossiper of all times. No employee can talk to him of their problems cuz he spits out everything and in less than five minutes the whole school knows everything. The shit is hitting the fan real hard and it seems like nobody has the gutts to stop this situation. unfortunately the people getting affected are the ones who really work and care for the school and i assume are there cuz they need to work not cuz they want to keeping working in this environment. It is a shame.

Okay, you've named some names: Miriam Ramos, a Dr. Márquez... Who else? Use your anonymity to simply name the people who are screwing the SJB students over. It is beyond doubt that they are incompetent and evidence is mounting that they could be engaging in criminal activity (fraud, perjury, others.) Why let them off the hook?

Until the SJBullshitters and their lying liars cabal is tossed out--including the craven cowards and accomplices on the Board--the SJBSOM will never be more than a teetering institution. Step up and fire your shots, folks: let Me worry about making them hit the target with the right ammo.

miriam ramos and brugal are together inmore ways than imagined.the word couple comes to mind. since 2004 give or take a year there have been hundreds of complaints filed against miriam ramos and herbutch club. she was.the head of the pediatrics residency and all of.the.residents turned in their resignation on the ssame day and i was there to see it. for yyears her and the board have been on the shady.side of politics diverting money from the hospital and school into political schemes for personal benefits
