Yocasta Brugal: Fire Her Now

In a surprising development, the Liaison Commission on Medical Education (LCME) reversed the San Juan Bautista School of Medicine's loss of accreditation (Public Announcement, 18 November, 2011). The SJBSOM is now under probation, pending a visit by the LCME in late January/early February 2012. The good news: The students, including Mrs. Jenius, can continue or complete their studies under accreditation, a huge academic and professional difference. The bad news: I was wrong about the possibility of a reversal, but I can take that because the right decision was made and I have been right about everything else.

Which brings Us to worst news: Yocasta Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars are still at the head of the SJBullshitters. And the possibility that they will get kicked out on their fat asses anytime soon seems remote. My guess is that they won't be kicked out before the LCME visit and I would LOVE to be wrong about that.

But I won't be.

The reasons to kick these incompetent lumps of uselessness out are legion, and many of them have been detailed in previous Jenius posts and the comments. (Check out "Yocanda Brugal: Incompetence Recognized" for a lengthy comment thread.) There are plenty of reasons, in truth, a veritable excess of plenty of reasons why Brugal MenDacious and her ilk have to go. The disease is diagnosed, the remedy is obvious and has proven quite often to be the successful cure for the disease. But the will to act is missing. And without the will, the action doesn't exist.

The will can only come from two collective minds: the Board of Trustees, a gang of monkeys with the total integrity of a frog's cloaca. Their interests--based on their inaction so far--seem to be deeply intertwined with that of Brugal MenDacious and the lying liars, so the incentive to dump their partner/ally/crony/shield/protector/benefactor is virtually nil.

The second group is composed of the students. If the students raise their voices in clear objections to giving the S.S.JBullshitters back to the captain and crew that piloted the leaky vessel into rocks, eventually that captain and crew will be replaced. Staying silent, acquiescing, granting approval by simply continuing with business as usual will doom the SJBSOM to lose its accreditation in 2o12. And this time, it will be for a very long time. I have absolutely no doubt on that point.

A comment on the post linked above called for the students to refuse to register for classes until Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars leave. Good start. But more needs to be done. There are three flanks to attack:

1) Revenue: Why is the SJBSOM begging for scraps from Antigua and the Dominican Republic?

2) Federal grant funding: Why is the SJBSOM so utterly useless in securing funding that nearly every other private medical school receives in bulk?

3) Clinical services: In a nation with a huge population density and complex widespread health problems, why can't the SJBSOM develop alliances and programs strong enough to secure accreditation?

Here's the crux of the matter: the SJBSOM is a miserable failure as a healthcare resource, and its recent actions prove it is also a miserable failure as a school. For the students, some 30-40 of whom have already chosen to leave, the battle must be seen as more than "getting Mine now": it has to be seen as "getting better for all Our sakes."

The chance to turn the SJBSOM from a pigsty run by retarded barnyard rejects into a worthy institution has to be won now...for if it isn't, if the animal farm is allowed to continue its manure-dumping ways, then the SJBSOM will quickly become shuttered, ignored by everyone as it closes its doors.

At that point, it would be very much like locking the door after the horse is gone, so why don't We focus on kicking the horses' asses out first and then making sure the barn is run by competent people?


The Jenius Has Spoken.

If students do not press for inmediate change, the LCME secretariat, fully aware of the Executive Board's decision to permit the same liars and incompetents to chart the destiny of the school, will not hesitate to again withdraw as early as April 2012, SJB's probationary accreditation, and then everything is lost at the very end of the year for everyone!

I agree, but I think the withdrawal of accreditation will be set for June 2012 to give the currently-affected students time to finish the academic year and move elsewhere if they choose. The LCME will not take another chance at being reversed by the SJBSOM, for Let's face it, their authority has taken 3 accreditation reversals from Puerto Rico medical schools: another one would be intolerable to them.

But let Me ask: will firing Brugal MenDacious make a true difference? To wit: will it secure the SJBSOM's accreditation future?

No. But it will make the SJBSOM's present AND future brighter. No doubt. Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars have undermined and riddled the School with their incompetence and greed. Like a patient exposed to to a harmful substance, the first step in treatment is to remove the harmful substance.

Brugal has to be fired. The Board of Compromised Clods won't do it: only students can. They'll need allies, but the fight has to waged now and every day until Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars are fired.

If the students dont do anything and the board either will she be fired? dont think so. First the students must get united as well as their parents to do such a thing. but she keeps on justifying herself for what happened with the school's accreditation on oct. and the thing is the students and everybody else keep on believing the BS she talks like they say money talks and bullshit walks. For how long with they tolerate and believe this? Are you guys living in fantasy island or what? Action needs to be taken not in a month or two but Immediately! are these people afraid of YB or too intimidated by her they dont care what else she does? well they should care and fight for what is right and not wrong. I agree with you YB and her puppets need to get out of there cuz if not the school will end up like the hospital. Beware!!!

Right now the school is near bankruptcy if it cannot make up for the lost revenues in students in LOA, and withdrawls. Denial is a powerful defense mechanism so it seems, YOU WERE WARNED...

I'm with you. NOT registering now until Brugal MenDacious and her lying liars are dumped on their fat asses is the strongest protest available now. Simple reason: there is NO WAY that the SJBullshitters can guarantee that accreditation will last through June 2012. Furthermore, a decision to that effect won't take place until mid- to late February, when trying to transfer (when accreditation is lost) would be nearly impossible to achieve by September 2012.

The SJBullshitters are weaker than they appear. Hammer the School's finances and dig deeper into what the Hospital situation is. The School is not even paying some of its personnel...but guess who's still collecting a paycheck? And the excuse that paying the lawyers now is what has caused the financial crisis is TOTAL bullshit: Brugal MenDacious KNEW since June 2011 that the School was in deep trouble and that there would be a financial cost to save it. To claim now that this expense is something of an "unanticipated burden" is the verbal diarrhea of a feeble-minded and morally-vacuous waste of space.

Deny the SJBullshitters the money they need to continue steering this ship into calamity and sinking it for you to drown...because they already have lifeboats you'll never know about.
