Kyriazis: Intimidation and the OKYpY report-Daily reports from relatives
"I know of a case where relatives reported to me that they saw their patient being pushed by a nurse, falling down, hitting his head and finally dying"
Gerontologist dr. was hosted on the front page. Marios Kyriazis, who spoke about the incident with the naked elderly woman in a Cyprus Hospital and also the complaint of OKYpY to the Police about the leak of the photo. In addition, a new incident of ill-treatment of patients was reported.
Initially, he wondered why OKYpY should file a complaint with the Police. "The only reason is for intimidation. It doesn't affect me personally, but they send the message that we shouldn't make complaints about the Hospitals or about the roofs because we will face retaliation."
He added that he was waiting for a call from the Police. "I don't see the benefit of this complaint. What good will it do? Will they convince me not to do it again? They just intimidate us so we don't complain." He added that people are afraid.
Dr. Kyriazis emphasized that it is something that happens regularly. "When they say it's an isolated incident, maybe they mean it's an isolated incident because it's now come to their attention. This happens regularly."
He emphasized that he receives daily messages from relatives who report the miserable situations their people are experiencing. "I'm not saying it's always like that. My job is to focus on the bad cases of hospitalization and patient treatment and see how we can deal with them."
He also said that almost a month has passed and there will still be an investigation. "I know the result because I also saw the example of similar investigations that did not change anything. I know of a case where relatives reported to me that they saw their patient being pushed by a nurse, falling down, hitting his head and finally dying. When an investigation was carried out they said he fell on his own."
Finally, he said that he does not hope that anything dramatic will happen in this case.
