    A Stronghold of Medical Power

    A Stronghold of Medical Power / Regina Coyula

    Regina Coyula, Translator: Unstated

    The phrase was spontaneous; Ameijeiras Brothers Hospital is one of the

    last bastions of medical power. My husband is a patient there and I go

    every day. Unlike other hospitals, I don't have to "move there" bringing

    my own bedding, fan, light bulbs, cleaning supplies and of course the

    food; barely a bucket for those who would prefer to bathe in hot water.

    The building is clean and air-conditioned, the rooms have televisions

    and telephones, the staff is friendly, the doctors there seem real

    doctors with long-sleeved coats and ties. The food is not very varied,

    but decent and served in earthenware dishes, not the infamous tin trays.

    The operation isn't the best with regards to the lack of elevators in

    service, serious in a hospital of 25 floors, but this is just a nitpick

    after so many benefits.

    So yes, what should be the norm is the exception. And I'm not talking

    about the television and telephone. Nor even the air conditioning.
