The National Institute of Respiratory Diseases (INER) received this Tuesday the first 10,000 stickers with the faces of 500 health professionals, which will allow them to be recognized by patients who are struggling to overcome the Covid-19 disease
This initiative was led by Luis Wertman, president of the organization ‘Confianza e Impulso Ciudadano AC’ who was accompanied by Jorge Salas Hernández, director of INER. Both gave medical personnel this first package of printed identification supplies, as a donation from the Union of Lithographers of Mexico AC
The INER director reported that since the first positive case of coronavirus was known in Mexico, during these more than eight months of the pandemic, around 1,400 patients have been treated in hospital, 80 percent of them with mechanical ventilation.
“We have been eight months since that first case, which was on February 27, and we have accumulated a great experience in the care of these serious cases that we have been dedicated to.
“The INER has become the great intensive therapy in the country because we have had more than 100 patients at the same time simultaneously, placed on a mechanical ventilator,” he stressed.
In the case of infections to medical personnel, it has been minimal and they have a zero death rate for this same health staff.

For his part, Luis Wertman Zaslav, president of the organization ‘Confianza e Impulso Ciudadano AC’, stressed that this initiative will further humanize the doctor-patient relationship that due to the health safety conditions it is sometimes impossible to identify the treating doctor.
“These already eight months at least that in Mexico we are living with the pandemic has brought tremendous wear on our doctors and patients, just imagining that feeling of not being able to see the doctor or nurse’s face, not having a smile makes recovery becomes longer and more difficult, “he said.
At the ceremony, representatives of the institution’s medical staff, including Norma González Argeta, Head of the Nursing department, “La Jefa”, were given a package with 20 stickers each with a large-size photograph that will be placed on top of everything the safety equipment must wear.
