A report concludes that Maradona had poor and inadequate medical care

The medical board formed by the Argentine Justice in the framework of the investigation for possible medical negligence in the death of Diego Maradona assured that “the action” of the ‘Pelusa’ health team was “inadequate, deficient and reckless,” according to a report leaked this Friday by local media.

The resolution, of about 70 pages, which will be presented this Monday to Justice, was published by various media such as ‘Clarín’, ‘La Nación’ and ‘Infobae’, among others.

“The treating medical team fully and thoroughly represented the possibility of the fatal outcome with respect to the patient, being absolutely indifferent to that question, not modifying their behaviors and medical / care plan drawn up, maintaining the aforementioned harmful omissions, abandoning ‘to chance’ the health status of the patient, “says the report published by the media.

“The action of the health team in charge of treating Maradona was inadequate, deficient and reckless. Mr. DAM (the initials of Diego Armando Maradona), at least since he was admitted to (the sanatorium) IPENSA, was not in full use their mental faculties, or in a position to make decisions about their health, “the text adds.

In addition, he points out that “the life-threatening signs presented by the patient were ignored” and that Maradona “should have been thoroughly evaluated for his cardiovascular risk and possible heart disease” because he had a “previous history of heart failure.”

The 1986 world champion with Argentina in Mexico died on November 25 in a private neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires and the autopsy determined that he died as a result of “acute lung edema secondary to exacerbated chronic heart failure.” They also discovered a “dilated cardiomyopathy” in his heart.

The Argentine Justice formed a medical board whose function was to analyze whether there was “poor medical care.” Those investigated by the Argentine Justice are the neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, designated as Maradona’s family doctor, the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, the psychologist Carlos Díaz, the doctor Nancy Forlini, the nurse coordinator Mariano Perroni and the nurses Ricardo Almirón and Dahiana Gisela Madrid.
