Cartoon of the day

Cartoon courtesy of La Nacion.comTranslation:
-So now, which hospital is next?
-Any of them! Anyway, none of them has a fire evacuation plan!


Sad to say that cartoonist Alexei was right on, with this critic of the CCSS (Costa Rica's body in charge of administering the hospitals and clinics of the public sector).
Even after last year's fire at Hospital Calderon Guardia, which left 21 deaths, the CCSS has not come up with a national plan to regulate hospital emergency evacuations.
