BUENOS AIRES – The board formed by the Argentine Justice to investigate the possible medical negligence in the death of Diego Maradona would have concluded that the performance of the health team was “inadequate, deficient and reckless,” local media reported this Friday.
The resolution of about 70 pages, which will be presented to the Justice this Monday, is published today by the Clarín and La Nación newspapers and the Infobae agency.
According to the versions, the contracted medical team abandoned “the patient’s health status to chance.”
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.
“The actions of the health team in charge that cared for 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 research highlights.
In addition, he affirms that “the signs of life risk 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 former captain and former coach of Argentina died on November 25 in a 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 “deficient medical care.”
