    Default Centro Cardiovascular Dominicano

    My mother was taken from Plaza de la Salud to Centro Cardiovascular Dominicano in an ambulance. I told my sister to take her to Plaza de la Salud in case of an emergency because I taught it was the best equipped hospital.
    My mother has a defribilator implanted, therefore she cannot be taken to any hospital. She is in intensive care.
    My concern is:
    Was this the best move? or
    Was she relocated because they think the bill at Plaza de la Salud will be too high for us to pay?
    Is Centro Cardiovascular Dominicano better equipped than Plaza de la Salud in terms of heart conditions?
    This is a wait situation. My mother in intensive care. My sister in the intense care waiting room but she cannot see my mother nor go to my other family members in the general waiting area because she will not be allowed back in.
    I think I am going to the ER myself. Any opinion, please. Thank you.

    What does the Cardiologist say? and who is he. The best equiped is CEDIMAT, or probably Corazon's Unidos. know nothing about Centro Cardiovascular Dominicano

    You should ask the doctors at the hospital where your mother is. That is the only place you will get credible answers to your questions. And, yes, I think you should go there and talk with the doctors yourself.

    cuas, after posting my first response I did a Google search. What I found sounds like the hospital may be a good place for your mother to be, as it specializes in the sort of care your mother seems to need.

    Bob, thanks for translating the article I posted. I realized during the night I should have done that, rather than assumed the readers can read Spanish and was planning to make the translation now. Happy to find you had already done so.
