SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Sep 14 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Deputy of the Common, Rafael Yanes, said this Tuesday that the body of inspectors of centers for the elderly in the Canary Islands, made up of five people, is “insufficient”, so he has asked for a specific plan equipped with more personnel and sanctions that have been supported by all groups.
In a debate in the parliamentary committee on the extraordinary report on the state of residences on the islands, he pointed out that the Canary Islands have one inspector for every 46 centers when in other autonomous communities, such as Murcia, Cantabria or La Rioja, there is one inspector for each five and seven centers, respectively.
Yanes has insisted that the report is a “reflection” for the negotiation of regional budgets and specified that although it affects a “minority” – the report assesses 25 centers of the 230 in the archipelago – it is “unacceptable” that bed bugs, rodents or cockroaches have been detected. It is a minority, but it is necessary to look for it, has indicated.
