At a communique, COFEPRIS states that the agency intensifies actions to identify those establishments and suspend or close them to avoid risks to the health of people, since they operate clandestinely, without a health license or certified hygienic measures.

COFEPRIS invited the population to be part of the sanitary surveillance and report any irregular establishment or with similar characteristics, and among the actions to protect patients, the agency increased the verification visits to suspected clinics.

The case of a false clinic “Sanitario Montevideo,” located in Mexico City, which was totally and definitively closed, was highlighted. The note adds that 10 other establishments have been suspended due to irregularities and they are in the process of ruling.

Among the risks detected, it adds, are lack of personnel with academic accreditation for operating rooms, hospital pharmacy or transfusion services, as well as use expired or reused supplies, and damaged structures.
