University Hospital Specialist: Intensive Care in our Hospital is Poor

Specialists at the Medical Center of the Amsterdam Free University (VU) have said that the intensive care department of their hospital gives poor service to patients. If they needed treatment, they would go to another hospital. The specialists speak about “a culture of fear where the advice of medical specialists is not listened to.” They mention two incidents where patients have died. The Inspectorate of Health has also published a critical report about the “exceptionally worrying situation.” In March, a lung patient died. The department has ignored the advice of lung specialists on various occasions.
