Madeira Medical Centre cares for driver
The driver involved in the tragic accident in Caniço on 17 July, was receiving hospital care again yesterday at a private clinic run by Grupo Luz in Madeira, just a few hours after the Regional Health Service had discharged him.
The driver and his relatives, accompanied by clinical psychologist Nivalda Fernandes, considered that the conditions for returning home were not yet met. They therefore activated the professional insurance that sent him directly from the hospital to the Madeira Medical Centre, which after evaluation will have indicated the hospitalisation.
Using the insurance, the accident victim will continue to receive psychological and medical help in the private sector, although the health authority underlined, in a press release at the time of his discharge that it had already recommended consultations for orthopedics, psychology and psychiatry.
Only the bus guide remains in the hospital, and she is reported to be recovering well.
The Madeira Medical Centre is one of 19 hospitals, clinics and senior residences that constitute the Hospital da Luz network operated by Grupo Luz Saúde. Their most recent acquisition was Clínica de Santa Catarina, which has bee re-branded under their name.
