The Spanish Association of Nursing, Emergency, Health and Social Health Technicians (AETESYS) accepts the apologies and rectifications of the Valencian urologist Carlos San Juan, also known for his campaign 'I am older, not an idiot' against the bank, for his statements regarding the new FP1 for health professions proposed by the Ministry of Education.
In a statement to which ABC has had access, the technicians' association explains that "people, in addition to not being idiots, are worthy of the greatest respect." For this reason, he points out that "it hurts us that it could have been used by some unknown interest by other organizations."
However, AETESYS emphasizes that "there is no 150-hour FP1 Vocational Training", as criticized by the old man who rose up against the banks to demand greater personal attention for the elderly in the branches.
San Juan's controversial statements occurred after the III Ibero-American Congress and the XXVIII National Congress of the Spanish Society of Geriatric and Gerontological Nursing, held in Seville, in which "they may have been misinformed, erroneously or intentionally", since currently the FP health technicians "are suffering constant persecution against their growth and professionalism."
In addition, they slip that this controversy is "orchestrated" by some "sectarian" organizations of University Nursing, "which has little to do with reality", where Graduate Nursing, nursing care technicians and other FP health professionals "work together to provide the best care and attention to their patients.
Faced with this situation, the association maintains that "it will not remain impassive in the face of the constant abuse of FP health technicians", health professionals who "are an essential part of the national system."
"This organization was born to recognize the importance of the functions of health technicians and the development of our professional skills, within the health care of our patients", they detail from AETESYS.
Likewise, it maintains that "they will defend the profession" against anyone who "seeks to underestimate the work carried out by FP health technicians." "We ask that organizations and unions have the same respect for health technicians that we have for them, since the most affected will always be the patient," they conclude.
