Hospital Arcángeles of Tijuana, was suspended from all activity by the State Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risks of Baja California (COEPRIS BC), derived from the investigation of the death of a patient during a surgery procedure.

When he arrived and toured the facilities, COEPRIS personnel temporarily closed the surgery rooms, hemodialysis, X-rays, and ultrasound, leaving access only to the administrative area to redirect the rest of the patients receiving care at that time.

Areizaga Uribe said that COEPRIS works together with the State Attorney Office (FGE), they are awaiting the results of the patient’s necropsy to determine if there is something to legally pursue, in addition to being able to review the clinical file of the deceased patient and check if the protocols established by Law were carried out during this surgery.
