«Caffè Scorretto» «“ Stomi ”- already seen – of the island of Ischia” – Il Golfo 24

The term “stoma” comes from the Greek and means “mouth”. It is an opening surgically created on the abdomen to allow the waste water to drain out in the event that, due to a tumor, chronic inflammatory bowel disease or perhaps trauma, it has been necessary to remove part of the bowel or urinary tract. the system. Living with a stoma involves the use of a collection bag attached to the abdomen and for those in this condition, which is mentally and physically exhausting in itself, it is not an easy walk to live an “abnormal” everyday life.

Silvio Carcaterra

Silvio Carcaterra, vice president of APO, confirmed in his comment published last August 25, for the fifty-first time, his personal difficulty and the difficulties of cancer patients when dealing with an often stupid bureaucracy, saving – apparently – the humanity of doctors. welcomed him at the ASL offices in Forio to which he turned because he had run out of his “personal endowment” of extracorporeal envelopes that on paper should have lasted six months. It is clear that this is a circumstance where bureaucracy, word formalism and formalities where sometimes even rules and regulations fall into place should be disintegrated to open up solidarity and the right to care for the sick. To give them a way not to irritate an already difficult condition and to face a tiring situation with dignity as much as possible. The General Directorate of ASL Napoli 2 Nord responded to the appeal of Carcaterra where we understand how important the logic “aimed at the proper management of resources” is a single “shield to defend the efficiency of the system, limiting, as much as possible episodes of abuse and/or waste with public resources by rationalizing spending”. The approach of ASL’s general management is clear, which goes – as repeated in the reply to Carcaterra – to “guarantee subjective well-being while protecting the rights of society”. However, the point is different. Silvio Carcaterra has often written many appeals through which he has raised problems and stimulated the attention of public opinion on health that is often far from the needs of the sick, especially those oncology that in no way detracts from others need a special commitment. Carcaterra’s wishes have always required health , more “human”, less bureaucratized than with different structures and devices such as aims to protect the rights of society and at the same time guarantee the subjective well-being of individuals, which sometimes inadvertently creates a series of obstacles. Surmountable, as happened to Silvio but still obstacles. The “logic of governance” mentioned by ASL management is well understood, but one wonders why the burden of highlighting a “flaw in the system” continues to be attributed to the citizen, to give these reports the opportunity to stimulate – to the aforementioned ASL but the discussion can be extended to other sectors – to do better. In what seems to be a gap between the administration and the citizens, what is missing is that perhaps it would be more correct for the former to foresee the flaws in the system and limit as much as possible to “delegate” this responsibility to those who ask any question (because ” had to do it”).

There is no doubt that we want to eliminate waste of public money, which is more than just and sacred. However, the question is different. That is, what and how can and must be done to improve. That is, how to avoid the complaint along with the risk of seeing it turn into resentment, become a cost to society, and then lead to the resentment of this or that branch of the PA? With the “mouth” in the end, everyone can say what suits them best, but the facts and “how” will always count the one or the other difficulty that it will be possible to deduce if an administration was efficient and closer to the people. This “error” highlighted by Carcaterra, which it is hoped will be addressed also not to leave only the humanity of the operators responsible for violating some (dis)positions or not, as it is clear that it is not only about ASL or its management . The division, partly apparent to some less than others, between different branches of public administration and the people affects all levels. Broadening the speech, it does not exclude the politics expressed and used to “govern” – ultimately all citizens at best – the municipalities. In addition to the merits that Serrara Fontana should be recognized for the initiatives that it intends to launch to make the territory more attractive and open even to an international public, and the disadvantages that affect others to varying degrees, an aspect that must never be forgotten. but on the contrary, it should highlight every administrative activity, it has to do with the criteria of economy, efficiency and effectiveness (or good performance) of the public administration. In summary, the economy shows the need for the administrative action to manifest itself through a rational use of resources that is proportionate to the achievement of the set goals; efficiency, on the other hand, expresses the relationship between goals and results; finally, PA effectiveness (or good performance) represents the relationship between resources and outcomes. The element that immediately stands out is the “goals”. That is, “where do you want to go” and “how”, directly or indirectly refers to a programming activity that is often absent in the administration and politics that are called upon to show the way. And in this already seen “story” another problem arises. Those who ask for (that is, ask for attention to a critical issue), as in the case of Carcaterra, are often framed by politics as a nuisance to be gotten rid of or to be set aside. So ASL did well to respond to him: “Nevertheless, it is right that the channels of dialogue on such demanding topics are always open to share difficulties and choices. In this spirit, the words that appeared in the open letter represent an important stimulus that guides us to encouraging discussions that increasingly underpin our mission. The same thing that citizens would like to hear from politics but only after it has worked or solved a difficulty. Not before.
