He General Nursing Council of Spain, which represents the more than 300,000 nurses and nurses who work in Spain, said they feel indignant with one of the last songs of the singer-songwriter Ramón Melendi Espina, artistically known as Melendi, for the mention "vexatious, unworthy and retrograde"of his profession.
Specifically, it's about the song 'Stockholm syndrome', belonging to his new album, in which the singer states in one of his stanzas: "The tramp who is not able to imagine that someone loves him; the daughter of two drunks who could only be a nurse; of the lawyer who, for following the family tradition, abandoned the double bass and now does not leave the bar. "
The first vice president of the General Nursing Council of Spain, Pilar Fernández, said that it is "an unfortunate, unfair, macho and vexative attack against a fundamental profession. "
"To a large extent, thanks to our work, Spain has a health system considered by the World Health Organization As one of the best in the world. In addition, Melendi should know that it is one of the most requested professions and access to the race requires a note of the highest notes", has defended.
In his opinion, talking about the profession in this way is an "irresponsibility" that has "dire consequences for children and young people who follow Melendi, because in your subconscious leaves an image of our erroneous, unfair and sexist "." With such a phrase ¿what concept of nurses is transferred to minors who follow Melendi on their TV show or listen to their music? ", asks Fernández, who sees in this letter a "free vexation."
The vice president of the General Council of Nursing has encouraged Melendi to visit a hospital, a health center, a socio-health residence, a school or any of the centers where "nurses are saving or improving the quality of life of all Spaniards" .
As he has defended, the reality of the profession is "Light years from the retrograde, humiliating and macho concept that Melendi has proven to have."
Likewise, Fernández has recalled the struggle waged by the General Nursing Council of Spain in defense of the image and dignity of this profession and has compared the case of Melendi with that of Jarabe de Palo, who "since knowing personally the work of the nurses "has not stopped helping to value the profession. "Spain needs Jarabe de Palo and not Melendis"he argues.
