Brief hospital strike delays surgeries there

Surgeries resumed Wendesday afternoon at Hospital México after a brief strike delayed 40 operations, said the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social, the agency that runs the national medical system.

Workers called the strike because the hospital was in arrears with their salaries.

Dónald Fernández, the deputy director of the hospital, said that those involved in the strike promised to speed up their work and that any surgeries that were suspended will be done as soon as possible.

The workers went back to work after they were told that their salaries were on the way.
