ESTUPINAN RODRIGUEZ, Norge; VECINO MADRUGA, Lisandra; GALLARDO SARMIENTO, Abel  y  RODRIGUEZ HERNANDEZ, Eldalina. Analysis of the preparation of the first intention assistance certificates of the injured party. Matanzas 2015. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 2020, vol.37, n.2, pp.83-92. ISSN 2215-5287.

Among the most important medical legal actions in the crime of injuries is the first intention assistance of the injured party with the corresponding initial medical certification. The preparation in Cuba of the certificate of first intention assistance of an injured person is far from being adequate, proven by various works by national and foreign authors. The objective of this research is to analyze the preparation of certificates of this type, carried out in the municipality of Matanzas, Cuba, in 2015, for which variables such as the anatomical description of the injuries and the medical-legal prognosis were used. . For the analysis of the results, statistical methods such as percentage values and frequency tables were used. The results obtained yielded as conclusions that the ignorance of the classification of injuries according to the penal code, the difficulties in the anatomical description and in the legal medical prognosis of the injuries constitute the main deficiencies detected.
