Crimean doctors said they did not receive a surcharge for working with covid-19 patients
An internal investigation will be conducted due to the appearance of a video message from Kerch ambulance workers who stated that they did not receive the promised payments for working with the coronavirus patients.
The corresponding order was given by the head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov, reports "Interfax".
- Let's take a look at the details. According to Kerch - schedule an official investigation against the head of the ambulance station of the center for disaster medicine. Why was the public appeal allowed? This means that the leader there, excuse me, doesn’t do a damn thing, ”Aksyonov said at a meeting of the regional operational headquarters for coronavirus.
This is a video message posted on Facebook by municipal deputy Konstantin Yermanov. Doctors said that out of 324 employees of the city ambulance station, only 15 employees received surcharges, moreover, in a "strange way." The deputy, referring to the data of his own sources, said that a similar situation is developing not only in Kerch, but throughout the Crimea.
According to Aksenov, it is necessary to find out how the station manager reacted to the indignation of the employees and to whom he later addressed this problem.
“Very tough” is necessary to punish those who ignored the ambulance’s appeal, the head of the region said. He noted that the punishment may be dismissal under the article on the loss of confidence. Aksenov promised to revise the norms and approaches if the incorrect calculation of federal and regional surcharges is confirmed.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea Elena Romanova, the Minister of Health of the region and the head of the regional center for disaster medicine has already left for Kerch.
Recall, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that health workers working with coronavirus patients and who are at high risk will be set to federal additional payments for three months, starting in April. Such an additional payment will amount to 80 thousand rubles per month for doctors who work directly with patients with coronavirus, 50 thousand rubles for nurses, and 25 thousand rubles for nurses. Emergency doctors will receive a payment of 50 thousand rubles a month, and paramedics, nurses and drivers of car crews - 25 thousand rubles.
