The staff of the hospital in Ufa turned to Putin with a collective video message
Doctors of the Republican Clinical Hospital named after Kuvatov in Ufa recorded a video message to the president Vladimir Putin with a complaint about the hospital’s management, working and living conditions after the hospital was closed for the quarantine, as well as they asked for help to save their jobs.
The video message is addressed also to the prime minister Mikhail Mishustin, prosecutor General Igor Krasnov, chairman of the RF IC Alexander Bastrykin and health minister Mikhail Murashko, writes ProUfu.ru.
In their video message, doctors explained that in the fall of 2019, the new management of the hospital forced many experienced doctors to leave, who could not work in conditions in which the treatment of patients ceased to be a priority.
“I’m the head of the still existing department. Since the end of October last year, the Republican Clinical Hospital suffered a great misfortune. A team came in which is trying to destroy everything that has been created over the years,” the head of the purulent surgery department of the Clinical Hospital named after G. G. Kuvatova Vadim Dorofeev.
Hospital staff recalled how, on April 6, this largest medical facility was quarantined without warning and asked to pay attention to its desperate situation, which became the last straw.
“Quarantine was announced at the height of the working day. All employees remained at the workplace, and even those who worked the shift that day. The RCH became a hotbed of infection spreading throughout the republic. For two weeks, the staff remaining in the hospital were in difficult inhuman living conditions. Without normal means of protection, without the ability to wash, sometimes without sleep, ”the statement says.
“There were no conditions for sleeping and resting, I slept in the dining room on a chair. I did not receive preventive treatment. On the 16th, she felt worse. On the 17th, a CT scan was performed, where bilateral pneumonia was detected, ”said one of the hospital’s employees.
“Help us to preserve our life and health. Save our home hospital and our workplaces. Although many of us have already been ill, we are ready to continue working,” say Ufa doctors.
According to them, the hospital’s management may conceal the true test results, since many doctors are hospitalized with a large number of complications, but the coronavirus was not officially found in them.
“We demand an open and honest investigation by the federal government. We appeal to you, do not let the test results and CT scan be hidden. We do not believe the results produced by the laboratory controlled by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus. As evidenced by the testimony of most colleagues who came healthy on duty. And now they are gone, or hospitalized in other hospitals with many complications, while they have negative results. I believe that these results are false in nature to hide the true picture of the situation, ”the doctors said in their appeal to the authorities.
The Republican Clinical Hospital named after Kuvatov was quarantined in early April after the coronavirus was confirmed in the deceased patient. After testing hospital staff and patients, coronavirus was detected in 170 people. Reported about the unauthorized withdrawal from the medical facility of seven employees after the announcement of its closure in quarantine, later they were forcibly returned. In addition to the Republican Clinical Hospital, another 10 hospitals were closed for quarantine in Bashkiria.
