The Tyumen Health Department controls the hospital that refused to help the patient
In a hospital in the Tyumen region, where doctors refused to accept a patient with pulmonary edema due to the end of the work shift, a check was initiated. This was reported to RBC in the regional health department.
They noted that the investigative committee, the Roszdravnadzor, the Federal Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund and the Tyumen Oblast Department of Health carry out a complete check. The hospital in which such an incident occurred, although not related to regional health and is a federal subordination institution, still provides medical assistance in the area of mandatory medical insurance in the region . "Therefore, to the extent of its competence, the department will make every effort to ensure that such cases do not recur, this is unacceptable," the press service said.
The day before, on August 25th, a resident of Tyumen started a severe allergic reaction. He called an ambulance, whose staff gave her an injection and took her to the hospital. However, the medical institution refused to accept it, citing the end of the working day. Subsequently, the patient was taken to another regional hospital. The prosecutor's office was also interested in this case. The supervisory authority stated that it would conduct an audit.
