Officials force doctors to work better with the help of fines

To improve the quality of health care officials have proposed strict measures. Roszdravnadzor proposes to penalize health workers for every mistake or failure to perform their duties.

"I believe that there is a need to amend the administrative code, according to which, depending on the gravity or the totality of the offences, the health worker should provide for a system of fines and professional limitations. This will allow us to influence the situation. Primarily, these changes have to touch those medical organizations that do not work under the programme of state guarantees - private or departmental. In fact they may not be penalized by anyone. This, in our opinion, unfairly: a system of punishments should be the same for all. But these measures will not work without a responsible attitude of the patient to their health," says the head of the Ministry Mikhail Murashko.

Measures are aimed primarily at doctors from private clinics. In public institutions the doctors are under a multilevel control. Ready 30 documents imposing liability for violation of the rules of care for HIV, tuberculosis and other diseases.
