The Ministry of Health told how fast the ambulance arrives at the call
Employees of the Penza ambulance announced an Italian strike.
People need to staff the brigade, raise salaries and create conditions for normal work. Such a situation has developed not only in Penza, but practically in every Russian city.
INCREASE OF SALARY – AT THE EXPENSE OF CANCELLATION OF SUPERVISIONS
The statement of the Penza physicians was received by the local administration on May 27. Nearly 140 medical assistants notified the authorities that they would refuse to work if the team was incomplete, and in specialized ambulances there would not be resuscitation doctors and other narrow specialists.
“Now one medical worker is released on the line instead of two. You leave for the call and you understand that you will not be able to provide full assistance, especially if some extraordinary situations happen, ”says one of the ambulance workers.
The strikers demand an increase in the number of resuscitation teams to at least eight in order for ambulances to reach the patient in 20 minutes in accordance with federal standards. Now, when there are no cars, no doctors, in most cases this is impossible.
Employees are also demanding the return of salary supplements for night shifts – they have been reduced since January 1.
“On the one hand, they raised the salary, on the other – they reduced the nightly and completely abolished the allowance for the experience. For seven years, an 80 percent surcharge is due, and it was removed. As a result, wages not only did not grow, but on the contrary, they fell, ”says Andrei Konoval, co-chairman of the interregional trade union“ Action ”.
In order to optimize healthcare, a regional ambulance was made from the city ambulance station. “Now the city brigades leave for the region: this is 100 kilometers, and more than 100. Since January of this year, we have been charged all surcharges. Every day someone leaves our organization, ”complains medical assistant Lilia Matveyeva.
Only after the scandal had gained all-Russian fame, did the Penza authorities negotiate with the doctors? They promised to partially satisfy their demands, but doctors say they did not abandon the strike, but only suspended it for a while.
PENZA. FURTHER – EVERYWHERE
And this situation is literally across the country. In Tver, the medical strike is only brewing.
“The ambulance driver’s working day is 12 hours, and it lasts one day for health workers. In accordance with the schedule, every 4 hours, the brigade should have a so-called shift shift – the time during which drivers and health workers can rest and have a bite. But in fact, brigades are ever-spending in the car for 8 or even more hours. We think everyone is able to imagine what it is, ”says Alexander Belov, the ambulance station driver at City Hospital No. 1.
He argues that because of the crisis in the ambulance, more and more often tragedies like the one that occurred on the night of March 4-5. Then the 22-year-old girl died from angioedema. Medical teams she did not wait.
Okulovka city is located in the Novgorod region. There is also preparing an Italian strike. Paramedics say that living on 11 thousand a month is almost impossible. They get nothing for working at night and on weekends.
“There the question is already this way: either the wages will still increase, or the city with 10,000 people will be left without emergency. The regional administration does not want to conduct any negotiations, but takes a member of the trade union and sews a case about beatings to which he is not involved, ”the chairman of the independent trade union of medical workers Alliance of Doctors Anastasia Vasilyeva said.
“For ambulance, such a concept was introduced as work intensity. This means that each team should serve as many calls as possible during its shift. The more calls you serve, the more money the insurance fund will transfer to your institution. Such a diaphoretic system undoubtedly damages the quality of medical care provided, ”complain ambulance staff.
Doctors should not only provide first aid to the patient, but also follow the subsequent reaction. It takes time. In conditions when the number of calls is in the first place, rarely one of them does it. And in pursuit of the number of calls served, the health worker can easily miss the patient’s life-threatening diagnosis.
The number of protesters seems to be growing every day. Only from the beginning of the year such actions took place in the Moscow region of Mozhaisk and in Vladivostok. In Chelyabinsk, problems were solved – there, the medical workers, under the threat of a strike, defended holidays.
The question is ripe: the doctors themselves urgently need help. But the leadership of the Ministry of Health prefers not to notice the beginning protests. And the other day, the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation Veronika Skvortsova called the data of the Accounts Chamber on non-fulfillment of the presidential decree on increasing the salaries of middle and junior medical personnel in 50 out of 85 subjects of the country as a mistake.
"This is a mistake that was made when drawing up the report of the Accounts Chamber," she said. The next day Rosstat information appeared. According to this department, the increase in wages in the field of health care in the first place among other industries.
