Nationwide hospitals inspected, following Ploiesti scandal

Minister of Health Eugen Nicolaescu said that all the hospitals in Romania are to be inspected between December 10 and 15 by the Public Health Departments (DSP) and measures plans will be drafted according to the results, to be presented on December 19 in a video-conference, according to realitatea.net. According to Nicolaescu, secretaries of state Raed Arafat and Adrian Pana, as well as the general secretary, who are going to coordinate the entire control activity at the hospitals between December 16 and 19, will draft some plans of measures to evaluate their capacity between December 24, 2013 and January 6, 2014. The measure follows the investigation made by the Ministry of Health at the Emergency County Hospital in Ploiesti, after surgeon Dan Oprea publicly accused underfunding, scanty amounts of drugs and medical supplies in the hospital, and the lack of involvement from authorities who ordered the thermal reconditioning of the hospital at the expense of providing necessary medical supplies. Another control was made at the Oncology Institute in Bucharest following Mediafax report about the unit lacking drugs and medical supplies, according to patients, some of whom were faced on Friday with a crisis situation, as they could not undergo their cytostatic due to the absence of physiologic solution, and the unit ran out of antibiotics, band aids and gauze tissue pads.
