In the emergency room of the city hospital of Kamensk-Uralsky (Sverdlovsk region), a man with broken feet was refused to be given a wheelchair, because of which he was forced to crawl to the doctor’s office. Writes about it “TVNZ” with reference to the man’s wife Alena. According to the woman, the incident occurred on the evening of March 5.
“At the reception at the emergency room, my husband was diagnosed with a closed fracture of two feet. The stroller was given to us, but after the scandal. After I thought about how I would roll my husband back to the car. I went to security and asked to open a separate entrance with a ramp. Without this request, I would have had to bring him down the stairs in a wheelchair, ”she said.
The press service of the Ministry of Health of the Sverdlovsk Region told Kommersant that an investigation is underway into the reports in the media.
The Kommersant hospital said that the wheelchair was provided to the man immediately at the request of his relatives. “He was provided with all primary medical care and was offered hospitalization in a round-the-clock hospital. The patient refused to be transported by ambulance and went to the hospital in a private car. At the time of applying for a wheelchair, the patient was already in the emergency room of the emergency room, accompanied by four relatives,” the institution noted.
The prosecutor’s office of Kamensk-Uralsky also started the check. “In the course of supervisory activities, an assessment will be made on whether the employees of the healthcare institution fulfill the requirements of the law in the provision of medical care,” Kommersant was told in the press service of the supervisory agency.
