Two patients from the Emergency County Hospital in Piatra Neamţ had to go to the hospital in Roman, on Saturday evening, to have a CT scan, since there was no doctor on call at the hospital he runs to deal with this .

The manager of the health unit, Alexandru Filimon, claims that there are doctors who do not want to be on guard, but that there are also doctors who have medical exemptions so that they do not have the ability to be on guard.

“At our hospital, from the point of view of the number of doctors, the number required to carry out the activity, both in shifts and on call – unfortunately there are doctors who chose not to be on call at the Neamţ County Hospital, according to the law, and others from the same category, from the same department, who are exempt from duty for medical reasons, I can’t say more.

So we have 3 cases in which there are medical exemptions and one case in which it is not desired to perform guard duty”, stated the manager.

The contracts concluded with doctors from other parts than from the respective hospitals, for the interpretation of the results following the investigations, for the attention of the Court of Accounts. The manager of the Neamţ County Emergency Hospital, about the recent Court of Accounts audit of the health unit: “We filed an appeal to what they filed, we don’t have the final result.”

“This whole discussion actually started from a Court of Accounts Report, we were using outsourced services to interpret these results when we didn’t have our doctors available. The Court of Accounts said that it is a violation, normally if you have your own employee, as in any state institution, you should not use outsourced services.

It is a discussion not only at the Neamţ County Hospital, but throughout the country, especially on the radiology side, when doctors practically make contracts with other hospitals in the area to give interpretations from home, on contracts.

Now we limited the number of interpretations made by the external ones, there were some discussions because we don’t want to have any new damages, because the management team is also responsible for these contracts, both us and the external doctors.

It’s a more complex situation, it’s not just that we don’t have a CT or that we don’t have doctors, it’s a situation that has several angles and everything must be done legally. For example, I assumed together with the steering committee to have these external services even if in the view of the Court of Accounts we should not access them”, said Alexandru Filimon.
