The Ministry of Health of the Novosibirsk Region explained by bureaucratic confusion the sending home of a patient with tuberculosis and COVID-19, who was not accepted by two local hospitals. This was reported on the website of the government of the Novosibirsk region.

Earlier, a local resident Dmitry Orlov told the publication "NSK 49" that a few months ago he fell ill with tuberculosis. He underwent treatment at a tuberculosis dispensary, then he was transported to the clinic of the Novosibirsk Research Institute of Tuberculosis of the Ministry of Health for an operation - installing a valve in the lung. While awaiting surgery at the institute, he contracted the coronavirus.

After that, Dmitry Orlov was to be transferred to the regional tuberculosis hospital, in which a special department was deployed for patients with tuberculosis with COVID-19. “It turned out that there were no places. The hospitals did not agree on this at all. We were stupidly sent home, given to travel, dropped off at Kalinin Square,” the man said.

According to his wife, the dispensary does not accept Dmitry back, since he has already been discharged from there and all the documents have been transferred to the Research Institute of Tuberculosis. The family lives in a dorm room with common areas, and the spouses share the living space with a retired grandmother and a 10-year-old son. For this reason, Dmitry's wife, who works as a shop assistant, had to rent a separate apartment for her husband so that he could isolate himself. According to his wife, Dmitry is abandoned there to the mercy of fate and does not receive medical assistance. There is no more money for medicines.

Regional departments of the Ministry of Health and Roszdravnadzor have begun inspections. The government said in a statement that the staff of the Research Institute of Tuberculosis and the Novosibirsk Clinical Tuberculosis Hospital "did not coordinate their actions when transferring a patient, which was the reason for the incident."

The Ministry of Health also said that later the tuberculosis hospital approached the man and his relatives and offered hospitalization, but the patient did not appear on the appointed day.

On December 1, it became known that in the hospital for war veterans N2 of the Novosibirsk region, a patient born in 1934, who was being treated for coronavirus, hanged himself. This is the third case of suicide in hospitals in the region since mid-November.

Law enforcement officers are investigating the circumstances of the man's death. Earlier, a special commission was created in the region to deal with such cases.

On November 20, the body of a 59-year-old man was found under the windows of the intensive care unit of the city clinical hospital No. 25. He had bilateral pneumonia and a suspected coronavirus. And on November 25, a 42-year-old man committed suicide in a ward of one of the Novosibirsk hospitals, which accepts patients with COVID-19.

Evidence that the healthcare system of the Russian Federation is working at the limit of its capabilities and is no longer coping with the tasks comes even from Moscow. Moreover, even members of parliament cannot receive medical assistance.

State Duma deputy who could not wait for a doctor, hospitalized with 50% lung damage

First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Health Protection Committee Fedot Tumusov, who recently contracted the coronavirus, spoke about his hospitalization on social networks.

"Dear friends, I am wildly sorry here. I will not pick up the phone and answer SMS for some time. Hospitalized," the parliamentarian wrote on December 2 on his Instagram blog. The deputy added that doctors diagnosed him with 50% of lung damage after computed tomography.

A day earlier, Fedot Tumusov, a native of Yakutia, complained that after the COVID-19 illness he could not wait for a doctor and receive medications."In the morning I made an appointment to call the doctor at home. The doctor did not come. On the second day they said that my last name was not in yesterday's records. They promised that the doctor would come before lunchtime. But he came only in the evening. Prescribed medications. To my question," Why not do you give medicine? "he replied that he ran out," - said Tumusov.

According to him, there are no medicines in pharmacies either. They explained that "all hospitals have been bought up." "And this is in Moscow!" - added Fedot Tumusov indignantly.

He was found to have a coronavirus when a well-meaning deputy decided to voluntarily get vaccinated and prove the safety of a domestic drug against COVID-19. “We are not talking about how to quickly“grab”a healing potion, but so that people are not afraid,” the parliamentarian stressed. However, the test passed was positive.

Earlier, the deputy proposed "to pay attention to the methods and preparations of folk and traditional medicine" in the issue of treatment for COVID-19. At the same time, Tumusov suggested relying on the experience of Tibet and Mongolia. "85% of patients in China were treated with drugs of traditional medicine. In Tibet, Mongolia, there are very few cases. And this is due, among other things, to drugs of traditional medicine," the Russian legislator said. His words were quoted by "Fontanka".

President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov was thinking in the same direction. He called fumigation of harmala, or ordinary burial ground, an effective way to combat coronavirus. According to the head of state, it is thanks to this method of prevention that not a single case of COVID-19 has been officially registered in the country.
