So scary to get ill in Georgia2012-07-11 15:24
In Georgia, many new hospitals were built, and many old were renovated. But not every hospital was supplied with the new equipment. For example, the clinic of the city of Rustavi. And patients are suffering from this, especially those that are in need of urgent assistance.
Family of a resident of Rustavi Levan Makaridze has suffered misfortune. His five-year daughter accidentally drank a solution of sulfuric acid. Fortunately, her parents were nearby, in the next room. Having heard the cry of the child and found out the essence of the case, they quickly got into the car and took the girl to a new, modern hospital.
This winter, the President personally opened the hospital. But it turned out that such medical institutions have only a name now, but cannot work properly. The reform implies the replacement of obsolete equipment with the new, but in the end it turned out that even basic medical care has become impossible.
Returning to the history of a little girl. The parents did their best, sparing nothing to save the child. But the doctors of the new hospital Rustavi refused to help. Imagine the state of the parents, because it concerns the life of his daughter.
Levan Makaridze, the girl's father: "The child was in shock from the pain. This was potent solution, fortunately, she drank a little. The first sip burned her throat and mouth. Having heard the scream, I immediately realized what had happened. I grabbed her and drove to the hospital. I burst into there like a madman, holding a child, explained the medical staff what had happened, begged to save the child. The doctor was very worried. He nearly died of shame, but gave me a totally unexpected answer".
The answer was as follows: the hospital has no equipment or other means for treatment, though, as it turned out, it was necessary to do ordinary lavage. One way or another, the parents began to lose hope for help. They were advised to take the child in Tbilisi.
"I urgently took daughter to Tbilisi. It became more difficult to breathe to her, imagine my state! I thought I would fail to take her to the hospital alive. I was shocked so that I did not even ask where they receive the patients. The first thing that came to mind is to go to the infectious diseases hospital at Saburtalo. But even there I got the same answer, that there were no necessary equipment. They advised me to go to the clinic n.a. Iashvili, where, fortunately, we got treatment", the father said
