Incident in an Ufa

Roszdravnadzor will look into the incident in an Ufa city polyclinic in which an elderly woman with her leg in plaster had to crawl upstairs to visit the X-ray room from the first floor to the second floor since no elevator or wheelchair ramp was available in the building.

Local authorities of Roszdravnadzor in the Republic of Bashkortostan jointly with the Prosecutor’s office will inspect Polyclinic No. 1 at Municipal Clinical Hospital No. 13 in Ufa (Republic of Bashkortostan).

The inspection comes as a result of a video footage broadcast in the media showing an elderly woman with a plastered leg crawling on her knees to the second floor in a medical facility.
