TAMBOV, May 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev urged to develop the material and technical base of social agencies and to continue the construction of new buildings to solve the problem of queues at the in-patient clinics. “Meanwhile, the requirements of the federal law on safety of buildings and facilities should be observed toughly,” Medvedev said at a meeting devoted to the social services for people. “This concerns new and certainly old facilities,” he said.
“All of us remember those tragedies, which occurred in the regions. I mean Komi in 2009 (a major fire at the home for elderly people – Itar-Tass) and the tragedy in the Krasnodar Territory and the Tula Region. This is absolutely heavy events. Our task is to avoid similar events in the future,” the premier pointed out. “This requires additional resources as well. Let’s discuss what financial resources can be used in this issue. There is a scope of problems and proposals at the same time,” he acknowledged.
“Today about 20,000 people are standing in the queue for treatment at the social clinics. The queue for social services at home is over 35,000 people,” the premier said. “There are some problems, as sanitary rules are not observed far from all social agencies. There are some agencies, which cannot be repaired, and it is just dangerous for health to stay there,” he went on to say. “This situation needs a radical interference and taking of necessary decisions,” Medvedev concluded.
