MOSCOW, October 18 (Itar-Tass) Russian Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova has promised to clarify the situation in respect to the shortage of effective pain relievers reported by a doctor from the Russian Disaster Relief Service in his blog on the Internet.
Around a month ago the doctor on staff of a brigade of the Disaster Relief Center in the Moscow region, reported serious problems confronted by his fellow doctors because of the lack of proper financing. "Doctors summoned to sites of emergencies have to treat seriously injured people practically with analgin because of the absence of effective narcotic pain relievers," the blogger said. After other ambulance doctors of the Moscow region supported the blogger's complaint a broad public outcry followed.
"I promise to clarify the situation, "the health minister told journalists. Nevertheless, Skvortsova reminded of a special federal law which limits licensing medical establishments as well as the use of such strong medicines." The establishments authorized to use such medicines have them in sufficient supply, and they are to take measures of precaution, including guard systems, to keep such medicines safe, " the minister said. The Federal Supervision Service for public health annually monitors the situation at such establishments, Skvortsova added.
