Petersburg patients undergoing COVID-19, complain about the delay in discharge because of the delay test results

Patients Petersburg hospitals who recover from coronavirus, complaining about the lengthy process of discharge because of the delay test results. Similar stories with the correspondent of “Rosbalt” was shared by several of St. Petersburg.

One of them said that he was in the hospital, despite the fact that he’s cured a few days ago and judging by all, the health is all right. However, the final negative test to wait for a long time — from 3-4 days to a week.

In the regional Rospotrebnadzor, the correspondent of “Rosbalt” the delay with the tests has not commented on and forwarded the question to the health Committee.

“Tests in hospitals makes FBUZ “Center of hygiene and epidemiology” in Defense street. The Committee, he is not subject to this Federal structure,” — said the press service of cosgrave, also refusing to explain such long tests.

the Former head of the Botkin hospital Alexei Yakovlev told the correspondent of “Rosbalt” about the fact that laboratories in hospitals need to do more and not to take the tests to recheck the CPS. Because of this duplication and mistrust delays.

a Similar opinion is shared by head of the St. Petersburg cosgrave in 1996-1997 Alexander Redko.

“I have many times criticized the work of the St. Petersburg Rospotrebnadzor, and believe their work is unsatisfactory in many respects. The situation with the diagnosis — and this applies to both strokes and blood samplings — complex, and the dissatisfaction of citizens is justified. But the problem is that many patients roughly grabbed at hospitals without sufficient grounds and exposed them to the risk of infection. Then you keep them there to hold and may be subject to additional risks. The same applies to recovered patients,” he said.

According to him, the tests with negative indicators people sometimes waitt to three weeks, and this speaks to the incompetence of the organizers.

Earlier, the “Rosbalt” wrote about why we should not conduct self-test for the coronavirus.
