Ekaterina KOPANEVA, “FACTS”
In Zhydachiv, Lviv region there was a scandal over the surgeon of the district hospital that had medical assistance to a veteran of the ATO. It is worth noting that the doctor is now under investigation. Three years ago, he did not notice volvulus 12-year-old child. The boy, who never did an x-ray died. During the investigation of a surgeon, was suspended from work, but recently he suddenly returned to the hospital. And immediately got into a new scandal.
“The husband came to Zhidachevsky the hospital with a wound of the hand. Have got an infection, the hand began to fester and swell, — wrote in Facebook the wife of a veteran of the ATO Dennis Gayda Inna. — At the reception we were sent to the surgeon. We told him that over the weekend the wound began very rapidly and we consulted by phone with the family doctor, what medications to take us to the moment will be able to enter the clinic. To which the surgeon replied that it is nothing we will not do (not “can not”, and it WILL NOT). He said, “Your family doctor for you gets the money. While you are there consulted with her, she drips salary. What do I get?“ I asked if he was going to inspect the wound and received the answer: “Well you have a family doctor. Even though it inspects“. The dialogue ended when I asked what we should do, the surgeon replied: “Do what you want”. This is despite the fact that the reception to the surgeon we recorded in the registry, the family doctor was on vacation and to give a direction could not, and my husband is a disabled veteran and has benefits.”
As a result, the wound, according to ina, was examined by the employee in the public pharmacy, as the district had no one else to turn to.
The post Inna Gayda in Facebook provoked a scandal. Turns out, this surgeon is under investigation and the “FACTS” more than once wrote, for which he is on trial. In June 2017 he helped 12-year-old Roma Knuckle, who was in the hospital with severe abdominal pain. The child had intestinal obstruction, determine the x-ray. But x-ray the boy did not.
— After the son was taken to the hospital, he an hour and a half spent in the waiting room, then finally he was taken to the infectious Department with a diagnosis of food poisoning, — told the “FACTS” the boy’s father Vladimir Fist. — Roma have increased the pressure, the pain did not stop. Now you know: when such symptoms person the first thing you need to take an x-ray to rule out intestinal obstruction. But no one did. The son was injected painkillers, and took a blood test (he showed that the level of leukocytes in the blood were almost twice) and only after four and a half hours and did an ultrasound. After the death of my son, I saw your medical records — it turned out, the technician who conducted the ultrasound, wrote: “too intense flatulence of the gut” — and put three exclamation marks! But this surgeon also did not pay attention.
According to Mr Fist, Roma began to give saline solutions (as in poisoning) and advised Valerian, because he was “too hectic”. Easier child did not. For a while, as he lay in the infectious disease Department came pediatrician, infection disease doctor, neurologist, resuscitator. Examined the boy and two surgeons: for adults and children. But an x-ray of a child none of them never sent. Only by the night (Roma was brought to the hospital at five o’clock) the district, the doctors realized that I can’t help you and in the morning took him to Lviv “OKHMATDYT”. In the path of the Roma several times became bad.
X-ray, which made the regional “OKHMATDYT”, showed a volvulus. Roma was operated on, but it was too late. The next six days he spent in intensive care and died.

Later the Commission of the Lviv regional Department of health came to the conclusion: if the district doctors analyzed all medical records, they would be able to diagnose the disease. Blame the doctors confirmed and forensic examination. Now in the dock two men, 74-year-old infectious disease specialist and a surgeon, who ignored the results of the ultrasound, not sent the child for x-rays.

In October 2019 surgeon according to the court decision was suspended. In his application, the Prosecutor indicated that further work this doctor could harm other patients.
– Since then, every two months the court has handed down a new decision to dismiss the surgeon from work — told the “FACTS” Vladimir Fist. — But on March 27, the expiration of the last resolution expired. And new is not brought — the court hearing did not take place because of the quarantine. Since then, the court transferred eight times! Courts work, but consideration of our business each time is postponed from-for absences of the lawyer of the surgeon. The lawyer is motivated by the fact that he is afraid of the epidemic, is at risk, they say, can’t walk on the court. I could believe it, if not one circumstance: in the courts in other cases he goes, do not fear! June 26 for this reason, by the way, there will be a meeting of the disciplinary Commission of the bar Association in Lviv region. Complaint counsel was filed by the Prosecutor’s office. Constant-attendance of counsel in court, I believe attempts to delay the trial. Now the surgeon is profitable, because, taking advantage of the absence of a new court order, he returned to work. And as you can see, already managed to get into a new scandal. Although after the death of Roma, it was obvious that with this attitude to patients this person should not work in the hospital. I lost my son due to the fact that he was unable to carry out basic diagnostics.
The next meeting for our case to be held on 1 July. It is hoped that this time the lawyer of the surgeon will be present.
Meanwhile, in social networks there and the other reviews about the would-be surgeon. Under the post Inna Gayda their story told Olga Romanets of Lviv region:
“Two years ago, had the “luck” to get to this doctor after the accident. Not only that, I waited two hours, and, having discovered I have a fracture of the humerus, sternum and six ribs, he just… left. I asked about the banality of fixing broken limbs, but got the answer: “even if that’s the guy who brought you in, and makes a bandage”. I had to go to the pharmacy where the woman was a pharmacist helped me to somehow immobilize the hand and lock ribs. Experiencing excruciating pain, I waited six hours until I was able to pick up the husband. And only in Drohobych, where I was the next day at 5 in the morning arrived at the ambulance, I was able to help…”
Recently it became known that last incident with the failure to assist the veteran anti-terrorist operation the surgeon reprimanded. But he continues to work. “FACTS” asked the Director of Zhidachevsky Central district hospital why.
– The validity of the decision about removal of the surgeon from the work expired, and another order of the court was not, — said “FACTS” Director of the hospital Ludmila Aramco. — So he officially began his duties and has since been working. I know about the criminal proceedings, which is now considered in court. But his return to work is perfectly legal.
“FACTS” will monitor developments.
Earlier, the “FACTS” reported that at the end of December 2017, then the doctor Zhidachevskiy district hospital was appointed lostpedia. It happened after the death of Roma’s Fist, which is not 27 Jun 2017. After the scandal in the media of the physician scholarship has stripped, and then he was fired.
Last week, the “FACTS” told about the terrible case in Kirovohrad region, where the doctors refused to do for the mother, caesarean section and she lost a healthy baby.
