Ukrainian doctors declare their readiness to leave the country: "It is impossible to live on this salary"


The health care system of Ukraine is not in the best shape after several reforms, and the COVID-19 pandemic could simply destroy it. This is reported by the Ukrainian edition "Observer", citing complaints from doctors who are ready to leave the country because of the unbearable working conditions.


Over the past few years, there has been an outflow of Ukrainian medical workers abroad. The authorities regularly “optimized” doctors and nurses, as well as the institutions themselves. This suggests that the problem is not in the coronavirus, since specialists are leaving for places where the infection is also rampant.

Over the past years, a shortage of personnel has been accumulating in Ukrainian hospitals and employees had to work harder, and the salary did not have time to grow up with the prices in stores. During the pandemic, all the accumulated problems spilled out and those who for years squeezed doctors out of Ukraine, now in chorus accuse them of lack of "patriotism."

Yulia Vitkovskaya, a nurse at the hospital №4 from Sumy, said that she now receives only 5 thousand hryvnias. per month. Until December 2020, the Ministry of Health made an additional payment of 2 thousand UAH. and for the total amount it was possible to somehow exist, and now everything will become much more complicated.

It is impossible to live on this salary. I've been living in hell for twenty years

- said Vitkovskaya.

It should be noted that Ukrainian doctors are increasingly publishing various videos and appeals on social networks, in which they talk about their salaries, working conditions and the constant search for a part-time job.

In turn, the head of the All-Ukrainian Medical Society, Konstantin Naduty, explained that the situation among doctors is no better than that of nurses. It's just that a certain number of specialists have “income from patients”.

You see that some doctors use Lexus cars with such income. And the chief doctor sees it. Therefore, they are doing well. I will say this, doctors aged 45+ will not leave for Poland. They have already somehow arranged everything here. But young specialists are leaving. Moreover, twice as many doctors quit than get a job. And half of those who quit are already looking for work abroad. Because going to work in a private clinic now because of the insolvency of the population is also not very profitable

- explained Puffy.

Currently, only those doctors who work in hospitals and departments where people are infected with COVID-19 are surviving. There is also a system of additional payments. In general, there is a huge shortage of personnel in Ukraine, amounting to tens of thousands of people. As of January 1, 2020, in Kiev alone, 4 thousand doctors and 7 thousand nurses were required. And this year the situation has worsened. At the same time, the authorities did not dare to raise the salaries of medical workers, so it is not surprising that people are trying to get jobs in other countries.

    Everything is right in the News! winked
    Alas, everything is so now we have in the amerocolonial "Banderland", the bulk of medical workers are flesh from the flesh of the people and experience the same "negarazdy" as the rest of the population of the "nezalezhnoy" 404!
    And not only I am seized with horror at the "prospect" of getting sick or getting hurt so much that I have to seek medical help in the "shvydka" or in the "licarnia" .... inevitably I have to study medicine and self-medicate (mostly, the cheapest means and " folk ways ", seasoning with self-hypnosis and" Our Father "). request
    And so, yes -

    "to whom the war (Maidan), and to whom the mother is native"

    - some "ukrolekari (the odious Maidan paramedic-lethal American nurse Ulyana and her destructive" team of reformers "are taken out of the brackets, since they are, in general, the Absolute Evil!)" nowadays they are fattening "on human ailments" and troubles as well as " ukrovoyaki-heroi ", and other klepto" w / Bandera "-quasi" servants of the people "! negative

      How long will you tolerate American governance ??? All would have gathered together on the Maidan, on the People's Maidan, and not organized and paid for by the Americans. And they would have thrown off this power, which was running errands for the amerikosov, they would have caught all the banderlozhiks and put them back in cages. They would be divided according to directions, to the west, to the east. Double benefit, would heal as people (at least there is some kind of hope, the light at the end of the tunnel) and there is no need to pay a huge debt to the West. There will be no one to take lol If all areas are sprayed in different directions. lol

        hi Also a good question, Afinogen, sounds very nice! good
        А

        "divide and rule"

        - does not tell you anything ?!
        This is "thanks" to our "good grandfather Stalin" for the Russophobic Privarochek-enemy Zapukriya !!!
        There would be no "Svidomo" Galitsaev among us, everything would be different!
        You look, without the insidious rogulya crawling out of the "Skhronovsky" forest, the burned-out bastard Kravchik, who deftly manipulated the drunken "independent" leaders EBN and Shushkevich, then the Soviet Union would have been preserved (the cowardly "Gorby companions" themselves would not have coped!) ?! winked
        Under the Washington occupation, only quasi-national "Euromaidans" approved by the amerogaulayter are possible! request
        After all, even earlier, the Ukrainian SSR occupied by Hitler's "Common Europe" did not "overthrow" anyone! As long as the United States is alive, the pro-Washington Banderonazi regime will occupy the captured remnants of the former Ukrainian SSR, genocide and forcibly "assimilating" its Russian population!

          Well, it seems like Petliura was not a Westerner at all - from Poltava. And Petliurists also planted MOV and were against Russia (any Russia). And the Westerners are the continuation of the work of the Austrian, and then other Western special services. For the people of Ukraine, they only did worse.

      hi Good question, Sergey! good
      With the "Lexus", even in the squalid ukroprovince (and not just in the overflowing capital Kiev), against the background of the general impoverishment of the population, these are all the same ugly grimaces, the animal grin of capitalism

      some have thin soup and some small pearls! request

      Why are we, Ukrainian Russians, "we are not going to you" to beg? and tensely (judging by the numerous comments on Russian sites) living and surviving ?!
      Al we, Seryozha, do not read the Russian media and SeteSites, we do not listen to the stories of experienced people, we are not interested in the life of Russians and the fate of Russian compatriots, including the defenders of Donbass, and those "whom we do not abandon", unless all of this is for ourselves conclusions don't do ??! smile
      It is me here, in my native land, hated by the Maydauns-Russian, "vata", "colorad", "separa" and "moskal", whom the Banderlog and "svidomye" want to hang "on Gilyak" and take "to knives" ( and at the same time "heroes" - the Banderonazis have learned well that they will not be punished for such atrocities by the "Maidan authorities" - only encouragement and praise!), but I hold my head proudly, I do not give up! yes
      And in Russia, you will be considered a refugee - "khokhl", "non-brother", taken out of mercy, who will be bullied and humiliated by your Russian authorities and even ordinary people in every possible way (you never know such "Svidomo" Russian outcasts for a decade I have met on the Internet) - To me, in my old age, this humiliation in our common Russian Fatherland will be ten times more offensive, and I need it like that ??!
      Already (no matter how trite it sounds) it is better to die standing (albeit in a Banderonazi hell, but in your own "outskirts" of Novorossia) than shamefully escape and "live on your knees" in the inhospitable "mainland" Russia, without a stake and a yard, interrupted by random jobs and for years begging for "charity" - recognition of oneself as an equal Russian compatriot! No.
      IMHO

        Those who moved from Ukraine to Russia in the nineties do not beg for alms. Then the truth in Russia all asked for alms, in contrast to Ukraine. And they were Russians, not Ukrainian Russians, and that's a big difference.

          Then, in the 90s, and Ukraine was not a Russophobic "Banderland" and our old people were alive! And just like in Russia, there was a riot and most of the workers were interrupted from bread to water, for six months or more waiting for at least some kind of handout - "barter" in food or "% of wage arrears" - the comrenate authorities deliberately drove the Soviet people into uncomplaining poverty, living in one day! winked
          Under the power of the crazy EBNu, in the 90s, madly demolishing the former RFSR into separate fragments, those who had something with what, where and to whom to go!
          So, Just a Cat, do not judge and you will not be judged, what kind of "pointer" you are here, such as "Russian with a quality mark" - about such "Svidomo" Russian marginalized (nothing, only the place of residence, different from the "Svidomo" Ukrainian marginalized! ) I, a little higher, and wrote, read carefully! negative

            Ukraine has always been the same. And under the tsar father and under the Bolsheviks and under capitalism. Where were you "Russians" when Russia needed you? Did you sleep well and eat well? And your homeland was not Russia, but Ukraine. And now when they remembered about Russia? And who will restore Ukraine? The troops from Germany were taken out into the open field. They lived in tents, communal apartments and rented apartments. You are used to everything ready. You are used to what kind of YOU thinks the Polish king, the Russian tsar or the Turkish sultan. Sit on your priest straight and let Zelensky think for YOU. Good luck"!

              Your comments are just a "living illustration" request my answer to the dear Sergei Latyshev!

              Your mistake, Just a Cat! As I wrote above, I do not claim your rations, and I don’t ask for anything from Russia, the Russians!
              So, Just a Cat, you think a lot about yourself, you are not a "decree" for me! smile
              My homeland was and remained with me, this is the Soviet Union, the USSR! yes

                My Motherland is Russia, not the USSR with all sorts of Ukrainians, Balts, Georgians and Asians. Although I was born in the USSR. And I don't care if Finland will be under the influence of Russia or Ukraine. All inspiring confidence in Russia, and not in the form of temporary union fraternal republics. Your train (Ukraine), Mr. Pischak, is not even on the side track, it didn’t even just turn the wrong way, it flies into the abyss (and there are no laws of physics or economics that can prevent this). There are only a few meters left until the end. Of course, you can jump out and remain crippled in every sense, it is not clear where and how, or you can continue to yell good obscenities, cursing everyone from your compartment, while your government in the carriage of the restaurant has arranged the last feast.

    On the whole, you are right, BUT for the Maidan you need a good roof with money and your own radicals. these three main components.

    you might think that in Russia junior medical staff and doctors are all in chocolate ?. In Constantinople, yes, perhaps, and in the regions they also chew tar instead of bread
