Commissioner for Human Rights in the Irkutsk Region Valeriy Lukin was approached by citizen S., who complained that, being a person with a disability, she could not obtain medicine on the basis of a subsidized prescription because of its lack in the pharmacy.
To resolve the situation, Valeriy Lukin applied to the regional Ministry of Healthcare.
According to the answer, the woman was given the necessary medicine. The audit determined that the prescription was issued on October 2, and it was provided only on October 25.
The medical commission recommended that the Head Physician of the hospital, where the applicant is observed, consider taking disciplinary measures against the local GP for improper dispensary observation of the patient.
