Problems and development of emergency medical service were discussed at «Healthcare Hour»
The meeting in a «Healthcare Hour» format, held on February 7 by Acting Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov, was devoted to the problems of the emergency medical service. According to the Ministry of Health RB, there are 305 ambulance teams in the republic. At the same time, only one team per shift operates in seven districts (in Belokataysky, Ermekeevsky, Zilairsky, Kiginsky, Sterlibashevsky, Fedorovsky, Sharansky), there are two teams per shift in 14 districts.
To remedy this situation, the ambulance services are centralized: small departments are merged with large ones – in cities or regional centers. In the republic, emergency stations are staffed with doctors at 54%, and paramedics – 79%.
The service fleet consists of 504 vehicles, of which 140 are 100% worn out. The total depreciation of the fleet is 67%. In 2018, the republic purchased 225 ambulance vehicles. At the moment there is a need to replace 100 – 140 units of transport, and therefore an order for 60 cars has been submitted to the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
