In the Kovylkino district hospital, a 70-year-old woman with a broken leg had to crawl up the stairs from the third floor to the first. An elevator does not work in the hospital, there are no ramps and wheelchairs, said the victim’s daughter Ksenia Kremleva.
According to Xenia, the doctor categorically forbade her mother to step on a broken leg, since the woman’s joints are also a problem. The pensioner was forced to kneel down and crawl down.
I do not complain, do not ask for help, and especially do not blame the doctors. The question torments me: I have to come back here more than once with my mother. When will the hospital elevator finally work ... Will there be ramps? Strollers? This is another manifestation of indifferent, soulless attitude towards people. You can not do it this way!
