According to the KDNP representative, healthcare is controlled by chaos and confusion, as patients are not being treated, waiting lists are becoming longer, there are no available funds and dismissals are increasing. As opposed to the promised Ft146,000 basic fee, hospitals only receive Ft136,000 (every hospital receives a different sum after certain treatments), and due to a performance limit they can’t do more. This is all leading to the fact that not some but many hospitals will soon be bankrupt, as debts of bigger institutions are already as high as half a billion Forints, Nagy added.
In this sitution, hospital heads are forced to treat patients on a private basis, which not only puts changes their equality but also that of doctors and nurses, Nagy said. If it becomes practice that doctors only treat patients with money, all employees will want to belong to a certain department with higher wages within an institution, he added.
The politician explained that all this harms equality within health care, as only those are being treated who can afford to pay for it. This results in the fact that segregation increases and the discriminative methods will mostly affect the Roma population of the country.
