In hospital of Ekaterinburg patients with a doctor’s appointment card was given to prayer and the commandments
City clinical hospital of Ekaterinburg caught in not quite the traditional approach to providing services to patients. It turned out that in addition to conventional medical care in the outpatient clinic at the institution trying to provide spiritual reports E1.ru.
One of the readers said that, in particular, the hospital issued printouts of the prayers and commandments. This happens directly at the front Desk. “We came in this morning with his wife, took the ticket in the electronic part, fell out the window N 1. My wife came over, took the ticket and gave her the prayer,” said the reader.
In hospital administration after treatment the patient had checked and said that what happened is an unacceptable situation for them. “We found this logger. She was deeply religious. We asked her to write an explanation”, – said journalists the press-Secretary of the clinical hospital N40 Inna Obelisken.
She added that from a legal point of view, the employee “did not break anything”. “But we believe that medical receptionist at his workplace has no right to speak nor preacher, nor teacher for our patients. Therefore, will be made operational conclusions non-administrative nature,” she promised.
A female receptionist refused to tell how many patients went to prayer, and how long it extends them. According to the documents, only that day she served eight people.
Note that medical institutions often collaborate with religious organizations. As evidenced by the sources, the usual thing is the consecration of the hospitals, opening them at the temples. In Simferopol takes place annually the consecration gowns.
Nevertheless religious advice in a health facility can be regarded as a breach of professional ethics, as in Primorye, where the doctor, who could not be vaccinated against rabies 11-year-old girl bitten by a stray dog and was advised by her parents to go to Church and “light a candle”.
In addition, the distribution of religious literature is restricted to operating in Russia since recently, the “law of Spring”. Violation is punishable by a fine from five thousand to 50 thousand rubles for individuals and from 100 thousand to one million rubles – for legal. Soon after the entry of this law into effect was filed the first administrative case, the defendant was Krishna Vadim Siberia from the city of Cherkessk. He was accused that he handed out in the street literature telling about his faith. The proceedings in the court began on 4 August, but soon the production was terminated “in connection with absence of structure of an offense”.
However, attempts to engage citizens responsible for religious propaganda did not stop. In Moscow, Orthodox activists were detained and handed over to police eight people, preaching in trains of the Yaroslavl direction and at the Yaroslavl station.
