Instead of "stadium construction in Miskolc": a new building will be added to the hospital in Miskolc

Instead of "stadium construction in Miskolc": a new building will be added to the hospital in Miskolc

Within the framework of a national program, a new child psychiatry department will be established in Győr, Miskolc, Nyíregyháza and Szolnok; In Pécs and Szeged, the existing one is being modernized.

The Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County Central Hospital is expanding - it turned out from the news of weborvos.hu. The Miskolc institution will receive a nearly 500-meter-long child psychiatric building, and the HUF 6 billion project will be implemented from EU funds.

MTI said the cornerstone of the investment was laid on Thursday. According to a statement from the State Health Care Center, the expansion will create a 15-bed pediatric psychiatric ward within the adult psychiatric ward.

Inpatient and outpatient care is also expanding. The development takes place within the framework of a national program: active inpatient child psychiatric wards or child psychiatric wards are established in Győr, Miskolc, Nyíregyháza and Szolnok. In Pécs and Szeged, the existing inpatient care will be modernized and capacity expanded.

The outpatient care and care frameworks are also developing: complex outpatient care units are being expanded or established in Zalaegerszeg, Veszprém, Székesfehérvár, Nyíregyháza, Fehérgyarmat, Debrecen, Szolnok, Kecskemét, Szeged and two Pécs sites.

There are those who talk about CT and there are those who pass on the next one

There are those who talk about CT and there are those who pass on the next one

Remember! Gergely Karácsony promised in the campaign that there will be CT in every district, 9 months have passed, neither CT nor money. Karácsony In February, they received HUF 10 billion from the government for health improvements. Since then, a crying silence has surrounded the fate of this money. Improvements in healthcare are not being implemented, but are not even planned, no tenders have been announced.

We wrote about the 10 billion in this article:https://szamokadatok.hu/Post/1156/Karacsonyek_hazudnak_a_Soros-penzrol

HUF 10 billion means the currently 75 CT devices, so if Gergely Karácsony had wanted to, he could have three in each district. So much for the populist left-wing politician, but now let’s see what the government is doing in the meantime:

🧡A CT scan showing the lesion caused by the virus was handed over in Pécs

Imaging diagnostic equipment capable of detecting lesions characteristic of coronavirus infection was handed over at the Clinical Center of the University of Pécs (PTE) on Friday. Tamás Schanda, Parliamentary and Strategic Secretary of State at the Ministry of Innovation and Technology, said at the event: in front of doctors for lung changes caused by the virus, helps to monitor the disease during treatment and control tests.

"You can use it to answer questions that other imaging diagnostic tools, such as X-rays or ultrasounds, don't," he pointed out.

Hungary has won the first battle against the coronavirus, curbed the first wave of the epidemic and, unlike other countries, was able to avoid mass illnesses, he said, adding that although the Hungarian defense is one of the most successful in Europe, the threat has not passed, experts say to prepare for the second autumn wave of the epidemic.

The Secretary of State drew attention to the fact that the preparation could not be effective without adequate medical tools and equipment, so the new CT of the clinical center is a significant step forward in the fight against the coronavirus. He added that the device is of enormous importance in the early detection of other lesions, including cancer, as well as in performing lung screening tests.

Tamás Schanda pointed out: the clinical center of the University of Pécs is the clinically level patient care institution of Southern Transdanubia, one of the largest healthcare providers in Hungary, and in many areas it takes part not only in regional but also in national tasks. The center has an annual ward number of more than one hundred thousand, and carries out more than one million cases in outpatient care, as well as conducting research and education.

Attila Miseta, Professor of Medicine, Rector of the University of Pécs, thanked the university staff for their sacrificial work in the control of the coronavirus epidemic, and expressed the hope that in half or a year we will think of the virus as a bad memory. He believed that if we kept to the regulations, followed the instructions with due discipline, there would still be no very serious problems.

He stressed that medicine is evolving on a rapid scale, instruments purchased 7-10 years ago have already been depreciated and need to be replaced. One element of this process is the purchase of a new CT, followed in the near future by the purchase of another.

Andor Sebestyén, president of the clinical center, stressed that the university cannot stop with developments because its goal is to provide the best possible care for the population of the region. He indicated that the decision-makers already have a development concept that includes the reorganization of the Rákóczi and Rét street sites of the clinical center and the modernization of clinics.

Finally, the "mirror"
Compared to 2010, there are twice as many CT and MR devices operating in Hungary today, there are also specialists and many more examinations are performed with these machines.

"When we started collecting data on imaging diagnostic tools in 2010, there were 73 CT devices and 30 MR devices in operation across the country. When Minister Gergely Gulyás announced on Thursday, November 21, 2019, that there were 27 CT devices in Budapest , then there were still 124 CT and 76 MR, that is, a total of 200 large diagnostic devices were operating in the country, but it was licensed on the same day for equipment 201 and 202. And it is already known where it will start operating in January at 203. "

Let's stick to how we have lived so far!

Let's stick to how we have lived so far!

Although the epidemic situation in the surrounding countries and in Western Europe is constantly deteriorating, the Hungarian defense has proved its worth, said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in an interview with Kossuth Radio on Friday morning. He emphasized that Hungarian healthcare was one of the best performing in Europe during the first wave of the epidemic, and now all means are available to control the epidemic.

There is no vaccine yet, we cannot get rid of it, we have to live with it, and if we live badly with it, it will have consequences.

"The Hungarian defense has proved its worth, now I feel that the intensity, effort and regulation of the defense are well set, so if we keep the way we have lived so far and the way we have lived with the virus, there will be no problem," said Viktor Orbán. .

We plotted the data for the last three months by comparing the number of new infections per day to the population of the countries. As a deterrent, we would have asked Sweden too, but the numbers there are so bad that they could even envy the Romanian numbers. Furthermore, in the spirit of liberalism, the Swedes provide incomplete data.

The Prime Minister also spoke about the development of the entire Hungarian water supply system from a thousand billion forints, as well as the transformation of the environmental protection and energy system.

Development of health expenditure

10 Years of Civil Governance - Part 13

Development of health expenditure

Concluding remarks on the health topic from the Perspective Institute:
“According to OECD data, per capita health expenditures decreased in real terms only in Hungary between 2003 and 2009, while they increased in Hungary between 2010 and 2016. Health expenditure alone increased in proportion to GDP in 2016 - it should be added that in addition to dynamically growing national income, but also in the context of dealing with the emergency caused by the coronavirus, this ratio will also increase significantly. ”

Emphasizing once again:
Left-liberals who are constantly “educating health care” have also reduced health spending in real terms under their rule (1), the only one among OECD countries (2). During the rule of Fidesz, expenditures started to increase, we got off the shame.

OECD statistics also include household and government expenditure. We were bold and simply did the calculation with public spending.

We examined in detail how the real value of per capita public health expenditure changed on an annual basis. That is, we looked at the percentage increase / decrease in expenditure per year (3) and adjusted it for inflation (4). Public health expenditure in 2002 was determined on the basis of the 2003 change (5).

The figure shows that left-liberal governance only increased public health spending in real terms in 2005 and 2006 (6.9%, 1.3%). In 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, by 3.5%, 1.1%, 11.6%, 1.7%, respectively, 5, Expenditure decreased by 5% in real terms. Overall, the real value of public health spending fell by 14.7%.

During the rule of Fidesz, spending stagnated roughly in 2010 and 2011 (0.3%, -0.1%), while in 2012 it decreased by 5.8%. From 2013 to 2018, spending in real terms increased by 2.4%, 6.5%, 5.7%, 5.4%, 3.6%, and 6%, respectively. Overall, the real value of public health spending increased by 25.9% under Fidesz.

That is, in the days of left-liberal governments, public spending beautified only the outrageously rough withdrawal of public health funds. And are they still in health care?

Debt settlement for hospitals, development of ambulances, drug subsidies

10 Years of Civil Governance - Part 12

Debt settlement for hospitals, development of ambulances, drug subsidies

The Perspective Institute continued with the debt of hospitals:
“The state currently settles hospital debt annually, which is a partial solution, and a future solution to the issue is being negotiated between the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Human Resources, hospitals and suppliers. The professions have been involved in debt settlement, which has increased the strategic role of specialist care. ”

Hospital indebtedness is not a new phenomenon, the same was the case before 2010 (1), only at that time the Government was not unreasonably attacked by the balliberal press, only by way of information. Liabilities rose to 65.8 billion in 2008, to 77.2 billion in 2009 and to 124.7 billion in 2010, after which declines began, according to available data (2). Overdue debt by 2014 kicked in at 64.4 billion.

In 2013, HUF 33.1 billion, HUF 9.6 billion in 2014, HUF 60 billion in 2015 and HUF 21.4 billion in 2017 and HUF 30.4 billion in 2018 were paid out as hospital debt settlement (3). In 2019, 42.8 billion was spent on debt settlement. In addition, debt-free organizations also received so-called incentive support. Total debt settlement is already well over 200 billion.

Thanks to debt settlement, hospitals are stable, no matter how much the Libyan media wants to panic. They are constantly working to address structural problems (4) that cause operational efficiency gaps. It can be stated that the main reasons for the huge debt stock can be traced back to governance before 2010: underfunding, financial austerity.

This is how the analysis continues:
”Between 2014 and 2018, 23 new ambulance stations were established, and since 2010, nearly 600 new ambulances have been acquired. The price subsidy system for medicines has been modified, NEAK generic incentives have been introduced and multi-annual agreements have been concluded with a number of pharmaceutical manufacturers, under which the prices of many medicines have fallen. ”

600 new ambulances, that’s actually at least 1,000 (5, 6). In terms of ambulance stations, 32 new ones have been built and 130 have been renewed since 2010. It contains additional numbers (7).

Dr. Mágenheim from Neighbors would no longer know about these vehicles, but nonetheless, the usual dry complaint would definitely break out of the characters if the series were to restart (8).

Experts have warned the Dutch government of the epidemic, yet they have done nothing

The numbers speak for themselves, we do not ask the Netherlands for advice

Experts have warned the Dutch government of the epidemic, yet they have done nothing

The most read Dutch-language Dutch newspaper, the NL Times, writes that Liberal governments led by Mark Rutte (Liberal People's Party, Momentum's siblings) have been warned three times in recent years to prepare for a possible epidemic in the Netherlands. referring to the experience of the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Despite all this, Rutte has done nothing to prepare, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health are now trying to shift responsibility, and Rutte is not talking about the matter, instead undermining European solidarity by sabotaging crown bonds.

According to the NL Times, in 2018 the Dutch Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport asked health consultant Ger Steenbergen, a professor at the University of Groningen, to write a study on how the Hague government could respond to pandemics, more specifically what the to mitigate the effects of the Dutch phases of pandemics.

The expert’s work was based in part on the experience of the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
Ger Steenbergen completed his study back in 2018, in which he concluded that information and experience were available in the Netherlands that would allow effective action in the event of a pandemic, but these are not used by the Hague government.
Later, seeing the inaction of the governing coalition of the liberal Mark Rutte (Liberal People's Party-VVD, a sister party of the Hungarian Momentum, a member of Renew Europe) in power since 2010, Steenbergen suggested to the head of the Ministry of Health that
at least at the international level, try to work with others if they are no longer in the Netherlands.
According to him, it would also have been necessary to create a comprehensive international epidemiological strategy.

Prior to that, back in 2016, a think tank called the Local Development Cooperation and Public Policy Inspectorate produced a report that also referred to experiences during the previous Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

According to the report,
the Dutch government is so unwilling to cooperate internationally in the field of health that it is already jeopardizing cooperation within the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO).
In the same year, the Dutch Institute of International Relations in Clingendael, based in The Hague, issued a communication on the shortcomings of the government's health policy, highlighting the need for more coherent international cooperation from the Rutte cabinet, especially on epidemics.
The Clingendael Institute also exemplified the Ebola epidemic, and it is no coincidence that there are a significant number of West African migrant communities in the Netherlands, although the vast majority are not from the "Golden Coast" area the epidemic is less affected (there are more than 400 000 Moroccan migrants in the Netherlands.)

According to health experts
despite all these steps, the liberal government did nothing. That is why the current coronavirus pandemic may have hit the country so unprepared.
The author of the 2018 study, Ger Steenbergen, gave an interview to the Dutch daily Trouw a few days ago, which was also covered by the NL Times.

The frustrated expert partly explained the inactivity he experienced as a personal failure by saying
at the level of the Dutch government, to put it mildly, dialogue between the various ministries is also inadequate.
According to its statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport view the international health situation and the resulting cooperation in a completely different way.

According to the Ministry of Health, this belongs to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, based on the opinion of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but it is the competence of the Ministry of Health. Steenbergen did not ask whether one of the reasons for the lack of cooperation within the government could be that the two ministers were members of other parties, or simply that the liberal Mark Rutte had not learned to coordinate cabinet work.

According to experts,
the lack of international and intergovernmental cooperation and the ignorance of the cabinet can therefore be attributed to the severity of the epidemic in the Netherlands.
And Mark Rutte is trying to block cooperation not only in his own country and internationally, but even at the level of the European Union.
He was the one who vetoed the issuance of so-called "crown bonds" by the EU, which could have been a significant help to the southern Member States hardest hit by the pandemic.
The bond issue was mainly supported by Italy, Spain and Portugal.

This is how the "principle of European solidarity" that has been much voiced by liberals must be interpreted, because when it comes to being financially and not just at the level of press releases, liberals are vetoing everything.

Waiting list, satisfactory care, healthy lifestyle

10 Years of Civil Governance - Part 11

Waiting list, satisfactory care, healthy lifestyle

We have already written about waiting lists (1), which was also confirmed by the Institute of Perspectives: “From 2012 to 2020, about HUF 32 billion was spent on reducing waiting lists, and with this expenditure the number of waiting patients decreased from 70,000 to 30,000. The administrative burden of primary care has been reduced, as part of this, primary care practices have been able to report online to NEAK since 2011, and the Electronic Health Service Area has also been established. ”

The waiting list (2) statistics show the waiting time for the most important interventions, which is a good indicator for other services as well.

Let us now look at another very important measure, based on Eurostat (3) statistics, that we are in terms of the necessary, albeit unmet, health care needs compared to other countries.

If we were left-liberal journalists, we would look at the graph at the beginning (3) and say that while in 2018 the rate of unmet health needs in the EU Member States averaged 3.2%, in this ‘fucking country’ this indicator 5.6% and dictatorship. After that, we would hand over the article, go to a ruin pub, get drunk from a tummy tuck, suppress a grassy cigarette, and then wake up rested the next day and continue brainwashed.

If we look at Figure 3, we see that the reasons attributable to the health care system, i.e., the cost of care, geographical distance, or length of the waiting list, are negligible compared to other reasons.
Table 1 conclusively shows that only 0.8% of the 5.6% can be attributed to the health system, compared to the EU average of 1.8%. That's a very good ratio.

Among the other reasons (4.8%), the misconceptions of “I don’t have time” (1.5%) and “we hope it will resolve itself” (2.6%) triumphed. We recommend that you at least consult your GP over the phone, devoting your time to our health. (3) contains additional instructive statistics.
This is how the Perspective Institute continued:
'A public health product tax (4) was introduced in 2011 to promote healthy eating and improve funding for health services and public health programs. An important step in terms of public health is the tightening of the law on the protection of non-smokers (5). As a matter of priority, there have been a number of developments in cardiology and oncology, significant improvements in the field of traumatology, and the transformation of emergency care (6), which is now in a 'test facility'.

The pointlessness of the visit fee and the hospital daily fee in numbers

Gyurcsány's "innovation" hurt the poor, did not solve system failures and lack of resources

The pointlessness of the visit fee and the hospital daily fee in numbers

It doesn’t hurt to sometimes remember the deeds of left-liberals so that they don’t fall into obscurity. Recently, there was a visitation fee and a hospital per diem introduced by left-liberals 13 years ago and lived for roughly 1 year. By default, it meant HUF 300 occasionally, while for certain benefits it meant HUF 600 and HUF 1,000, respectively. This system was abolished by the results of the Fidesz referendum. In this post, we will quantify and scale up to see how much bullshit this fundraiser was around 2007-2008.

In 10 months, this “innovation” brought in HUF 21.7 billion in revenue, so we can talk about 26 billion on an annual basis.

We can count on savings of 77 billion in one year, if we get 64 billion in 10 months. They saved on the care of active and chronic patients, as many did not go to the doctor. This could be explained by the fact that unjustified doctor-patient contacts did not occur, however, the justification of a contact is always revealed only later. Drug turnover has fallen by 15 billion in 10 months, meaning then most missed doctor visits might have been justified because medicine is rarely prescribed for anything. Further arguments and counter-arguments can be found in the Index article, which was not yet clicked in 2008.

The graph shows that, compared to the HUF 1,854 billion health expenditure of the 2007 budget, the HUF 26 billion revenue and the HUF 103 billion (thus doubtful) savings achieved were negligible.

In order for our liberal readers to be able to compare to this, we have also plotted the 330 billion spent on stadiums over 10 years and the 2018 health expenditures on the graph. Thus, even they can see what kind of crazy governance the left-liberals have produced in this area as well.

The Healthy Budapest Program

The Healthy Budapest Program

! ️The Healthy Budapest Program is the largest hospital development program in Budapest and Pest County in recent decades. Developments amounted to HUF 700 billion by 2026, and so far in the amount of HUF 245 billion.

Before the left takes ownership of the developments, let us be clear: It is not Gergely Karácsony and the left that is behind it. The Healthy Budapest Program is the responsibility of EMMI, which provides resources and coordinates developments.

The coronavirus epidemic has shifted priorities, but the Healthy Budapest Program (EBP), the most significant health development in the country's history in the capital and the Central Hungarian region, continues, said Attila Tóvizi, Deputy Director General of the State Health Care Center at Magyar Nemzet. in an interview released Tuesday.

In 2020, another HUF 40 billion will be spent on health developments in Budapest, the Ministry of Human Resources writes in a statement.

In the case of almost 20 hospitals in Budapest and Pest County, as well as in the case of specialist clinics, the preparation of the planning documentation required for the implementation of the Healthy Budapest Program (EBP) has recently started. In the health development program worth more than HUF 700 billion, the institutions have so far been able to acquire almost 5,000 surgical, anesthetic, imaging, as well as cardiological, gynecological, rehabilitation-therapeutic, ophthalmic and laboratory equipment.

In the largest health development program in the history of Budapest and Pest counties, the infrastructural, medical technology and IT development of the 4 central hospitals, 11 national medical institutions, 24 partner hospitals and 32 specialist clinics continues. The Government provided HUF 40 billion in 2017 and HUF 30 billion in 2018 for the nine-year modernization program. In the budget of 2019, the EBP received HUF 41.9 billion, and in 2020 the Program will continue from HUF 40 billion. So far, a total of about HUF 245 billion of domestic and EU funds have been decided.

The Healthy Budapest Program has also set the renewal of the diagnostic and therapeutic instrument park and IT equipment of hospitals, national institutes and specialist clinics by 2026.

As part of medical technology developments in the recent past with more than 4,200 surgical instruments (operating tables, high-frequency surgical cutting devices, C-arm surgical X-ray image intensifiers, ophthalmic operating microscopes, defibrillator devices, patient monitoring monitors); The institutions were enriched with 337 anesthesia machines (159 ventilators and 178 anesthesia machines) and 20 imaging equipment (DSA, CT, MRI, X-ray;).

In addition, more than 600 traumatology beds, hundreds of endoscopes, ECGs, Holters, cardiology, gynecology, rehabilitation-therapy, ophthalmology and laboratory equipment, as well as ultrasound devices were delivered to hospitals in Budapest and Pest County.

Unprecedented hardware development has also taken place in recent months: more than 12,000 IT devices (server, PC, laptop, tablet and printer) have been procured so far, ensuring that the region’s entire hospital IT park will be replaced by the end of the year.

In the framework of infrastructural developments, in the case of 17 hospitals and specialist clinics - including the National Oncology Institute, the National Korányi Pulmonology Institute, the Nyírő Gyula National Institute of Psychiatry and Addiction, the Pest County Flór Ferenc Hospital, the Uzsoki Street Ferenc Hospital and Jahzs Street Hospital In the hospital - the preparation of the design documentation required for the construction has started.

Healthcare wage development, practices

10 Years of Civil Governance - Part 10

Healthcare wage development, practices

Facts, figures, data - reality!

Over the last 10 years, health care has undergone significant development, for which the Perspective Institute also intended a chapter in its analysis.
Before turning to the results, it is important to mention that during the decades of communism, health care was destroyed both morally and in terms of the standard of care (1). It was during this period that gratitude money emerged, which is now in decline.

Left-liberal governments from 2002 to 2010 continued the health “improvements” of communist predecessors: closed hospitals — liquidated beds, declining standards of care, long waiting lists, dismissal of doctors and professionals, low wages (2). High ‘innovation’, visit fees and hospital per diems have also stalled (3), and the Hospinvest scandal (4) can be linked to this period.

There are obvious flaws in health care, but if we compare the current situation with the situation in 2010, we see significant progress. Of course, these facts are not visible through a libsi visor.
The Institute of Perspectives considers wage development to be the most important step, because if workers do not see their future, then health care has no future either.

Supporting the above with data:
The increase in workers 'wages has taken place within the framework of the workers' career model (5), which gives workers predictability. We have written in more detail on employee wages (6). Healthcare professionals already receive scholarships during their training (7). The average salary of doctors increased from HUF 338 thousand in 2010 to HUF 871 thousand by 2019 (8). However, the creation of a medical career model is yet to come.

The number of professionals increased by 22,000 (9) and the number of doctors increased by 6,000 (10).

The Perspective Institute continued with the practices:
“The operation of the practice communities has also started (11), and the access of young doctors to practice is supported by service flats within the framework of the Hungarian Village program, as well as by an interest-free practice purchase program. Funding for GP practices has been improved, with practice grants increasing for years, by more than 70 per cent since 2010. A Resident Support Program was launched in 2011 and the specialist training system was restructured in 2015. (12)

While in 2010 the average monthly income of a GP practice was HUF 867 thousand, in the first half of 2019 it was HUF 1.6 million (13). In healthcare (excluding social benefits), the average gross income was HUF 176 thousand in 2010 (14), which increased to HUF 388 thousand by the end of 2019 (15).
