  • [01] Hospital mismanagement case to courts after six-year delay

    AMNA / A case involving the wasteful use of orthopedic supplies that set back Edessa's Hospital, in northern Greece, by an estimated 1.8 million euro was finally referred to a public prosecutor on Wednesday, after a delay of roughly six years. The Health and Welfare Services' Inspectors' Corps report on the case was sent to the Edessa public prosecutor and internal disciplinary action taken against the hospital staff involved, while civil suits are to be filed against both the staff and the companies in order to return the lost funds to the hospital.

    The inspectors' investigation was carried out after the Social Insurance Foundation (IKA) refused to cover the cost of the supplies. It showed that the procurement was done at the legal price but the hospital suffered financial damage as a result of over-use of the supplies bought in ways that did not enhance patient health. www.amna.gr

    In spite of the findings, there was a delay in referring the case to justice because the term of the investigative team's leader ended in the midst of the investigation. AMNA
