Due to the case of the patient who died at the doorstep of the emergency center in Samokov, the hospital issued a statement saying that at the moment the city’s General Hospital does not have a registered emergency department in accordance with the current Ordinance of 2017 for approval of the “Emergency Medicine” medical standard.

Earlier it became clear that a man died in front of the Emergency Service in Samokov. A video taken by his relatives shows him lying helpless in the back seat of a car while waiting for a doctor to arrive.

It turns out that the medic who was on shift had to accompany another emergency patient by ambulance to Sofia. Only the nurse was there.

Here is the entire position of MBAL Samokov:

MBAL – Samokov has been issued a permit to carry out medical activities No. MB-253/17.08.2016.
According to the issued permit for activity in Samokov Medical Center, an Emergency Department has been opened and is operating – with first level of competence in fulfillment of the medical standard for “Emergency Medicine”, approved by the repealed regulation. The medical facility had to submit an application by the end of 2017 and brought its emergency department operations under the new medical standard “Emergency Medicine”.

Until now, there is no information about any administrative actions taken by the management of the Medical Center – Samokov to submit an application and documents to change the circumstances of the issued permission to carry out treatment activities, with a view to complying with the deadline for bringing the opened Emergency Department into compliance with the requirements of the standards in emergency medicine.

This means that at the moment the hospital in the town of Samokov does not have a registered emergency department in accordance with the current Ordinance No. 3 of 2017 for approval of the medical standard “Emergency Medicine”.

Currently, Samokov Medical Center has a contract for the provision of medical assistance to patients with emergency conditions, with which the hospital undertakes to provide diagnosis and treatment of an urgently ill patient at the request of the duty team from the emergency medical assistance branch. The hospital also had such a contract in 2021.

Please note that with a number of letters from the Ministry of Health to the directors of the regional health inspections, they are required to instruct the heads of the medical facilities to take the necessary administrative actions to promptly bring the activities of the medical facilities into compliance with the requirements of the current medical standards and update the the issued permits for carrying out medical activity.
