The Employers of Poland strongly protest against the report prepared by PhD Prof Janusz Morys, the Rector of Gdansk Medical University, and against the theses posed in it.
The author of the document based on the unmentioned sources from one province argues that private hospitals do the selection of patients on account of their age, clinical status of the patient and the expected duration of hospitalization.
– Reporting to the public selective, unreliably juxtaposed and in no way representative data, without giving the source, is not only unacceptable, but also undermines the credibility of the Rector of the Medical University of Gdansk – says the Vice President of the Employers of Poland, Andrzej Madrala, emphasizing that the publicity of the report is an attempt to destroy private hospitals. Interestingly, the report was prepared by a public hospital which has been in very high debt and that in this way is trying to get rid of the uncomfortable competition from private hospitals.
According to Andrzej Madrala, the author of the report did not make every effort to do due diligence research. – It is unacceptable to draw conclusions based on the scope of operation of one or two private hospitals – says Madrala. The report also shows that private hospitals divide patients on account of their age. – That's not true. Besides, this would be contrary to the law – says Andrzej Sokolowski, the President of the National Association of Private Hospitals.
