NFZ inspections in Polish hospitals are the result of a scandal that erupted after it was discovered that a group of famous people had been vaccinated against COVID-19 out of sequence. Krystyna Janda, Leszek Miller and Olgierd Łukaszewicz were vaccinated at the University Clinical Center of the Medical University of Warsaw. Following the publication of the case, the Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski, announced inspections. The first started on Monday in the capital’s hospital.
On Wednesday, “Rzeczpospolita” announced that people could be vaccinated in order in five hospitals, and in case of irregularities, the National Health Fund can impose a fine of at least a quarter of a million zlotys. As we were able to establish, the Fund expanded its control over other institutions. In total, 9 hospitals are already under official control.
“Inspections started today at the Wałbrzych Specialist Hospital, the Ostrzeszów Health Center and the Zgorzelec Multispecialist Hospital,” Wądrzyk told us. – The trials take place at the Clinical Center of the Medical University of Warsaw, the Śrem County Hospital, the Sandomierz Specialist Hospital, the Opatów Hospital, the Nysa Health Complex and the Krapkowice Health Center, explains the spokesperson of the National Health Fund.
There, inspectors check how the vaccinations took place: who got the vaccine and whether they were eligible to do so. – The detailed results of the inspection will be presented after the end of the procedure – I learned from Sylwia Wądrzyk.
We have unofficially established that the first results of the inspections carried out by the National Health Fund will be known next week.
