Employees of the Institute of Urgent Medicine appreciate the progress made in the health system. Within a meeting with PDM President Vlad Plahotniuc, doctors and nurses valued that their wages increased and working conditions were improved during the democratic governance, moreover, they wished the good projects will be continued.
In the last three years, salaries of employees from the Institute of Emergency Medicine increased by 81 percent for nurses and doubled for resident doctors. The newest raise, approved last year, increased 20% wages of medics.
The measures were enabled thanks to the order and discipline made in the country by the Democratic Party.
"In 2016, we found an ill Moldova, already chronically sick. We applied injections but the patient we took at that time, Moldova had no prospects anymore. We applied shock therapies when we intervened in structures to form budget and we began to make order", said Vlad Plahotniuc, PDM candidate.
"I have been working in the Institute for Emergency Medicine for almost three years. Our salaries were raised during this period", said Vasile Şovgur, Head of the Emergency Medicine Department.

"There are three important things to me: Doctors must have good working conditions, good salaries, patients must trust the medical system and the medical system must be cleansed. The patient should enjoy a friendly environment, but at the same time, he must be responsible for abusing the doctors", said Mihai Stratulat, PDM candidate on the constituency 26.
Physicians also noted the investments made in the health care system, including the Emergency Hospital. Over the past four years, medical equipment has been purchased and investments in medical technology amounting to about 300 million lei have been made.
