Good Samaritan often uses the public hospital services for its beneficiaries. To better serve them indirectly leads us in seeking to improve the quality of the medical services offered in state hospitals which are often underfunded and hardly can retain good quality medical staff. This is achieved through the provision of new or second hand functional medical equipment.
While many medical services in our town and country have improved relative to the 1989 situation, they are far behind most of the other European countries plus there is still a mentality of entitlement rather than care and service among some medical staff. Adding to that the underpayment of the sector, migration in droves of the qualified staff towards the west and prejudice, one realizes it is harder for orphans to obtain proper attention and care in the system.
Investments like the one we obtained through a grant from Alcoa Foundation bring Good Samaritan’s youngsters as well as the organization in a better light. We partnered with the local “Nicolae Popovici” Municipal Hospital in obtaining a comprehensive list of equipment which we kindly ask you to consider reviewing. Upon your request we can provide a wish list.
