Newsroom 02/06/2016 | 19:48

Romanian minister of health Vlad Voiculescu has frozen contests for filling hospital manager positions until the introduction of new modifications to the contracts, so that they include certain performance criteria for the evaluation of the activity, said Laurentiu Colintineanu, spokesperson of the ministry, quoted by Agerpres newswire.

“The management contract must be modified (…) so that it includes clear performance criteria. Based on these, an objective evaluation of the activity of hospital managers can be carried out (…) The decision of minister Voiculescu is as follows: no contest for filling the management position will take place until these analysis and modifications are carried out, and the deadline is in several weeks,” said Colintineanu.

Among these criteria, the minister wants to include the correct reporting of hospital-acquired infections, the issue of hygiene in hospitals and also the patient feedback.

This initiative comes to counteract the selection of hospital managers selected on political criteria.
