With mild manifestations of SARS, Crimeans are recommended to issue a sick leave remotely
Since the beginning of this year, disability certificates have been issued electronically throughout the country. Since at the moment there is a significant increase in the number of patients suffering from a new coronavirus infection or colds at home in a mild form, a decision has been made at the federal level on the possibility of obtaining a remote consultation with a doctor and issuing a sick leave certificate without an in-person examination , — The press service quotes the Acting Minister of Health of the Republic of Crimea Konstantin Skorupsky.
So, at the first symptoms of SARS, it is necessary to contact a medical organization over the phone.
If, during the consultation, the patient’s condition does not cause concern to the doctor, the patient will be issued a disability certificate remotely. Also, the specialist will give the necessary recommendations and prescribe treatment. After 7 days, a medical worker will contact the patient again, if the symptoms of the disease persist, the doctor will go to the patient at home for an on-site examination and adjustment of treatment or making a decision on hospitalization. If you recover after this period, the sick leave will also be remotely closed and transferred to the social insurance fund , — Konstantin Skorupsky notes.
In case of a sharp deterioration in the condition — the appearance of shortness of breath, shortness of breath, persistent high temperature (more than 38, 5 ℃) for three days, you should re-apply to a medical organization.
For patients with COVID-19, a negative test is not required for discharge and return to work if after 7 days the course of the disease and the presence of it symptoms have stopped , — emphasizes the interim head of the department.
Konstantin Skorupsky also noted that in case of difficulties in remotely applying for a sick leave, one should contact the “hot line” of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Crimea at the phone numbers 122, 8-800-733—34, 8-800-733-33-12.
The new procedure for issuing sick leave certificates will be valid until March.
