Our main activity with organization of medical care for foreigners living in the Czech Republic.
Almost all of us had to asked for medical care in the Czech clinics, hospitals, private hospitals and doctors. A large part of foreign patients are unaware of their rights in the provision of medical aid, which are regulated in the Czech Republic “Law on the provision of health services No 372/2011, Chapter 4.” Předpis č. 372/2011 Sb.Zákon o zdravotních službách a podmínkách jejich poskytování (zákon o zdravotních službách) ČÁST ČTVRTÁ – POSTAVENÍ PACIENTA A JINÝCH OSOB V SOUVISLOSTI S POSKYTOVÁNÍM ZDRAVOTNÍCH.
Many of us also has faced with several challenges:
The language barrier between a patient and a doctor, who can not afford to correctly describe the complaint to tell about illnesses in the past. A patient usually don’t understand the details of a doctor prescribed treatment, the terms written in the medical report and other medical information.
If you are referred for consultation with a specialist or to some research tool, it can be expected from a few days to weeks.
There is so difficulty to make an appointment for a consultation with an experienced specialist, professional, recognized in Europe.
You probably has an expirience, when has scheduled for a consultation on the exact time, but has waited an additionaly 30 min. and more.
When you has visited to a hospital for medical care in case of emergency stuff (trauma, acute illness, etc…) you likely will be hard to understand not only a doctor, but also appreciate his professionalism, accuracy of diagnosis and the correction of prescribed treatment. Even if you have any doubt, then it is unlikely that there will be an opportunity at the same time to see a specialist from another hospital. You have to follow simly rool: be trust or dont.
Quite often a doctors has prescribed a treatment due to “clinical diagnosis”, based on the so-called “physical” examination. At the same time, your request to provide some laboratory diagnostics tests (blood etc.) or instrumental investigations to clarify the diagnosis, the doctor may make a loss or irritation, and is regarded as a manifestation of personal confidence.
The problems has raise a questions, but the answers there are not always easy to find them:
- In case of a doctors prescribed treatment was not effective, what you have to do, what is the best solution?
- you need the medicines that you have take before and it was helpfull, but a doctor does not think it’s reasonable
and don’t want to write you a prescription for them, what you have to do?
- you decided to make for yourself some instrumental examination as a prevention, or that was recommended with other doctor to confirm the diagnosis, but you need a referral list from a doctor, but he did not consider that it necessary, and will not write it. What you have to do?
