The directors of Sofia’s pediatrician, Pirogov and Lozenets hospital have been temporarily removed from their posts. This was made clear after a meeting with Health Minister Kiril Ananiev. A doctor has also been temporarily dismissed. Prime Minister Boyko Borissov insisted on it. This morning, he met with the parents of 3-year-old Alexander, who died last week after visiting the three health establishments.
“The measure was applied to all three directors until the investigation is completed”, said the director of the pediatric hospital, Dimitar Rusinov. “We assist the inspections as much as possible”, said the director of Pirogov, Prof. Assen Baltov. The director of Lozenets Hospital, Prof. Lubomir Spasov, refrained from commenting.
