A head of the hospital's Department of Medical Equipment and Supplies Management said that he prefers to be a specialty rather than his current job which is very stressful. He spends a lot of time checking and appraising the documents carefully. He added that though he works carefully, he is always worried and afraid of making mistakes.
According to Dr. Tang Chi Thuong, in the coming time, the Department of Health of Ho Chi Minh City will continue to petition the Ministry of Health and relevant ministries and agencies to soon issue detailed and specific guiding documents on the process of building a list, how to make estimates, build configurations to create a solid legal corridor for facilitation of procurement of medical supplies and devices in public health facilities.
