Briefly about the main thing. Doctors appealed against the decision of the court, which proved their guilt in the death of the child Katenka Kozachek in the town of Zlatoust, Chelyabinsk region.
For almost five hours the girl continued to suffocate in the intensive care unit. The child was connected to a ventilator only when he started vomiting and depression of consciousness due to lack of oxygen.

For artificial ventilation of the lungs, an unusable apparatus and technical oxygen were used,

But even after the death of the child, doctors continued to use the faulty ventilator until the man turned to the chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Alexander Bastrykin.

For three years the girl's parents argued that a malfunctioning ventilator had led to a lethal outcome, and stressed that a little boy had died in the same hospital.

After the reception in Zlatoust, a criminal case was immediately opened under clause "c" of part 2 of Article 238 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and the ventilator was seized. And then the head of the Investigative Committee dismissed the head of the investigative department for Zlatoust.

The child's parents sought a public trial, but they were refused at the request of the defendants.

But they believe that they are not guilty of anything, and they have nothing to apologize for.

The head physician told us today: "I won't even ask you for forgiveness,"

The guilty verdict was appealed by the head physician of the city hospital No. 2 Natalya Akhtaryanova, pediatrician Nina Vyukova and resuscitation specialist Anton Bogdanov. The Chelyabinsk Regional Court denied them the complaint. But the punishment for the death of a two-year-old girl awaits only the head of the medical institution, who will only have to leave her post. Doctors avoided being prosecuted for the expiration of the statute of limitations.

The court found that the medical staff of the Zlatoust hospital improperly performed their professional duties and caused the death of the child. Defects in the quality of medical care were identified. An unsuitable apparatus and technical oxygen were used for artificial ventilation of the lungs.

The head physician Natalya Akhtaryanova was sentenced to three years of probation under Part 2 of Article 293 of the Criminal Code. Pediatrician Nina Vyukova and reanimatologist Anton Bogdanov each have two years of restriction of freedom, but due to the expiration of the statute of limitations for criminal liability under Part 2 of Article 109 of the Criminal Code, they were released from punishment. The verdict came into force.
From the hospital in favor of the girl's parents, who were recognized as victims, they recovered 10 million rubles in compensation.


For almost five hours the girl continued to suffocate in the intensive care unit. The child was connected to a ventilator only when he started vomiting and depression of consciousness due to lack of oxygen. By that time, the patient had developed a fourth degree of laryngeal stenosis, severe respiratory failure, and a second or third degree coma. The supply of oxygen through the ventilator could alleviate the girl's condition, but the device turned out to be faulty - its service life had already expired for three years, and overhaul and maintenance had not been carried out for a long time. As established in the court, the head physician knew about this problem since September 2014, but due to the improper performance of her duties, she did nothing to solve it.
The presence of violations in the provision of assistance to the girl was confirmed by Roszdravnadzor. But even after the death of the child, according to the father, the doctors continued to use the device until the man turned to the chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Alexander Bastrykin.
