Baltic news, News from Latvia, BNN.LV, BNN-NEWS.COM, BNN-NEWS.RUHourly rates will be increased by 10% for specialists of Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital involved in childbirth assistance.

Considering the increase of the tariff in the field of obstetrical hospital services, the hospital has performed a calculation at the beginning of January 2017 to ensure that all funding is allocated only to wages. The total amount to be diverted to wages, without taxes, is planned at EUR 77,353 this year, report representatives of Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital.

The hospital explains that the increase of wages was calculated with the new state tariff on childbirth in mind, as well as the number of patients and specialists involved in the process in the previous year.

Hourly rate increase for gynaecologist, childcare nurses, midwives and other specialists has been set at 10%. For intensive care therapists, who are involved in the process only partially, the hourly rate increase has been set at 5%. Because the tariff for intensive therapy has not been increased, wage increase for these specialists is lower.

«Maternity ward and newborn intensive therapy ward are part of the Perinatal Care Centre. Average monthly wage increase for obstetricians and midwives working normal hours is EUR 80 to EUR 112, for newborn care specialists the average wage increase is EUR 79 to EUR 144 before taxes,» Stradins Hospital reports.

The state tariff, starting from 1 January 2017, is EUR 346.61 for physiological childbirth, EUR 499.03 for pathological procedure, EUR 613.81 for caesarian.
