the request of the secretary-general of the Italian Federation of family doctors (Fimmg), Giacomo Milillo, ministers, Renato Brunetta for the Public Ferruccio Fazio Health and Maurizio Sacconi of Work, and the chairman and the commissioner of Inps, Antonio Mastrapasqua.
To their Milillo has sent yesterday a letter to express “the concern of the Fimmg on the new rules”. To worry the doctors, especially the part of the legislation in which it is expected that the certificates may not refer to ‘clinical data are not directly observed né objectively documented’.
“Thereò means – explains Milillo – that the family doctor, it willà to draw up the certificate for his patient, with whom she has a relationship of trust, which occurred in the evening in order to justify the absence from work on the same day for trivial diseases like headaches or fever”.
For this reason, the Fimmg asks, in particular, “the issue of an official document that recognizes the subjective complaint such as ‘clinical directly observed’ and we reiterate once again the needà to introduce the self-certification for short periods of disease.”
The Fimmg, remember Milillo, in recent years it is characterized as an association “is a proactive and very open to support the innovative approaches of the national health Service”, says the leader of the medici family.
“But in this case, we need to warn the whole class from the very serious dangers that each physician may face if you go by the rules così as they are, not so much in form but rather in the interpretation of everyday and some aspects of application of the decree Brunetta”.
And not only for the impossibilityà to always refer to ‘clinical data are not directly observed né objectively documented’, but also for “the disproportionate and amicable sanctions regime, expected to the doctor in case of failures or errors, even unintentional, that would cause it to behave inappropriately defensive”.
