Investigations on the Sterilization Concession are deepened, SPAK asks Ogerta Manastirliu for two hours, from the change of the concession contract, to the abusive increase in the cost for the state budget, here are the decisions that can sink it

Investigations on the Sterilization Concession are deepened, SPAK asks Ogerta

The new head of SPAK, Altin Dumani, has begun to deepen investigations into the "scorching" files with abuses in health that will lead to the imprisonment of very high officials. Scandals from this ministry over the years will lead to the imprisonment of "big heads". SPAK is preparing arrest warrants for all the officials involved in these abuses, and Ogerta Manasitrliu may also go to prison. The signals were given yesterday, after the minister of Edi Rama appeared yesterday at the Special Prosecutor's Office to be questioned about the issue of sterilization at the time when she was running the Mother Teresa University Hospital Center (QSUT). Manastirliu stayed inside SPAK premises for 2 hours and 15 minutes. This criminal proceeding for Manastirli was registered last year. Journalist Adriatik Doçi announced in November 2023 that, in addition to Manastirli, former General Secretary Gelardina Prodani is also at risk of imprisonment. They are being investigated by SPAK for the increase in the cost of the sterilization concession and the abusive implementation of the contract with the concession company SaniService. The investigations have started after a criminal report for the alleged criminal liability of Manastirli and Prodan during the implementation of the contract for the sterilization service of surgical instruments with a 10-year term.

Seized documents

Representatives of SPAK and BKH, on behalf of the investigation, have seized documents from the Ministry of Health. According to the criminal complaint, the pair Manastirliu-Prodani abused their duty and committed the crime of corruption in cooperation, by changing the concession contract and increasing the cost in an abusive manner. Specifically, on January 15, 2020, the Ministry of Health headed by Ogerta Manastirliu and represented by the General Secretary Geraldina Prodani, according to the report, changed the contract with the sterilization service company SaniService, providing for the expansion of the service and the increase of the cost for the state budget . By amending the concession contract of 2015, Ogerta Manastirliu, through her representative, Geraldina Prodani, provides that the company SaniService can offer surgical sets beyond the ceiling defined in the contract, 63 thousand operations per year, applying a discount of 25% of the price for any service with equipment for operations beyond the number 63 thousand. In the amended contract, this change is argued with the effectiveness of the sterilization concession as well as the need to increase the service. So, according to Manastirli, the concession had borne fruit and as such should be expanded. This intervention in the contract has increased the cost and the bill for the state budget, a product of Albanian taxes. The biggest abuse consists in another decision.

scandals

Ogerta Manastirliu is suspected of having allowed the embezzlement of 7 million euros in 2018, through the use of high-level sets of surgical equipment worth 140,000 Lek instead of 3,000 Lek sets of equipment for removing pegs, changing bandages for wounds , some modest cuts, etc. Ilir Beqaj left as Minister of Health on March 12, 2017, when the number of operations was about 4 thousand under the provision of surgical equipment service by the concessionary sterilization company. Today, the number of operations has reached over 400,000. On March 16, 2017, Erion Manohasa, then Director General of the Mandatory Health Care Insurance Fund, notified QSUT through a letter that the high-end and expensive sterilization service should be extended beyond operating rooms, covering any ambulatory material sterilized by steam or low temperature, used for wound treatment, bandage change, light cuts, etc. So, the paperwork consists of using the sterilization service both for an operation in the room and to remove some pen or change a wound, increasing the cost. Specifically, the equipment sets would be used both in and out of operating rooms.

Behind the Scenes

The sterilization contract provided for 5 types of services. 1. Sterilized instruments for interventions with high complexity, worth about 400 thousand Lek per package. 2. Sterilized instruments for interventions with medium complexity at a price of 220 thousand old lek per package. 3. Sterilized instruments for interventions with low complexity worth 140 thousand ALL. 4. Steam packs, for minimal intervention outside the operating rooms, worth about 3 thousand Lek or 3 USD. 5. Low-temperature packages for minimal intervention outside the operating room, worth about 10,000 Lek or 10 USD. Manohasa's order stipulates that level 3 with a cost of 140,000 lek should be used instead of level 4 for minimal intervention at a cost of 3,000 lek. Instead of being paid $3 per pack, it was paid $140 per pack because doctors were prohibited from using steam and low temperature packs by Manohasa's order. On August 15, 2018, i.e. 18 months later, the new director of the Compulsory Healthcare Insurance Fund, Eduart Ahmeti, rejected Manohasa's letter of March 2017, which increased the cost of the service. Eduart Ahmeti orders that the equipment sets for the three degrees of complexity (high, medium and low) be used only in the operating rooms, due to the cost. There is no logic that a set worth 140,000 ALL was used, for example, to remove nails or treat a wound. This maneuver of Manohasa, then overthrown by Eduart Ahmeti, has brought an additional cost of 7 million euros, money that came from the state budget, therefore from the pockets of Albanians. During the consumption of this abuse, Ogerta Manastirliu was in charge of the Ministry of Health, who put her "head in the sand", at least abusing her duty. In the criminal complaint, in addition to their defendants, a property investigation is also requested for Ogerta Manastirli, Gelardina Prodani and Erion Manohasa.
