Oleksandr Borys, a junior researcher of the Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise gave a comment to UA: Pershyi TV Channel.
The topic of discussion was the conditions for providing services by geriatric boarding houses. On November 16, a fire in a nursing home in the Dnipro region killed 5 people in such a boarding house. Also, on January 21 this year, a similar institution in Kharkiv killed 15 people as a result of a fire.
According to Oleksandr Borys, there are many questions about the legal status of such institutions and the conditions for providing services, including medical services, to people in geriatric houses.
In addition to the legal status and living conditions of their residents, the program paid attention to the state of fire safety of homes for the elderly.
Most of the buildings in which geriatric services are provided are in the status of a residential building, in which no economic activity is officially conducted, said Oleksandr Borys.
