The relatives of the patients of the Moscow hospitals got the opportunity around the clock to visit their loved ones in intensive care units and intensive care unit (Picu). This was reported on the website of the Department of health.

To get to the office only in special sterile clothes, and with observance of silence and purity. Visit the patient will be able no more than two people at a time.

For many years, the problem of access of relatives in the intensive care unit can not decide. For example, parents might not see their children for months or even years, patients no one released, and all this time they were all alone. Later formally, the family visits were permitted by the order of Ministry of health, but in practice it is performed only rarely, as were Advisory and not mandatory.

In 2017 in some Moscow hospitals, launched a pilot project for cooperation of medical staff and ICU patients, which tested the new rules for visiting the sick. In the beginning of 2018 in the state Duma was finally introduced a bill on free access of relatives in the resuscitation and intensive therapy.
