The “Guidelines for Compliance with Mandatory Requirements in Carrying Out Medical Activities” approved by Roszdravnadzor on November 11, 2022, noted that the most common violations include the licensee’s lack of employment contracts with employees performing work (services) permitted by the license. In this regard, the article substantiates in detail the need to conclude an employment contract with every medical worker working in a medical organization, regardless of whether this organization is his main place of work or not.
The authors show that when a medical organization engages a medical worker from another medical organization to consult patients on a regular basis, it is also necessary to conclude an employment contract with him. At the same time, when a medical organization engages a medical worker of another medical organization on a paid basis for one-time/separate consultations, a civil law contract can be concluded with him. The article emphasizes that the concepts of “consultant” and “medical consultation” require their disclosure in the legislation, which determine the legal status of specialists involved in consultations and give a detailed description of medical consultations.
