Not considering own status

According to the hospital, the fine will apply from February 2019 to January 2020.

This was the period when the physician was transferred from Flekkefjord to Kristiansan.

Mayvolt did not assess his own position as a result of the fine.

– No, I really considered and continued the important work for improvement with our talented staff.

He says they have a list of 84 improvement points, most of which have now been completed.

The company now receives the penalty, which eventually falls on the taxpayer. What do you think about it?

This is a contradiction. At the same time, the rules will be the same, not a hospital decision, says Mavold.
