Soňa Valášiková, a spokesperson of ÚDZS, specified that when the ÚDZS imposes a fine, it has to have discovered via surveillance that medical care was not provided properly.

“Each case is individual in terms of assessment,” said Valášiková, as cited by SITA.

The office presents the most interesting negative and positive examples in case reports.
