The article presents the analysis of accessibility parameters related to medical care in the area of dermatovenerology in
the Republic of Bashkortostan. We studied the dynamics of such provision parameters as the number of dermatovenerologists and
the number of in-patient and day-patient beds for the period from 2013 to 2018. In the Republic of Bashkortostan the number of
dermatovenerologists has decreased from 0.68 specialists/10,000 people to 0.59 specialists/10,000 people (decrease rate 13.2%);
the amount of dermatovenerologic offices has decreased by 9.3% (from 107 to 96). We noticed the decrease in the bed capacity
due to the decrease of in-patient beds from 1.31/10,000 people to 0.94 beds/10,000 people (decrease rate 28.2%). At the same
time we shall point out the increase in the time of bed occupation: from 320 days/year to 344 days/year. Patient turnover per one
bed (further referred as bed turnover) has increased from 16.1 to 24.9 patients per year (increase rate 54.7%). The average time of
bed stay for one patient has decreased from 20.0 days to 13.8 days (decrease rate 31.0%). In the Republic of Bashkortostan (RB),
the number of day-patient beds has increased. For outpatient medical institutions the number has increased by 12.2 times (from 10
to 122 beds); for in-patient medical institutions it has increased by 13.8% (from 81 to 94 beds). For in-patient medical institutions,
the accessibility of day-patient beds has increased from 0.2 beds/10,000 people to 0.23 beds/10,000 people and for outpatient
medical institutions it has increased from 0.2 beds/10,000 people to 0.3 beds/10,000 people. By 2018, the average day-patient
bed occupation amounted to 314 days, regardless of institution type. Further study of medical care accessibility in the sphere of

Blood collection during the period of COVID‑19 infection
We evaluated the work of the Samara Regional Clinical Blood Transfusion Station, the collection and delivery
of blood components in January-April 2019 and 2020 changes in activity at the beginning of the COVID‑19 pandemic
infection. The need for blood components decreased: red blood cells – by 16,7%, platelets – by 13,0%, plasma – by 25,6%, cryoprecipitate – by 32,5%. SOKPSK provides the needs of the region’s healthcare in blood components and preparations, as well as the safety of donors and staff. For this: a) new donor recruitment methods have been introduced; b) plasma donors have been transferred to blood and platelet donors. A common pattern is the reduction in the use of medical technologies that require transfusion of blood components. According to the results of the first 4 decades of work, such a reduction in the Samara region is two time less than in other developed countries.
