It is known that the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights in her annual and special reports in appropriate sections concerning realization of the national preventive mechanism constantly emphasized necessity of amendments of statutory documents for residential care facilities.

In December this year the Government of Ukraine approved new Standard statutes concerning psychoneurological boarding school and children's house boarding school.

In these statutes providing of health care is ensured by two ways. The first – implementation of economic activity concerning medical practice, the second – the conclusion of contracts with healthcare institutions or health workers. The house boarding school can perform economic activity concerning purchase, transportation, storage, use and destruction of the drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors allowed for use in Ukraine.

At the same time in connection with elaboration and implementation of state standards of social services, creation of various departments (intensive and palliative care, the supporting accommodation etc), considering individual needs of wards, is foreseen in statutes.

Specialists of Department for realization of the national preventive mechanism following results of monitoring visits to psychoneurological boarding schools repeatedly indicated that abuse in an expenditure of personal means of incapacitated persons, when their tutelage or guardianship are carried out by boarding school, or, on the contrary, – not expenditure of means because of fear of inspection bodies was one of system problems in such organizations.

"In statutes approved by the government the question is an elaboration of an order of use of pensions and benefits of wards. Besides, provisions standardized the indication and a contraindication for putting of the person in a boarding school that was absent in the previous editions of standard statutes. Also the list of the organizations exercising control over activities of boarding schools is enlarged, – the employee of Department for realization of the national preventive mechanism of the Secretariat of the Commissioner Ms. Iryna Sergienko emphasized.

Let's remind, Ms.Valeriya Lutkovska focused a special attention on the mentioned problematic issues in the application to the Prime minister of Ukraine Mr.Volodymyr Groysman.
