Health care in Romania is generally poor by European standards, and access is limited in certain rural areas. In 2001 health expenditures were equal to 6.5 percent of gross domestic product. In 2005 there were 1.9 physicians and 7.4 hospital beds per 1,000 people. The state-owned health care system was a target of the campaign to decentralize state services that President Traian Băsescu began in 2006. The system has been funded by the National Health Care Insurance Fund, to which employers and employees make mandatory contributions. Private health insurance has developed slowly. Because of low public funding, about 36 percent of the population’s health care spending is out-of-pocket. Bribes frequently are paid to gain improved treatment.

I don't see why somebody didn't offer to build a piano crate for him? 2x4's, plywood, hinges, stain and varnish. Just build a box and drape it with a flag and flowers.
