Although the needs of the physically challenged were far more thoroughly taken into consideration when the premises were renovated at KHIM Point (e.g. door-opening request buttons and ramps), not all places in Affiliated Hospitals are as easily accessible as in the new premises of the Institute. Considering that clinical facilities of KHIM are located in the buildings constructed in Soviet Era when standards for accessibility by the physically challenged were different.
