“Sixteen nurses infected in the last 72 hours at the Cardarelli in Naples: 11 of which from the transport service, the car park, and 5 from the Emergency Medicine department. After a false apparent calm, masked by the initial success of the vaccination campaign which had brought Campania to the top for the administration carried out, the sad topicality to which we are all accustomed re-explodes, in a Region and in particular in a Province, that of Naples, targeted by the consequences of a wicked health policy ». This is what he underlines Antonio De Palma, National President of the Nursing Up Union, the Italian nurses union.
«The staff cuts – it is observed – and the total lack of hiring and the renewal of old structures absolutely not prepared to face the pandemic emergency, as well as the chronic lack of personnel, too many precarious, are multiplying the cases. Nurses write to us and call us every day. We also expect the minister to intervene ”, underlines Antonio De Palma, National President of the Nursing Up Union, the Italian nurses’ union.
