PSU in solidarity with the nurses

The management of the Ministry of Health is once again being called into question as the Public Service Union expresses support for the nurses and their demands.  The union sent out a press release earlier today referring to the situation as a shame and disgrace. 

The management of the Ministry of Health is once again being called into question as the Public Service Union expresses support for the nurses and their demands.  The union sent out a press release earlier today referring to the situation as a shame and disgrace.  The nurses have been pushing on multiple issues in recent years and their requests have gone on deaf ears.  As a result, a task force was formed.  In a meeting of the task force yesterday, five demands were posed to the Ministry of Health.  Those five demands include (1) the urgent filling of the Post for the following offices: Deputy Director Health Services /Chief Nursing Officer, Assistant Deputy Director of Health Services/ Chief Nursing Officer, and the Post of the Registrar.  The second point had to do with the positioning of a nurse on the selection panel in the recruitment of nurses to fill the above-mentioned posts. The third is to have the present Acting Deputy Director of Health Services/ Chief Nursing Officer retained for a suitable period of not less than six months after the appointment of the newly selected person to that office.  The fourth is to have the ministry address the issue of nurse shortage in the country and the fifth had to do with matters pertaining to the recruitment and advancement in the nursing profession; issues that the release noted are seriously affecting nursing practice in Belize.
