Nurses and midwives at Naracoorte Hospital have filed a notice of dispute with the Industrial Relations Commission expressing their worries about the patient care at the facility in the south-east of South Australia.
In her statement, Nursing and Midwifery Federation branch secretary Ms. Elizabeth Dabars has clearly mentioned that the Country Health SA is under-staffing the hospital, which she doubted could put the patient's life at risk and thus should get some solutions at the earliest possible.
Professor Dabars talked about the disappointment of nurses and midwives at the facility, which she said has occurred due to the lack of progress at the facility since February.
"Nurses and midwives have been expressing their anxiety and concern for patient care arising from continuing under-staffing and failure to progress these critical issues", she said. "There seems to be no genuine interest from Country Health to resolve those outstanding issues", she added.
Protesting against same, a rally has be hosted by nurses and midwives outside the Naracoorte Hospital, in South Australia's South-East. The concerned staff aims to raise the concerns of the officials over the issue of understaffing.
She suggested that adequate numbers of nurses (and) midwives with the right combination of skills at the right time must be appointed for the services.
