It happens because the need is great, says the FNV driver. “There is an enormous staff shortage, a high level of absenteeism, while the demand for care is increasing. The pressure to complete the schedules is simply high.”
In Belgium, too, it happens in regions where the need is high, such as in the province of Liège. Doctor Steven Laureys of the university hospital in Liège told the NOS yesterday that it is a “very difficult situation”. His hospital is full, the staff are exhausted and sometimes infected doctors and nurses go to work.
“Yes, some of them have been tested positive, but we really cannot miss them. If you can come to work and you are not sick, then we ask people if they come to work”, says the Liège doctor.
It is not without risk for the patients. FNV Zorg & Welzijn has contacted a number of employers in the healthcare sector about this and the union will soon also discuss this with Minister Van Ark for Medical Care.
