Italian crisis in the health sector as 53,000 nurses more needed

 Italy is facing a crisis in the health sector, as around 53,000 nurses are needed across the country. The alert is provided by the Nurses Order, according to which the active nurses are obliged to attend up to 11 patients simultaneously, even in some areas a nurse is responsible for up to 17 patients.

According to the Nursing Order, in the analyzes of all regions of Italy, the most positive results are presented only in some northern provinces where a nurse is registered for three patients. The situation is also worrying in Lombardia, where there are the best hospitals in the national level, but there are about 4800 nurses in these hospitals.

According to the authorities, these figures have serious consequences, as risks increase for the sick but also for the nurses themselves. The fact that about 40 percent of Italian nurses are forced to spend extra hours to cover the needs of patients, explains a lot.

The Order of Nurses requires the issue to be resolved and called an urgent meeting to review this situation with Health Minister Giulia Grillo, and representatives of all Italian provinces. Of course one of the alternatives to solving the crisis is the recruitment of nurses in neighboring countries, such as Albania.
