more and more news reports have in recent years focused on the shortcomings in the healthcare system. Sjuksköterskebrist, mass layoffs, complaints about the working environment, closed beds, the constant overcrowding and the recurrent crisis that will over the christmas and summer because of the closed beds are just a few headlines.
Patients are forced to leave the intensive care unit because of lack of space, and moved over to a ward in a too early stage – a situation that can escalate and ultimately injury to the patient. At the same time, a person can get information through the mail if that hen has got a brain tumor, which vårcentralen say is because we have so many hyrläkare inside. These are just a few examples of how verkligenheten looks.
working fits well with the image that I have. But the added services are administrative assignments to ensure competence, which is a necessary evil in order to retain skilled nurses.
the Stockholm Region has several acute hospitals are paid for with tax dollars. If a nurse currently working in a ward looking for work in any of the other hospitals, they can manage to raise your salary by several hundreds of pounds, despite the fact that looking for the same type of work and under the same employer. This is the only way to get a löneförändring.
If you do not manage to recruit a nurse to use external companies. A nurse who has been finished in about eight months with a monthly salary of 27.000 dollars can go to the external manning and have his salary doubled. Midwives have for the coming summer been offered 95.000 sek a month for work in the county of Västernorrland.
when the lack of space is the greatest, is offered to staff to work even more against extra payment. How is it that we can afford to pay huge sums of money to external agency and extrapassersättning, while we can't afford to make a wage distribution which could result in staff stops?
That raised while entry-level salaries for nurses, but not for those who choose to stay and then end up only a few hundred dollars over a new graduate – is in my eyes unacceptable.
to get a change and turn the negative trend should the decision be made to abolish the external agency. Take the money and invest in sustainable health care, which makes the profession attractive again, where the staff not only feel that you have time to perform a good work but that there is also a progression, if one decides to remain at his place of work.
tired of working in the dysfunctional hälsosjukvårdssystemet. The only question is how far we are prepare to go?
Should we continue to have public health care or should we switch entirely to something similar to the private health care? That health care costs money, we know, but is it not better if we bet more on a long-term solution that in the end will cost less instead of paying extreme salaries to external staffing?
The current situation requires a correctly to stabilize the health care system. Take all the salaries centrally, and to provide a distribution of earnings according to the kompetensstegen.
must be a politician together with hospital management to cooperate in these matters, and urgently develop a plan for a long-term system where we can offer each individual a good and safe care.
the Purpose of this letter is to highlight the sjukvårdsyrket with the hope to regain yrkesstoltheten. Unfortunately, we ended up in this situation because of the appalling conditions.
