"the Skåne Region has had among the Swedish county councils that have had one of the lowest costs for hyrpersonal, in terms of the proportion of own personnel costs. However, the region's quarterly report shows that hyrkostnaderna increased almost 50 percent compared with the same period last year, writes HD-Sydsvenskan."
"the trend break started already in the autumn, and the main reason is the shortage of nurses. Most expenses have increased in Helsingborg."
"– It is absolutely disturbing. We received a hefty rise in the end of 2018, and the reason that Helsingborg stands out is the problems we had in the emergency room with patients who have to spend the night there in a shortage of beds, " says Harald Roos, sjukhuschef in Helsingborg, sweden, to the HD-Sydsvenskan."
