“We can no longer bear it”
“We can no longer, either physically or mentally, work so much overtime.” This is what safety representative Jenny Bill writes in a letter from Kommunal to the employer, in which they request measures to have a sustainable work environment.
Sick leave has also increased. Last year it was a little over 7 percent and so far this year you see almost a doubling: 13 percent.
Hear safety representative Jenny Bill talk about the strained situation and hear operations manager Karl Silvhamn’s answers about patient safety and recruitment.
Some measures have been taken
According to operations manager Karl Silvhamn, certain measures have been taken. Among other things, five new assistant nurses have so far been trained and started working. The region also offers conversational support to employees who are at risk for sick leave.
But according to Jenny Bill, that’s not enough.
– It takes a long time to become an accustomed IVA nurse, we must get external help for it to be sustainable, says Jenny Bill.
