HelathMin Pintea: I’ve called managers of protesting hospitals for talks.
Minister of Health Sorina Pintea announced on Monday having called for talks managers of the hospitals where protests take place. "I have called on the managers to have a discussion. I have already had this discussion with the Bagdasar Hospital manager, we have reviewed a little of pay bonuses as well as the allocation method. I think there will be no special problems, but eventually we are applying a law. The government has pledged for increased pay to physicians and nurses. For those who do not fit into the pay scale until 2022, there are certain decreases that we try to balance out, but we have to see exactly what the situation is for each hospital. I have called them, even though we have to enforce a law, a law that has led to wage increases as well that I would like you to highlight, because there have been significant increases in the pay to the medical profession, namely doctors and nurses," Pintea told Digi 24 private broadcaster. Asked about who should explain the issues related to the application of the bonuses amidst dissatisfaction with the fact that these days only the base pay is paid because the financial departments would not be able to calculate, Pintea replied: "It is the law that has to do the explaining, as in the end it is about the correct interpretation of the law, that is why I chose to get personally involved, though once again, doing that is not the health minister's business, but because there is a problem, I chose to discuss with each of them to see what the issues and ways of applying the law are. " She added that it is not obligatory for all employees to be paid the bonuses in full. In her opinion, as long as a hospital has staff costs in excess of 80 percent, that is a problem. Nurses and stretcher-bearers of the the Bagdasar Arseni Hospital protested against income cuts on Monday. According to medical sources, the Marius Nasta Institute employees were also expected to stage protests over cuts in wage bonuses. During the previous week, protests were also staged at the C. C. Iliescu Institute and in the St. John Hospital in Bucharest. AGERPRES (RO - author: Iulia Carciog, editor: Claudia Stanescu; EN - author: Corneliu-Aurelian Colceriu, editor: Adina Panaitescu)
