Hospitals demand higher salaries for doctors and nurses

The Association of Hospitals in Slovakia (ANS) issued a statement on April 5 pointing out the need to increase salaries for doctors and nurses.

The ANS suggests using higher health insurance premiums paid by the state for its policyholders for the higher salaries. The association expects this measure to prevent medical staff from looking for work abroad. The ANS is afraid that if nothing is done, hospitals might soon have difficulties providing emergency services due to a shortage of qualified medical staff.
