Thousands of Victoria Nurses Poised To Resign
[link to www.news.com.au]

"THOUSANDS of Victorian nurses are poised to resign in an escalation of their industrial dispute with the State Government, the union says.

But Health Minister David Davis says it is a hollow threat from the Australian Nursing Federation (ANF) that won't materialise.

A mass meeting of 1500 Australian Nursing Federation (ANF) members today unanimously voted in favour of the mass resignations, with nurses saying they were not prepared to risk their registration or duty of care if there were no guarantees of minimum staffing levels.
Resignations are expected from February 13 to March 31.
ANF Victoria branch secretary Lisa Fitzpatrick said nurses could not safely care for patients if staffing levels were too low and added that she anticipated thousands of nurses would resign."
“Saying one government is better than another government because one only killed 10 million, as opposed to 100 million is absolute insanity.” - Shingen.

If the government can give 6.8 billion to the IMF to help bail out the EU then they should be able to staff hospitals with minimum safe levels for good patient care.

Aussie politicians recieved (granted themselves) a 30% pay increase earlier in the week.

How the hell do you expect them to pay the nurses more? The pollies do a MUCH more vital service to our community...

It sounds more like there's a nursing shortage in Australia.
