Hadassah Wards Empty as Strike Continues
Israel Hayom – The labor strike at Hadassah Medical Organization’s Ein Karem and Mount Scopus campuses continued on Thursday, as most operating rooms and outpatient clinics in addition to several other wards remained empty. Physicians announced that they would continue to function on a reduced weekend schedule, while nurses and administrative staff were working at emergency capacity.
Nurses said they were not showing up to staff outpatient clinics, diagnostic institutes and day hospitals. Operating rooms were functioning only on emergency schedules and only emergency surgeries would be carried out. Emergency rooms, intensive care units, delivery rooms and dialysis labs were functioning on a reduced schedule.
