D.The shortage of nurses in hospitals has been high for the past one year. Six per cent of seats in ordinary wards and twelve per cent in intensive care units are vacant, said Gerald Gauss, president of the German Hospital Association (DKG). ) “It’s a very difficult situation, especially in times of constant high levels of stress,” Cass explained.
“We have no reserves in practice to cover the staff shortage,” the DKG boss told RND. That is why some serious abilities had to be temporarily or permanently canceled during epidemics.
In the past year, the intensive care unit has failed to fill 8,000 jobs and every eighth specialized vacancy. It took an average of 21 weeks for a new serious specialist to fill a vacancy. Five years ago, clinics only advertised 3,100 additional positions.
In normal wards, about 14,000 vacancies for nursing staff registered in clinics will be vacant nationwide by 2021. Five years ago, according to Gaß, there were only 3,900 vacancies. In 2021 it will take an average of 17 weeks for a skilled worker to be hired.
Staff shortages have worsened for a variety of reasons: child boomers have gone on retirement or early retirement, Cass told RND. In addition, many employees stayed longer on parental leave and then longer part-time. Despite the shortage of doctors in rural areas, nurses are moving from cities to rural areas due to high rents.
Nurses also leave their jobs due to excessive workload, which increases the workload of other staff.
