Pasyno considering legal measures after worker attacked


Nurses union Pasyno on Sunday threatened to take legal measures against the ministry of health and the state health services Okypy after another member was attacked while treating a patient, this time in Limassol.

The union slammed the “unacceptable and impermissible” beating up of an ambulance worker in Limassol and called on Health Minister Michalis Hadjipantela to take immediate action to protect all nursing staff.

It said it will meet in the coming week to examine the situation and taking legal measures against the ministry and Okypy to ensure safety in the workplace.

“Once again we are witnesses to a member of the nursing staff being beaten up. We believe these acts are unacceptable against staff on duty,” the union said.

It was not immediately clear to what incident the union was referring.We will not tolerate, it added, the continuation of the situation at the expense of our members.

“We call on the minister to proceed with taking immediate measures without delay before we mourn victims. It is not the first time that a member of the nursing staff has been attacked while on duty, and even inside an ambulance,” it said.
