Miserable Conditions At Attikon Hospital

attikonWhile the Greek Ministry of Health and Social Solidarity said Attikon Hospital is a good example of proper functioning of the National Health Care System patients who have to wait hours just to be seen – and hours more to be treated with long lines curling out of the building – say it’s a dysfunctional mess and that conditions are so bad some are being treated in the hallways.
According to Iatropedia, patients are enduring unacceptable conditions because of a lack of facility stuff, doctors haven’t been paid for six months and some junior doctors have stopped working. Members of Parliament, ministers and government officials haven’t missed a paycheck, however.
Due to a dramatic lack of facility staff, 11 paramedics correspond to 750 hospitalized cases, plus 1000 emergencies, plus 1500 outpatients as well.
This situation was described by unpaid junior doctors as intolerable and as the government has ignored it.
The medical staff is in despair because they said they are being treated like slaves, unpaid, and given more and more work with fewer and fewer supplies as the government keeps cutting back on health care during a crushing economic crisis. The hospital also has an occupancy rate of 120 percent with not enough beds.
