Gaza hospital appeals for nursing reinforcements

Jan. 18, 2009 8:41 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 18, 2009 8:41 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Nasser Medical Compound in Khan Younis issued an urgent appeal for nurses in the Gaza Strip, according to a statement.

The hospital said it is calling on Arab nursing unions and international organizations working in healthcare to "urgently send nursing staff" to the Gaza Strip to fill a large void there.

A number of nurses, specifically in surgery, intensive care and emergency services, are particularly in need due to fatigue brought on by three weeks of intense violence in Gaza.

The appeal came as a Jordanian delegation of medical staff arrived to treat the injured in Israel's war on Gaza.

According to Bassam Musalaman, the head of the compound, the delegation was sent from a Jordanian nursing union after coordinating with counterparts in Khan Younis.

Musalaman noted that the Jordanian delegation is composed of four nurses now working "around the clock" to aid Palestinian staff.
