Munich (dpa / lby) - To combat the shortage of skilled workers in nursing, the CSU wants to introduce a Bavaria-wide staff pool for all nursing and medical professions in the state parliament. This emerges from a resolution of the parliamentary group that was presented in Munich on Tuesday.
Doctors and midwives should also be included in the pool. "Retirement and nursing homes should be able to use this pool in an emergency, as can hospitals or the public health service," the resolution says.
In addition, at least 100 more training positions for paramedics are to be created. "It must finally be able to be trained to meet current needs," the paper says. In the medium to long term, a master's course for midwives is also needed to secure the scientific staff for the midwifery courses. In addition, the association of caregivers in Bavaria is to be strengthened by mandatory registration of caregivers.
In addition to strengthening training in Germany, the recognition of foreign qualifications in health professions needs to be accelerated.
Aside from its own plans for Bavaria, which the parliamentary group is subject to “existing positions and funds”, the CSU parliamentary group is demanding various measures from the federal government to strengthen the health and care system.
Among other things, the federal government must pay out 500 million euros annually for climate-protecting investments in the planned hospitals and university clinics. Reforms are also needed in health and long-term care insurance in order to protect contributors from rising costs.
