Completely undervalued’: Nurses nationwide take their strike to hospital picket lines. Auckland City Hospital registered nurse Gui Restall said it was a “human rights issue”.
“It has been ongoing a number years with unsafe staffing, and remuneration that does not reflect our skills, education and level of responsibility.” Over her more than 20 years in the profession, Restall said there had been increasing pressures on nurses.”We go home crying, it is so stressful. Many nurses do hours and hours unpaid overtime.
“The population has expanded, there are more patients coming in who are more sick, we have more diverse communities, we work with more advanced technology and medications, more protocols and regulations.
“It is challenging, and it requires more nurses.”
I work with a team of hard working, dedicated, committed and compassionate wonderful nurses who provide service for our patients beyond the call of duty each day. All our nurses most definitely deserve much more.
