Against the background of the complaints from MPs about the conditions prevailing at the Paphos General Hospital, yesterday's discussion took place in the parliamentary Health Committee on the issue of the autonomy of the Paphos General Hospital from the Limassol General Hospital. Patients wait in the corridors for 30-40 hours until they find a bed, while others leave the First Aid after 7 or 8 hours of waiting, are some of the issues reported yesterday, with OKYPY acknowledging that the hospital needs renovation and Note that the issue has been initiated.

Not for sample

Describing it as unthinkable to have an executive director based in Limassol and to run the General Hospital of Paphos and the City of Chrysochous remotely, DIKO MP Chrysanthos Savvidis stated that the Paphos General Hospital, which is almost 40 years old, is not new. At a time when the population needs of the province are increasing, the General Hospital of Paphos can not respond logistically, both Mr. Savvidis and AKEL MP Valentinos Fakontis argued. He also pointed out that the hospital lacks specialties, a fact that results in them being in danger, but also that lives have already been lost. According to Mr. Savvidis, there are no beds even for a sample, as well as due to the hospitalization of people positive for coronavirus, the orthopedic department currently has 8 beds out of the 24 that existed before. The DIKO MP also referred to the issue of shortages of consumables and medicines, noting that a few days ago, when a relative needed to be treated, they took sheets and medicines from home. AKEL MP Marina Nikolaou spoke about conditions of burnout, who asked OKYPY for explanations as to why the directors of the hospitals are resigning, while pointing out the need for each hospital to have its own management team.

< p> “Model failed”

PASYKI sees problems regarding the management model of the hospitals, with the president of the union Sotiris Kouma wondering what the planning was and how these directorates were made. He even noted that the problem is not the faces but the model, which according to him has failed. Expressing the belief that the Paphos General Hospital should have its own administrative management, in order to function better, Mr. Koumas argued that we should first define what autonomy is.

No understaffing

The General Hospital of Paphos is the only hospital that operates 24 hours a day and accepts all incidents, said among others the OKYPY spokesman, Charalambos Charilaou, rejecting what was heard about the understaffing of the hospital. He pointed out that after a study, all the nurses needed in each hospital were recruited, with the new recruitments reaching almost 450. According to Mr. Charilaou, 62 of the 446 nurses that were recruited in total, were not included in the OKYPY budget. however it was possible to hire them due to the savings. Speaking about the issue of autonomy, Mr. Charilaou stressed that it is one thing to have autonomy and another to change the management model of hospitals, which can be examined by OKYPY. Regarding the issue of renovation, the representative of OKYPY stated that the issue has already been launched, while the financial director of the Limassol-Paphos General Directorate, Marios Antoniou, characteristically stated that during these two years projects were done in Paphos that had never been done before. . Giving as an example the increase of the hospital's capacity in respirators, but also the dialysis ward, a project which is expected to be completed in October 2022, Mr. Antoniou stressed that the goal is to continuously upgrade the quality of services provided by the hospital. In addition to the projects that have already been launched, according to the director of the General Directorate of Limassol-Paphos, Dr. Christos Nikolaou, plans are being made for how the second floor can proceed to services that do not exist now, such as a day care center. for oncological cases.
