A group of Imam Reza Hospital nurses in Tabriz staged yet another protest rally in the past week.
The state-run Fars news agency covered this gathering, saying the nurses’ protest were launched last Tuesday. On the first day nurses of the Children Hospital, on the second day nurses of the Martyrs and Civil Hospital, on the third day nurses of the Razi and Imam Reza hospitals in Tabriz, on the fourth day nurses of the Razi and Martyrs Hospital, and today once again nurses of the Imam Reza Hospital staged a rally.
They are protesting the regime’s refusal to implement the law of price listing nurses’ services. “The ministry and representative office that propose this law are currently fleeing from the implementation of this bill. The representatives must have supervision following the ratification of the bill because not living up to their duties is considered a violation,” they said.
One of the nurses’ representative referred to the increasing price listing announced by officials, “The nurses have been forgotten in this new plan! After a few years an ostensible plan was introduced which actually caused more discrimination and divisions amongst nurses.”
