Warning over nursing shortage
(07-15 13:15)

The Association of Hong Kong Nursing Staff says the shortage of nurses in public hospitals will only worsen if the government fails to act.
It said nurses' workload was increasing with the rising demand for medical services.
Lawmaker and chairman of the association, Joseph Lee Kok-long, said the problem reflects poor planning.
He said, unlike in the past, there's no standard ratio of nurses to patients.
Members of the association handed in a petition signed by more than 10,000 nurses to the Health Bureau. --RTHK
