TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates


Berlin (dpa) - The German Foundation for Patient Protection has criticized a sluggish implementation of the program for more jobs in geriatric care. "Additional money creates so far no additional nurses," said CEO Eugen Brysch dpa .. He referred to their own information, according to which less than one million euros had been paid. That would be disastrous. The program has so far brought less than 100 places extra. The Act on Nursing Care adopted by the Grand Coalition entered into force on 1 January. This will make it possible to finance 13 000 additional jobs in the care of the elderly.
