In The Name of ALLAH The Almighty

Violation of Sindh Government Notification 2008 by Private Hospitals of Sindh.

Sindh private hospital nursing staff appeals to the concerned sindh government authorities to kindly make a note of the salary package being paid to the nursing staff by private hospitals of Sindh. It is noted that many private hospitals are not paying salaries according to government notification of basic salary scale declared in September 2008.

Therefore Majority of nurses are forced to perform double duties to make their both ends meet. Many private hospitals pay salaries to nurse’s equivalent to housekeeping staff. As compared to government hospitals private setup are paying 40% of that package e.g. if in government offers 25000 rupees for 6 hours duty, then on other hand private setup pays 6000 to 8000 rupees only.

Due to less salary packages migration of nurses to abroad is hard to control. For instance An American Hospital (Washington health care hospital) pays 3900 $ to a staff nurse for six hours alternate duty which is equaliant approximately to pak currency Rs 3, 43,000. Which is not hard to understand that no one wants to loose the opportunities of giving their family a good life style, instead of working for just 6000 to 8000 rupees only here in Pakistan?

We humbly request to concern authorities to take effective measures and direct the private hospitals to act upon the notification of 2008 for the betterment of health care services, so that our trained and skillful nursing staffs apply their expertise in our own country instead of abroad.
