Health Ministry critical of 'inadequate' Trajtenberg Report

September 26, 2011 19:19

The Health Ministry "welcomed" the recommendations of the Trajtenberg Report relating to geriatric nursing care, but added that they were only "very partial" and did not cover the scope of the plan for reforming such care for the elderly that it had presented over a month ago.

The Trajtenberg recommendations "do not give reasonable and adequate answers to the distress of those [disabled and elderly] who need nursing care," the ministry said. They do not deal with the problems of the severe structural problems in which many different authorities are responsible for different aspects of care and result in terrible red tape, the statement continued.
