Nurses at Tel Hashomer's Sheba Medical Center threatened limited functionality in all six departments of the hospital on Thursday, as part of a wider protest against what they claim are unfulfilled standards promised by the Health Ministry.

Nurses declared yesterday a labor dispute and threatened to begin striking within two weeks if there is no change in the situation.

On Tuesday, nurses at Sheba Medical Center staged a walk-out after the admission of patients exceeded maximum capacity, putting strain on the nurses' ability to see patients properly.
