In a new and comprehensive survey, eight out of ten nurses say they are afraid of infecting the elderly in nursing homes with the Coronavirus.
Aftenposten has had the nationwide survey carried out by the Norwegian Nursing Association. 3,800 nurses have responded.
According to the survey, 78 percent of nurses were afraid of transmitting the Coronavirus to residents. Every fifth nurse states to fear this every single day.
– “Throughout the Coronavirus period we have received feedback from nurses who say that they are unsafe at work because they lack infection control equipment,” says Lill Sverresdatter Larsen, leader of the Nursing Association.
