Helse Møre og Romsdal (HMR) will send health personnel, mainly intensive care nurses, to assist hospitals in the Oslo region, newspaper Sunnmørsposten writes.
CEO Øyvind Bakke of HMR says the inquiry came on Tuesday and that they are now investigating who can travel without affecting the health offer in Møre og Romsdal.
“We have already decided to send one intensive care nurse from the hospital in Volda to Akershus University Hospital (Ahus). The nurse will leave on Wednesday and be gone for ten days.
“Then we will look at the hospitals in Molde and Kristiansund and see if we can send someone from there to Oslo University Hospital (OUS),” Bakke told the newspaper.
The situation in Ahus
Ahus is the hospital in Norway with the most intensive care patients during the corona pandemic. It is also affected by employees and temporary staff from abroad being affected by closed borders.
The hospital has so far been able to “borrow” intensive care nurses from Helse Bergen, Sykehuset Sørlandet, Helgelandssykehuset, Helse Førde, and Helse Stavanger.
“At Ålesund Hospital, we now have several hospitalized COVID patients and probably no employees that we can ‘borrow’ right now,” Bakke in Helse Møre og Romsdal said.
