  • Covid-positive nurses are working in NSW hospitals due to severe staffing shortages

    Covid-positive nurses are being recalled to work in hospitals across New South Wales – in breach of state health protocols – as hospital managers resort to desperate measures to staff facilities buckling under the Omicron outbreak.

    Guardian Australia has been contacted by multiple nurses working across several hospitals in the state who are alarmed at finding themselves working alongside Covid-positive colleagues, as 2,500 health workers are in isolation across NSW.

    The public hospitals span three local health districts in NSW and include major Sydney hospitals and smaller regional facilities.
