Stretchers strewn on Turin hospital staircase amid ‘crisis’

(ANSA) – TURIN, APR 1 – Patients in stretchers were piled up
on a staircase in a Turin hospital this week as nurses
complained they were on the verge of collapse amid a
COVID-induced “crisis” at the hospital.
    Pictures of the stretchers at the Maria Vittoria Hospital went
viral.
    It was just the latest case of overcrowding in Piedmont
hospitals including those at Chivasso and Rivoli.
    Piedmont Governor Alberto Cirio went to the hospital to assess
the situation for himself.
    Regional health pointman Luigi Genesio Icardi said “the
situation is under control”.
    But nurses union Nursind said these cases were growing ever more
frequent.
    “After a year of pandemic in the hospitals, nothing has
changed,” said the head of the Piedmont branch of Nursind,
Francesco Coppolella.
    NAS health and hygiene police are continuing to monitor the
situation in the region’s hospitals. (ANSA).
