Some parents whose children were hospitalized in the pediatric Hematology unit of the Jerusalem hospital «Hadassah», announced the start of a hunger strike in protest against the inaction of the authorities, according to the 10-th channel ITV.
The parents of the patients of the Department addressed a letter to the President of Israel Reuven Rivlin. In the letter, among other things, claimed that General hospital Director Zeev Rothstein, contrary to previous agreements, has disposed to open the children’s ward for a bone marrow transplant within the adult Department.
A few days earlier it was announced that President Rivlin intervened in the crisis in «Adass», made by the Ministry of health promises that the Ministry of health will hold talks with retired doctors and will not allow the Association of pediatric Oncology with the Department of bone marrow transplantation.
We will remind, in March of this year from the Department of pediatric Hematology «Adasi» quit not less than six doctors of the highest category, including head of the Department, and several young professionals. The reason for the dismissals was the conflict with the new General hospital Director Professor ze’ev Rothstein, who decided to join the pediatric Hematology unit with the Department of bone marrow transplantation.
It was also reported that Weintraub with colleagues negotiated with the hospital «Shaare Zedek» on opening a similar office, but the hospital still haven’t got permission from the Ministry of health.
