“Now it is the duty of the canton to check whether the specifications have been violated,” says Antoine Chaix, the cantonal councilor from SP Schwyz to Blick. After talking to the affected, the doctor made a request in the cantonal parliament. “Due to shortage of skilled workers, health workers are currently in short supply, so the affected people have got connection points.

The office responsible for health and social affairs in Schwyz does not want to comment on the incident.
According to “Pilatus Today,” irregularities had already occurred at the Einsiedeln Hospital two years earlier. « VSAO has been supporting the hospital in the area of duty planning for a long time. Unfortunately, the hospital has not taken necessary steps to improve the situation,” the association says.
