The shortage of staff in hospitals has been an important topic in health policy in recent months. However, it seems that every now and then young nurses cannot find a place in a Luxembourg hospital. The DP MPs Gilles Baum and Gusty Graas wanted to know from the Minister of Health, among other things, how many nurses work in hospitals in this country, whether there is a reserve list and how the difficulties in finding work can be explained.

« Notre système de santé risque d’être confronté à des pénuries de personnel à l’avenir. C’est ce que révèle un rapport complet de Madame Marie-Lise Lair. Aujourd’hui déjà, de nombreux hôpitaux ont des difficultés à trouver le personnel nécessaire.

Cependant, il a été porté à notre attention que certaines jeunes infirmières et infirmiers ont des difficultés à être employés dans un hôpital après leur formation.

À ce sujet, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Combien d’infirmières et d’infirmiers ont obtenu ou obtiendront leur diplôme cette année, répartis en fonction de leur spécialisation ?
  • Combien d’infirmières et d’infirmiers sont actuellement employés dans les hôpitaux de ce pays, répartis en fonction de leur spécialisation ?
  • Combien d’infirmières et d’infirmiers peuvent être employés dans les hôpitaux ? Le recrutement est-il soumis à une limite fixe ?
  • Existe-t-il une liste de réserve dans les hôpitaux ? Dans l’affirmative, combien d’infirmières et d’infirmiers, classés par type de spécialisation, y sont inscrits ?
  • Madame la Ministre, comment explique-t-elle les difficultés rencontrées par les jeunes infirmières et infirmiers pour trouver un emploi dans un hôpital luxembourgeois ? »

Discrimination against homosexuals when donating blood

Currently, homosexual men are not allowed to have sexual relations for 12 months if they want to give blood in Luxembourg. In other countries, such as the UK, the principle of individual risk is applied to sexual behaviour, so homosexuals are not discriminated against. Democratic Party MPs Carole Hartmann and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the minister responsible whether discrimination against homosexuals when donating blood would be abolished in this country and whether the British model could be followed.
