Dr Harbi faults MED for delay in paying Bedoun nurses salary hike ‘Dept declined to send data for study’

KUWAIT CITY, May 9: Assistant Undersecretary for Technical Affairs in the Ministry of Health Dr Jamal Al-Harbi blames Medical Emergency Department (MED) for the delay in disbursing salary increment to the Bedoun nurses because the department declined to send the nurses data for study, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Dr Al-Harbi explained the Financial Affairs sector has completed the registration of Bedoun nurses working in the hospitals and centers, leaving behind Bedoun nurses at the medical emergency department due to the absence of their data.

He reassured the category the payment of increments will not be affected by the delay, indicating the sum will be paid retroactively from the date the decision was issued by Civil Service Commission (CSC), which is last February.

Meanwhile, a number of Bedoun nurses working in the hospitals and health centers are said to have submitted their databases to the Legal Affairs Department four months ago. He explained over 500 nurses are currently included in the decision and each beneficiary is expected to receive increment ranging from KD 200 to KD 920 and “in case the nurses are not paid the increment soon, a complaint will be presented to the Minister of Health Dr Ali Al-Obaidi to look into the issue”.
