Heads of the Association of Internal Medicine on Mt."Today, Monday, Prof. Avishai Ellis, Prof. Nimrod Maimon, Prof. Howard Amital and their colleagues, the directors of the Department of Internal Medicine and Corona Boarding Schools wanted to convey a message to the general public: "We have a huge load on us – the internal medicine teams, who treat corona patients, flu patients and other patients in the wards. We have a heavy responsibility to save lives and help continue a normal life in the country. It is important for the public to know that we are experienced in functioning under heavy pressures and burdens, that we are also experienced in resuscitating patients and have always served as the spiritual home front of the State of Israel. We want to make it clear that the staff in the inpatient wards are dedicated and committed to the patients, despite fatigue and ongoing burnout."
The heads of the Association of Internal Medicine added: "On this side, they want to convey a message to the government: Every day that passes, without strengthening the internal departments, with the addition of doctors and nurses and strengthening the lines – weakens. We will continue to give the maximum to our patients, and we hereby call on the general public to be attentive to the Ministry of Health: adhere to the guidelines for preventing infection in the corona, get vaccinated, and show patience and restraint. While this is a persistent and severe epidemic, we will be able to withstand it".
