The Portuguese Nurses’ Society has warned that patients are at risk due to a shortage of nurses at the nation’s hospitals.

According to Society President Ana Rita Cavaco, nurses are exhausted and incapable of delivering quality care and in a safe manner. The Portuguese Health Service currently employs 41,000 nurses, but officials argue that an additional 30,000 are needed to meet the demands of this profession.
