They presented the regulations of the Nursing Law for the practice of professionals

They presented the regulatory decree of Law No. 2175-G that establishes the conditions for the practice of Nursing throughout the province, both in the public and private sectors.

The regulations establish the responsibilities and actions that nursing professionals and non-professionals will be able to carry out in healthcare services. “Our well-deserved recognition to those who protect and care,” said Governor Capitanich on National Nursing Day

The president recalled that through the Nursing technical committee since 2021 they have been working on an agenda to improve on-call hours, the effective recovery of real wages, and ratified the commitment to guarantee and promote training based on income. “It is important that the State promote and guarantee training, the entire technical and professional training chain with the aim of serving with better capacity and that the State recognize the monetary incentives for this training,” he remarked.

In addition, he pointed out that this is associated with a process of technological transformation that has to do with the digital agenda: the centralized medical record, the electronic consultation, the global administration system. “That is why we must promote, reward and encourage the levels of actions of each of the professionals in accordance with what is determined cost-efficiency and cost-effectiveness so that the health system guarantees efficiency, quality of care, sensitivity and care in what it means to care for people and prevent diseases,” said Capitanich.

The law

The standard establishes two levels for the practice of nursing: professional and non-professional. In the case of the first level, it includes nursing graduates and professional nurses (university or technical). In the case of the non-professional level that included nursing assistants, this subsection of the law (subsection b) was repealed by Law No. 3062-G sanctioned on September 25, 2019 and promulgated by Decree No. 769 of 2020.

This last law establishes the program for the professionalization of nursing assistants: a process of progressive execution to be carried out until 2027, led by the Higher School of Public Health.

Also present at the event were the Minister of Public Health, Carolina Centeno; the undersecretaries of Health, Carlos Fernández and of Attention and Access to the Health System, Javier Cerezo; the General Director of Health Regions, Juan Gauto; the Director of Nursing, Natalia Palacio; the director of the Higher School of Public Health Brenda Leguiza.

Also present were the representatives of the College of Nursing, Carlos Daglio, of the UNCAUS Nursing career, Vilma Aguirre, directors of health regions, authorities of hospitals and health centers and representatives of unions, unions and workers’ organizations.

Centeno: “The backbone of the health system”

Minister Centeno highlighted being able to celebrate the national nursing day with the regulations of the law. “It is the most important role that the health system has, it is its backbone,” she assured, and highlighted the work carried out by the technical committee in all these years. She thanked UNCAUS for accompanying her through the nursing career and the workers’ representatives.

“For the predisposition to dialogue and the generation of consensus that allows us to advance every day towards better working conditions and guarantee better living conditions within the health services,” he said.

He stressed that the law lays the foundations for the practice of nursing in the province and shows that consensus and joint work is the path that was taken from the Government as a banner. “The rulemaking work was characterized by a broad level of discussion,” he noted.

“We must rethink how we, the workers, the professionals and the users of the system, relate to each other, think about care with a more affective relationship, with the patient at the center. This model that we propose looks at the relationship between workers and the society”, he maintained, noting that part of the problems that the health system has is that it continues to practice medicine in a society of 2022, with practices from 1950.

“We are willing to trace a path of transformation that goes from attention to care, that puts the subject at the center and stop thinking about the singular to become part of a great collective,” Centeno reiterated.
