SHORTAGE OF NURSES MOORA. May 22: Because of a shortage of nursing staff, the Moora Hospital Board was re cently compelled to close the hospital maternity wing. Later, a Press reference to the position resulted in temporary relief being provided, and the maternity wing was re-opened. At its last meeting, the board received resignations from two sisters and when these take effect in a fortnight's time, the matron will be the only fully qualified member of the staff. The board will have to close the maternity wing unless other qualified staff offer their services.
