The city council of Caldas Novas, in Goiás, formalized the new hiring regime for around 500 health professionals in the municipality. With the change, employees will have a formal contract and access to all labor rights, which did not happen in the previous contract, due to accreditation.
At the ceremony, which took place this Friday (2), uniforms, badges, coats and food vouchers were handed out to those hired. According to Mayor Kleber Marra (MDB), the change will have positive impacts on the hired employee and patients.
“Within our policy of humanized care for patients, we understand that enabling the hiring of these health professionals by guaranteeing the CLT bond will produce improvements in the quality of the service that will reach the citizen, because these professionals will have security, such as the right to a period of rest without loss of salary, in addition to the feeling of appreciation that gives more motivation to any worker”, he stated.
According to the city hall, professionals from 19 specialties will be hired: doctors, nurses, nursing technicians, physiotherapists, dentists, oral health assistants, exam assistants, speech therapists, veterinarians, psychologists, nutritionists, pharmacists, pharmacy assistants, social workers, technicians in radiology, immobilization technicians and surgical assistants and instrumentalists.
The mayor also stated that he will bring more investments to the sector. “Caldas has been growing a lot, so the health units needed to grow. Today we are expanding the Children’s Emergency Room, a hospital that currently serves children and mothers, and we are transforming it into a reference center for women and children, a new maternity ward, a new surgical center”, he said.
Accreditation is a way of hiring health professionals to work in public units. The law allows this type of hiring when it is not possible to hold a public competition to fill vacancies, for example. It is also permitted when the demand for services is greater than the supply and there is the possibility of hiring all interested parties.
The ceremony that will formalize the new hiring regime is scheduled to take place this Friday (2). At the event, the city hall will hand out uniforms, badges, coats and food vouchers to those hired.
