According to the health professionals’ diagnosis, the excess of dirt and the lack of cleaning items, such as paper towels, compromised the quality of the patients’ treatment.


With salaries in arrears, 2,200 outsourced workers hired to clean public hospitals are on strike this Wednesday (09/14). The workers’ base salary is R$1,287.96.

According to the category, the delays are being chronic. “Until when will outsourced workers cleaning the public health network receive back wages?”, asked the president of Sindiservices-DF, Maria Isabel.
