Because of special burdens in the corona crisis, nurses in hospitals are now to receive a bonus of up to 1,000 euros – just like those already employed in geriatric care.
The statutory health insurances (GKV) will provide 100 million euros to pay one-time premiums for up to 100.000 clinic employees to be paid. This was announced by the GKV-spitzenverband and the german hospital association. Federal health minister jens spahn (CDU) buried the plan and wants to implement it. The trade union verdi, on the other hand, criticized it as a "minimal solution".
