With a polar wave, winter arrived in our country and that generates even more concern about the availability of critical beds, especially in pediatric ones.
Since the start of the pandemic, healthcare centers, both public and private, have had to strengthen their work teams to deal with the increase in hospitalizations, especially in critical patient areas.
This season, despite the fact that there is no longer a quarantine, has not been the exception, since the circulation of respiratory viruses, such as syncytial, keeps the authorities and medical experts on alert.
The occupancy of critical beds is around 90% and the assistance centers return to work to the limit. How has this impacted health professionals?
According to data from Trabajando.com, since the start of the pandemic, on average, these professionals have increased their salary by 13.60%.
The Manager of Marketing and Customer Experience of Trabajando.com, Rodrigo Gorostiza, commented on the reasons for the phenomenon: “In general, roles associated with health careers have been in great demand in the last two years. Needless to say, Covid generated tremendous pressure to hire medical professionals. Initially, doctors and nursing technicians were the most required, but as the pandemic has been more controlled, people have turned to consult for various health issues that had been postponed.
The professionals who have increased their salary the most are medical technologists (33%), armories (30%), midwives (26%), nurses (26%), nursing assistants (25%), occupational therapists (24%) and nutritionists (23%), among others.
However, the professionals who are ahead are the dental surgeonwho between 2020 and 2022 increased their remuneration by 53%.
The relaxation of health measures and the increase in patient confidence have made dentists increase the care and income they receive in recent months.
