      Histadrut Calls for Emergency Meeting of Hadassah Staff

      Chairman Avi Nissenkorn of the Histadrut Labor Federation's professional union branch summoned Hadassah hospital employees, Tuesday afternoon, for an emergency meeting to take place Tuesday evening at 6:00 in his office, in response to a court order freezing legal action by the hospitals' creditors for 90 days.

      Earlier the Israel Medical Federation welcomed the court decision. The doctors said they were studying the latest malpractice insurance policy taken by the hospital and were not ordering sanctions beyond the following of a Shabbat emergency-treatment-only schedule.
