The Health Minister K K Ramachandran presided over the meeting and said that steps were taken to fill the existing vacancies of nurses and other employees.

There has been a chronic shortage of nurses in India more so recently due to shortage of nurses in USA and UK. Many of the nurses in middle east are from Kerala too. The nurses have left for many of these countries leaving the local hospitals facing shortages. Most of the India states have also depended on the nurses from Kerala.
