    The print edition of today's Haaretz includes additional information that refutes Hadassah's statement regarding their treatment of Noa Choritz. Noa works in Yoldot Gimel (maternity--for high risk mothers and rooming-in mothers). That unit has no refrigerator for breast milk storage (rooming-in moms usually don't pump, they have their babies w/them). Noa (an internationally certified lactation consultant) did refuse to store her breast in a refrigerator where locked medications are kept (and she unlike her head nurse, etc.---did follow the rules set down by Israel's health ministry). The staff refrigerator was the only close place to store her breast milk. Nice going Hadassah Hosp.---it's no wonder (by your treatment of your nurses) that you have a nursing shortage.It's a shame that the public has to suffer due to your inflexibilty and stupidity.
