The nursing staff members, many recruited by Fr. Tomy in his home state of Kerala, come from well-qualified institutions and are licensed. The assistant nursing matron described the staff as “very keen” and willing to do any care. Nurses start at a salary of 3000R/month with increases to 6,000R/month possible. Room in the nurses’ hostel and board are provided. Nurses are committed to staying at Bel-Air Hospital for 1 ½ years, though how they are held accountable to this policy is not clear. Some nurses continue employment up to 3 years. Fr. Tomy describes recruitment and retention as difficult issues. Migration outside the country is pursued by many of the nurses.
