New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday asked the Centre to set up within four weeks an expert committee to look into the grievances pertaining to service conditions of nurses employed with private hospitals and private nursing homes across the country.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice A.R. Dave also asked the Centre to consider making a law based on the recommendations which would be given to it by the expert committee on the issue.

The bench, also comprising justices Shiva Kirti Singh and Adarsh Kumar Goel, then disposed of the petition filed by a nurses’ body seeking various reliefs to ensure welfare of nurses working with private medical care institutions.
