Dozens of people injured during frosty weekend waiting for surgery

Ljubljana, 22 January - The past weekend of snow, ice and freezing temperatures has forced doctors at the UKC Ljubljana hospital to work round the clock despite the ongoing doctors' strike to treat patients with fractures, sprains and other injuries typical of falling on ice. Twenty patients had surgery during the weekend, while at least 60 are still waiting for one.
