Explanation:
Maybe this will help. "Mercantile staf" is OK to use for "merkantilt personell. "Medarbeider" is frequently translated to "co-worker", "collegue", etc. But in Norway "medarbeider" has also the meaning of a worker who is employed, in Norwegian often "tilsatt".

Sorry for omitting an "f" here. Should of course be "Mercantile staff".

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for your help and input. However I can't see how a hospital could have "Mercantile staff". Could this perhaps mean "non-healthcare staff" - in the context of the provision of healthcare?

Asker: that's useful, thanks.
