Hospi­tal staff who helped dog sus­pended

Montreal Gazette - - CITY -

Four Que­bec City hospi­tal em­ploy­ees have been sus­pended af­ter com­ing to the aid of a dog stuck in a hot car this sum­mer.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred in early July at Que­bec City’s L’En­fant-Jé­sus Hospi­tal.

Em­ploy­ees brought the dog into an air-con­di­tioned of­fice for about four hours and gave it wa­ter. Two sep­a­rate unions that rep­re­sent the four em­ploy­ees said their mem­bers re­ceived sus­pen­sions rang­ing be­tween three and eight days.

A spokesman for the hospi­tal cen­tre said in a state­ment the em­ploy­ees were sanc­tioned be­cause they con­tra­vened rules that for­bid most an­i­mals from be­ing in­side the hospi­tal.
