Nurses demon­strate in sup­port of dis­ci­plined col­leagues

The Packet (Clarenville) - - Editorial -

It was a show of sol­i­dar­ity.

Nurses across the prov­ince braved the cold last Wed­nes­day to demon­strate in sup­port of their col­leagues.

Six nurses with Cen­tral Health have been given sus­pen­sions or warn­ings for re­fus­ing non-nurs­ing du­ties, in a cam­paign to put pres­sure on health au­thor­i­ties and the prov­ince to re­cruit more nurses to the prov­ince and ne­go­ti­ate a bet­ter con­tract.

The non-nurs­ing du­ties cam­paign has been on­go­ing since Oc­to­ber 1.

It’s made a dif­fer­ence, says Teena Nose­wor­thy. “Nurses have more time at the bed­side for pa­tient care.”
