Acute Care Nurse

by NSGEU Moderator in NSGEU Members Comments: 0

As a nurse in an acute care setting I have worked short staffed many times, too many to count. While there are times this happens, being encouraged not to fill sick calls is not only unfair to patients and staff, but potentially dangerous.

As a former nursing student who has completed various clinical practicums around HRM, I have seen first-hand how over-worked RNs are.

As a nursing student myself, we are taught the importance every day of the legal implications of nursing and patient safety.

I am a … nursing student and as a future registered nurse, the state of our health care in Nova Scotia terrifies me. I urge you to work with the NSGEU to provide a better staffing ratio.

As a Registered Nurse, I fully support the Capital Health Nurses. For too long staffing has been whittled away, putting patients at risk.

I’m a home care worker. I work in the community homes. But I’ve worked also in the continuing care sector of the field.

As a practicing RN employed by CDHA for over seven years, I am ashamed, offended and deeply concerned about the actions of my employer in these most recent negotiations with my union NSGEU, Local 97.

I have been an RN at Capital Health for nine years. During my time there, I have witnessed an enormous turnover of staff on my unit. People come and go for a variety of reasons but one consistent complaint is workload.

I do work in health care and see the effects of understaffing on a daily basis. Anyone who works in a health field entered it to do their best for people and their families.

I work in health care and I am very disappointed with the stance Capital Health has taken. I would be frightened currently to be a patient or have a love one hospitalized with the current lack of support and respect for those whom are the base of health care.
