The Union Is Upset About Nursing Layoffs

The Provincial nurses union is upset to hear of 23 layoffs to nurses working at inpatient surgery programs.

President Marilyn Quinn says they want hear from the nurses about how these changes impact patient care.

She says if they are replacing RN's with other healthcare workers and if that impacts patient care they want nurses to report it back to the union.

In addition to layoffs this week, Horizon Health also announcing some RN's will have their hours reduced which does include the Regional Hospital.
