Nurses rally at Victoria Hospital over staffing shortages
CTV is reporting that "The BC Nurses Union organized a rally outside Victoria General Hospital Sunday afternoon, calling for Island Health and the province to address staffing shortages at the hospital. The union said a shortage of nurses, an aging population and increased patient care needs have lead to untenable conditions, across the hospital, and especially in the emergency department. Adding to the strain, Island Health said last week that the emergency room at Saanich Peninsula Hospital will close from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. for the next two months due to staffing shortages." Once again, this is a manufactured emergency Bonnie Henry has created.
The pandemic is over. Instead of hiring scab labour, all she has to do is lift the punative vaccine mandate and hire back our heroes. We have nurses here willing to work but Bonnie Henry won't let them. Dr Steven Pelech said there are many Doctors and nurses in BC that rather retire or work out of province than take a synthetic rna genetic vaccine that doesn't work. These are educated professionals. Now that the pandemic is over there is no reason for preventing them. Omicron was less severe than the seasonal flu. Bonnie Henry needs to be replaced.
