We’ve all been there.
Sick. Hurt. Worried. Exhausted.
And in those times, we’ve had someone to count on when we’ve needed it most. Helping with recovery, offering advice and support, and ensuring we have the best care possible at every step.
Nurses are a critical part of safe, compassionate, consistent patient care.
So what happens when there aren’t enough nurses? Or the facilities they work in are underfunded and overcrowded? When they don’t have enough time to spend with each patient?
Changes imposed by Premier Pallister and his government mean nurses in Manitoba’s health facilities are being stretched to their limits. Wait times are up and the amount of mandatory overtime in some facilities has almost tripled. Increasing workloads mean nurses have less time to spend with each patient.
The situation is only getting worse with more shortsighted cuts on the horizon.
And when the government cuts frontline services, they’re cutting your access to the best care possible – and putting you and your family at risk.
