Manitoba’s nurses are committed to caring.
Tell the Manitoba government to step up for nurses and patients.
Nurses are here for all of us, doing everything possible to keep Manitobans safe. In partnership with all health care workers, they’re on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, working around the clock to stop its spread and care for those who are infected.
But they can’t do it alone. Nurses need your help to convince the Pallister government to support frontline care providers.
Many nurses do not have access to the personal protective equipment (PPE) they need. Without the right equipment, they’re being put into harm’s way.
When nurses get sick, they can’t take care of patients. And the last thing Manitoba needs now is an even greater shortage of nurses.
The situation is getting worse and Premier Pallister has promised more cuts are on the way.
Protecting health care workers protects us all. Other provinces are making progress by allowing nurses to use their clinical judgment for accessing PPE, and providing paid sick leave for ALL health care workers exposed to COVID-19.
Yet Manitoba is lagging behind. It’s time for the Pallister government to do better, and work with nurses to put patients first.
