To care for nurses is to care for patients.
Tell the Manitoba government to step up. Safety for care providers is not negotiable.
Nurses are here for all of us, doing everything possible to keep Manitobans safe. 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.
Too many nurses don’t 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 nurses protects us all. It’s time for the Manitoba government to follow Ontario, Alberta and BC by agreeing to ensure adequate health and safety controls for nurses and care providers, and allowing nurses to use their clinical judgement to determine the controls necessary in the line of duty.
What can you do to help?
- Stay home, save lives.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Keep at least 2 metres away from others.
- Tell Premier Pallister that protecting nurses and health care workers protects us all.
