Solidarity & Strength!
Southlake hospital continues to move towards a new staffing model in its ICUs, a model that will put patient care in jeopardy. A model that was tried and found to be detrimental to patient morbidity and mortality. If Southlake management is successful and given that one of the executive managers is part of the OHA, this will have serious and significant ramifications for all ICUs and step-down units across Ontario. It will be catastrophic for nurses in all TOH critical care units.
Your Site VP’s will be bringing a petition from Southlake demanding this staffing plan be scrapped. I urge you all to sign it. Protect your patients and yourselves from work environments that will be even more unsafe than they already are. Protect your licenses from unsafe work environments. Protect your healthcare colleagues.
Together we are strong. Our united voice cannot be ignored.
