http://cnw.ca/qRgU9B Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA) President Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN, takes the ice bucket challenge for ALS and to let the public know that 58 Registered Nurses have been cut at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, her hospital. Linda is challenging any ONA Bargaining Unit President who has seen RN cuts in their facility/bargaining unit to do the ice bucket challenge and to mention in their video how many RN cuts have occurred. http://twitter.com/OntarioN... | http://facebook.com/Ontario...
Short funding by the Ontario government means The Scarborough Hospital has cut $17 million in services this year.
Merged hospitals in Scarborough and Ajax would need to find $28 million more in service cuts by 2014/2015.
Our families count on these local hospital services.
Let's tell our elected representatives to stop the cuts.
