We need nurses

My husband has been to emergency twice and hospitalized both times. The nurses who cared for him were incredibly kind and responsive to his needs. They also helped me through very trying times. I want to thank them and all the nurses for being there for us.

However, the last time we were in emergency, there was one nurse managing many, many patients.

They had to move my husband to another area where one other nurse was monitoring patients. They had to put them all together, lining the halls in gurneys, in order for each nurse to be able to take a break (as there were only two of them).

We NEED more nurses.

They’re the ones that care for us while we wait for the doctors, tests, etc. Please do not cut nurses in Ontario…we need them.
