A full year I have waited for good
news to come to the healthcare front!
What have we got in the interim?
Mandatory overtime has been reduced
but not eliminated.
Staffing levels are still at a critical
level much of the time with nurses overwhelmed with short staffed workloads.
Overtime remains at or near the all
time high of the last 3-5 years.
Some talk has taken place concerning
increasing student enrollment but it is not happening in reality - in fact
the Registered Psychiatric Nursing program has been all but decimated!
What do we have that's good
Check out the Commentary
page for the really big Fyke news!
Overtime almost makes it worthwhile
to be a nurse.
Regular salaries would be adequate
in an acceptable work environment but that is still a long way off.
Improved parking has been discussed
but remains limited at best and the fees keep going up and the snow is
never removed in a timely fashion.
My "Exodus" page has not kept up
to date with physicians leaving the province as the media has begun to
treat their leaving as a non-event as they slip away un-noticed we find
fewer and less qualified personal attempting ot take up the burden on behalf
of Saskatchewan citizens.
I recently reviewed my comments
from the 1999 election.
It's a bit disturbing to see how true much of my sarcasm
turned out to be!
