Band-Aid solutions no longer working amid staffing shortages at Canadian hospitals

by News Update

Staffing shortages at Canadian hospitals are getting worse by the day, leaving frontline staff overwhelmed and resulting in growing wait times for patients in need of care.

This weekend, staffing concerns shuttered more than a dozen emergency departments at hospitals across Ontario.

Experts say there are other options available for Canadians in need of treatment, including virtual appointments. But as Mike Drolet reports, even these options aren’t providing the relief that’s needed.

Hey, Global "News", HAVE YOU LOOKED INTO HOW MUCH THE STAFFING SHORTAGE HAS BEEN CAUSED BY THE FIRING OF PERSONNEL WHO DIDN'T WANT TO GET A CERTAIN MEDICAL INJECTION THAT EVIDENCE INCREASINGLY SHOWS IS MOSTLY USELESS?

Might you just FOR ONCE act like actual journalists?
