Julie Ali This is the reason we don't have professionals pointing out problems in the workplace or in the community-you get pushback from the professional organization or the employer. Far safer to simply stay silent. This is why the Protection for Persons in Care legislation in my opinion is useless in such cases. No protections for advocates, or professionals complaining about problems in say the continuing care facility. What is needed is for families to keep speaking but because of retribution such as eviction, banning and lawsuits they are pretty much too afraid to speak of issues raised by this nurse. The cone of silence is everywhere in Alberta and seemingly everywhere else in Canada.

Anita Simaganis So she gets shut down for voicing a valid point (people's lives involved) gets sanctioned but over in ON there is a nurse being charged with 8 x murders, who was disciplined for not being able to administer meds correctly. She was allowed to go on to different jobs after being let go. Makes a person wonder how often this stuff is going on & people are feeling the gag order? Hmmmm I don't have too much confidence in this industry Not to mention the financial cutbacks
