Shuffling health-care workers around won't solve COVID crisis: Sask. nurses' union president
Zambory also took issue with a government press release that described health-care workers as part of ongoing "inventory management."
"When we're described as inventory, care becomes commodified, and where's the humanity in that?"
She said there is a finite number of health-care workers, no matter where you put them.
"We're just shuffling these scarce resources around without any additional measures to slow community spread," Zambory said.
Tracy Zambory says it appears the Saskatchewan Health Authority doesn't have decision-making authority anymore in how its workforce should be used, after the premier announced the province's COVID-19 response is being centralized through the Provincial Emergency Operations Centre.
