Care in Crisis

Nova Scotia's

health care is

Escalating

This can’t be the new normal, something has to give.

This can’t be the new normal, something has to give.

The McNeil Liberals are the only ones in Nova Scotia that don’t see there’s an escalating crisis in Nova Scotia. Instead of fixing frontline care for patients, they just keep making things worse with bad administrative changes that only hurt workers.

And while they’re in denial, we’re all at risk:

  • Increased ER closures
  • 100,000 people without a family doctor
  • a shortage of long term care beds for seniors
  • lack of mental health services and long waits for help
  • not enough health care staff so staff are stretched too thin, overworked, not able to take breaks or book time off.

Frontline health care workers are raising the alarm that care is at a breaking point, and patients are being put at risk. They’re doing their best to give patients safe care, but short-staffing is starting to make that impossible.

Every day brings news of another Nova Scotian who has been hurt by a health care system that’s in chaos.

The McNeil government needs to support the people who are holding this broken system together, and get serious about health care.

Let’s send the McNeil Liberals a message they can’t ignore – share your health care crisis story below.

Spread the word and tell the government it’s time to fix health by sharing these images.
