Media statement - Wellington Hospital laminated cards

New Zealand Nurses Organisation will actively protect any nurse who in this situation has action taken against them.

The problem EDs and more widely has been around for a long time, and the failure of the employer to address the issue has left nurses with no other option but to make this initiative.

Rather than a witch hunt, we advise the employer to remedy the problem of failure to resource their emergency departments as well as the other parts of the hospital that are under resourced.
