Healthcare Recruitment and Retention
Whereas emergent and acute health care is failing throughout Saskatchewan; and
Whereas the recruitment and retention of health care professionals like RN’s and LPN’s is difficult and has a dramatic effect on the ability to provide emergent and acute health care Province wide; and
Whereas S.H.A. does not allocate sufficient resources towards recruiting and retaining RN’s and LPN’s;
Therefore be it resolved that SUMA advocate the ministers of Health and Rural and Remote Health to have the Saskatchewan Health Authority or independent firm immediately develop and implement a long-term recruiting and retention plan to adequately provide and maintain emergent, acute, and long-term health care throughout all of Saskatchewan hospitals, health centers, and long-term care homes.
