NURSES AND SUPPORT STAFF at Royal Inland Hospital — the ones who are left — are scared.
They’re scared they are going to burn out — and they might.
And they’re scared that if they talk about their workplace to local reporters or on social media, their Interior Health managers will punish them or bully them into silence.
It is notoriously difficult to get RIH nurses and support staff on the record because they fear reprisal from their employer.
