We take care of some of Canada's most dangerous patients.
But who's watching our backs?
Workers at Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care don’t feel safe. Violent incidents are on the rise and the building itself is a health and safety hazard.
We are asking for:
- Security personnel on all wards to respond quickly to prevent injury or reduce the severity of injury to staff
- Walk-through metal detectors
- Safe staffing levels
- Self-defense training for frontline staff
- A commitment to fix building deficiencies to make the workplace safer
Please help us by sending a tweet in support of a safe environment for workers at Waypoint to:
@Kathleen_Wynne (Premier of Ontario)
@MPPKevinFlynn (Minister of Labour)
@DrEricHoskins (Minister of Health)
