In 1981, NUPE member Susan Shell was sacked f...

Paying attention to complaints can protect nurses from violence
(University of British Columbia) New UBC research shows, for the first time, a clear link between patient complaints and violence towards nurses. When nurses are overworked, they often cannot provide the high level of care they want to.
