Port nurse needed, again

  • Mar. 14, 2008 5:00 p.m.

Northern Health is looking for a new nurse to work in the Port Clements clinic for the third time in as many years. Masset hospital site administrator Kim Mushynsky said clinic nurse Lorne Boudreau has resigned the position as of April 4 after working in Port for just less than a year. “We know of the impact that this will have, given the wide range of health roles that the nurse in the local clinic provides,” Ms Mushynsky wrote to Port council this week. “Northern Health is actively recruiting for this position both internally and externally. We are also looking at ways to make change that may help stabilize staffing, reduce turnover and increase job satisfaction.” It seems that one of the challenges with the Port posting is its isolation, Ms Mushynsky said, not that the community is isolated but that the clinic nurse works alone and has no opportunity to interact with colleagues. Ms Mushynsky assured the community that weekly physician visits will continue every Tuesday.
