Interlake paramedics fear staff shortage puts patients at risk
from CBC News
Paramedics in Manitoba's Interlake region say they fear patient safety is being put at risk because health officials have failed to keep up with hiring. Nine paramedics met with CBC News in Selkirk, MB last week to talk about a slowdown in hiring in recent months. The paramedics say they are maxed out as more than 20 paramedic positions have been unfilled, and they say ambulances are being taken out of service way too often.
