We in our Long-Term Care division had a policy put in place for July 1, 2021, which included: You must disclose to the region if you are vaccinated If you are not vaccinated, you must have medical regarding why you are unable to be vaccinated. If it is a humane rights reason, i.e. religion, you need to provide a new form. If you are not vaccinated, you will need to undergo regular testing and go through the education piece on the Vine.
We have picked 40 RPN’s to help develop the RPN job description with the region. We are hoping to get a bump up with the Joint Job evaluation committee, which in turn helps to increase wages.
