The Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) is celebrating an announcement by the provincial government that nurses will be included in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) legislation.
“We are ecstatic that the government has decided to do the right thing and include front-line nurses in the presumptive legislation,” said ONA Provincial President Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN. “ONA has always known that nurses are in every way first responders and vulnerable to developing post-traumatic stress disorder. It’s a great day for nurses who work so hard to provide quality patient care.”
