Health Care Shock!

B.C. doctors prepared to fund nurses' pay


Doctors at a cash-strapped hospital in the Kootenays are proposing to pay nurses out of their own pockets to keep operating rooms running.

And why not?

If the nurses don't work, neither do the doctors, so their intentions are both self-serving and helpful to others, including the forgotten person in the equation - the famous patient.

Of course, this kind of magnanimityfariousnosity is so unprecedented that a health care administrator was heard mumbling, “I haven't heard of any precedent like this. In terms of the implications, the Interior Health Authority has to do some research."


Will they be doing that research on the weekend?
