Nova Scotia Nurses’ Union proposes legislation to improve care in nursing homes

The Nova Scotia Nurses’ Union (NSNU) has developed draft legislation that primarily addresses the need for more hours of care in nursing homes across the province. If passed, the new standards would ensure long term care (LTC) facilities provide higher levels of licensed staffing.

The goal is to see an immediate improvement in quality of care, the health of residents and peace of mind for loved ones.

Incidents involving residents with pressure ulcers, also know as bedsores, as well as other issues in this health care sector, underscore the dire need for long-overdue amendments to The Homes for Special Care Act.
