At an awards ceremony on Tuesday, May 5th, the Human Resources Team from the former Cumberland Health Authority was pleased to receive a 2015 Mainstay Award in recognition of its outstanding return to work program. As the provincial 2015 “Employer Return to Work Champion”, the team was recognized for its program that was introduced in early 2014.
Some fidgeted, others held hands with friends, some lay down, and some just smiled all the way through. This was the scene at Acadia University during student vaccination clinics for serotype B meningococcal meningitis.
Nestled just off the service tunnel below the QEII Health Science Centre’s Dickson Building is a place of hope. Take a journey inside the maritimes only hyperbaric chamber with cancer survivor Janice Maclean as she experiences an unexpected way to heal her body and mind.
This year, hundreds of Nova Scotians like Chris will require wound care after surgery, due to an injury or because they have one-time or ongoing wounds caused by other problems like heart disease, diabetes, or poor mobility.
Nova Scotia Health Authority is now able to confirm the composition of black debris that has formed on some sterilized surgical trays at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax Infirmary site.
Testing of the debris shows it is composed of chromium, copper, iron, zinc and nickel. The material has been sent to a local toxicologist to determine whether the substance is toxic.
7,000 is an impressive number. And even more impressive, this is the number of volunteers Nova Scotia Health Authority is fortunate to have across the province.
Thank you to all of our volunteers. You are valued members of the Nova Scotia Health Authority team.
