To the Editor,
Re: Doctors warn of burnout at new ER ward, April 6.
The truth about our fancy new ER is a shame. Why is the Vancouver Island Health Authority printing a fancy, free colour magazine to tell us how wonderful they are and wasting money that should be used for doctors?
Or is this reading material for a five-hour wait before seeing a doctor and going into convulsions?
Call me crazy, but this new magazine is a waste of our tax dollars. Our ER has asked for funds to hire doctors but the government chooses to give $11 million for one night of a Bollywood production and VIHA is printing a magazine.
This makes Monty Python seem like a drama not a comedy.
