An Ontario nurse who was allegedly harassed on social media after being named as a registrant on a new parents registry has been identified by her employer as a nurse assistant who worked at the Ontario Nurses’ Union (ONU) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
According to the Ontario Provincial Police, the woman was on leave from the ONU on Tuesday after being placed on leave following the death of her son.
She was transferred to CAMH for further review, but is currently not registered with the Ontario Health Insurance Plan.
According to her employer, the ONUs registry was created in February 2017 and the Ontario nurses who have taken part in the program are registered nurses, and are required to work 24 hours a day.
On March 4, 2017, the Ontario Public Health Agency (OPHA) launched the ONu Nursing Register and the new registry will be open to registered nurses until September 19, 2020.
Ontario Nurses Association president and CEO Catherine Mancini said the OPAHA will be monitoring the registration process and will provide updates to the public once the registry is up and running.
“The ONU and CAMH are committed to ensuring our members are safe and supported, and to ensuring that our new parents have the best chance of successfully completing the process and joining the workforce,” Mancino said.
“Nurses in the public sector are being trained to support new parents, and this registry will ensure that nurses and their families are fully informed about how to support the new parents.”
We are committed and excited to continue working closely with ONU, CAMH and the OPP to ensure that this registry is a safe, supportive and efficient place for all of us to get the support we need to be able to support a new parent and their family.
“Nursing staff on leaveThe OPAHE confirmed on Monday that the woman who was placed on maternity leave had been placed on sick leave, but said the decision was made after the woman returned to work.
Mancinini said she believes the woman’s case is an example of how the OPEAs registry could be a safe and effective place for new mothers to find employment.”
It’s a way to help the new parent be supported and able to find their way,” she said.”
Nurses on maternity and sick leave are in danger of losing their jobs.
We’re going to work to make sure that they can get a safe transition and be supported in their new role.
“The ONUs nursing register has been created to provide information about new parents and their children to support them in the new roles they face.
According to ONU rules, nurses on leave must remain on the register for a minimum of 12 weeks.
The ONU has also launched a campaign in support of new mothers on leave.”
Our new nurses on maternity care are all on leave, so if they have to return to work, they should be able do so on time,” Mascagni said.
