LPN's at Braemore Home Welcome Review

SYDNEY, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 3, 2011) - The union representing Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) at Braemore Home in Sydney says it also welcomes the announcement from the minister of community services that a full program and operational review of the facility will take place.

CUPE National Representative John Evans says, "The 30 LPNs in Local 1478 are pleased to see the minister has made this decision.

"Like other frontline staff at the home, the LPNs would like to set the record straight on recent events and we are hopeful that this review will do that," says Evans.

"We are also happy to see that the minister has agreed that governance of the facility will be part of the review process," he says.

Evans says the LPNs look forward to giving their full cooperation to the facility review.
