Health Care Security and Safety Week

October 8-14, 2018 is Health Care Security and Safety Week and in recognition, we have an incredibly moving story from one of our proud Security Officers, Teegan Hunter. The whole health care team contributed significantly throughout the Humboldt tragedy, and this member story is a glimpse to the resilience of this amazing community we call home.

We understand the importance of quality, public health care at all times but particularly during heartbreaking events, when communities need it most. We thank the whole health care team for their efforts and would especially like to extend our gratitude for the hardworking Security Officers, like Teegan, who passionately work to ensure our health care environments are safe for all. Please be sure to give your thanks to your local Security Officers this week and support them by adding your voice to ensure strong security services in our care environments. You can also enter our Health Care Security and Safety Week Contest – just email actions@seiuwest.ca and let us know why public Security Officers add value to your care environment. The deadline to enter is October 17, 2018 and there are many great prizes to be won!
