Care Delivery Model Redesign (CDMR)

 
​​

​Agreement resolves CDMR issues at Nanaimo General Hospital​

​A settlement agreement restoring a number of nursing positions lost under a new care model at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH) is​ being greeted enthusiastically by local nurses, who are pleased at the prospect of once again trying to deliver safe patient care.​  Read the bulletin here​

Nurses’ Campaign key to success in restoring nursing hours​

A strong campaign led by nurses was key to securing a negotiated settlement for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital which restored nursing hours at the bedside. The agreement, when fully implemented, will restore the majority of the 48,000 annual nursing hours cut by CDMR (Care Delivery Model Redesign) back in September 2013. ​

The campaign pressured Island Health to reverse their cuts to nursing care at the bedside. Island nurses fought hard against the CDMR care model which endangers patients by replacing licensed nurses with unlicensed personnel, leaving nurses with too many patients to care for safely.​  Read More

The fight for safe patient care continues​

The restoration of nursing hours at NRGH is a significant win against irresponsible care model change. However, nurses at four other hospitals – Cowichan District, Royal Jubilee, Saanich Peninsula, and Victoria General – continue to work under versions of CDMR.  BCNU is actively working to restore safe staffing for patients at all of these hospitals.
