- Needs CPAP, maybe: Snoring nurse suspended from care home. Quote: “On one occasion the night of 18 January 2008 every single member of staff took a nap at the same time.”
- Personally, I would be amputating first: Nurse trapped in ironing board freed by fire brigade.
- Blindingly obvious statement of the week: “Caring for patients can be quite stressful and take a toll on nurses, unless they learn to manage the pressure.” Um, yep.
- Unions step up fight against pay freeze: “Women who care for the elderly in publicly funded nursing homes in Toronto make, on average, 2.5 per cent of the compensation paid to CEOs like Tim Lukenda at Extendicare,” Stewart said. “Mr. Lukenda made $1.5 million including bonuses last year.

- Something I never thought I would say here: Defending nursing home nurses.
- Some preemie babies ‘give up’ to blunt repeated pain: “Premature babies are repeatedly exposed to painful invasive procedures, yet only 36 per cent of premature babies in Canada get pain relief, according to Celeste Johnston, a McGill University nursing professor and expert in neonatal pain.”
