Today's comments by the OMA were an insult to all partners and caregivers in the health care system.
Our public health care system works best when all care providers are included in the solution.
It is insulting to suggest that doctors are more important than nurses, personal support workers, community care workers, mental health professionals, paramedics and all those committed workers who support the healthcare operations.
All health care workers must be equally recognized and respected. Any suggestion to the contrary indicates a disregard for the many partners who contribute to making the healthcare system work.
SEIU Healthcare stands with all workers in our health care system--especially those too often ignored.
