Former NS Health Minister Calls For Better ER Staff Recruitment

There were a couple of emergency room closures over the weekend at Fishermen's Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg.  As with all the other ER closures at Fishermen's, this latest one was also a result of a staff shortage.  Former Tory Health Minister and Argyle MLA, Chris d'Entremont, says a shakeup is needed in the system, especially when it comes to emergency rooms and who's available to work.

d'Entremont says the health care system needs to be overhauled to make it more cost-efficient and able to meet the medical needs of all Nova Scotians.
