Healthcare workers are feeling burnt out, so much so that some are opting to leave the industry. Now, faced with a shortage of nursing staff as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, some Ontario hospitals have turned to a simple incentive to entice nurses back into the ER: cash bonuses.
Ottawa’s Queensway Carleton Hospital is offering up to $10,000 to some nurses who qualify for the incentive program and agree to work for at least a year, while the Windsor Regional Hospital is offering up to $75,000 in bonuses to new nurses from outside Canada or outside Ontario.
