"No common sense": Nurses receive "lemon gifts" from CISSS de Chaudière-Appalaches

In Quebec, it's Health Care Professional Recognition Month. So, imagine the reaction such a publication provoked among nurses and other employees.

“It leaves us with a very bitter taste to see that there is no judgment for a wholesaler like that,” said Carole Mercier, president of the Chaudière-Appalaches Union of Healthcare Professionals (SPSCA), in an interview with NovoInfo on Thursday. Conditions are there, and then what we receive are lemon prices.”

“We think it's very, very common.”

“Ever seen this?” Ms. with an angry voice. Mercier asked. “It doesn't make sense, I'm still in shock. […] We can't believe it.”

In response, the nursing staff returned the lemon prices to the CISSS.

“They deserve a lemon award from a non-employer who chooses with us,” she said.

The controversial post was removed two hours later after several complaints. CISSS declined any interview with Noovo Info, but a spokesperson explained that the initiative is to positively identify people following a trend on social media.

“We can defend ourselves better, but I think they got away,” replied Carol Mercier. “They're trying to improve their image, but it's hard to understand.”

CISSS Choudier-Appalaches apologizes if its message was not received well by its employees.
