NENA Statement on CAEP access block news release

The National Emergency Nurses Association (NENA) recognizes the critical state of access block that is occurring in Canadian emergency departments. NENA endorses the five measures the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) put forth in their statement “Critical conditions in Canadian emergency departments are due to lack of human resources and timely access to hospital beds“.

NENA is eager to work with CAEP and all front-line nurses to address the significant pressures faced by patients and clinicians in Canadian emergency departments.
