St. Bonificace Hospital has seen seven staff resignations in the span of nine days in one of its COVID-19 units, according to a memo emailed to staff at the Winnipeg hospital.

The email was sent by hospital management to staff on Sept. 10. It outlined “risks” for the 6A unit, where COVID-19 patients are treated.

“It’s been too long of a time without any support,” one of the nurses who resigned from the unit told CBC News.
