Violence levels concern nurses

B.C. NURSES’ UNION CHAIR LINDA PIPE pital, said, “Violence in the workplace is always a concern. It has to be front and centre in all the considerations we make for changes. It is something that I think we’re seeing somewhat more of.” One nurse who has worked at Abbotsford Hospital for years said that “absolutely” violence is getting worse. “Are we scared? Absolutely. Because the things we’re scared about now is stuff we never thought we’d see,” said the nurse, who requested anonymity since staff do not have unrestricted permission to speak with the media.

should be tolerating. “There’s been serious acts of violence at that worksite on my floor that nurses have never returned to the practice environment.” An agitated patient often starts with verbal abuse. The situation can then escalate. Patients will throw things, push linen carts. When it seems as if a patient might become aggressive, staff call a “Code White” over the public intercom – a signal for all trained nurses, care-aides, and security guards to converge for immediate assistance. The hope is that the united front will intimidate the patient and cause him or her

to back down. If that fails, those responding physically immobilize the patient. November and December 2013 saw a total of 24 Code Whites, 10 of which were false, according to Goudsblom. He added that the holiday season is traditionally a high-pressure time, with many people admitted to hospital and many hospital staff on vacation. Comparatively, August and September saw 14 Code Whites with four false calls. According to Goudsblom, each Code White is audited. Pipe said nurses are reluctant to get involved in such situations. She cites insufficient training, nurses getting older, and fear of being hurt. Sometimes, when hospital staff feel they cannot handle the situation, they call in Abbotsford Police. For the past few years, there were one to seven calls per month to Abby PD from the regional hospital, according to Const. Ian MacDonald. Pipe said the situation is similar in Mission Memorial Hospital. Mission RCMP responded to 50 calls in 2013, or an average of four per month, according to media relations officer Sgt. Shaun Wright. That’s a decrease

During her 23-year career, Linda Pipe has been spat at, bitten, cussed out, and punched in the abdomen and head. An aggravated patient once pulled a knife on her. The chair of the B.C. Nurses’ Union is gravely concerned by the levels of violence she sees at Abbotsford Regional Hospital, as well as at Mission Memorial, where she works. “Nurses are getting hurt,” she said. “We didn’t go into nursing to do this. We went into nursing to take care of people.” Every year, there are dozens of incidents of violence and aggression toward staff at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre, according to Fraser Health data obtained by The News. These incidents include everything from verbal abuse, to biting and spitting, to hitting and other assault. When the hospital opened in August 2008, there was one such incident reported for the year. That figure jumped to 22 in 2009, then to 42 by 2012. February 2011 was the most violent month in the history of Abbotsford Regional, with nine incidents occurring that month alone. Last year saw a decline,

with 33 incidents of violence and aggression at Abbotsford Regional. The majority of cases – 73 per cent – were physical abuse. A quarter were verbal, and two per cent were psychological. Mark Goudsblom, site director at Abbotsford hos-

Staffing shortages, stress and abuse Alina KONEVSKI Abbotsford News

On the morning of Dec. 29, 2013, a Sunday at the height of the holiday season, Abbotsford Regional Hospital found itself short of nurses. A lot of the regulars called in sick. Managers contacted casual staff and part-timers to come in. They offered standard overtime, then triple overtime. By late morning, there was insufficient staff. Site director Mark Goudsblom declared a state of emergency. That meant that some nurses already on site could not leave because overtime became mandatory. Linda Pipe, chair of the B.C. Nurses’ Union (BCNU), said that situation is typical. According to her, a chronic staffing shortPIPE age, combined with an unpleasant work environment, created a situation where nurses were unwilling to come to work, regardless of the pay. “It’s not a pay issue at all. They’re just burned out. They’ve had it.”

Canada’s #1 Central Vacuum

Emergency, psychiatric, and residential care departments have the highest rates of violence and aggression incidents Nurses at Abbotsford Hospital report dozens of incidents of violence and aggression from agitated patients each month. Pipe and hospital site director Mark Goudsblom agree that three hospital departments have the highest rates of such incidents: emergency, psychiatric, and residential care. The emergency department at Abbotsford Hospital receives anywhere from 30 to 60 admitted patients each day, according to Pipe. That means that the 300-bed regional hospital is overcapacity on the in-patient units. Erin Labbé, public affairs consultant with Fraser Health, said the hospital typically runs near or at capacity. The hospital’s emerg sees about 40,000 patients annually. The BCNU has been warning of dangerous congestion at Abbotsford, Mission and other Fraser Health hospitals for years. The daily battles between departments on how to handle so many patients create tensions and work stress – both

between patients and nurses, and between nursing staff. “People are agitated because they’re waiting four, five hours to be seen. And as soon as they’re agitated, there’s only so much you can do patient-wise to essentially calm them down,” said an Abbotsford Hospital nurse, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she didn’t have Fraser Health approval to speak with the media. The residential care unit is another that has always had a higher than average amount of violence because many patients have dementia or other psychiatric conditions. According to Fraser Health, 21 per cent of all incidents of violence or aggression in Abbotsford were due to the patient being confused or unable to follow directions. Another 24 per cent occurred when a patient was being moved. The Abbotsford Hospital’s large psychiatric department draws its share of incidents as well. “There is an increase in psychiatric patients that are unable to access services within the community, so by the time they get to emerg, they’re in a psychiatric snap,” said the Abbotsford nurse.

Non-residential construction drops in 2013 in CMA

A fun fitness challenge

If you think conquering cancer is worth sweating over, JOIN US! Register for Workout to Conquer Cancer today.

With no major projects moving forward in the near future, Abbotsford’s non-residential construction investment declined in the fourth quarter of 2013. The Abbotsford census metropolitan area ended the year down 25.6 per cent from 2012, according to the Vancouver Regional Construction

Association’s (VCRA) analysis of a Statistics Canada report. The VCRA predicts no immediate turnaround because the area currently has no large projects scheduled for construction. Total non-residential building construction investment spending in Abbotsford decreased 19.8 per cent to $33.2 million in the fourth

quarter of 2013, compared to $41.4 million in the third quarter of 2013. Commercial construction investment dropped 23.9 per cent to $12.3 million, while institutionalgovernment spending fell 12.6 per cent to $17 million and industrial building investment decreased 32.6 per cent to $3.9 million.

Ian MacDonald said a woman in her 50s was proceeding in the crosswalk when she was struck by a Honda Pilot SUV. MacDonald said the male driver, in his 70s, was making a left turn from Marshall onto Riverside at the time. MacDonald said the incident is still under investigation, but the driver will likely receive one or more charges under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Hospital ‘adequately staffed’

From A3

ment area from Hope to Langley, explained Goudsblom. “We’ve seen a growth of the mental health and substance abuse program… We’re seeing an increase in the patient population that is pulled toward Abbotsford Regional because of its growth and capacity as a regional centre for mental health and substance abuse.” Pipe has criticized her employer for not recruiting enough nurses to cope with the rise in patients, but Fraser Health disagrees. “Fraser Health recognizes the need for adequate nurse staffing levels to ensure the quality of patient care delivered in our hospitals. Abbotsford Regional Hospital is adequately staffed,” replied Labbé. There were 969 registered nurse positions at the hospital as of Oct.

31, 2013 – nearly nine per cent higher than in 2011. An average of 40 positions were open during each month in 2013. Abbotsford hospital is currently looking to fill 10 registered nurse positions in ER alone. Pipe has also said that the hospital’s two security guards aren’t enough, and that nurses don’t receive the training they need to be able to handle aggressive patients. In November 2012, a WorkSafe BC inspection found that two of five workers interviewed at the hospital last did their mandatory training on aggressive patients more than 18 months prior, whereas the Workers Compensation Act requires that the training be done annually. Fraser Health has had a violence prevention policy since 2006 that includes risk assessments, training, and the use of

Code White emergency calls. The agency works closely with the Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees, and members of the Fraser Health Regional Violence Prevention Committee meet regularly, according to Wendy Strugnell, the agency’s vice-president of people and organizational development. “We thoroughly review every situation of violence that takes place at the site and work with the leadership teams to ensure that the level of security required is appropriate to keep patients and staff safe,” said Strugnell. A nurse who sees it daily at Abbotsford isn’t convinced, and says what would help is more security guards. “There’s lots of talk about what they’re going to do. But I haven’t seen any gross improvements to the safety and security of the staff in there.”

Pipe adamant incidents of violence ‘under-reported’

From A3

from 59 calls in 2012. Fraser Health’s vice-president of people and organizational development, Wendy Strugnell, said that the health authority is “always concerned about situations of violence from patients towards staff.” As to whether the rates at Abbotsford Regional are normal, Strugnell said: “Incidents of violence and aggression towards staff vary significantly between hospitals, depending on the size of the hospital, the population it serves and the services it provides ... We address each hospital individually.” Pipe, who has worked at Mission Memorial since

1980 and has close contacts with Abbotsford Hospital, maintains the official stats on violence are low. “It’s totally under-reported. I do know that security has more incidents than what is reported on the Code White report forms,” she said. Only a portion of incidents result in WorkSafeBC claims. Anecdotally, nurses at Abbotsford’s emergency department tell Pipe there’s at least one violent incident per day. But nurses are most likely to file an official report only about those resulting in injuries. “They accept it as part of the job – being sworn at, or being spat at. In some cases, I think they think that, at least that’s all they got ... They weren’t hit.”

Food bank items posted on auction website

Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

Staff at the Abbotsford Food Bank were surprised last week when they were informed that a client had attempted to auction items online that had been donated to the food bank and which she received for free. The incident took place on Thursday, on an online auction site that is operated over Facebook. The woman’s posting indicated that she had 53 small packages of “blueberry-flavoured dark chocolate” and six bigger bags of “pomegranate dark chocolate” up for bid. Some people recognized the items as identical to those they had received in food hampers from the Abbotsford Food Bank just before Christmas.

SUBMITTED

A posting on an online auction site displayed chocolate obtained from the Abbotsford Food Bank that was up for bid. Dave Murray, manager of the food bank, said the facility was notified on Thursday afternoon about the online posting. He confirmed that the woman who posted it was a food bank client and the items she was attempting to sell had been handed out before Christmas. Murray said the donation from BrooksideHershey Canada was generous and enabled each client to receive a

large amount of chocolate as a Christmas treat. The food bank frowns upon donated food being sold. Murray suggested that people who receive unwanted items from the food bank either return them or pass them along to someone else who could use them. Murray said the woman qualified for support after meeting the required criteria,

including providing proof of her income. He said the food bank considered perhaps banning her from future support but instead arranged a meeting with her on Friday morning. Murray said the woman was “mortified” about the incident. She removed the posting from the auction site and returned all the chocolate to the food bank. Following the meeting, the woman’s boyfriend contacted the Abbotsford News, saying she was remorseful about what had happened. “It’s an honest mistake, and she feels really bad about it … She apologized to Brookside and the food bank and the community … and it will never happen again,” he said.

Preservation requires co-operation Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand From someone whose life has revolved around words, and mostly the correct usage of same, I find it disturbing how often many of them are misused. Recently, I read about an animal, complete with photograph, that had been “electrocuted.” The animal, following its “electrocution” appeared to be reasonably fine; at least as fine as anything can be after receiving a jolt of electricity. In other words, to be electrocuted means to be killed, not merely shocked, though admittedly getting zapped can be unpleasant in even the best of circumstances. Death, on the other hand, is rather final and one does not actively pose for pictures following it. Extinction is another of those words that has a significant ring of finality about it.

In one of the Vancouver dailies this week was an article about the wolf “problem” in the areas surrounding Yellowstone Park. According to the author, wolves were “hunted to extinction” around 1926. Species extinction means they are gone for good, such as the dodo bird and the passenger pigeon. Extirpation of the wolves in Yellowstone is the word that should have been used, since wolf populations are far from extinct, and in fact, thanks to two re-introductions numbering 27 wolves from Canada 20 years ago, there are now some 1,700 of the four-legged critters cleaning up on Montana/Wyoming livestock, elk and other handy prey. They have become so successful that Montana ranchers are screaming for their demise, and hunting “opportunities” are in effect in an attempt to keep the wolf population growth in that area in check. Obviously, extinct they are/were not; merely extirpated from that particular region. While I can, in a way, understand the concerns of those ranchers – they were virtually predator-free for nearly 75 years – reintroducing wildlife to a traditional territory

returns a natural balance to the ecosystem. Yes, it can cause problems but much of Wyoming and Montana are essentially wild places, with just over 1.5 million combined population. Montana, which borders B.C., is also the third-largest state south of the border, so you’d think there’d be sufficient wilderness to accommodate predators as

Obviously, extinct they are/were not; merely extirpated from that particular region. well as people. Additionally, there is a significant environmental movement afoot to create what is known as the international Y2Y (Yellowstone to Yukon) initiative. Not only is this an admirable effort to create a wildlife corridor through some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet, it is actually gaining considerable traction. There are, of

course, certain hurdles to its creation, not the least of which are the proposed Jumbo Glacier year-round ski resort in the East Kootenay and the Site C dam in the Peace country. While the dam and its reservoir may create a significant barrier to north/south wildlife interaction, it will probably only affect local populations. Nor should Jumbo be an impediment, because animals aren’t using the corridor in Serengeti-like migrations anyway. Otherwise, Kootenay wolves would have repopulated Yellowstone long before reintroductions were necessary. That said, the Y2Y is an admirable goal and its wilderness preservation objectives are aimed at retaining the natural beauty and environment of a vast territory unavailable, perhaps, anywhere else in the world. What needs to be remembered, however, is that everyone must work co-operatively in its creation because people and progress can’t and won’t be extirpated in its wake as the Yellowstone wolves once were.

letters Some people haven’t read composting info Re: New garbage policy wrong on so many levels, Jan. 15 edition. Contrary to Suzanne Bertness, I have no problem with the new garbage system. Many cities have the same solution. With regard to the cost in Bellingham, you have to pay extra for weekly pick-up. The kitchen containers that were given to us seal perfectly well. If emptied everyday into a sealed outside container and washed, there is very little smell. The outside containers should then be washed after they have

been emptied. It is obvious on garbage day, all over the city, that some people have not read the literature sent them. For example, soiled pizza boxes can go into the compost. Some residents don’t take advantage of composting, and then they complain of insufficient garbage pick up. These people who complain about a little compost smell amaze me. How do they go to the washroom? Have they ever changed a baby’s diaper? Brian Gerty, Abbotsford

H1N1 flu death count misleading, say officials Jeff NAGEL

fied,� said Dr. Reka Gustafson, a medical health officer with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. As a result, she said it’s “not a meaningful exercise� to focus on the number of deaths or hospitalizations as that can give a false impression that influenza is less severe. Based on national averages, the BCCDC estimates there are up to 520 influenza-related hospital deaths in B.C. in a normal flu season each year. H1N1 makes up more than 80 per cent of flu cases in B.C. so far this year. Many pharmacies have run out of vaccine after a late scramble to get immunized. The province says nearly 1.4 million British Columbians have been vaccinated so far and the “unprecedented demand� has led to temporary gaps in supply. More vaccine is on order and will be distributed across the province – 5,000 more doses are expected to arrive this week, another 3,000 are expected next week and the province has requested a further 13,000 doses.

Black Press

Public health officials say more B.C. residents have likely died of H1N1 flu this month than the official count of five lab-confirmed deaths so far. Four of the confirmed H1N1 deaths were on Vancouver Island, while the fifth was in the Interior and there are none officially listed in the Lower Mainland. According to the B.C. Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), there are 49 patients hospitalized in intensive care units with severe influenza as of Jan. 17. Sixteen of them are in the Fraser Health region and 10 are on Vancouver Island. But officials say the number of deaths understate the true scope of H1N1 flu fatalities because patients hospitalized with flu-like symptoms – even those who die – are not generally lab tested for a final confirmation of influenza or type. “Most deaths from influenza will probably not have influenza identi-

Tony Mayo’s most current book, Twenty-Nine Lives, is now available electronically via major distributors.

Tony Mayo, long-time Abbotsford resident, artist, author and teacher, recently released his most current publication titled “Twenty-Nine Lives.� The eBook is an account of 28 occasions during his life where Mayo faced death. Each chapter chronicles a series of events in which he encountered near-death situations, or was involved in events that could have easily led to his demise. After surviving each of those incidents, Mayo felt as if he had been given another chance to live. From his earliest years, Mayo led an adventurous life. Since 1972, many of his exciting experiences have occurred during various risky

travels into some of the most remote parts of 91 countries around the world. Throughout those travels, while studying numerous endangered human cultures, Mayo carefully collected thousands of historically important artifacts. At the same time he painstakingly documented priceless information through slides, photographs, notes, diagrams, tape recordings and videos. The book is available electronically and may be downloaded onto a computer, smart phone, tablet or eReader, via all major eBook distributors. For more photographs, visit tonymayoart.com.

New exhibits to open A public reception takes place Thursday, Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. for the newest exhibits opening at the Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford (32388 Veterans Way). The exhibits run from Jan. 23 to March 30 and include “Clash: Conflict and its Consequences,” which explores the subject of war and conflict in photography. Moving beyond depictions of the spectacle of battle, the exhibition shows both the photographers’ and the victims’ experiences. Central to this exhibition is photography’s relationship with trauma and remembrance, at the personal, communal and national levels, and issues of what constitutes history, for whom, and why. The exhibit is organized by the National Gallery of Canada and curated by Andrea Kunard, associate curator of photographs at the

Slopes for Hope raises cancer funds Second annual event at Hemlock Resort

Vikki HOPES

Megan Bukta was too young to remember her mom’s cancer struggle but now, as an adult, she’s helping others with their battles. Bukta, 27, is a volunteer with the Canadian Cancer Society and, as such, helps raise funds that go towards cancer research, prevention initiatives, and support programs. She credits such dollars with helping her mom, Michelle Rickaby, to survive Hodgkin’s lymphoma when Bukta was just three years old, and she wants to return the favour. This includes assisting with the Cancer Society’s latest fundraiser – Slopes for Hope, taking place Sunday, Feb. 9 at Hemlock Resort. The event invites skiers and boarders to raise pledges and then spend the day on the slopes. They can attempt to ski or board the height of Mount Everest, which requires 22 runs, either as individuals or a team. Wacky costumes are encouraged. Registration is $10 (free for kids under 12), and those who raise more than $100 receive a free lift pass for the day, as well as the first run of the day. Nicola Romaniuk, annual giving co-ordinator with the Fraser Valley region of the Cancer Society, said the event, taking place on the Family Day long weekend, is designed for the whole family. The top fundraising team receives a two-night stay during spring break for up to 10 people at Snowflake Resort Chalets at Hemlock Resort or a three-night stay during the summer. Prizes are also awarded for the top individual fundraiser and the best team spirit. About $13,000 was raised last year – the first time the event was held at Hemlock Resort – and the goal is $16,000 this time around. All proceeds go to

Cascades sweep WolfPack Hoopsters host UBC-O this weekend

The University of the Fraser Valley basketball teams both took major steps toward locking up lofty playoff seeds, sweeping the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack on the road in Kamloops last weekend. The Cascades women flexed their defensive muscles from the opening tip-off on Friday – they out-scored the WolfPack 29-3 in the first quarter en route to a 75-41 triumph, limiting the hosts to 19.7 per cent shooting from the field. Aieisha Luyken (16 points, five treys) and Sarah Wierks (13 points, nine rebounds) led the way. On Saturday, TRU came with a much more determined effort, but the Cascades battled through foul trouble to grind out a 75-67 victory behind 17 points from Kayli Sartori. The WolfPack (7-7) had been just one game back of the Cascades (10-4) going into the weekend, but UFV put some distance between them while staying one game up on UBC and UVic (both 9-5) for first place in the Pacific Division of Canada West. “It was important for us to take two, and we really took care of business,” head coach Al Tuchscherer said. “It

was one of our better weekends.” The Cascades men, meanwhile, surged ahead in the race for second place in the Pacific Division – and the right to host a first-round playoff series that comes with it. UFV and TRU had matching 7-5 records going in, but the Cascades boosted their win streak to six games (the longest active streak in Canada West) with 74-65 and 76-69 victories. At 9-5, the Cascades will be hardpressed to catch first-place UVic (12-2), but they have a two-game cushion on TRU, Mount Royal and Trinity Western (all 7-7). “Great weekend for our team,” Cascades coach Adam Friesen stated in a press release. “Lots of great individual performances but the team-first attitude of everyone is really what won us these games.” Jasper Moedt, UFV’s 6’7” centre, racked up 21 points and 11 rebounds on Friday, and had another doubledouble (13 points, 14 boards) Saturday. Kevon Parchment had 25 points and 14 rebounds on Saturday. Q The Cascades hoopsters host the UBC-Okanagan Heat on Friday (women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m.) and Saturday (women 5 p.m., men 7 p.m.) at the Envision Athletic Centre.

Lions beat Rebels for bronze

highlight-reel dunks by Grade 10 phenoms Anthony McNish and Grant Audu. The Falcons brought a gritty effort and hung around for most of the first half, but Henry Carr’s relentless 1-2-2 zone press had them out of sorts offensively all night. “We’re lucky to be deep and athletic and quick, so we play that style of defence,” Crusaders coach Paul Melnik noted. “The whole idea is, it might not get you in the first quarter, it might not get you in the second quarter. It might not even get you in the third quarter, but it’s going to get you at some point. “That’s kind of what

you saw today.” Carr sharpshooter Marcus Bonnick, who racked up 21 points in the final, was tourney MVP, while his teammates McNish and Ty Stewart-Nelson were first team all-stars. Sardis’s big three of Eric Rogers, Hayden Lejeune and Cam Servatius rounded out the first all-star team, while second teamers were Luke Tompkins of the host Abby Senior Panthers, W.J. Mouat Hawks point guard Corey Hauck, Elijah Campbell-Axson of Vancouver College, and Buster Truss of Kelowna.
