Your Hard Work Helps Save Lives

Continuing thanking our front line health care staff at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital during COVID-19 Pandemic, we would like to thank some of our incredible Medical Social Workers.

Social workers' goals during hospitalization/the treatment process are to provide the highest standard of practice to individuals, couples and families by supporting patients in a way that is therapeutic, appropriate, and helpful.

Hospital social workers assist individuals and families in coping with life changes and stressors resulting from hospitalization, sickness, and trauma, meanwhile helping to provide the skills for them to cope on their own.

Join us in thanking Meaghan, Victoria and Jessica who are helping patients every single day help navigate some of their most difficult days.
