Health Authorities Take Stern Action against Anesthesiologists by Sending Legal Notice
Health authorities across BC have retained a Vancouver law firm to take legal action against Anesthesiologists, who were looking to withdraw their services as part of their job action, would now have some legal action taken against them. Health authorities have come down hard on all anesthesiologists by hiring a law firm in Vancouver to take necessary steps in order to stop them from going ahead.
Although there is a process of negotiation going on, the anesthesiologists have a lot of disputes that wonâ€™t be sorted out by any negotiation. They are adamant on their demands over salary issue, which is why they called to withdraw services on April 2 if their demands are not heard.
The law firm that has been hired by the health authorities has categorically stated that people stopping their services would be liable for legal action to be taken against them. The letter also threatens to suspend the hospital privileges of anesthesiologists.
There might also be injunctive relief as well as damages in the form of costs incurred by this move, against the physicians. In the time of negotiations, both sides have taken stern actions and if there is no resolution soon, things could get worse.
