Abstract

With the recent formation of the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, a number of challenges have arisen that must be addressed. One involves the porter service, which faces increased demands since every department has new and often expanded duties for porters. This paper identifies obstacles facing the porter service and develops recommendations, which may also be of interest to other healthcare facilities facing similar challenges.
