THE DUNEDIN HOSPITAL.
TO THE EDITOR.
Sib, —Being astonished at hearing of the sudden dismissal of one of the most competent and popular nurses in the Dunedin Hospital, 1 made inquiries, and ascertained that the report was true. At their last meeting the Committee resolved to dispense with her services, and put a probationer of one year’s standing in her place, giving her, moreover, but one day’s notice, although she was told that there was no fault to he found with her.
All this looks very strange and unaccountable, considering the nurse in question had kindly taken the place of another whose health had broken down ; and she was given to understand that when the latter resigned she should be retained. Hoping that an action so faithless and unjust will not be allowed to pass in silence—l am, etc., Common Justice.
Dunedin, June 4 P.S.—My informant is quite ready to testify to the truth of these statements.
