It’s been almost 6 months since our WSNA officers started having regular meetings with management. We started meeting once a week and have now moved to bi-weekly. Management has been providing COVID-19 updates as well as talking about issues we would normally bring up in Conference Committee (generally held the first Monday of every month). This has been an extremely challenging time. Our officers have worked hard to keep current on issues and rapid daily changes (especially at the beginning of April).
We’d like to hear from you. Please take a few moments to complete the WSNA/CWH COVID-19 survey
Tracey Kasnic and Juli McAlister are holding a Nursing Town Hall via TEAMS. We are encouraging all members to attend. The purpose of this meeting is open communication and transparency. What are your concerns? We all know communication goes both ways. Please send your questions to Deborah.Navarro@CONFLUENCEHEALTH.ORG
If you find yourself in a situation that you believe creates unsafe conditions for patients or for you, you should complete a Staffing Complaint / ADO Form as soon as possible.
By completing the form, you will help make the problem known to management, creating an opportunity for the problem to be addressed. Additionally, you will be documenting the facts, which may be helpful to you later if there is a negative outcome.
WSNA also uses your ADO forms to track the problems occurring in your facility. When you and your coworkers take the important step of filling out an ADO form, you are helping to identify whether there is a pattern of unsafe conditions for you or your patients at your facilities. This information is used by your conference committee, staffing committee, and WSNA labor staff to improve your working conditions.
If called into a meeting with management, read the following to management when the meeting begins:
