More than 100 nurses from the Capital Region came together on July 10 – and we voted unanimously to adopt NYSNA's Capital Region platform for Safe Staffing and Quality Care!
Nurses came together from union and nonunion facilities to set common priorities and a common strategy to protect caregivers, our patients, and our communities. Our platform calls for safe staffing, affordable healthcare for caregivers, fair wages that meet the state average, and protecting care in our communities.
Nurses at Montefiore's Weiler hospital have won a victory for Safe Staffing – and now 15 new RNs positions are on the fast track.
Before our campaign, patients and nurses in the Weiler Emergency Department faced inadequate staffing, overcrowding, delays in assessing and reassessing patients, and high turnover among RNs due to stressful working conditions.
