NY Nurse February 2014

What you don’t know could actually hurt you. The truth is that powerful corporations and the supremely rich push for laws to further their wealth and power. If we wish to make positive changes, we need to know what’s really going on.

By Judy Sheridan-Gonzalez, RN, NYSNA President

It’s a new day at New York- Presbyterian, where the NYSNA/ 1199 Campaign for Quality Care is taking hold. We have joined forces because we share a common goal: providing quality care. All too often, management at Presby undermines that goal. Every healthcare worker knows that quality care is achieved when we have a voice in decision-making. We’re on the front lines: We know what patients need, and we know what we need to do right by them.

The American Legislative Exchange Council, ALEC, which drafts, distributes, and promotes legislation at the state level across the U.S., has released details of its draconian blueprint for America in the form of a 2014 agenda. Consumers, workers, environmentalists, school children: beware.
