RNs defending New York’s health, demanding hospital preparedness
The number of New Yorkers testing positive for COVID-19 are increasing steadily after three months of relatively low numbers. As we move into fall and flu season, nurses expect to see a COVID resurgence. How our facilities prepare for a second wave will determine the lives saved, as well as the length and severity of the second surge.
To ensure the safety and health of staff, patients, and the New York community, every healthcare facility in New York must take the following safety measures to prepare for COVID Resurgence. These detailed plans are a part of the broader NYSNA COVID Resurgence Plan, available online at nysna.org/resurgence.
