A Real Voice in the Workplace
As nurses at St. Peter’s Hospital we are the frontline in our community as healers and caregivers. We make clinical decisions at the bedside that impact our patients’ lives and wellbeing. As healthcare professionals, we want to be able to recommend our hospital to our community, our families, and our friends. Every patient deserves the same level of safe, evidence-based care. We can only meet this standard if we have a real voice in patient care, safety, and appropriate staffing. Professional, bedside nurses know how to safely staff their units. We implore management to come to the bargaining table and settle a fair contract that guarantees there will be enough skilled hands at the bedside to care for our patients day and night, without fail.
