Sheila Wilson R.N. BSN, MPH, Host of Whine & Cheese guest today is ER Nurse Beckett Augat
In this interview, ER Nurse Beckett Augat discusses her meeting with members of the hospital administration and MA. Nursing Assoc. (MNA) Nurse’s Union. The nurses have sent 600 unsafe staffing forms with no response from the hospital administrations. The nurses need more staff to give good care. Their nursing ratios are too high !. The nurses have been on strike for 8 weeks. Beckett spoke that negotiations didn’t go well. When MNA asked about more staffing Members of the Hospital Administration response was they are taking back the money that was offered. Members of the Hospital Administration don’t seem to understand what goes into taking good care of patients. Beckett also discussed the “one patient law”. If a patient comes in and is seriously ill and needs a critical care bed that patient is assigned a nurse, it is the only patient that nurse has until this patient gets stable. Unfortunately, this is not the case in the Emergency room where the staffing ratios are higher.
This is an interview that the public needs to hear. This Strike is for Safe Patient Care Not MONEY as it is led to be Believe in the Media!
