LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Patient Safety is Our Top Priority
 

As I write this, nurses from Mercy Health - St. Vincent Hospital have overwhelmingly voted to go on strike. We have read the statement from the hospital and we want you to hear from us.

Patient safety is our No. 1 concern, and when nurses are exhausted patient safety is at risk. Safe staffing ratios are among the big points of disagreement and I couldn’t help but notice that the hospital statement made no mention of them.

We don't want to strike. We want to care for our patients, our community and ourselves, but management has left us no choice, and the overwhelming support for the strike among our members reflects that.

Health care costs are an issue, too. Hospital officials want to change nurses’ share of healthcare costs whenever they want – changes that would make it difficult for nurses and their families to budget.

Expect to hear more details soon from nurses on the front line.
