You should receive a communication from management related to the new visitor policy requiring screening, limiting visitors and requiring masking of all in the hospital.
Thank you everyone for getting your WSNA Executive Team the information and concerns about SRH proposed visitor policy which would have been dangerous to patients, visitors and staff alike. Because of you, SRH is now a safer place to work.
Please continue to communicate to us what you are seeing on your unit. You may email any of the team or complete an online WSNA ADO form (www.wsna.org/ado ) You can do this from home on your phone and the form comes directly to your chair and your nurse rep as well as the staffing committee co-chairs…automatically! You can bet we will follow up!
If you find yourself in a situation that you believe creates unsafe conditions for patients or for you, you should complete a Staffing Complaint / ADO Form as soon as possible.
By completing the form, you will help make the problem known to management, creating an opportunity for the problem to be addressed. Additionally, you will be documenting the facts, which may be helpful to you later if there is a negative outcome.
WSNA also uses your ADO forms to track the problems occurring in your facility. When you and your coworkers take the important step of filling out an ADO form, you are helping to identify whether there is a pattern of unsafe conditions for you or your patients at your facilities. This information is used by your conference committee, staffing committee, and WSNA labor staff to improve your working conditions.
