STAFFING REPORT

NJNU continues to focus on the impact of adequate nurse staffing on patient outcomes and the various factors that can affect safe staffing. Unfortunately, the employer continues to focus on the corporate end of the healthcare industry, thus forcing our nurses to protect themselves and their patients. While there may be issues that are unique to your unit, there are still a few things that are important for every nurse to know in order to protect their license, as follows:

Staffing at KMC/SBBH

There have been many staffing issues at KMC/SBBH which NJNU is in the process of investigating. We are asking that each of our members continue to report every incident that they feel places their license in jeopardy or comprises your ability to provide quality level care to your patients. In addition, we are in the process of populating a committee dedicated to addressing the staffing issues that are unique to your facility. If you would like more information, please click here.

Staffing at SBMC

The SBMC Joint Labor/Management Staffing Committee is currently underway. NJNU holds meetings the first Monday of every month in our office so that members can discuss the many staffing issues that plague their units. The NJNU Staffing committee members determine which issues they would like to address in the joint meetings with management and send their recommendations to the four members of the Joint Staffing Committee.

Health Professionals & Allied Employees (AFT/AFL-CIO) &New Jersey Nurses Union (CWA/ AFL-CIO) present:

HIPAA and the Cullen Law have had a significant impact on the practice of healthcare professionals. While both laws address serious problems, they have been used by some employers to treat employees unfairly. For example, some healthcare professionals have lost their licenses as a result of employer actions. Learn how these laws impact your license and professional practice.
 

Mandatory Overtime

This is what the Department of Labor Says about the Mandatory Overtime Law:

Q. Is there a law that protects health care workers from being forced to work overtime?

Know Your Weingarten Rights!

Weingarten Rights apply during investigatory interviews. An investigatory interview occurs when (1) management questions an employee to obtain information; and (2) the employee is being asked to defend his or her conduct and/or has a reasonable belief that discipline or other adverse consequences may result from what he or she says.
