  • NJNU protests outside to demand better staffing ratios

    LIVINGSTON — Sicker patients, more blood to draw, piles of paperwork and hours-long backlogs at the emergency department brought unionized nurses of Saint Barnabas Medical Center out to rally in front of the Livingston hospital Tuesday. To read this article, click here

  • 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:

    1. Please do not sign that you fully understand something if you are unsure.
    2. If you find yourself in a situation that you feel is not safe for your patient or your license, please notify your supervisor as such. If they are hesitant to respond then, endorse the liability of that patient to your supervisor.
    3. Try to take your breaks or your lunch, it is not enough to get paid for the time. Everyone needs a mental health break. When a nurse takes their break or lunch, it forces management to address the staffing situation because they are forced to provide coverage.
