1301 N Meade Street, Appleton, 5-6 P.M.
Members and allies are rallying on Monday, October 21, 2019 to tell ThedaCare – Appleton to put patient safety first and invest in their employees. The final offer provided by the employer did not address the core issues of negotiations – recruiting and retaining well trained staff to be able to provide quality care in a safe, sterile environment to our patients and community.
The staffing shortages have direct impacts on patient care and patient safety. They cannot fill the vacated positions fast enough to not be chronically understaffed, and when they do fill them, the new staff cannot be adequately trained, as the existing staff have too significant a workload to properly train.
