Why did the Hospital abandon this worker

Advertisements

Today I interviewed a healthcare provider her name is Kim she states she was assaulted by a patient while she was working her shift. During this interview, this is what she said. I was walking up to the nurse’s station and “bang” the patient sucker punched me in the back of the head with his fist. Two patients dragged me to safety. I woke up while the two patients dragging me to safety. Then the staff came to my side and told them to go and they got this.  I hit the door and the cement floor. The incident itself didn’t sound like it lasted a long time but the aftermath of this assault is still on. She spoke of the struggles of having to deal with physician appointments, workman comp, and other agencies.
This healthcare worker’s assault changed her life in a heartbeat.

Do nurses really need safe staffing?

Sheila Wilson, Nurse, and Advocate for safety in the workplace

Sheila Wilson’s Guest is Beckett Augat a nurse that worked in the Emergency room. She also is a Member and Representative of the Massachusetts Nursing Association. Beckett has been on this show before and shared with us the issues that she and all the nurses are dealing with in the hospital she has worked in for years. She has been on strike for 9 weeks, walking the sidewalks in front of St. Vincent’s hospital with hundreds of other nurses, community members, and friends. They are striking for the hospital to provide more staff. The nurses are taking care of too many patients and this makes it unsafe for the patient and themselves. She mentions negotiations aren’t going well. They have spent hours sitting at the negotiation table with no solutions. The hospital has put out a full-page ad in the newspaper to hire more nurses instead of thinking about the issues of lack of safe staffing.

Nurse Speaking out on why they are Striking

Sheila Wilson, Nurse, and Advocate for Safety in the Workplace

I will post one posting for each of the six individuals that spoke to Sheila Wilson Host of Stop Health Care Violence, at the strike site.

Beckett Augat was one of the 6 Individuals that was interviewed by Sheila Wilson at the Strike Site.

Sheila Wilson is speaking to Beckett Augat a nurse with many years of experience at ST. Vincents’ Hospital carrying a sign, while striking. She
has been walking out on the sidewalks. When asked “WHY are you striking? “ I am striking because “we have given this hospital many unsafe staffing forms” and not once did they respond. The patients deserve more, the patients come to us because of an issue and would like to be taken care of. They want good care and we want to give it to them. Not having enough staff is dangerous and unsafe to the patient and to the nurse.

You could feel the Solidarity among all the individuals that were participating in this strike and also when the drivers passing by would honk their car horns.  It truly was so amazing to see the support for these Nurses.

Please share this video for Beckett Augat one of the individuals that spoke with Sheila Wilson concerning the Nurses on Strike in Worcester.

If you could help the Nurses while they are on strike would be great. Help with the family needs the Nurses are dealing with waiting for Unemployment to start. Diapers are in great demand and many parents know just how expensive diapers are. You can help the Nurse and her/him Family with gift cards thru Amazon. Check out the items on Amazon.
