Home care nurses: Let’s talk about how to fix your scheduling, overtime and safety problems!

As preparation for contract negotiations, ALL Evergreen Home Health and Home Hospice nurses are invited to meet with your local WSNA unit officers and WSNA organizers. We can win needed changes on the issues you’re facing if we all come together. Starting now. Please choose and commit to the meeting that works the best for you and your schedule.


  1. SCHEDULING: Issues with caseloads, daily schedules and assignments, per diem requirements etc.
  2. MISSED BREAKS / WORKING OVER 8 HOURS A DAY: Did you know you can be terminated for falsifying a timecard? That includes NOT clocking that you missed a break and worked over your time but did not charge for it.
  3. ELECTRONIC FORMAT FOR REPORTING CONCERNS: Better than Safelinq and recognized as THE notification of safety events for nurses.
  4. IMPACT OF STAFFING AND NEW STAFFING LAW: Yes, there is a venue for raising YOUR voice to impact schedules and the care your patient receives.
  5. RECENT LEGAL WIN BY YAKIMA HOME HEALTH AND HOSPICE: Go to: https://www.wsna.org/news/2018/yakima-regional-home-health-hospice-nurses-win-nearly-2-9-million-for-unpaid-work-hours for details and how this impacts your daily work.
  6. STANDING STRONG TOGETHER: How we can support each other and present a unified force at the bargaining table to protect ourselves, our families and our patients and to preserve the job we love.
  7. NURSES MANAGED BY NON-NURSES: Update on your rights and responsibilities as a licensed professional RN.
