Happy Nurses Week

  • Thanks

Your WSNA officers at Island Hospital wish all the nurses a Happy Nurses Week and want to express how privileged it is to work with such terrific nurse professionals!

A small token gift for each of you has been purchased, however, there was a problem with the delivery.   The gifts have been delayed unfortunately!  But they are coming!  (Oh, was I the only one who just had a supply chain PTSD moment recalling early COVID? )

But the delay caused by snail mail doesn’t change the message that each one of you is appreciated, admired and respected.   Thanks to each of you for all you do, every day, to further the health of the Anacortes community.

Gifts coming soon!   You all deserve an EXTRA day to celebrate so we’ll just create one when we deliver your gifts!

Resources and tools

Document unsafe conditions

If you find yourself in a situation that you believe creates unsafe conditions for patients or for you, you should complete a Staffing Complaint / ADO Form as soon as possible.

By completing the form, you will help make the problem known to management, creating an opportunity for the problem to be addressed. Additionally, you will be documenting the facts, which may be helpful to you later if there is a negative outcome.

WSNA also uses your ADO forms to track the problems occurring in your facility. When you and your coworkers take the important step of filling out an ADO form, you are helping to identify whether there is a pattern of unsafe conditions for you or your patients at your facilities. This information is used by your conference committee, staffing committee, and WSNA labor staff to improve your working conditions.

Representation rights

As a union member, you have the right to have a representative present in any meetings with management that could potentially lead to disciplinary action against you.

If called into a meeting with management, read the following to management when the meeting begins:

If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union representative be present at this meeting. Without representation present, I choose not to participate in this discussion.

Find out more about this crucial right and how to exercise it to ensure your fair treatment and protection.
