Same Day Surgery-Days
Hello, WSNA nurses of Skyline Hospital. We at WSNA are still deeply saddened by the loss of Nurse Rep Mara Kieval who was an amazing woman, and fierce advocate for nurses. I consider it an honor to come and work with all of you in a role that I know Mara deeply cared about.
I have reached out to the local unit officers, and I plan on being there in person in the immediate future to be available to meet and hear from all the nurses. More to come soon on when that will be. I am available by phone, virtual meeting, or in-person meetings, depending on the needs.
I want to hear from you. If you have concerns or ongoing or unresolved issues which WSNA can help with, please contact me. I look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible and working together. You can reach me at BPercival@wsna.org or call me at my office number, 206-929-1845, or mobile at 206-471-0876.

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.
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.
