Feedback Needed: Introcan IV Catheters

If you have used the new IV catheters that were rolled out at St. Joseph and have feedback you would like to share about your experience, please fill out the survey on Crossroads. You only have until February 16th to submit your thoughts on how the new catheter has been performing for your patients, including any issues with insertion and maintenance.

Online Form for Voluntary Low Census

The new online form you can use to request VLC has been live for a few weeks. We would love to hear your feedback on how the change in process has affected you, and if you have had any issues accessing and using the form. Please contact your Nurse Rep, Grace Chesterman (gchesterman@wsna.org) with your thoughts.

Please continue to diligently review your timecards for accuracy to ensure you are getting compensated for your work. If you have questions about how to read your timecard or the pay codes, please reach out to your HR/Payroll department for assistance.

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.
