Doug map

The upcoming candlelight vigil which is scheduled for December 21 at 5:30 p.m. has a new location. It is now in the Grand Ballroom at the Double Tree by Hilton Spokane City Center, due to expected extreme low temperatures.

We will be remembering Doug Brant, VNA RN who was tragically killed on the job while doing a home visit on December 1. The vigil is open to all community members, especially those who want to remember Doug, and give tribute to his years of nursing. Leaders from around the nation, as well as family members, have responded, and are coming in support, and in loving memory of Doug, and to support the nurses of Providence VNA. We are thankful to those who are taking the time, and effort to make this a truly special event.

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.
