Nurses Rally for Safe Staffing at City Hall
Rain or shine, NYSNA members are always ready to fight for safe staffing! On Wednesday, nurses and allies including the NYC CLC rallied on the steps of City Hall and testified at a City Council oversight hearing on the state of nursing. They shared their experiences with the severe staffing crisis and demanded hospital execs implement strong retention policies, including maintaining their health benefits.
Nurses also reminded the oversight committee and a representative of the Greater New York Hospital Association, who testified on behalf of NYC's richest hospital systems, that nurses are the ones caring for patients and demanding health equity—not hospital execs.
