Nurses sound the alarm on ongoing safety concerns without a permanent OSHA standard to #ProtectNurses from Covid-19. With sky-rocketing Omicron cases and high patient loads, #nurses need strong protections, not weak guidelines! healthleadersmedia.com/human…

Unconscionable: As we battle the Omicron surge, @CAgovernor @GavinNewsom's @CAPublicHealth sends asymptomatic Covid-positive health care workers and those who've been exposed back to work — without isolation, sick leave, or testing. We must #ProtectNurses to #ProtectPublicHealth!

Nurses are so understaffed that we don't have enough to care for patients — and hospital conditions are only getting worse. “We barely get time to eat and even go use the bathroom. Even for the nurses, it’s not safe anymore." We need #SafeStaffingNow. washingtoninformer.com/nurse…

The hospital industry wants you to believe that Covid-19 is the reason for the so-called #NursingShortage. But nurses who've been fighting for #SafeStaffing for decades know the real reason: Unfettered greed. nytimes.com/2022/01/19/opini…

Nurses lit 481 candles at a vigil outside the White House last week to honor U.S. nurses lost to #Covid19. #Nurses will continue to die preventable deaths if President @JoeBiden doesn't act now to provide safer working conditions for RNs. abcnews.go.com/Politics/nurs…

As proud #UnionStrong nurses, today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his militant commitment to fighting injustice that robs us of our civil rights and our rights on the job. #MLKDay

Why are @CAgovernor @GavinNewsom and the state's public health leaders are putting the needs of health care corporations before the safety of patients and health care workers? Nurses want to spread care, not Covid! #ProtectNurses #ProtectPublicHealth

The crisis continues and nurses are still at risk. It's past time for a permanent @OSHA_DOL covid-19 standard for health care workers. @POTUS needs to keep his promise to the nation's nurses. @NationalNurses

The working conditions that our employers and our governments are telling nurses and health care workers to endure are grossly unfair and unsustainable! California nurses are are standing up to say: 📢 ENOUGH! 📢 #ProtectNurses #ProtectPublicHealth

At a vigil outside the White House, we honor the 481 nurses lost to Covid-19 – and demand that President Biden keep his promise to #ProtectNurses and prioritize public health. We can't afford one more nurse sidelined, lost to the profession, or lost to this world for good. 🕯️
