Florida Caregivers at HCA-Affiliated Hospitals Share Victories at Delegate Assembly

March 31, 2016

1199SEIU Florida delegates at HCA East & West hospitals met recently to share victories and develop a plan of action to continue the progress we have made in improving patient care and our work environment.

By working together, we have been able to achieve significant victories, including:

• Medical Center of Trinity: increased supplies and more efficient delivery; better signage for areas where caregivers and patients could be exposed to infectious diseases

• University Hospital & Medical Center: the number of patients assigned to sitters has been decreased

• Blake Medical Center: addressed fairness issues with seasonal bonus pay

Caregivers can share ideas and solutions for issues that we are facing at our hospital by talking to an 1199SEIU delegate, or contact our 1199SEIU organizer!
