1199ers joined New York State Nurses Association, CWA District 1, DC37, UFT—United Federation of Teachers, NYSUT—A Union of Professionals in Albany on May 13, to demand that the New York State Health Department (NYS DOH) stand with healthcare workers to protect patients by enforcing safe staffing law.

“I went to Albany to fight for safe staffing and to encourage NYS DOH to hold our employers accountable,” said Terri Ross, RN from Niagara County. “Our staffing crisis isn’t fixed, and healthcare workers around the state joined together to demand that our voices be heard today.”
