Policy-makers are increasingly recognizing the benefits of community-based primary health care. That primary care is often delivered—especially in underserved communities—by Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs).
Workers at Livingston Hills Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Livingston, NY took matters into their own hands with a one-day picket July 19 to press management to settle a fair collective bargaining agreement and address the institution’s staffing issues. Facility owners initially refused to renegotiate participation in the Greater NY Health Benefit Fund, which workers fought for and won 15 years ago. The picket turned management around and at press time workers were negotiating back raises and seeking to address ongoing turnover at a nursing home, where frail and elderly residents count on continuity of care. “I’m exhausted. We are so short-staffed—everyone deserves better than this—workers and our residents. Livingston Hills can no longer delay settling our contract when we don’t have enough staff and quality care is at risk,” said Donna Decker, a Livingston Hills certified nursing assistant.
