A recent OSHA inspection found numerous problems, including the use of improper PPE for nurses. Some nurses were forced to purchase respirators after an inspection found no violation. The union denied the claims, and hospital officials would not comment on the pending lawsuits. Despite the OSHA violations, Community First is negotiating its first union contract with a local hospital. The nurses are worried about the policies the hospital follows and the number of patients it treats. They are also concerned about the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 in the city.
The CEO of Community First, whose contract with the hospital was not settled yet, says he is optimistic about the future of the organization. The company has been in trouble with the state since the last OSHA inspection, but it’s still a big step forward. The CEO says the hospital’s current financial situation is causing a lot of problems and that the new CEO is counting on Democratic legislators to pass policies that improve patient care.
