This facility has not been taking COVID protocols correctly. They have had so many exposures recently and are not taking action to protect their workers from spreading this virus. It’s crazy what a place will do to stay open and keep making money. Be aware. See Less

1. Patients known to be positive for Covid-19 in both Center 1 and Center 3 are not placed in isolation or negative pressure treatment rooms. 2. The employer has not conducted proper risk assessment regarding the need for respiratory protection when patients are brought into the facility... See More for treatment and thus ensuring proper protection for the employees. In numerous cases the providing of N-95 type respiratory protection or respirators with higher protection values for the workers to wear while within 6 feet of patients that are unknown or who are suspected or have tested positive for the Covid-19 virus or while treating these same patients. 3. The employer has not trained the workers for proper use, fit, or maintaining the respiratory protection. In particular the workers are not made aware of when to change out the protection once it is worn out or soiled. 4. The employer is not recording on the OSHA 300 logs workers that become infected with the Covid19 virus that may be missing work due to the infection. In addition the employer has not been posting the 300 log nor providing access or copies of the log when requested. 5. The employer has been retaliating against workers that are bringing in proper PPE from outside sources, including N95 masks and other protective equipment.

1) Employees in the emergency department are not provided with adequate supplies of facemasks for the number of employees and the duration of the work shifts. Only 150 facemasks are provided each day for use by the over 70 employees who work in the emergency department in... See More a 24hr period. 2) Employees in the emergency department are not provided with adequate supplies of N95s for the duration of the work shifts. Employees who elect to wear an N95 as facemask for added protection have to request the N95s through the medical supplies department and are only provided with five (5) N95s at the start of the work week, for use during the entire week at the rate of one per day. 3) N95s are only provided in one make and size. The smaller sizes needed by some of the emergency department staff who have requested them are not available, so a proper fit is not achieved during use. 4) Some emergency room employees are purchasing their own N95s in for use due to the limited availability and size options provided by the hospital. While Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPR) are required for interactions with known and suspected COVID cases, employees in the emergency department are electing to wear N95s for added protection due to routinely interacting with unconfirmed COVID cases during triage and behavioral health screening. 5) The ventilation in the emergency department does not include HEPA filters for all rooms where COVID patients are placed, and the air is recirculated throughout the building. 6) The building ventilation and filtration is not appropriate for the removal of contaminants from the air. This is resulting in construction dust from adjacent work areas entering the emergency department through the ventilation system. 7) Workers who are using PAPRs are exposed to black colored contaminants on the filter before the filters are changed out. 8) Employees and management in the emergency department have not been trained on the proper precautions to take when changing and disposing of used PAPR filters.

These are related to the OSHA ETS: The hospital restrains and interferes with nurses obtaining N95 masks. The hospital does not provide them on the units where RNs work. RNs may pick a mask up at the entrance or from a house supervisor. They are not provided... See More on the nursing units for usage as needed and per proper use. There have been several outbreaks of covid on the 4N unit of the nurses working there and the float pool nurses working there. We have names to provide. Nursing management stated to the union on Sept 7th it did not agree that the definition of a covid exposure was 15 minutes cumulative in a 24 hr period. Visitor entrances are not limited. Nurses report they are not getting notified of exposures. Physical distancing is not enforced. Breakrooms have no HEPA filters. The hospital does not screen employees for covid, the state clocking is is a declaration you are covid and covid symptom free. ER nurses are not required or encouraged to wear N95 masks or isolation gowns when going from room to room in the ER. Nurses were not informed that patients arriving for surgery and procedures were no longer being tested for covid prior to being cared for. Environmental cleaning is not occurring more. Hospital actively encouraging not to miss work for vaccines and symptoms. We request OSHA communicate with us as the Union Representative. We request an inspection.

Employees are not following the mask mandate put in place by the COVID Emergency Temporary Standard, and it is not being enforced by management at this location. Masks are often not being worn in necessary situations, and cloth face coverings are still in use by several employees... See More where the clinic does not have disposable masks readily available. This is all observed at the time of writing.

Hospital does not enforce the visitor's policy that it has posted, and several visitors enter past the screeners and get into the cafeteria, waiting areas, and patient rooms. it is to be 1 visitor per person and it is well over this at times. RNs report up... See More to 3 per visitor. Hospital just started fit testing in September for N95s. Nurses are given a color-coded dot to indicate their model of N95. If they don't have their model, they are given the most comparable model for their color-coded dot. They are not fit tested for the comparable models. The screeners are "stingy" with N95 masks at the entrance door. When nurses wear surgical masks and N95s, they are not worn as not as single use. Nurses are not wearing protection at least as protective as a N95 filtering face piece respirator when they are exposed to suspected or + COVID patients. Or, when exposed to patients who have not been screened for +COVID patients. ED and 4N, rooms 400-407(where covids are cohorted), have N95s on the units. The other units do not have them on the units, including the ICU, PAT Clinic, Pre-Op, Surgery, PACU, Rehab, 3N Med Tele, 3S CCU, 3E Neuro Ortho, SSU, Labor & Delivery, NICU. The RNs must ask a manager for N95s or leave units to get one. The Labor and Delivery RNs report being required to get N95s masks from the house supervisor, but it keeps changing places so it's confusing. They have no negative pressure room. Patients are only tested for covid if they have symptoms. 4N, rooms 400-407, covid cohort area, the trash and dirty linens from +covid rooms are dragged down the halls. Dirty food trays are carried from the +covid rooms and sometimes placed at the nurse's station before removing them. In Surgery area(Pre op, Surgery, PACU): They are not testing all patients, unless they are a high-risk procedure, but this does not make sense to the RNs because all are intubated and extubated. Testing makes it difficult for surgeons to ADD ON cases to the schedule , so they are not doing it. RNs bring it up to management and they say, "it will be looked at". 9/30 an email went out to the RNs saying all cases SCHEDULED after 9/27 would be tested prior to procedure, however; ADD ONs are not SCHEDULED. And the RNs report they ALREADY had cases scheduled out for 6 months with several doctors. This means these cases, because they were scheduled before 9/27, are not required to be tested. An RN gave an example of a surgery day recently, since 9/27, where 30 cases were scheduled, but only 4 were scheduled after 9/27, these were the only ones required to be tested by the hospital. House Supervisors(who pass thru all nursing units during their shifts) are not informed of what is an exposure or proper PPE: Oct 4th a Preop nurse was caring for a patient for several hours and the patients test came back + COVID. The RN had a level 3 surgical mask on and the patient had a level 1. The RN pushed the patient to the negative pressure room. A house supervisor was in the PACU as this occurred and as the RN returned to the Pre op area, she notified the super about this and what she had on. The super interrupted her and told her since she had a level 3(surgical mask)on she was OK. OSHA ETS requires protection at least as protective as an N95 filtering face piece respirator. The RN was not notified this was an exposure - she was with the patient well over 15 minutes in a surgical mask. Because the hospital did not consider this an exposure there was no contact tracing, none of the other RNs she works with were informed. This area has several RNs in common areas working together. 4N ONOGS unit multiple exposures: 7/29-8/2/21, patient admitted to 4N-ONOGS and on 8/2 tested + COVID, then was transferred to CDU. Resulted in, 9 RNs exposed, 3 PCTs and 1 Nurse Intern and 1 RN became positive who was training w/ another RN. 9/1, nurse worked as relief charge RN and tested positive on 9/7. 9/2 nurse tested positive on her shift and sent home. 9/5-9/6,
