Thousands of staffing complaints filed to NYS DOH

We help RN’s, Medical Professionals, and workers of all stripes to attain better pay, better working conditions, and to make their voices heard.

Last week, CWA reported approximately 8,000 staffing complaints from across the state, including 5,400 staffing complaints for Kaleida facilities, to the New York State Department of Health, highlighting the severe staffing crisis faced by frontline workers.  We are demanding that the State and our employer, Kaleida, take action to fix staffing in our facilities for ourselves and our patients.

5,400 is more than just a number; it represents the real challenges we face in our work.  These complaints, filed by frontline workers at Kaleida, document when our staffing plan ratios were violated, affecting our ability to provide the care our patients deserve and contributing to challenging working conditions.  This massive filing shows that we are serious about making things safer for everyone.

Thank you to each of our members that have filed. Thank you for helping speak up against our staffing, and campaigning for the care that our patients deserve.
