The North Bay Jobs with Justice Workers Rights Board will hold a hearing onSaturday, May 6, to investigate employees’ concerns with working conditions at Marin General Hospital and how those conditions impact patient safety.
Marin General Hospital is a facility that touts its ability to meet the health care needs of the people of Marin County while keeping with the values and needs of the community. The hospital has won awards for its quality of service, safety, and care. Many of the individuals responsible for ensuring the hospital meets its high standards – the employees – have brought concerns with their working conditions to the North Bay Workers’ Rights Board. Worker complaints allege that staffing cuts that impact departments including CSU (cardiac), ICU, and surgical; outsourcing the work of qualified staff to out of state companies, and automating positions that interact directly with patients, have led to higher turnover in a hospital that appears to place the bottom-line above quality care for its patients.The Workers’ Rights Board, which consists of concerned elected officials, as well as members of faith, labor, and community organizations, will provide a public forum where hospital employees can bring their complaints,and give Marin General Hospital management a chance to respond. The Board will then provide recommendations to management and workers in order to facilitate a resolution to the issues addressed.
