Dear 121RN Member,
I have some good news and some bad news.
The good news is that SEIU has identified PPE suppliers of N95 masks that are approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Some hospitals agreed to purchase the N95s, and they will be delivered to hospitals next week. There are millions more in the pipeline.
SEIU informed your employers at HCA, Providence, and AHMC hospitals that these masks were available for immediate purchase for your hospital and the healthcare system you’re a part of.
The bad news?: Your healthcare system said "no thanks."
This is another example of your hospital putting bottom line profits over your safety and your patients' safety.
Please click here to sign this petition today to urge your hospital to accept these masks.
