More than 100 McLaren Lapeer Region nurses along with community members rallied on Sept. 23rd, to tell CEO Bart Buxton to put patients first. The MNA nurses have been fighting for safe staffing at the hospital for years.
Your McLaren Lapeer Region NURSES are fighting for YOU!
The registered nurses at McLaren Lapeer Region care deeply about their patients and their community. That's why they are demanding a solution to the chronic understaffing that they believe puts their patients at serious risk.
After months of trying to work with management, staffing remains a concern for the nurses.
There’s no debating the facts: When a hospital fails to put enough nurses on duty, patient safety suffers. Hospitals create an unsafe patient care environment. No matter how hard one nurse works, the lack of appropriate nurses is unsafe for patients.
Studies show that short nurse staffing leads to more patient falls, surgical and respiratory infections, medication errors and even deaths.
That’s why the McLaren Lapeer registered nurses are saying, “Enough is enough!” Their first obligation is to advocate for their patients and their needs.
CEO Bart Buxton has the power to give the nurses what they need to provide safe patient care. Please sign the petition today to support the nurses and tell Bart Buxton that patients deserve SAFE STAFFING AT ALL TIMES!
