Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Hospitals preparing for a nursing work stoppage have very few resources to turn to for guidance. There is little, if any, published literature from hospitals that have had this experience. Several Magnet designated hospitals have nurses with union representation. These hospitals have demonstrated that this model can be achieved. These same hospitals may find themselves at some time in our situation. This presentation will recount how a large academic medical center prepared for, managed through and successfully completed a work stoppage. In order to prepare, planning and organization of the entire hospital is of utmost importance. The need to engage labor counsel and risk management will be required to assist the institution in understanding the labor laws and union contracts so that informed decisions can be made. Nursing work stoppages are not just nursing concerns; the work stoppage effects every department. The development of a contingency plan, maintaining quality patient care, determining if temporary nurses will be hired are just a few of the items that must be decided in the planning. It is important to determine what operations will continue during the work stoppage. The decision needs to be made as to how patients will be transferred to other hospitals if they require services have been discontinued. The community also is affected and the need to assure their health needs can still be met must be communicated. Regulatory agencies will visit the institution during a work stoppage. The hospital will need to know how to prepare and what information to provide to these regulatory representatives. Safety for all involved in the work stoppage must be planned for. This involves those who will be working as well as the striking staff. How to prepare for the return of the nursing staff as well what types of situations may occur when they return is important. What lessons were learned as well as what may have been done differently will
