Hospital Workers Complain of Unsafe Conditions

Hospital Workers Complain of Unsafe Conditions

The Oakland Tribune

April 09, 2009

“Administration and management at Fairmont work zealously every day to not only ensure that quality, compassionate patient care is delivered, and also to ensure that the morale of the staff remains high,” the ACMC statement reads. “This is a daily challenge particularly in light of recent national and state financial cutbacks.”

The rally also gave the union a chance to unveil what they say is a new whistle-blowers hot line for ACMC workers. The number, 877-687-1021, will be available for workers to call with any wrongdoing they see at the hospital so it can be documented by union officials.

Lillie Ray, who has worked at the hospital for six years, said she was attacked by a patient with an infectious disease. She said some workers are scared to complain about safety for fear they will lose their jobs. “Something needs to be done,” Ray said. “People need to know what’s going on.”
