When you’re sick and need to stay home, we know you’re not just taking care of yourself – you’re putting your patients first. As Nurses, many of us work with immunocompromised patients and we know the importance of staying home when we’re sick. We shouldn’t be penalized for doing so.
Since 2013, CRONA and the hospitals have had contract terms regarding attendance that provide some certainty to Nurses about when and for what they can receive attendance points, but now the hospitals want the flexibility to change their attendance policies. CRONA’s concern is that if the attendance policies are changed, it won’t be for the better – for both nurses and patients.
CRONA is standing for at attendance policy that respects our nurses and protects our patients. Let us know your thoughts on attendance. Send your CRONA representatives a note at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your story.
