We, the undersigned CNA represented Nurses of UCSF Medical Center, demand the needs of our Nurses be met in the face of this COVID-19 pandemic to protect ourselves, our patients, and our community! We urge UCSF to uphold the highest standards possible as we all work together to prevent the transmission of this virus and support those affected, within our facilities and the greater community.

If Nurses aren’t safe, then patients aren’t safe!

UCSF Nurses Demand the Following:

  • UCSF will provide nurses with, minimally, N95 masks (or higher respirator), along with face shield and contact precautions, for all suspected and confirmed COVID-19 patients, complying with the Cal/OSHA standards for aerosol precautions
  • UCSF RNs will be promptly notified of potential or actual COVID-19 exposure
  • UCSF RNs will have prompt access to testing if potentially or actually exposed to COVID-19
  • For work related COVID-19 exposures, UCSF will provide “Precautionary Leave,” complying with Cal/OSHA standards; if precautionary removal is recommended, the employee is to retain all benefits during that period, including pay
  • Our CNA contract will be maintained and upheld in all regards, but specifically, Article 23 in relation to the prioritization of career and per diem Nurses, in that order, for available shifts
  • UCSF will provide frontline healthcare workers with the highest standards of workplace safety and PPE as they move to reopen services and procedures

For more information, contact your UCSF nurse rep., CNA labor rep. or email UCDivision@calnurses.org
