California Hospitals Urge Nurses Union to Stop H1N1 Scare Tactics
Date:10/20/2009

CNA's Planned Oct. 30 Strike is About Contract Negotiations, Not H1N1 Preparedness

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The California Hospital Association (CHA) is engaged with hospitals and state and local public health officials in a voluntary statewide effort to ensure that all hospital workers -- including registered nurses -- are vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus.

"Hospital caregivers are on the front lines in responding to the H1N1 pandemic," said CHA President and CEO C. Duane Dauner. "Although no one yet knows how rapidly the H1N1 flu may spread or how serious the illness may become, it's essential that the nurses and other clinicians who work in our community hospitals be given the highest level of protection possible against the virus so that they can continue caring for patients. The best protection against the H1N1 flu is to be vaccinated."

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that "vaccines are the most important tool we have for preventing influenza." Based on this expert advice, Dauner urges the California Nurses Association to join with CHA and state and public health officials to promote vaccinations to all health care workers. Additionally, hospitals and nurses should work together in a public education campaign aimed at helping to stop the spread of the disease.

Among the everyday actions recommended by the CDC are:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Stay home if you get sick
