Registered Nurses at UW Medical Center Hold Candlelight Vigil to Highlight Concerns for Quality and Safe Patient Care

these negotiations," said Linda Machia, JD, Chief Spokesperson for WSNA UWMC Negotiating Team.

"Less rest between shifts is not safe and not acceptable. Any reductions in our benefits are not acceptable. Relying on temporary nurses instead of investing in our own permanent nursing staff is not acceptable. The RNs at UWMC are united in our goal of outstanding patient care, safe working conditions and a good quality of life for the nurses and patients at UWMC. We want to reach a fair agreement so we can continue to provide the best care for our patients," said Steve Krauss, RN, CNOR, WSNA Local Unit Chair for UWMC Registered Nurses.

The flame of the candlelight has long been a symbol for nursing since the days of Florence Nightingale. It represents the unity of nurses and the proud tradition of the profession that they exemplify every day. "We are gathered for this vigil tonight to reflect on the impact that these proposals could have on the welfare of the patients and nurses at this great hospital and the larger community. Just as these candles will light our steps when we walk this evening, we hope that this vigil will illuminate the issues facing UWMC nurses and puts us on a path towards a safe, fair, and rapid resolution," said Kim Armstrong, BSN, RN, President of WSNA.

Founded in 1908, WSNA is the professional organization representing more than 15,000 registered nurses in Washington State. WSNA effectively advocates for the improvement of health standards and availability of quality health care for all people; promotes high standards for the nursing profession; and advances the professional and economic development of nurses.
