UWHCA Healthcare Heroes Deserve REAL Communication

We were fighting for REAL communication with decision makers before the pandemic hit; but, now more than ever, we deserve it. We call on UWHCA to meet, via Zoom, with all employees at least twice weekly for at least 30 minutes for a Q and A (Not to be used to share communication that has been emailed, but rather, an opportunity to ask questions of Dr. Kaplan, Infectious Disease Team and other decision makers.)

Why is this important?

This is a hard and confusing time for all of us; but when we ask questions seeking clarity, 1 of 3 things happens:
1."We'll get back to you" or "I don't know",
2. Different supervisors provide different information,
3. We get policed for our "tone" and told not to ask questions (this is the most infuriating). Even if we don't like the answers, we deserve the truth: be it about COVID cases and available PPE, about the safety of re-sterilization, or, about how much the system received in CARES act and other funding from the federal government to offset the recent losses.
