We’re united to ensure each patient that comes to Harborview receives excellent care. When that can’t happen due to a lack of resources and short staffing, we do everything we can to make up for the system failures. It’s time UW stops relying on us to pass the test for them.
UW is earning a failing grade when it comes to staffing. Many studies show increase patient loads, impact patient outcomes and drive healthcare worker burnout and turnover. While our personal experience and the data shows we are working short, management continues to be slow to take action. Executives may enjoy seeing huge profits, but we know that profit is coming at a significant cost.
