UPHS-Marquette nurses deliver patient safety report to MDHHS
Nurses employed by UPHS-Marquette delivered a report documenting their concerns regarding incidents of unsafe patient care to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services at 4 p.m. Thursday.
The nurses are in the middle of a contract dispute with hospital management, and have been since April 2017. A previously agreed upon contact extension expired on July 28.
The nurses asked for an investigation into the Duke-Lifepoint owned hospital, as they believe their documented concerns are being disregarded by management.
The report has more than 200 forms documenting more than 780 incidents of unsafe patient care conditions. The records have been collected since January 1, 2017.
At an event held Thursday at 4 p.m., the nurses shared highlights from the report, spoke about conditions in the hospital, and delivered the report to the MDHHS.
UPHS-Marquette released a statement regarding the report:
