As nursing home workers, you provide critical health care, services, and support. Nursing home workers from all backgrounds – black, white, and brown – care deeply about their work. Yet, as the current pandemic has shown again, our long-term care system is broken with poor staffing levels, serious quality care issues, a lack of PPE, and low wages.
Much of our nursing home system is motivated by the need for corporate profits, not quality care and worker protections. I understand that there are so many challenges right now. It is more important than ever that we stand together.
We are asking all nursing home members to complete this survey about what you have experienced so far during the pandemic. Together, we will keep fighting for the important changes that nursing home workers need for themselves, their families, and the residents for whom you provide care.
