“The solidarity of nurses and the overwhelming support we received from the community forced hospital administrators to meet our demands for patient and nurse safety at the bargaining table,” said Sara Harkleroad, president of the Salem Registered Nurses Association and an oncology nurse at the Salem Regional Medical Center. “While we have not included minimum staffing standards in this contract, we will continue to urge hospital administrators to make this a mandate so that the safety of patients, nurses and all hospital health care workers is a top priority and requirement.”
