Unknown Source started this petition to Mt. Sinai Medical Center

During this Coronavirus pandemic, hospitals all over the world are responsible in implementing appropriate care to its patients, staff, and those directly impacted within that hospital’s community. Evidently, healthcare workers are on the frontline of this crisis, honoring their ethical codes to provide the best care to those in need. However, it goes without saying that healthcare workers become a vulnerable group due to direct exposure. Upon shift completion, healthcare workers must return to their homes in hopes that their families and loved ones do not contract the newly identified coronavirus. While this is unfamiliar territory to most, the nursing community here at Mount Sinai Medical Center does not feel adequately prepared with sufficient materials and equipment to protect oneself or those infected, nor is there sufficient financial compensation when considering the risks encompassed. At present, neighboring hospitals are financially providing their healthcare workers with hazardous pay. We invite you to re-evaluate our current financial status during this time and request the same courtesy other employers have extended to their staff. We look forward to a prompt response and sufficient resolution.
