Rockford Scanner™: “Patients Over Profits”



RS Source asked if we could share the following and bring awareness:

Time and time again the nurses of Mercyhealth as well as members of the community have stood in direct opposition of Javon’s mishaps and shortcomings when it comes to providing access to healthcare in Rockford. In order to further fight Javon, the nurses at Mercyhealth have boldly decided to move forward in forming a union so that our voices, that were STRIPPED from us, can finally be heard. By forming a union we can guarantee that something as simple as life saving medication and supplies can ALWAYS be stocked in our level 1 trauma center. Under Javon’s reign patient care and patient safety has taken a backseat. It’s time for patients to be more important than his profits.

There have been 3 nursing staff members that have been illegally terminated in accordance with the National Labor Relations Act for working to form a union with our co-workers at Mercyhealth.
We are fighting for access to life saving supplies and equipment for our patients, safe staffing, and stopping Javon’s further disinvestment in our community.

The community needs to be made aware that because of Javon’s deceit, resources have been stripped from the Rockton Ave campus, making it impossible for the staff to adequately provide care for their patients. This “standby” ER is functioning with less resources and capabilities than an immediate care. This further highlights the healthcare disparities on the west side of Rockford.

We ask that the community stand in solidarity with us, while we continue to bring to light what is going on at both Rockton and Riverside campuses, as well as supporting our union organizing efforts.
