Nurses & Firefighters Join Forces to Fight Emergency Room Danger at Inland Valley Medical Center

seeking local elected official support for a dedicated dispatch nurse at Inland Valley Medical Center. The nurses are members of the Southwest Riverside Nurses Association, who are being organized by the United Nurses Associations of California/Union of Health Care Professionals (UNAC/UHCP).

“For months now, nurses and firemen have been asking the hospital to put patients first by ensuring a dedicated MICN in the emergency department. A Mobile Intensive Care Nurse needs to focus on working with paramedics to save lives in emergency situations. Inland Valley Medical Center must put patient safety first and ensure that MICNs are not assigned emergency patients as well as being responsible for answering paramedic calls,” said Inland Valley MICN Dave Colmer.
