The Maryland Safe Care Initiative is a consortium of health care providers, labor unions, and community activists who have come together to push for workplace violence prevention legislation in our health care facilities.
Just like anyone else, health care workers deserve a safe place to work. Currently, health care workers are among the most assaulted workers in the nation. In the state of Maryland, health care workers experience violence in the workplace more than the national average! This is unacceptable.
Citing multiple violent incidents at their own facilities, 1199SEIU members in Maryland are joining what has become an important movement for health care workers throughout the nation: curbing workplace violence.
To pass this important and long overdue legislation, the Maryland Safe Care Initiative needs all hands on deck. Please take a moment to sign up to get involved with our campaign by receiving regular updates as we push this forward for both healthcare workers and the patients they care for.
