All you have to do is:
After filling out a Workload Review Form on the SEIU mobile app, a copy will be directed to the manager you indicate, your SEIU Healthcare Union Representative, and you. The WLRF will help track the professional practice issues you are trying to resolve with your employer.
Yes. SEIU staff will input the information into the website and send you an email copy of the form.
A single WRLF might be brushed aside by the employer as a one-off; however, when nurses fill out a WLRF any time they are short-staffed or made to work in an unsafe environment, this demonstrates a pattern. Documenting and reporting to both the union and employer allows the union to bargain and push for more f loor resources and safer conditions. Workload Review forms are an essential resource that protects an employee from an unsafe situation out of their control.
As we tell all nurses, if you didn’t chart, it didn’t happen. Don’t let your employer continue to make you work in an unsafe environment - document it and empower your colleagues to do so as well to improve your working conditions.
Recording every unsafe incident and situation you encounter is vital. It not only holds your employer accountable, but it is essential for your nursing profession and provides evidence and proof to support you during management meetings, bargaining, union initiatives and important conversations with political leaders. The extra step of completing a WLRF can potentially protect your license when you’ve been placed in a difficult situation by your employer.
We know you are busy and have enough on your plate, but if it’s not documented, your employer could say it never happened. Workload Review Forms are an essential resource that protects an employee from an unsafe situation out of their control. Documenting and reporting to both the union and employer also allows the union to bargain and push for more floor resources and safer conditions.
