HCA nurses protest unsafe PPE standards in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- Nurses are demanding better safety procedures and more personal protective equipment. HCA employees in Florida, Nevada and Kansas City will protest Tuesday. They say they're consistently short-staffed. Nurses claim the work schedule aims to save money, but it's overworking nurses and patient care is suffering.

They dont care about saving money...fucking hospitals will take every dime you have. And if you die under their watch they will go after what's left ...if anything...in your estate.

I have to agree with that they need to lower prices if they are going to do this. My relative battled cancer during the start of the COVID and in a room I was sitting the staff had to call me and tell me when to go get the car. The hospital was on lock down and acting like they were taking all precautions but they had all of us picking up the same phone with no one there to clean it. This didn't make sense to cut someone out of a job because of COVID but having people use the same unmanned phone with nothing to clean it with.

The hospital was St. Luke's East in Lee's Summit.

They should quit and wait tables. Restaurants seem to have endless supplies of PPE.

Their social workers there act like they are your friends, but they are looking for ways to set you up and get money out of you.

I'm tired of answering, "Do you feel safe at home?" when I go to the doctor.

Started answering that dumbass question with, "Hell yeah! I have enough ammunition to take over a small country! Why the hell wouldn't I feel safe?"

"Jabari Brisport has done the math, and it doesn’t add up. In the richest country in the world, nurses fundraise for PPE, teachers pay for crayons, and billionaires get tax breaks. Growing up in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, the 33-year-old public school math teacher has seen firsthand the struggles of the working class, and he’s not satisfied with the way things have gone. After a 2017 run for city council, the Democratic Socialist led this year’s 25th district primary for the New York State Senate with over half the vote. With a Yale School of Drama degree and a Bernie Sanders endorsement under his belt, Brisport has declared victory as New York’s first openly gay Black state legislator."

Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.

Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as well—everywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US.

Join DSA to further the cause of democratic socialism in your town and across the nation.

Doesn’t socialism mean that the government will own and run everything?
Hasn’t socialism been discredited by the collapse of Communism in the USSR and Eastern Europe?
Private corporations seem to be a permanent fixture in the US, so why work towards socialism?
Won’t socialism be impractical because people will lose their incentive to work?
Why are there no models of democratic socialism?
But hasn’t the European Social Democratic experiment failed?
Aren’t you a party that’s in competition with the Democratic Party for votes and support?
If I am going to devote time to politics, why shouldn’t I focus on something more immediate?
What can young people do to move the US towards socialism?
If so many people misunderstand socialism, why continue to use the word?
