HCA workers rally at corporate headquarters for safer staffing

Last week, dozens of nurses and other hospital workers from HCA Healthcare hospitals in California, Florida, Texas, and Kansas rallied at the company’s headquarters in Nashville to call for improved staffing at its 180+ hospitals across the country.


Workers rallied during HCA’s annual shareholder meeting as shareholders voted on a resolution that would require the Patient Safety and Quality of Care Committee of HCA’s Board of Directors to review staffing levels and the impact it has on  patient safety and quality of care in HCA hospitals.


Through their union, HCA workers are demanding HCA invest some part of its sky-high profits in safer staffing, better wages, and improvements in working conditions and patient care delivery.
