This bill is our sponsored legislation which will bring parity to the hospital inspections process. Under current law in the California Labor Code, CalOSHA is required to give workers the opportunity to speak with the department inspector or investigator without hospital management present. SB 322 would provide consistency in the system and ensure that CDPH hospital inspectors get a complete picture of what is going on in a hospital by mandating the same process.
SB 567 is our sponsored legislation which will create a worker’s compensation rebuttable presumption for hospital employees who provide direct patient care in an acute hospital setting for issues such as infectious disease, cancer, musculoskeletal injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and respiratory illness.
CNA is in opposition to this bill which would prohibit a public employer from deterring or discouraging a public employee or applicant from choosing not to become a union member. The bill would also prohibit a public employer from taking adverse action against a public employee or applicant for electing to not become or remain a union member.
CNA is in strong support of this bill, which will protect community members by allowing law enforcement to use deadly force only when they have no other option for preventing imminent death or serious bodily injury.
This bill would extend eligibility for full-scope Medi-Cal benefits to individuals of all ages who are otherwise eligible for those benefits but for their immigration status. The bill would also delete provisions delaying implementation until the director makes the determination described above.
Celebrate Nearly 20 Years of California's Nurse-to-Patient Ratios!
Nurses fought long and hard for nurse-to-patient ratios because nurses care for their patients. Listen as RNs who were directly involved in the struggle for ratios talk about the fight, and the excitement of winning one of the landmark patient gains in the country and the ONLY patient ratios law in the United States.
