Thanks to the voices of SEIU healthcare leaders, Mercy Health Partners has changed their visitor policy to improve the safety of healthcare workers and patients in their facilities. After the Governor released her recommendations for only essential vistors, Mercy continued to allow non-essential visitors into the facility. Healthcare workers felt unsafe, and through their advocay the policy was changed and implemented yesterday. We fought hard for to make sure the plan was changed, and we will continue to fight to ensure the policy is enforced properly. The new visitor policy is not listed on the Mercy Website.
