Calvary Health Care Centre Lenah Valley Campus – Coronary Care Unit (CCU)

Following ANMF correspondence to the Director of Clinical Services (DCS) ANMF were advised of the following via email from the DCS, “I am in acknowledgement of Emily’s letter. Having completed a period of consultation with the nursing team in CCU a decision has been made not to change the current shift pattern for existing staff and a letter to that affect has been provided to each team member.”

 Members have since raised concerns that any new employees to Coronary Care Unit (CCU) will be employed to work shorter shifts which will reduce the nursing hours for direct patient care. ANMF will be working closely with members to discuss the impact and what process of consultation will be undertaken by Calvary to implement this major change.
